Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (SM-G935F) with Exynos 8890 surfaces on Geekbench

Latest Samsung news

Last updated: January 29th, 2016 at 10:34 UTC+02:00

We’ve already reported that Samsung is gearing up to announce the Galaxy S7 edge alongside its flagship Galaxy S7 at its Unpacked 2016 event on February 21, which incidentally is intentionally the day before Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona. Fortunately, the rumor mill has been spinning at a rate of knots, and we’ve seen quite a bit of both devices already. Just to add to the hordes of leaks, the international S7 edge has today appeared in Geekbench’s online database bearing the model number SM-G935F.

Unfortunately, the handset didn’t score as high as we’d hoped in the benchmark. It only pulled in a single-core score of 1363, and a multi-core rating of 4951, which doesn’t match the results obtained for the Snapdragon 820-powered Galaxy S7 that appeared on Geekbench last month with an astonishing score of 2456 in the single-core test and an eye-watering outcome of 5423 in the multi-core test. However, it’s perfectly feasible that the stunted numbers are the result of a prototype unit operating at a slower clock speed for testing purposes.

If the recent AnTuTu benchmark is anything to go by, it looks like the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will bundle matching specifications. The regular model will sport a 5.1-inch display, while the curved variant will feature a 5.5-inch panel. All other internals appear to remain the same, meaning that both units will pack the brand new Exynos 8890/Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel camera instead of a 16-megapixel sensor, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and 64GB of internal storage.

Both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will ship running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface plastered over the top. This is great news for diehard fans of the open-source operating system who prefer a more stock-like experience as the South Korean company has been working on toning down the latest iteration of its front-end skin in order to make it smoother and more compliant with Google’s Material Design guidelines.
