According to previous reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will sport the Samsung-made Exynos 8890 SoC (code named Mongoose), which is said to make its official debut in February. If a leaked benchmark result is to be believed, the processor will be a force to be reckoned with.
The screenshot of the benchmark result shown above was leaked by a leakster on Chinese-speaking micro-blogging site Weibo, which is China’s equivalent of Twitter. We’ve come across a few benchmark results that show the performance of the Exynos 8890 SoC, which only show performance levels at par with the Exynos 7420 CPU (processor under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge). This latest benchmark score, however, shows that the 8890 will offer jaw-dropping performance like we’ve never seen before.
The benchmark result reveals that the Exynoss 8890 is clocked at 2.3 GHz and scored 7,000 points on the multi-core test on Geekbench, which is the highest score we’ve ever seen. Additionally, the CPU scored 2,294 points on the single-core test.
There were also lower scores made by the Exynos 8890, when running Power Saving and Ultra Power Saving modes. This is an indication that the scores were made by a possible prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S7 prototype.
According to the source of the leak, Samsung is still working on optimising the Exynos 8890 for the Galaxy S7, which means we may see even higher scores in the future.
We’ve learned from past reports that there will be two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7. One is said to sport the Exynos 8890 CPU under the hood, while the other is said to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC on board. We’ve also learned that Samsung will continue to offer its upcoming flagship in a flat and curved version, which is obviously the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge respectively. In the photography department, Samsung is said to be testing several prototypes, including a dual camera setup and some with a 20-megapixel ISOCELL camera sensor. Lastly, past reports have claimed that the S7 will come with a frame constructed out of magnesium allow, which will allow the device to be stronger and lighter.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this information with a pinch of salt.
