Rumors are rife about the likely features and specs of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 7, which is widely-expected to be unveiled next month. While there is no official information available about the handset, a version of the device — allegedly bound for U.S. carrier Verizon — has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database.
The device, which appears to be a test unit, carries the model number SM-N930V and features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM. These specs don’t match the previously rumored details, which suggested that the Galaxy Note 7 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and Samsung’s Exynos 8893 processor in certain variants of the device, along with 6GB of RAM.
Therefore, according to SamMobile, the device on Geekbench could just be under testing on Verizon’s network without having the final specifications.
Apparently, the same variant of the Galaxy Note 7 was recently put through the AnTuTu benchmark site, revealing that the device was powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.
Another version of the Galaxy Note 7 appeared on Geekbench last week as well, indicating that the handset will come with the latest Android 7 build, also referred to as Android Nougat, out of the box. Unlike the alleged Verizon-bound version, this particular Galaxy S7 variant was carrying the model number SM-N930F and was sporting the Exynos 7420 chipset, instead of the rumored Exynos 8893 processor.
If ongoing rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy Note 7 will sport a 5.7-inch display, an iris scanner and a USB Type-C port. The device could also feature an upgraded S-Pen with improved BlueTooth LE hardware.
Recent reports also suggested that Samsung is planning to have 5 million Galaxy Note 7 units ready for when the phone launches on Aug. 2 in New York.
