There are many a rumours regarding the upcoming Samsung S7, and this is something that's bound to be. Previously a few credible leaks from the rumour mill hinted that the Korean electronics giant is calling the S7 as "Juangfrau" internally.
The codenamed device is also said to be using both the Qualcomm SD820 and a latest Exynos SoC. Rather the Korean electronics are testing the Snapdragon 820 SoC rather closely as they don't want to use a chip which comes with an inheritance of heating issues. Hence Samsung is trying to be extra sure this time.
A recent GeekBench listing indeed revealed the fact that Samsung is indeed testing out their latest Exynos SoC in the S7. The listing showed an alleged device dubbed the Lucky LTE using an Exynos 8890 SOC and a 4GB of RAM.
The GeekBench scores recorded by the device were nearly similar to the one recorded by Galaxy S6 and Note5, both using the Exynos 7420 SoC.
But the most recent revelation was via Antutu Benchmark. The listing by Antutu further affirms the previous leaks, as the same Lucky LTE device was seen on the benchmark with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 under the hood. While the device scores 65,775 in the benchmark which nearly similar to the existing SD810, the GPU scores are vastly different.
Here the SD820 scores 23,897 which is markedly higher than its counterpart. This is in line with the recent announcement by Qualcomm stating that the Adreno 530 will be 40% more powerful than the 430 seen on the SD810.
The Antutu listing also reveals that the alleged device features a 5.7 inch QHD display, 16MP rear camera, 5MP front facing and 64GB of internal storage. The S7 as of now features a 4GB of RAM and runs on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 but it is expected that the device will ship with Android M globally when launched.
