As the crazy launch season known at MWC approaches, we’re getting more and more info about all the 2016 flagship. We’ve already heard a lot of rumors regarding the slide out battery compartment and all-metal body. Today we’re seeing benchmarks show up for the AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7. From the benchmark we see that the S7 is indeed running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. This can be inferred from the quad-core Qualcomm chipset as well as the code number MSM8996 on the motherboard.
It will be interesting to see if Samsung sticks with Qualcomm processors around the globe in the S7. In the past they have used Exynos processors in international variants and Qualcomm here in the US, excepting 2015 due to the disaster that was the Snapdragon 810. The Geekbench scores are pretty damn high, with a near 5000 multi-core score. As for the other specs, the S7 will come with 4GB of RAM on board and running Android 6.0.1 on the software side. I’m ready to see some new phones NOW, but we’ll have to wait a few more weeks. Anyone else getting excited?
