Early benchmarks of the Galaxy S7 running Geekbench have surfaced online, alongside the Galaxy S7 Plus renders showing its sizes as well. Now, 2016 is shaping up to be very interesting year for smartphone fans who prefer to allow Android and Samsung to handle their needs. Recently, not exactly it was speculated that Samsung will use 2016 to introduce not one, but three variants of its new flaghsip device, the Galaxy S7 – each running on different processor. Two of those purported devices are alleged to carry Exynos chips, and the other to ship with an integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU. Today, it has apparently given a look at how those devices perform via leaked benchmark results.
The Galaxy S7 benchmarks belongs to one of the allegedly leaked variant of three onto the web back in October this year. Identified that the device in question was sporting one of Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 chipsets. Managed to rack up a respectable single-core and multi-core score of 2,294 and 6,908 respectively. Acceptable results for a device that was still months away from an official release. Results from the Snapdragon 820 powered Galaxy S7 variant have appeared as well.
Benchmark results which unexpectedly come from the S7 version carrying the SD820 SoC, have been leaked to the world via Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo and allow for some on-time and initial comparison between the two devices variants. Leaked information shows that this version of the Galaxy S7 manages a single-core of 2,456 points, and the multi-core score of 5,432 points. Admirable that those purchasing this model can expect a slight increase in performance on a single-core level, but can also expect to lag behind the Exynos variant on multi-core tasks.
Samsung is also touted to have been involved in ditching the ARM stock designs of CPUs in favor of their own custom CPU cores in these chipsets. The Galaxy S7 Snapdragon variant could involve a specilaized thermal heat pipes design forincreased performance, but that’s just speculation for now. Suggested that it will launch in the USA and China, with the Exynos S7 variants making its way to Korea, Japan, and European regions when the device is finally available for release.
Exclusive here is what the leaked Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus sizes and renders show up. It does contain detailed measurements of the next flagship duo. One of which is going to measure 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, which is almost identical to the Galaxy S6 footprint. Other one, is said to dwarf its sibling at a whopping 163.32 x 82.01 x 7.82mm, close to what the Galaxy Mega 2 measures.
It seems that the upcoming Plus variant of the S7 will be a supersized 6.0-inch device. The renders hint that the S7 will bear a lot of resemblance to the S6. The SIM slot has also been moved to the side.
