With just a couple of months to go before the Samsung Galaxy S11 release date arrives, fans are definitely excited to get their hands on the brand’s newest flagship. But even Apple fans might even be tempted to switch brands based on the leaked features and specs of the upcoming phone floating around the net.

Samsung Galaxy S11 Might Be Faster Than iPhone 11 Pro

Apple’s current high-end smartphone, the iPhone 11 Pro, is the best the American brand has to offer at the moment, Naturally, it is packed with cool feature and its specs are indeed top-of-the-line.

But the upcoming Galaxy S11 might beat the Apple phone in one area. The Korean brand’s next flagship will be faster than the iPhone 11 Pro when it comes to performing complex tasks, according to Tech Radar.

In some countries where Samsung does not use its own Exynos chipset such as the United States, the Galaxy S11 will likely use the Snapdragon 865. The publication then compared the Snapdragon 865 benchmark results to that of the A13 Bonic chipset, which the iPhone 11 Pro uses.

The Snapdragon 865 has a multi-core score of 3,450 compared to A13 Bionic chipset's multi-core score of 3,337. Larger tasks that can be broken down such as image processing, video rendering, and 3D gaming will be processed faster the higher the multicore score is.

On the other hand, Snapdragon 865 only got a single-core score of 931 while the iPhone 11 Pro Max’ single-core score is 1331. A single-core compute score is used as a gauge of how fast the device will perform simple tasks or those apps whose processes can't be broken down into multiple parts.

The conclusion is that while the Galaxy S11 is a bit slower than the iPhone 11 Pro when performing simple tasks, it still outpaces the latter when it comes to complex tasks such as gaming or image manipulations. It is also important to note that app developers are starting to spread the workload of their applications into multiple cores which could make the single-core advantage of the iPhone become less important in the future.
