Galaxy S7 edge (SM-G935A) appears on AnTuTu benchmark with 12 MP camera, 5.1-inch display


Last updated: January 11th, 2016 at 11:56 UTC+02:00

Recent leaks have suggested that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be sporting a 12-megapixel camera instead of a 16-megapixel one as we have seen on Samsung flagships since 2014. If you were hoping that might not be the case, then you might need to be prepared to be disappointed, as the Galaxy S7 edge’s listing on the AnTuTu benchmark (model number SM-G935A for carrier AT&T) with a 12 MP sensor is yet another indication the megapixel count will be getting a downgrade.

Of course, just because the camera isn’t as high-resolution doesn’t mean it will be worse than what Samsung offered before. The new camera is said to have an aperture of f/1.7, which should make it even better for low-light photography, and Samsung’s excellent software processing means the end result in terms of image quality shouldn’t be affected. You might not be able to zoom in as much as you can on a 16-megapixel photo, but that shouldn’t exactly be a huge issue for most. Oh, and as we had reported, this also means the camera sensor will not protrude as much as it does on the Galaxy S6 family or the Note 5.

The benchmark listing also reveals something odd – the phone is listed with a 5.1-inch display instead of the 5.5-inch display that has been rumored for the Edge variant. This suggests the possibility that the 5.5-inch model will be the Galaxy S7 Plus, which a rumor said could launch alongside the S7 and S7 edge instead of later down the year with the Note 6. It could also be that there is no 5.5-inch variant in the works, or that the device in the benchmark is a prototype model that won’t be released as the retail unit.

Other specs in the benchmark thankfully match what we know until now – a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel front camera, 64GB of storage, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and a display resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. It will be very interesting to see what the actual devices will feature when they launch next month; benchmark listings are usually indicative of the final specs, and the 5.1-inch display in the AnTuTu listing is something that has us more confused than we were before.
