Forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 Benchmarks Leak
Samsung is gearing as much as launch its subsequent massive flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, on the eve of the Cellular World Congress tradeshow subsequent month. However as is common with flagship product releases on this information-overloaded age, a number of tidbits of intel have leaked out forward of the official reveal.
The newest leaks purporting to element the S7 are benchmark scores for the only core and multi core variants of the telephone, picked up by a Hungarian Android weblog.
So how does the forthcoming SGS7 stack up towards final yr’s mannequin, based mostly on these leaked benchmarks?
Final yr’s single core Samsung Galaxy S6 (pictured above) obtained a Geekbench rating starting from round 1250 to 1450, whereas the multi-core flavour clocked within the area of 4200 to 4800. However the forthcoming SGS7 Geekbench rating leak pegs efficiency at 1873 (single core) and 5946 (multi-core) for the subsequent-gen handset — so a substantial step up within the efficiency stakes for each variants.
That stated, benchmarks don’t essentially paint an trustworthy image of smartphone efficiency. And Samsung has beforehand been accused of rigging benchmark scores for its flagship smartphones by optimizing efficiency on recognized benchmark software program… So whereas the leaked scores sound spectacular — the multi-core variant apparently topping the present record of benchmarked Android units — the proof of the pudding can be within the consuming, as they are saying. (For somewhat comparative context, listed here are iPhone 6S benchmarks.)
Different particulars that may be gleaned from the leak embrace that the SGS7 is operating Android 6.zero.1, and has an eight core chipset — presumed to be Samsung Exynos, given these eight cores — operating at 1.59Ghz. RAM appears to be 4GB. So just about as you’d anticipate.
Prior leaks referring to the forthcoming SGS7’s options have recommended it is going to have a strain-delicate display (to play catch-up with Apple’s 3D Contact function on the iPhone 6S); and a new excessive-velocity charging USB Sort-C port for even quicker full day charging.
Digital camera enhancements are additionally slated, with low mild efficiency enhancements and hardware that’s flush with the again of the telephone, so no lens bulge.
Both means, there isn’t a lot time left to attend to seek out out — with a few month to go till Samsung’s massive reveal. Whether or not a new Galaxy flagship can maintain its fortunes in an more and more aggressive Android OEM smartphone area stays to be seen.
Samsung’s working revenue declined for seven consecutive quarters earlier than final October’s third-quarter earnings lastly returned it to progress. Maintaining that momentum going will probably be key for the corporate in 2016, making the SGS7 an important launch.
