Samsung Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 SoC on board tested on AnTuTu?
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC on board (SM-G935A for US carrier AT&T) has reportedly passed through the AnTuTu benchmark site for testing. But what about the version with Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC? According to a new post on Weibo, this version has just passed through the benchmark site for testing.
Samsung Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 under the hood tested on AnTuTu
On AnTuTu‘s official Weibo account (translated to English above), the benchmark site announced that the version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 with the Exynos 8890 SoC has passed through their tests. Apart from revealing that the Exynos version of the S7 is being tested, the post reveals what we’ve already heard from past rumours. The benchmark reveals that the S7 will feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD). In the photography department, the S7 tested on AnTuTu features a new 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. The device tested features 64 GB of internal storage. On board is 4 GB of RAM. Lastly, the device tested runs Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). We’d actually be surprised if ran anything lower that Android 6.0. The model number of the S7 tested on AnTuTu is “SM-G930F.” “F” stands for unlocked international versions. This is in line with what we’ve heard in the past, which is the international version of the Galaxy S7 will feature the Exynos 8890 SoC.
We’ve learned from past reports that the Galaxy S7 will feature a reversible Type-C USB port, which allows for faster data transfer, faster charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the cable the wrong way ever again. Reports also claim that the S7 will feature a microSD card slot, which was absent in last year’s S6 and S6 Edge. There are also reports that claim that the S7 will be water proof, unlike the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.
Of course, since Samsung is yet to lift the lid on the Samsung Galaxy S7, take this with a pinch of salt.
So when do we get to see the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge make their official debut? The common consensus is Samsung will officially unveil their next flagship on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain, a day before MWC 2016 kicks off in the country.
