Samsung Galaxy S7 benchmark test reveals camera specs

The Galaxy S7 will feature a 12MP camera, according to a recent benchmark test. All will be revealed in February when Samsung announces the handset.

We’re just a couple of weeks away from Samsung unveiling the Galaxy S7, but unofficial news won’t stop leaking. This time, the benchmark test from AnTuTu has revealed that the Galaxy S7 will feature a 12MP camera.

By comparison, the Galaxy S6 had a 16MP camera, so it seems unusual that we’d see a reduction here. Still, megapixels aren’t everything, so perhaps Samsung is shoring up the camera’s specs elsewhere.

It’s worth noting that the post states that the phone is still in its testing phase. Perhaps these aren’t the final specs after all.

The benchmark test also reveals that the handset will feature a 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The tested model feature Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 chip, though there are rumours that Samsung will utilise a Qualcomm chip, specifically the Snapdragon 820, in some territories.

All will be revealed in February when Samsung officially announces the Galaxy S7.
