AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S7 version spotted in leaked benchmark result
The AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 gets spotted on Geekbench
A new Samsung smartphone codenamed SM-G930A, has surfaced in the Geekbench database with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset on board. Based on the codenames of previous Samsung flagships, this new handset is believed to be the AT&T version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7.
According to a wide range of unofficial sources, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 will land in two chipset variants. Most likely, the international version will be powered by the Samsung Exynos 8890, while the North American version will make use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. A few days ago, an Exynos-based Galaxy S7 prototype was spotted making the rounds on Geekbench, and now AT&T's Snapdragon variant has showed up in the database as well.
The alleged leaked Geekbench result reveals a score of 2282 points in single core tasks and one of 4979 in multi-core ones for the Snapdragon 820-equipped variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7. When we compare these preliminary results with the 1873 single core points and the 5946 muti-core points obtained by the Exynos 8890 version, we can notice a significant bump in single core performance.
Looking at the multi-core tests, it's important to note that the Snapdragon 820 reached 4979 points with just four CPU cores while the 8890 was able to flex all eight of its CPU cores to get to 5946 points.
At this point, it should be mentioned that there are no conclusions to be drawn from these alleged leaked benchmark results. Even if these results have not been tampered with in any way, we cannot compare the Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890 based on the performance of prototype devices.
The benchmark result also lists Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as the OS and a total of 4GB of RAM. Unfortunately, this doesn't tell us much, as both are considered a lock for the Galaxy S7.
