This newly surfaced report belongs to the Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S7 smartphone, which the company was opting for a new developement project to fast track work on the next Galaxy S flagship, could make an appearance as early as possible. Codenamed Lucky-LTE, spotted on the Geekbench database recently, points at the new Samsung Galaxy S7.
Why that Samsung using the number seven for its new flagship, because 7 is the lucky number for ages, and it doesn’t tage a genius to figure out why the Galaxy S7 is being termed “Lucky” by the Korean Electronics. Apart the reason behind the codename, we are sure you’ll get more stuff pretty soon.
The Galaxy S7 specs emerged, which being tested with a new Exynos 8890 Octa-Core chipset, most likely be the M1 Mongoose SoC that reared its face a couple of weeks ago. The chipset scored impressively in the benchmark results, but the prototype S7, which appeared recently doesn’t do well. Reason, why? It’s because the the device was tested with the CPU at a lower frequency, and that 2.3GHz is the final aspect.
It was although surfaced on AnTuTu and being tested with a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, revealing that Samsung is testing both the Exynos 8890 / Exynos M1 Mangoose with custom CPU cores and S20 on a prototype Galaxy S7 smartphone.
Insiders told to sources that the Galaxy S7 is being tested with Samsung’s screaming fast UFS 2.0 storage, but the way to make it work with SD cards, the company has found a better proportion. The memory controller on SD cards and the UFS 2.0 storage aren’t compatible with each other, making it impossible to co-exist on the same hardware, nevertheless, Samsung may be trying out interfacing techniques to get around the limitation, though it would be best to not get too excited that the final product will bring back expandable storage support to Samsuung flagships.
Samsung is supposedly testing a new 20-megapixel ISOCELL camera on the Galaxy S7, and also a project called the “all lens cover.” Interestingly, it’s just a cover that will add additional lenses to the device’s camera setup, but no idea on it as yet on how and what actually it gonna be working on, and helpful.
The listing on AnTuTu benchmarks reveals Galaxy S7 specs. With a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440) HD dsiplay, 4GB of RAM, 64GB on on-board storage, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, 16MP main and 5MP Selfie camera. CPU it is powered by a Snapdragon 820 – scoring at 65775 points, overall. While the smaretphone scrored 23597 points in the GPU performance test, etc.
Recent report also suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will debut in two variants, compact version with 5.1″ Quad-HD screen along with 5.7-inch model. So, now what? Just wait for the official unveil from the South Korean Electronics, and take the aforementioned with a pinch of salt, for now.
