Partial list of Samsung Galaxy S7 specs pop up on Geekbench

Samsung Galaxy S7 goes through the Geekbench benchmark test

Earlier today, we passed along specs that appeared for the Samsung Galaxy S7 after the upcoming flagship handset supposedly was put through the AnTuTu benchmark test. That device carried a model number of SM-G930F, with the "F" indicating that the model benchmarked was an international unlocked variant of the phone.

Another version of the Samsung Galaxy S7, SM-G930W8, has been put through the Geekbench benchmark test. This model also is powered by the Exynos 8890 SoC as opposed to the Snapdragon 820 chipset. The latter will be found powering the Galaxy S7 in the U.S. and Chinese markets. According to Geekbench, 4GB of RAM is inside which happens to match the specs listed by AnTuTu. Both benchmark sites call for the phone to launch with Android 6.0.1. pre-installed.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 powered by the Exynos 8890 had a single-core tally of 1873 and a multi-core score of 5946 on Geekbench. To put that in perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge had a single-core result of 1495 and a multi-core score of 5375 when it went through Geekbench last year. That phone is equipped with the Exynos 7420 SoC.

The rest of the Galaxy S7's specs according to AnTuTu, include a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. A 12MP camera graces the back and a selfie snappin' 5MP camera adorns the front of the device.

We expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S7 unveiled on February 21st during Samsung's Unpacked 2016 event. That happens to be the day before MWC kicks off in Barcelona this year.

Thanks for the tip!

lol that's how silly you look when you talk about an unannounced device in testing

Also geekbench just reads the build.prop

So just edit the build.prop
If I wanted, I could make geekbench think my Nexus 5 has Android P, 64GB ram, Apple A11X, ...

It can easy be in power saving mode

possibly...earlier benchmarks of the Exynos 8890 in power saving mode still had similar performance to the Exynos 7420

12MP camera.. such a disappointment...

@cheetah2k
Not really, it's 12MP + large sensor + bright lens. It means excellent low light performance.

Every year they cut something. S8 will upgrade to 16mpx I guess

More MP does not a good camera make.

It was in a power saving mode.

You can see that the score increased a lot. There's a great chance it'll increase further.

that is a large increase with the increase in clock rates...I don't get the fuss over pre release or in this case pre-announcement benchmarks..the final device is almost always different

The most important part is the Processor ID:

http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/compare/3403838?baseline=4968211

On earlier 'Lucky' model: ARM implementer 83 variant 0 part 1 revision 0
New model: ARM implementer 83 architecture 8 variant 1 part 1 revision 1

So we can see that the variant, part and revision are all different. That means Samsung is testing and new releases.

Also there are some other stuff. For example, the integer score is equal or less than 7420. Considering that M1 is improved A72, and LPP vs LPE should also give 20-30% advantage already, i call this one a pretty early prototype or a very unoptimized early kernel.

Highly likely that the final scores would be like 2200/7500 as expected.

I doubt that's the finalized score. Let's wait for an optimized and commercial benchmark assessment

It seems like a good enough score to me. They should focus on memory management.

PSH only running 1.6Ghz...this is just a trial run...the exynos 8890 will blow the 950 OUT OF THE WATERS!

Geekbench still hasn't been updated to report asymmetric SoC properly

It still just reports the clockrate of CPU0, which for many is an A53 core

Geekbench shows the clock from the slower cores.

Can't wait for this phone! And the edge variant please!

I highly doubt this is the phone if anything a prototype. Even so, it's very impressive that it's getting significantly higher score with a 2k screen and a full android os running on the background

Display resolution has nothing to do with Geekbench score. It's CPU benchmarks only. OS doesn't matter either.

I hope the s7 plus or edge plus gets put on boost! I'm stuck on boost and have the galaxy s6 and I want a bigger better phone!!

8889 is according to Samsung 30% faster then 7420, nothing in this chart is 30% faster. this prob is just a test run or on a unfinnished software, it will be better in time :)

Who is to say it is even the 8890
