Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 appears on Geekbench


A version of the Verizon branded Samsung Galaxy Note 7, SM-N930V, has appeared today on the Geekbench benchmarking site. The only thing of note (no pun intended) to come out of the test is that once again the phablet carried just 4GB of RAM. Despite rumors that the Galaxy Note 7 will come with 6GB of the sweet stuff, it is becoming increasingly clear that this quite possibly is not the case. A tweet sent out by tipster Ricciolo (@Ricciolo1) suggests that there are no versions of the Galaxy Note 7 that will be equipped with 6GB of RAM. Thus far, the Geekbench tests seem to show that he is right.

The other specs found on the test show the Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood, with a quad-core CPU. That, of course, is no surprise. Additionally, the phablet had Android 6.0.1 installed. Earlier this month, another Geekbench test of the Galaxy Note 7 showed the device running Android 7.0. But that version of the phone was equipped with the older Exynos 7420 chipset.

The Verizon branded Galaxy Note 7 scored 2200 on the single-core test and a 4469 on the multi-core test. The eagerly awaited phablet is expected to be unveiled on August 2nd.

Samsung ships the worst implementation of SD 820, and the verizon bloat doesn't help. No wonder it scores like s**t. And I'm beginning to believe that SD823 doesn't exist. Samsung usually gets the dibs on latest Qualcomm SoCs. So if the note 6/7 doesn't have that, it's most likely just fan fiction.

Yeah, I always thought it was kind of weird that Qualcomm never even implied that the 823/821 existed, yet we all invested in the idea that the Note7 would have it. This kind of happens every year - the hype overshadows the reality, and we're all disappointed for a few weeks. But hey, looks like the Iris Scanner is finally happening. That's one new feature, I guess.

Lumia 950 and 950 XL have it. I'd rather have a better fingerprint scanner honestly. Looking at your phone with your eyes too close to the camera seems weird. And it won't work in certain lighting conditions.

The rumor says it's NIR, so lightning conditions won't matter.

second to your comment. I.dont feel like staring at the camera.to unlock the phone while I could unlock the phone without looking at it with the finger.

As long as the public is still dumb enough to stand in line and buy the same iPhone with the same UX interface for almost 10 years, I'd definitely co-sign this: It's an insult to their intelligence to expect the latest and greatest from them every single year/quarter, while the 2nd best stays mediocre; with fans standing by in their usual, unimpressed pose of arms crossed and tapping foot out in front. I'm sure someone at Samsung said, "Guys, trust me! there's plenty more idiots to go around into the cellphone market...! Let's just make the same damn phone! Apple's done it for over 10 years, they could give us at least 2!" lol

What happened to the days where phone would come out with an upgraded chipset at the end of the year? Eg nexus 5, lg g2, nexus 4. Now its basically thesame story with phones released late in the year having thesame chipset as phones released at the biginning of the year eg nexus 6p, 5x, note 7. This trend seems to have started 2 years ago. What the hell happened?

Yeah! There is no way that I can disagree this!

That should be obvious, the 820 will be 10 months old by then

I know, right. Why a 10 month old chip in flagship Note 6/7 device? Didn't they use to get newer chips then the Galaxy s variants?

Furbal unregistered

Yeah, I sure as hell will not be buying a US if it has the 820. Unfortunately not many people will care. Note should have the best of the best

Sure. Just like the A9 and A8, right? Lol.

Ummm, yes actually.

Ummm, no actually. They won in very limited subsets of benchmarks, but in overall performance benchmarks, lost mostly.

After several updates to fix it, perhaps...lol

Looks like Samsung is focusing all its R&D on just exynos. Feel sad for whoever purchases the poorly optimized SD variant...

Why? Do the Snapdragon chips not work?

Well, given how poorly it benchmarks compared to the Exynos variant ( http://goo.gl/OUoTW7 ), and how poorly the SD variant of the S7 performed in usage tests compared to the Exynos variant ( https://youtu.be/233f0ewFWGk ), I'm not holding my breath that Samsung will get it right with the SD variant this time...

If it doesn't come with 6GB RAM, I am not touching it. Its going to be outdated in no time.

How the hell would a 4GB RAM phone be outdated? At least for the next two years. Average consumers use less than 3GB of RAM.

because the note means the latest and greatest .. and if it doesnt have that no previous note user will touch it

sarcastic_nerd unregistered

And here i am wondering whether 4GB is worth it over 3GB. I honestly see no difference since with a lenient RAM management, you can cache 15-20 apps in RAM easily even with 3GB RAM. So even 4 seems kinda overkill.

Outdated? By the? Why does it need 6GB of RAM. Even the original Note and all the Notes before this one still do more than any phone on the planet. How exactly is it gonna be outdated?

I think what he was getting at. There are quite a few android phones in the market at the minute wth 6gb ram. The note is supposed to be the most powerfull phone on the planet and probley the most expensive android phone. So why does it not have the best specs.

No chance the Note 7 has the 6gb ram modules. There simply isn't any need at all for it. It'll have 4gb. Sammy will introduce the 6gb modules with the S8 and it's 4k display.

So its basically a oversized s7 wth an iris scanner and an s pen. I hope i am wrong otherwise i am waiting for the nexus.

You and me both. I have a S6 and note 5, and the wife has a S7. I am content with using both as daily drivers. I do tend to use the note 5 more especially when I am anticipating high usage days for work.
