Geekbench test shows delicious (Android) Nougat filling for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is rumored to feature some mighty tasty specs. We could see a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Depending on where you live, you might find the Snapdragon 823 chipset or the Exynos 8893 SoC under the hood. 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM should be inside with 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage. The cameras found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 will moonlight as the snappers on the Galaxy Note 7.

That means you should expect a 12MP rear-facing camera sporting OIS and an f/1.7 aperture. A 5MP front-facing camera will handle selfies and video chats. The whole shebang will be powered by a 4000mAh battery. Other features include an iris scanner, fingerprint scanner and an IP68 certification for protection from dust and water.

And if the latest Geekbench benchmark test (which was taken today) is right, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will come with the latest Android 7.0 build, also known as Android Nougat, out of the box. But there are some things we need to point out. The SM-N930F tallied poor scores of  909 (single-core) and 3768 (multi-core). For some reason, the Exynos 7420 chipset was under the hood during the test which explains the lower than anticipated scoring. The device tested had only 3GB of RAM. 

On the other hand, back in the middle of June the same model went through the Geekbench benchmark test, but this time it had the Exynos 8890 inside and 4GB of RAM. Android 6.0.1 was installed on the device. That model scored 2394 and 7347 for single-core and multi-core, respectively.

While Samsung could have been testing out any number of things, the fact that the latest Geekbench test did include Android 7.0 gives us strong hope that the phablet will be unveiled with a tasty Nougat center.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be introduced on August 2nd.
