Recently, the Huawei Mate 8 with the Chinese phone maker’s Kirin 950 SoC scored more than 94,000 points on AnTuTu, shattering records on the benchmark site. Now, that already impressive record was broken by none other than the new Exynos 8890 SoC made by Samsung, scoring 103,692 points. The Exynos 8890 SoC is expected to be found under the hood of the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Record-breaking Exynos 8890
The image seen above is a screenshot of the Exynos 8890 SoC scoring over 100,000 points on AnTuTu. It has been circulating on Chinese media, which was then spotted by Mobipicker. The alleged test result also shows that the test was conducted using a device with model number SM-G9300, which is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Not only did the Exynos 8890 SoC break records on AnTuTu, it also broke records on the Geekbench benchmark site back in September. The processor scored a record-breaking 6,908 points on the multi core test, while scoring 2,294 in the single core test.
The Exynos 8890 SoC is made using Samsung’s 14 nm FinFET process, and will reportedly find its way to half of Samsung Galaxy S7 units. This version of the S7 is said to be the international version headed to the UK. The other half are said to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, which will be the version headed to the US and China.
According to more recent reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be available in a 5.2-inch regular version and a 5.7-inch curved version. Past reports claimed that the device would make its official debut earlier than expected, but recent reports are now saying that the S7 will be unveiled on the 21st of February, a day before MWC 2016, which kicks off in Barcelona, Spain. This is the same time Samsung announced this year’s Galaxy S6. The difference is, Samsung is rumoured to release the device earlier than expected, possibly soon after its unveiling.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
