The launch of the first Galaxy J series phone this year might just be around the corner.

A device code-named SM-J805G, believed to be the Samsung Galaxy J8+, has shown up on processor-benchmarking site Geekbench. The listing reveals that the smartphone will be unveiled with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor in tow. The J8+ also comes with 4GB of RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo.

How does this differ with the Exynos 7870-powered SM-J800FN model that surfaced on the same site a couple of weeks ago? The Samsung Galaxy J8, as it’s thought to be called, also features the latest Android version. But every other known spec is a downgrade from the former.

We are talking about the regular J8 getting a slightly slower chipset and less memory. Its octa-core Cortex-A53 processor is clocked at just 1.6GHz instead of the Plus variant’s 1.8GHz. And it only has 3GB of RAM instead of 4GB.

However, if you compare the two smartphones’ performance using the synthetic-benchmark tool, you won’t see that much of a difference. Check this comparison made by tech site GSMArena.

The chip being used is a dead giveaway. As in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S9 series and other recent releases, the variant that the Korean tech giant brings here is the one that is powered by its own Exnynos chip.

Hopefully, the price of the Samsung Galaxy J8 won’t go the way of those of the Galaxy Note 8, A8, and S9 lineups. That is, up.
