Samsung Galaxy Note 7 makes an appearance on GeekBench
Just a few weeks before its official reveal, the next Galaxy Note phablet has already appeared on the Geekbench database with some new hardware info. Accordingly, Samsung will use a higher-clocked Exynos 8890 SoC running at 1.79 GHz with 4 GB RAM for final single-core and multi-core scores of 2300 and 8110 points, respectively.
Another variant of the Galaxy Note has also been spotted with the Snapdragon 820 SoC clocked at 1.59 GHz, which will likely be the model for North American and Chinese users compared to the Exynos European model above. Previous rumors claimed that Qualcomm would be providing a higher-clocked Snapdragon 821/823 for the next Galaxy Note, but this latest entry from Geekbench is saying otherwise. Thus, single-core and multi-core Geekbench scores are lower at 2330 and 5360 points, respectively. All other specifications appear equal including the 4 GB of RAM.
Samsung will be hosting a press event for the Galaxy Note 7 and potentially other devices as well this August 2nd. The phablet is expected to borrow heavily from the lauded Galaxy S7 series including the potential for a dustproof and waterproof chassis.
