Samsung Galaxy S7 with Snapdragon 820 SoC allegedly tops 5423 on Geekbench's multi-core test
A posting found on Weibo from a Chinese tipster, seconds a rumor that we've heard before. The original speculation noted that the version of the Snapdragon 820 chip headed into the Galaxy S7 will be optimized for Samsung with better thermal management and lower power consumption. Because this enhanced Snapdragon 820 chip will run at a higher frequency than the regular version, a heat pipe will be added to help with the thermal control.
The Weibo post adds that a new Geekbench test done on the Samsung Galaxy S7 powered with this enhanced Snapdragon 820 chip in tow, scored an impressive 2456 in the single-core test. The multi-core test also produced a tremendous score of 5423. If this test is legit, it would appear that U.S. and Chinese buyers of the phone shouldn't have any performance issues to worry about. Still, it would be prudent to take this story with the proverbial grain of salt.
We could see the Samsung Galaxy S7 unveiled on February 21st, the day before MWC opens in Barcelona, during a scheduled Samsung Unpacked event.
Thanks for the tip!
