Galaxy Note 7R (FE) gets benchmarked once again, hints at more than acceptable performance
We're talking about none other than the upcoming refurbished version of the Galaxy Note 7, which might have made a promising appearance on Geekbench, one of the larger benchmark databases. Depending on who you ask, the phone will be either called the Note 7R or the Note 7 FE (Fan Edition), but anyways, the important part here is that the upcoming safe handset is forming up to be a powerhouse that seems to have achieved some pretty high single- and multi-core scores.
From what we're seeing, the octa-core Exynos 8890 chipset inside the refurbished Note 7 is performing pretty similarly to the Exynos 8895 and the Snapdragon 835 chipsets that power the Galaxy S8 and S8+. In our tests, the Galaxy S8 clocked in at 2006 points in the single-core test and 6708 points in the multi-core exercise.
The Note 7R is rumored to come sometime this July, boasting the same Note 7 design and hardware specs, save for a smaller, yet safer (or so they say) 3,200mAh battery at the rear. This means a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution, 64GB of native storage, IP68 certification, as well as a rear 12MP f/1.7 camera with OIS and phase-detection autofocus. One of the few things that will separate the refurbished from the original Note 7 is purportedly going to be a big letter R, printed on the lower-right side of its back.
As we know more, so will you.
