Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 appears on Geekbench

41

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.
