Microsoft’s Surface Duo will be up for grabs in a few weeks’ time but we already have its first Geekbench run. The version in the test appears to be the base 6/128GB unit, powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset and its result is in line with that of flagships powered by last year’s SoC.
The Duo managed a 762 single-core score and 2,867 points in the multi-core department. A quick comparison to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold which is powered by the very same chipset reveals the Duo managed slightly better multi-core performance by roughly 200 points. Overall, the Surface is managing similar Geekbench scores to Snapdragon 855+ phones. It remains to be seen how Microsoft optimized its phone to achieve the small performance gains.
