The Samsung Galaxy J8 is back at Geekbench, but this time with a different chipset. Two or three weeks back we saw it with an Exynos 7870 chipset at its heart (that was the SM-J800FN variant), now there’s a Snapdragon 625 there (this is the SM-J805G rendition).
This could be a “Plus” model, Galaxy J8+, with a slighter quicker chipset and more memory. Both versions of the phone ran Android 8.0 Oreo. This J805G demonstrate has 4GB of RAM while the past model we saw had 3GB. Both chipsets have octa-center Cortex-A53 processor but are timed in an unexpected way – 1.8GHz versus 1.6GHz for the Galaxy J8+.
We suspect that the storage will be different too with the increment in price. It stays to be checked whether there will be a non-Plus adaptation (J800) with a Snapdragon chipset or not. That aside, the FN version will probably be accessible in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East while the G variant is likely made a beeline for South America and parts of Asia.
