Galaxy Z Flip 6 US version shines on Geekbench before launch

The development of Samsung’s next-gen foldables is in full swing. The company is preparing to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 sometime in July this year. Leaks have already revealed a thing or two about the devices. The US version of the Flip model has just surfaced on a benchmarking platform to confirm its processor. It appears to deliver impressive GPU performance.

Galaxy Z Flip 6 spotted on Geekbench with impressive GPU performance

Samsung has always used Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipsets in its foldables. It will be no different this year, a Geekbench listing for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 reveals. The device appeared on the benchmarking platform with the model number SM-F741U, which is its US version. The global version should be SM-F741B. As usual, the listing doesn’t explicitly mention the chipset, but there are enough clues.

It is an octa-core processor featuring one super core clocked at 3.40GHz, three mid-cores at 3.15GHz, two more mid-cores at 2.96GHz, and two efficiency cores at 2.27GHz. This is none other than the Samsung-exclusive variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The chipset powers the Galaxy S24 Ultra globally and the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ in some markets, including Europe and India.

While we expected the Galaxy Z Flip 6 to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 For Galaxy chipset, its GPU score caught us by surprise. The foldable’s Adreno 750 GPU helped it achieve a Vulkan score of 15,084 on Geekbench v6. As noted by SamMobile, this is similar to the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Since the latter is a bigger phone with a larger cooling system, this is an impressive GPU performance from the new Flip.

That said, the lack of a large cooling system could affect the Galaxy Z Flip 6’s sustained performance. It may have to rely on CPU and GPU throttling to keep the temperature in check when used continuously for a long time. The device may not be ideal for long hours of graphic-intense gaming, but it shouldn’t stutter during heavy usage such as video editing and AI processing.

The new Flip could come in a 12GB RAM variant

This Geekbench listing for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 reveals 8GB of RAM. However, it may not be the only RAM variant of the phone. Since Samsung has started 12GB RAM on its mid-range devices, the new foldable should also come in a 12GB RAM variant. The new Flip will run Android 14 out of the box, likely with One UI 6.1.1 on top. Stay tuned for more leaks and rumors about the upcoming Samsung foldables.
