Samsung phone pops up on Geekbench, could be a Galaxy S Active
Samsung has a long history of making rugged smartphones and even though we havent seen one since the Xcover 4 back in 2017, we might be getting a successor pretty soon. A new listing on Geekbench revealed an upcoming Samsung SM-G889F with last years Exynos 9810 processor from the S9 family and 4GB RAM. It pushed out 3,130 points in the single-core test and 9,050 in the multi-core department and runs on Android 9 Pie.
The phone in question is believed to be a ruggedized version of the regular Galaxy S9 and was even shown on video earlier this year by Roland Quandt. According to Quandt, the phone features a 5.2-inch Quad HD display with a single 12MP camera around the back.
Other rumors point that this could be a new premium midranger to succeed the Samsung A8s with a price tag in the $500-600 range. We should be hearing more about this phone in the coming weeks and we'll make sure to keep you updated.
