It’s pretty crazy to think that we are already talking Galaxy S7 rumors. We told you last month that Samsung is looking to launch the device in late January to keep the hype cycle going in their competition with Apple. Today a report from SamMobile suggests that Samsung will allegedly launch 3 different variants of the S7, each featuring a different processor inside.
The three different variants will be region specific. For India, Samsung will use the Exynos 7422 processor, whereas the European and South Korean model will feature Samsung’s Exynos 8890. Here in North America the Galaxy S7 will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 with updated X12 LTE chip announced earlier this year. It is pretty interesting that Samsung would use both Exynos and Qualcomm chips in the S7, but perhaps it makes sense from a cost or logistics standpoint depending on the region. As long as the Snapdragon 820 is more refined than the 810 at launch, I have no problems with Samsung going back to the Qualcomm chips. On the other hand, no one can deny how effective the Exynos 7420 was this year, so we’ll see where this heads in the next few months.
Anyone have a strong preference one way or the other?
