Geekbench score shows that European Galaxy Z Fold6 units will use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 too

We’ve seen a couple of benchmark results from the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 so far with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 at the helm – not surprising, since that was the US model (SM-F956U). The Geekbench database now contains a test result from a European unit (SM-F956B) too and it’s still using the Snapdragon.

Leaks have suggested that the cheaper Galaxy Z Fold FE will use a mix of Snapdragon and Exynos chips. A report by The Elec claimed that the flagship Galaxy Z Fold6 version will only use the Snapdragon globally – and now there is proof of that, thanks to Geekbench.

This particular unit had 12GB of RAM, which should remain the base capacity. Will it be the only RAM option like on the Z Fold5? It might be, we haven’t seen any evidence of a 16GB model yet. That said, the cheaper Z Fold FE is also expected to offer 12GB of RAM, so the flagship model might need a higher capacity option to maintain its premium status.

As for software, there isn’t much to say – the Galaxy Z Fold6 will launch with One UI 6.1 (or possibly 6.1.1) on top of Android 14 and should receive 7 years of support just like the S24 series.

PS. the scores from the US and European Galaxy Z Fold6 units are different, but that doesn’t mean much when looking at pre-release units (and we don’t even know whether they were run at Light performance mode or not).
