As most of you know, Samsung had introduced the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices back in February. These two smartphones have been selling really well for the company, which resulted in Samsung Mobile's increased profits. Samsung's financial projections are looking really good at the moment, and they're hoping that the release of the Galaxy Note 7 will improve their profits even more. The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to land next month, and we've already seen tons of leaked content when it comes to this phone, and the device was also benchmarked by both AnTuTu and Geekbench.

That being said, the Galaxy Note 7 surfaced on Geekbench twice thus far, and it paid a visit to AnTuTu only once. Well, a new Geekbench listing surfaced quite recently, which means this is the third Galaxy Note 7 variant to hit Geekbench. The SM-N930F and SM-N920V have surfaced on Geekbench recently, and the SM-N930R6 is the latest variant of the Galaxy Note 7 to surface on Geekbench. This variant of the device is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU, and it also comes with 4GB of RAM on the inside. Its SoC is clocked at 1.6GHz, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is also mentioned here, despite the fact the SM-N930F variant which was benchmarked recently ran Android 7.0 Nougat. Now, chances are that the Galaxy Note 7 will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top of it, though we're still not sure, it all depends on when Google intends to release the final build of Android 7.0 Nougat.

Anyhow, this variant of the Galaxy Note 7, much like every other variant we've seen benchmarked thus far, could be the company's 'Lite' version of their flagship phablet. Now, do keep in mind that the 'Lite' variant is only a rumor, and it is supposed to refer to the 4GB RAM model of the Galaxy Note 7, as we do expect the 6GB RAM variant to launch as well. The 'Lite' model might not even be a thing, Samsung might opt to call both variants the 'Galaxy Note 7' and be done with it, and that's even the most probable outcome. Either way, stay tuned, we'll report back if any more Galaxy Note 7-related rumors / leaks surface.
