Exynos 8893 powered Samsung Galaxy Note 7 scores high on Geekbench
An Exynos 8893 powered Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was put through the Geekbench benchmark test, and in the process the phablet racked up impressive scores. The SM-N935F, believed to be a variant of the Galaxy Note 7, was listed with 4GB of RAM on board. We expect Samsung to stuff 6GB of RAM into the final production version of the phone.

The single-core score was 2300 while the multi-core was an impressive 8110. Android 6.0.1 was pre-installed on the unit that was tested. Just the other day, another version of the Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N930F) was put through Geekbench with an older Exynos 7420 SoC under the hood. Even with Android 7.0 installed, the less powerful chipset resulted in a single-core score of 909 and a multi-core score of 3768.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be driven by the Exynos 8893 chipset everywhere but the U.S. and China. In those two markets, we should see the Snapdragon 823 SoC inside. The phablet will be unveiled on August 2nd with a launch not too long afterward.

"Day multi-core score tho!" :D. That's pretty damn impressive. Too bad I live in the US, not to mention super large phones.

You can still buy the International version with the Exynos from carriers or resellers in Canada. That's what I plan to do and have done.

Will it be compatible with carrier LTE bands?

You are crazzy or what? Sure it will be compatible.

GSM network should be alright, but not so much for CDMA networks, sprint, Verizon etc

He's not crazy* , the exynos varient is dedicated to European lte bands

My note 5 is exynos variant. I bought it at Best Buy in the US. But I am not sure if it was available all a long in the US or if some got through the cracks and made it to the US. Is so maybe some of the note 7's will show up in the US.

There was no SD variant of Note 5. Exynos 7420 all along.

That started again only this year.

OK, I was not sure

exactly that! so it's no crazyness if he is worried if the Exynos varient is compatible with US carriers LTE!

if its the canadian version then yes otherwise no, and assuming you're using at$t t mobile or their MVNOs

yes they are compatible. I bought the S7 edge international version just for the exynos processor and the 4G LTE works fine.

Which carrier and does it work on all the LTE bands?

71. rick_mobile

Posts: 358; Member since: Dec 13, 2010

I have tmobile but the lte bands on the international exynos covers all the lte bands that tmobile or att require. So it should work with no problems on both providers. Not sure about verizon or sprint

That's probably what I'll end up doing when my love affair with the op3 fades.

Yeah, but good luck with warranty issues.

There are third party insurance companies that even cover accidental damage. They're fairly affordable also.

Funny how even though kiko007 mocks you and your posts basically daily, you still try and give kind helpful advice. Congrats for being able to ignore things like that.

Congrats on bringing up something that has absolutely nothing to do with you or the topic. If you've actually seen some of the insults he's thrown my way, then I think you'd be singing a different toon.

Nothing to do with me? Excuse me, but am I not a member of this site? I have every right to say something about the fact that you're nothing but rude to him.

And I have every right to tell you to mind your own business and stay on topic. My "rudeness" towards him doesn't affect you in any way whatsoever.

Hi bro i was just wondering if you can point me where I can buy one from Canada and how to ship it here in the USA so i can cancel my T-mobile preorder.. thank you!

That multicore performance is impressive. But im sure we'd be happier to see that excellence in the single core instead. Now dont take me wrong obviously multicore does matters after all but i wish android was much more optimized to take full advantage of the multicore performance

It is, with processes like SurfaceFlinger ( http://www.dereferer.org/?http%3A%2F%2Fbit%2Ely%2F1NZXNxT ), which take advantage of multiple cores in pre-determining where objects are going to be drawn on-screen prior to sending it to the GPU to draw it (regardless if app is programmed for single core or multicore), the performance difference in gaming is insignificant compared to CPUs with higher performance per core.

Why single core? Who cares for a multi-threaded OS? Who care when apps were design for multi-core usage. That's like saying, well I want my care to be as fast on one cylinder as it is with all 4 or 8. Common man. Really? if singles cores could perform that well, then there wouldn't be a benefit to making them multi-core in the first place.

Yeah, i get it

You have it backward. Most Android apps take advantage of multiple cores so single core performance is less of an issue.

The reason multicore processing is fruitful is bcoz the cores make the chipset power efficient (faster too) but imagine the thread not needing to be divided among the cores if it could be done by a single 1 instead, that way the background processes and switching on apps could be made better and faster too. Just saying.
