According to the latest benchmark spotted online, this upcoming 5.1-inch handset will feature a Quad HD display, packing a Samsung Exynos 8890 processor and running Android Marshmallow out of the box.

The Galaxy S7 has been in the rumor mill for a while, and it looks like this handset will launch in more than just one version. Although Samsung still has to confirm this, it is almost certain that this handset will launch in a variant powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and one that uses the Exynos 8890 chip. While the Snapdragon-powered model was spotted on Geekbench last month, the Exynos 8890-driven one appeared earlier this week.

Next to the Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC, the Galaxy S7 SM-G930W8 features a 5.1-inch display with 2,560X1,440 pixels, a 5 MP front camera and a 12 MP image snapper on the back. The handset that has been tested using Geekbench runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. According to previous rumors, it should have 4 GB of memory and support for additional storage space via a microSD card slot.

All the above should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being, but the Galaxy S7 might arrive pretty soon. Although this is only a rumor as well, Samsung is expected to unveil this handset next month in Barcelona, during MWC 2016.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
