Report: U.S. and China bound Samsung Galaxy S7 models to carry Snapdragon 820 chipset
posted by Alan F. / Oct 01, 2015, 10:29 PM
The Snapdragon 820 features Qualcomm's proprietary Kryo cores, and the quad-core CPU is partnered with the Adreno 530 CPU. Qualcomm has reportedly done a great job at enhancing its newest high-end chip to cut back on power requirements and offer improved thermal management. The Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released in February, according to the latest rumors.
Samsung has been testing different versions of the phone, sometimes using the Snapdragon 820 inside, and other times loading the device with the Exynos 8890. The latter could be the next Exynos chip that has been dubbed the M1, or Mongoose. There are still rumors that we will see a 5.2-inch model and a 5.8-inch variant of the Galaxy S7 next year, along with a model sporting 3GB of RAM and one with 4GB of the stuff. When it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S7, we are still in flux.

BTW is that Ultrasonic fingerprint technology on Snapdragon 820 real? If I'm not mistaken, they said that technology doesn't require any physical buttons for fingerprint reading unlike any other tech on the market.. That would be game changer in industry indeed. ;O

They should really go down a notch in display size to 5.0".

Get rid of half baked touch whiz and use purer Android software

We all know they are going to have amazing CPUs. What I'm concerned about is GPU. They should be at least as powerful as the ones on the iPhone 6S. And that's pretty hard to do. As the GPU on 6s is about 50-60% more powerful than the Mali t760 mp8 and 60-70% more than adreno 430. We can already see that given the numbers given by QualComm, the 530 will be weaker than the GPU in A9, which is a shame. Let's home at least the new Mali beats A9 GPU like the t760 thtashed the A8 Gpu.

Don't think that Adreno 530 will be sliwer than PowerVR GT7600. If it will really be 40% faster than Adreno 430 then 530 will reach A9. As for Exynos I predict an MP12 config of Mali GPU (that's equal to 6-core GP7600) put with higher ALU per core ratio (that's a T880) and maybe higher clocks.

530 is 40% more powerful than 430. GT7600 is 70% more powerful than 430. Do the math. Samsung won't use the MP12 variant of T880. And it's unnecessary. Even the MP4 T880 is pretty close in power as T760 MP8. A more efficient process + T880 MP8 is all they need to match the T7600.
