Samsung Galaxy S7 Exynos 8890 Processor Confirmed by Benchmark Test; 12MP Camera & Other Specs Revealed

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus

Earlier reports speculated that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will arrive boasting the Snapdragon 820 processor. Plus there is also another variant with the company’s own Exynos chipset. Reports suggested that the model boasting Qualcomm’s latest will be shipped to North America, while the Exynos chipset variant will land in countries in Asia.

Now, this piece of speculation about the Galaxy S7 has come to the fore again owing to a recent post from AnTuTu’s Weibo page.  It listed the specs for a Samsung Galaxy S7 device possessing the Exynos 8890 chip. The post reveals other specs on the device including a 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 display, 64GB storage onboard, 4GB RAM and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. These are the specs that any fan would expect from an upcoming Samsung flagship device. Furthermore, these specs quite match what Samsung loyalists have already seen in a previous AnTuTu leak for the Galaxy S7 Edge.

The latest AnTuTu posts also suggests that the device will sport a 12-MP primary snapper and a 5MP front-facing camera. The speculated snappers may not go down well with fans since it’s a downgrade from the Galaxy S6, which showed-off a 16MP camera.

However if it’s any consolation, rumors suggest that the Galaxy S7 (Edge) with a 12-MP snapper will boast of a much larger aperture (f/1.7) in comparison to its predecessor (f/1.9) and a massive 3600mAh battery. The large aperture size would enable users to take better images in low-light conditions. Additionally, a report on Digital Trends predicts that the variants may come equipped with the dual-PD (dual-photodiode) technology that delivers a much accurate auto-focus feature. While the megapixels aren’t everything but its does seem quite strange that Samsung would play around with the much-loved and appreciated feature on the Galaxy S6.

Since the source cannot be verified and with no way to ascertain that this may just be a prototype of the Galaxy S7, take this information with a large dose of skepticism.
