If not rumors or leaked images, FCC visits, TENAA certifications, or benchmark tests tell us that a mobile device is coming very soon. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been a hot topic lately and with all the rumors going around, this Geekbench page will somehow calm the fans down. Well, just a bit because we’re certain that the information we got will excite those people waiting for the next premium flagship phone from the South Korean company.
We all know that the Galaxy S7 will use two kinds of chipset–Samsung’s very own Exynos 8890 and a Snapdragon 820 by Qualcomm. An Exynos version was spotted on AnTuTu last week after the S820 model was benchmarked. This week, the AT&T variant of the S7 passed through Geekbench 3 with good scores. We say good not great because the Snapdragon processor’s score on multi-core wasn’t as impressive as on single-core. Between the Exynos 8890 and S820, the latter scored higher at 2,282 versus 1,873.
The Galaxy S7 is listed with model number SAMSUNG-SM-G930A on Geekbench. On multi-score, the Snapdragon 820 even trailed behind last year’s Exynos 7420. Should we panic then? Not yet because the Galaxy S7’s software is still not finalized. The new Galaxy S phones will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow so there may still be improvements in numbers from now until the official product launch.
