Samsung Galaxy S7 edge takes a run through Geekbench
posted by Alan F. / Jan 28, 2016, 12:47 PM
The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, as we told you yesterday, will be one of two new handsets unveiled by the manufacturer next month. Samsung's Unpacked 2016 event will take place on February 21st, the day before the MWC kicks off in Barcelona. According to Evan Blass, the tipster formerly known by his @evleaks Twitter handle, the Galaxy S7 edge will be introduced along with the Samsung Galaxy S7 during the event.
The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has been recently put through the Geekbench benchmark test. We know it was not the U.S. version of the phone being tested, because of the Exynos 8890 chipset that was employed on the device. In the U.S. and China, the Galaxy S7 edge will have the Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood. The Exynos 8890 will be powering the handset in the rest of the world.
The Geekbench test also revealed that the Galaxy S7 edge will come with 4GB of RAM and is model number SM-G935. It will come with Android 6.0.1 pre-installed.
The Geekbench test produced a single-core score of 1363, and a multi-core score of 4951. Those figures pale when compared to the results tallied by a Snapdragon 820 SoC powered Samsung Galaxy S7 that went through the Geekbench test. That handset had a single-core score of 2456 and a multi-core score of 5423. We wouldn't put too much faith in the numbers as this could be a prototype, or the CPU could have been tested at a slow clock speed.
Thanks for the tip!

Weak, too weak. Is this really a flagship phone? Score seems too weak to be a flagship phone.

You must be dumb if you think this will happen. Even 1 year old Exynos 7420 scored 1500+ Single core and 5000+ multi core on Geekbench 3, how can its successor be inferior?? Think about it.

Never said it's a battery benchmark. Here's a dumber and simpler way to put it; it's testing the performance of the phone while the phone is in it's power saving mode. In power saving mode, the phone will get the longest battery life ever. If it can still perform great while in that mode, that'll be killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Still too hard for your head to comprehend?

The score is nearly 5000. What more do you want?

The exynos 8890 is supposed to clocked at 2.3 ghz, so this score is really amazing. That would also supports the 9000 point leaks that the S7 achieves in some other leaks were it is clocked at 2.3ghz

Fake as f*ck. Lower than s6? Don't post these fake scores PA. It only makes you look unprofessional.

Phonearena:"The octa-core processor Exynos 8890 with four stock ARM Cortex-A53 cores and four custom M1 cores appears at the top of the chart with a score of 7400 points. For comparison, the Exynos 7420 that powers the Samsung Galaxy S6 series usually reaches a little over 5000 points in the same tests." phonearena

Somewhat unrelated question.... How come the US always gets a different version?

They have different LTE bands which only the snapdragon variant supports.

Qualcomm radios usually perform better in the US vs the exynos. The S5 had much better reception vs the S6. The S5 actually has some of the strongest signal quality. What good is ultra fast performance if you don't get a signal. My iPhone 6 gets atleast a bar better reception vs the S6 and note 5. My sister and I are both on tmobile her and her husband have S6 edge and note 5.
