Samsung Galaxy S7 edge takes a run through Geekbench
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!
