Mystery Samsung device scores a breathtaking 95,972 on AnTuTu (UPDATE)
A mystery Samsung device has just set a new record on the AnTuTu benchmarking site with a score of 95,972. The model number of the unknown device is SM-8508S. Since the Samsung Galaxy Note 5reportedly scored 69,702 on AnTuTu, we can pretty much eliminate that model. We'd expect a similar or lower score for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. That leaves one model in mind, and we think you know which one we are thinking about.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 could be the handset that produced that record shattering AnTuTu score. Yesterday, we told you that the manufacturer's new "Agile" system could allow it to have the next flagship model developed by December. Not that we think Samsung would feel compelled to unveil the new model that early. After all, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ would still be fairly new and there shouldn't be a need to cannibalize sales of those models during the holiday shopping season.

Whatever is under the hood of the SM-8508S is obviously cranking more horsepower than the Exynos 7420. There has been speculation that Sammy would return to Qualcomm and employ a Snapdragon SoC for the Galaxy S7. Whether this is the Samsung Galaxy S7 or not, it is clearly going to be a powerful device with some serious power under the hood.

Thanks for the tip!

UPDATE: It appears that the AnTuTu score of 95,972 was a fake. While the model number of SM-8508S didn't provide us with a conclusive match, it came close to the Samsung Galaxy Alpha (Southeast Asian model). The latter actually has averaged 38,997 on AnTuTu, pretty far from the faked score.

Someday there will be a device that hits 100,000 on the site. But that day is just not today.

Thanks for the tip!
