Both Samsung Galaxy S7 models will be super powerful
Published 08/12/2015 | 10:10
Samsung will reportedly use two different chipsets for the Galaxy S7, but there's no need to fear as the Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 are powerful chips.
Samsung looks set to release two versions of its Galaxy S7 flagship, but both look set to be powerful devices.
Benchmark scores have leaked for the Exynos 8890 chipset and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, both of which are expected to feature in the Galaxy S7. The Snapdragon 820 achieved a score of 5423 points, while the Exynos 8890 chipset scored quite a bit higher at 6908.
By comparison, the iPhone 6s achieved a score of 4351, while the iPad Pro scored 5468 points. That just goes to show how powerful the Galaxy S7's chips will be, assuming these scores are accurate, that is.
For now, we'd advise taking the benchmark results with a pinch of salt. But those hoping to upgrade their handset in 2016 should be advised to keep an eye on how the Galaxy S7 performs in tests closer to release.
