Samsung rumored to launch three Galaxy S7 variants, each with a different processor

We had reported yesterday that Samsung is currently optimising its brand new Exynos 8890 SoC with Mongoose CPU cores for better performance, and that it might be used in the Galaxy S7 next year. Now, we are back with yet another important piece of information regarding the Galaxy S7 and the chipsets that might be used in different variants of the device.

According to the information that we’ve received today, Samsung might launch three different processor variants of the Galaxy S7. Remember the Exynos 7422 chipset that was supposed to debut with the Galaxy Note 5? Well, Samsung supposedly has plans to launch a variant of the Galaxy S7 with that chipset in India. The Exynos 8890 (a.k.a Exynos M1)-powered variant of the device is expected to be launched in Korea, Japan, and the European markets. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 variant that will be available to consumers in China and the US will feature a Snapdragon 820 SoC.

If this information turns out to be correct, it would be the first time that Samsung would launch a flagship smartphone with three different processor variants. However, even if the company manages to launch the device earlier than usual, the Galaxy S7 is still months away from being finalised. A lot of things could be changed till then, and a lot of decisions could be altered within the company, so we advise you to take this report with a pinch of salt

i wish they would actually do an apple clone in the sense that all s7 have the same specs. it will make updates so much easier.
i always feel that some areas get a second best device because of multiple hardwares masquerading as the same unit

The 7422 indicates Samsung is about to launch it’s highly anticipated extremely fast and energy efficient ePoP All in One SoC Processor in India. I sure hope they offer ePoP on other models too!

New Mongoose with ePoP would decimate literally all the competition in benchmarking. Especially if they also include that new GPU built on AMD ATI Graphics Platform with first mobile LPHBM Memory on it!!! Bye bye Apple and so long to the rest of the wantabee SoC designers. Who can’t fabricate memory and SoC processors on their own 20nm, 14nm and 10nm fabrication process! :D

S7 in India with 7422… No way… we are not fools to buy 7422… You sammy always treat Indians bad. You test all your devices in india R&D dep.. but final outcome is unacceptable…
Fist develop QOS is India… For Note 5… 50% note 5 devices come with defects.. we cant fight you for DOA anymore… even i and ny friend had spent 3 days for getting DOA..

If S7 won’t be Launching Mangoose CPU over Exynos 8890 Variant in India, forget if anyone will buy it. At-least SD820 should be dere..
7422 is a really very bad Move & i personally don’t think Samsung will do that !!

I don’t think you understand that what they are basically saying it that Samsung will most likely be offering both a high end and a lower end S7 in most all countries. Especially in India….. where people are buying more high end phones than ever before. Actually Samsung is still maintaining their #1 selling phone status in India even over their own phone makers.

Because they actually make them there in their own factories. It’s going to be a long time before Foxconn can get Apple phones into production there and we already know they’ll still be extremely over priced. Just so they can keep their noses browning the rears of their share holders. Who they hold more dearly appreciated than their own customers!

This is just rumors anyway and no doubt about India will soon top China as the fastest growing smartphone market or you wouldn’t see Apple with their 1% market share scrambling to get in it! ….so do as he says here; “Take this report with a grain of salt” as just a rumor at this point!

” Just so they can keep their noses browning the rears of their share holders. Who they hold more dearly appreciated than their own customers!”.

Exactly what Samsung has been doing…

If Samsung was brown nosing share holder’s rears like Apple, they would be making even greater Profits than Apple. Because that’s what the comment is basically saying. That basically proves they are more concerned with making greater profits than actually innovating for the benefit of their customers, the way Samsung has always done!

Which is exactly why….. Samsung remains the #1 smartphone maker on the planet, along with everything else they are #1 in across the widest selection and most diverse product range on the planet too. Whereas Apple remains totally dependent on Foxconn, Pegatron, Samsung, LG, Sony, and every other parts supplier to keep more profits for share holders, instead of actually spending a more than they have to. Which is why they remain the iTrinket Design House Only Greediest Company on Earth!!! xD

At least it’s better than Apple mixing in Samsung and TSMC chips in their devices randomly even when there is quite a difference in performance between these two chips.

Because Samsung keeps the best for its Homeland South Korea, US and China market , I would prefer to buy the one with Mangoose CPU the exynos 8890 or with the Snapdragon 820 SoC
