As noted by SamMobile (via 9to5Google), this beats 5,130 GPU score from the Galaxy S21 Ultra, equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. What's more, it even tops Apple's line of iPhone models, including the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a score of 7,442. According to the results, it beats the iPhone 12 mini's score of 7,668.

In our Galaxy S21 Ultra review, Samsung's flagship nabbed a Geekbench 5 multi-core score of 3,440. The best Android phones, including the OnePlus 9 Pro with a score of 3,685, are still topped by Apple's devices — the iPhone 12 Pro Max scored 4,111 in our benchmark tests.
While the 3DMark Wild Life used in the leaked benchmark tests and compares the graphics performance in devices, it appears Samsung's Exynos chip could do well in a Geekbench test, too.
