European Galaxy S7 Variant Surfaces On Geekbench

February 1, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Samsung Galaxy S7 devices have been surfacing all over the place in the last couple of weeks. Both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have been both rumored and leaked, while Samsung decided to officially announce their Unpacked event earlier today. The Korea-based tech giant has sent out invites for their February 21st Unpacked event where the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be unveiled to the general public.

That being said, these two devices have surfaced in a number of benchmarks thus far, and the latest one appeared on Geekbench. The Galaxy S7 (SM-G830W8), a variant headed to the US, is the latest one which surfaced, and it actually matches the Galaxy S7 Edge variant which has surfaced a couple of days ago. Now, the Galaxy S7 has already visited Geekbench recently, but that was an another version of this handset, a version which is headed to Europe (SM-G930F). Anyhow, the new Galaxy S7 variant managed to score 1,873 points in a single-core, and 5,946 points in a multi-core test. That being said, this variant managed to score much higher than the European model we’ve mentioned earlier (1,358 & 4,911), but there are quite a few variables to consider here, the two devices will quite probably be identical by the time they’re launched. Anyhow, this variant of the device actually matches the Galaxy S7 Edge variant which surfaced a couple of days ago, and both variants are fueled by the Exynos 8890 SoC by Samsung.

According to a number o benchmark listings, and some rumors, the Galaxy S7 devices will ship with a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED panel. These phones will also pack in 4GB of RAM, and will be available in a number of different internal storage options. Samsung’s Exynos 8890 and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processors will fuel these devices, and their availability will depend on where you live. The 12.2-megapixel BRITECELL camera is said to be located on the back of the Galaxy S7, and a 5-megapixel shooter will probably going to be available up front. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here, and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI will be installed on top of it. That is pretty much it, the two devices will arrive later this month during Samsung’s Unpacked event, so stay tuned.
