Samsung is already testing the successor to the Galaxy S6, and unlike last year, the company is quite interested in two variants of the device, one with an Exynos 8890 chipset and the other with a Snapdragon 820 SoC.
We reported a few weeks ago that Qualcomm has shipped a newer version of Snapdragon 820 chipset to Samsung for testing and development. Now, a leaked benchmark comparison has surfaced on the Internet through Weibo, and it showcases improved performance of the new chipset prototype.
The graph shows that the performance of the Galaxy S7 with Snapdragon 820-B chipset has improved quite a lot when compared to the variant that is equipped with the Snapdragon 820-A SoC. The new chipset is offering 1.38x and 1.77x the performance over the older variant in terms of single-threaded integer and floating point operations.
It is evidently clear that Qualcomm is hard at work at improving the performance of its upcoming high-end mobile chipset after the massive failure of the Snapdragon 810, and Samsung has made it clear that they are open to using Snapdragon chipsets as long as there are no issues in performance or battery life.
