Snapdragon 820-equipped Samsung Galaxy S7 flexes its muscle in leaked AnTuTu benchmark result


A few weeks ago, mobile benchmark developers from AnTuTu promised that they will soon post the score obtained by a Samsung Galaxy S7 prototype. Today, the day has finally come and, as expected, it looks like the heavily anticipated Galaxy S7 is going to be a true powerhouse.

Many already know this by now, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to come in two versions. The North American version will probably get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 version while the rest of the world is expected to get the Exynos 8890 chipset. Last week, AT&T's Snapdragon 820 version was spotted making the rounds on Geekbench, showcasing great CPU performance.

This time around, a Snapdragon 820-equipped Samsung Galaxy S7 prototype was passed through AnTuTu, a benchmark that tests both the CPU and the GPU performance. The handset got a score of 125,288 points, which is well above the scores obtained by current-gen Android flagships. For reference, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ averages out at about 82,000 points in the latest version of AnTuTu.

The Apple A9-powered iPhone 6S Plus, which is currently the best-performing smartphone in AnTuTu, gets an average score of about 132,000 points. However, we do have to bear in mind that the iPhone 6S Plus runs a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels while the Samsung Galaxy S7 will most likely use a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels. Since 3D performance is a big component of the overall score, it's impressive that the Snapdragon 820 is nearly able to match the score of the iPhone 6S Plus in AnTuTu given that the GPU has to push about 77% more pixels.

As is always the case with benchmarks on prototype devices, it remains to be seen if the commercial version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be able to maintain this performance levels. As such, make sure not to read too much into these results. For much more details on what to expect from the upcoming Samsung flagship, make sure to read our Galaxy S7 rumor roundup.

Won't matter much. Either processor's performance on AnTuTu isn't indicative of real world blues. What I would like to see is the final single-core benchmark score on Geekbench for both these bad boys.

Benchmarks don't matter -said every Android fanboy ever after Apple caught up

Marketshare and screen resolution don't matter -said every Apple fanboy ever after Android caught up (and blew past)

Well, it's proven geekbench and Antutu are heavily Apple skewed. Like the article says: e.g. resolution doesn't matter in the score even though it's obvious the 820 is far superior graphics wise to Apple's crap.

I would like to have sd820 version bcoz qualcomm has very wide developers support + wide network support. On exynos, once samsung stop updates then you are stuck with older version of android. Qualcomm has many custom ROMs

It won't matter if you're on Verizon, there will be no root.

I would like the Exynos as it will be much better technically.

The resolution dependence really spoils the comparison between SoCs. You can't compare 2 SoCs running on different resolutions.

If Qualcomm can sort out the heat issues on their chipsets I have a feeling the SD820 will be better overall compared to Sammy's offering.

It is Samsung which is producing the SD820 for Qualcomm... so, no more heating issues.

Don't think because Exynos has more cores and a bit better GPU.

resolution won't differ the score that significant. just look at iPhone 6S and 6S Plus scores. even on the global list 6S and Plus stated on the same score. http://www.antutu.com/en/view.shtml?id=8184

750p to 1080p is a smaller gap than 1080p to 2k..

No wonder you're an Apple user with such a stupid analysis...

Just imagine a SD 820 and Exynos 8890 on a FHD phone. That would be amazing since most games actually runs 1080p or has it been fixed for QHD. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I dont think that you are wrong. So, atleast I will not try to correct

Here is the Antutu test for the S7 with Exynos 8890 SOC:https://i.ytimg.com/vi/AXwdXL9qWqc/hqdefault.jpg Seems Antutu will soon fix this issue to handle the powerhouse's extreme performance.

Exynos CPU always score better than Qcom, but Adreno performs better Exynos GPU (Mali).

wrong.

Nope he is right not only do its have a bit better performance its also usually support more graphic api.

wrong again (and OFC you came in with all your HTC SD810 love) trying to prove everybody wrong. the mali GPU always have better avg FPS than adreno and also more stable, tested and fact.. look it up

Some ppl need to stop been ass here. Sure on the latest gen the SD810 was slower but just before thats the 805 killed the exynos in GPU quite easily. Both note 4 one with SD one with exynos here the link :http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/GFX-Bench-3.0.jpg

5433 came way after the 805. Its was the 5430 thats was used in most international note 4 the 5433 came out mostly in korea and way after both the snapdragon 805 and exynos 5430 came out. Compare soc from same time. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-Galaxy-Note-4-benchmarks-Snapdragon-805-vs-Exynos-7-Octa_id63111

you are totally wrong. 5433 and sd805 were used at the same time in note 4. It was qcomm's fault they were unable to offer any soc at the time of 5433

Marorun, Exynos 5433 is indeed a bit faster than SD805. http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=643551&st=1220#entry41278715 That's my own tests.
