Benchmark testing sites like AnTuTu and Geekbench are the most sought-after sources to look out for key configurations of any upcoming devices. This time around, Samsung Galaxy S7’s full details have popped up. In the past, we have come across the specifications of the Snapdragon 820 version of the S7. Now, we have the details specific to the Exynos variant.
According to AnTuTu's Weibo account, the Exynos 8890 version of the Galaxy S7, tied to the model number SM-G930F, will apparently carry a 5.1-inch display, bundled with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels screen resolution. This variant will come backed by a solid 4 GB of RAM.
When it comes to camera specification, a cool 12-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper will be mounted on the handset. The phone will come equipped with 64 GB of native storage space. On the software front, this variant will apparently run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, straight out of the box.
So far, AnTuTu has not uploaded the benchmark score of this Exynos version. Folks at the site say this version is currently in testing phase.
Meanwhile, the same Exynos 8890 powered Galaxy S7 has silently made a visit to the Geekbench site as well. The model number is apparently SM-G930W8. Spec-wise, this site’s listing matches the AnTuTu configurations.
The Exynos 8890 variant tallied 1873 points in the single-core test, while the score pertaining to multi-core test is 5946 on Geekbench. In comparison, the single-core and multi-core scores of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge powered by Exynos 7420 SoC, which is the predecessor of Exynos 8890, are 1495 and 5375, respectively, Phone Arena reported.
As for release date, the Galaxy S7 is expected to be launched on Feb. 21 at the Unpacked 2016 event, prior to the MWC 2016.
As always, readers are advised to take the reported Galaxy S7 specifications with the proverbial pinch of salt as Samsung has not confirmed any information so far.
