Exynos 8890-Powered Galaxy S7 Pops Up On AnTuTu

The Galaxy S7 handset(s) is expected to arrive at the end of next month. Samsung is expected to introduce their new flagship(s) during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, as they do every year. A number of leaks / rumors have leaked regarding the upcoming Galaxy S7 devices, and it seems like Samsung will introduce more than one handset at the same time, like they did last year. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will quite probably launch at the same time, and the Galaxy S7 Edge+ may join them as well.

That being said, the Galaxy S7 has just surfaced on AnTuTu, and it follows the lead of the Galaxy S7 Edge which popped up on the site earlier this month. Now, according to the information from AnTuTu, the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930F) will feature a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. This particular version of the handset is powered by the Exynos 8890, not the Snapdragon 820, although the company will probably release both variants of the device. The phone will ship with a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, as some leaks have been saying. The 5-megapixel front-facing shooter is placed on the front of this phone, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on the device according to this info. Samsung’s TouchWiz will come pre-installed on top of Android, if Samsung doesn’t opt to change its name or something of the sort.

Considering the fact that this information comes from AnTuTu’s Weibo page, we don’t have any benchmark scores to share at this point, only the specs. These specifications actually go hand-in-hand with the most leaks we’ve seen in the last couple of weeks. The handset will almost certainly going to resemble Samsung’s 2015 flagship line, and some rumors are saying that it will resemble the Galaxy Note 5 the most, but it will be smaller, of course. This means that Samsung will, once again, use the metal + glass design, and a physical home button will be located below the display. That is pretty much it, if any additional leaks surface, we’ll let you know, stay tuned.
