Samsung Galaxy S7 spotted on Geekbench

Samsung Galaxy S7/Project Lucky spotted on Geekbench
Galaxy S7 details on Geekbench
After a 4G LTE model with 4 GB of RAM, a new Galaxy S7 variant shows up on Geekbecnh, but this time without LTE and with less memory.

The upcoming Galaxy S7 is also known as Project Lucky and, if the rumors turn out to be true, Samsung will unveil it in more than six months from now. Earlier this month, a variant of this next-gen flagship has been spotted on Geekbench. The handset tested back then had 4G LTE and 4 GB of memory, and now one of its siblings shows up carrying less memory and without 4G connectivity.

The new Galaxy S7 lacks 4G LTE and only appears to feature 3 GB of memory, but seems to compensate with slightly higher benchmark scores. The LTE variant scored 1415 for single core and 4932 for multi-core while the new variant achieved 1532 and 5434. However, the Geekbench entries also reveal that these two handsets use different processors, both eight-core parts - ARMv8 @ 1.38 GHz for the LTE Lucky and ARM SAMSUNG @ 1.50 GHz for the other.

Previous rumors mentioned that Samsung plans to launch a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820-powered Galaxy S7 on the US market that will feature a 20 MP camera with a lens cover, but this handset is also expected to bring back the microSD slot. Obviously, all the above should be taken with a grain of salt for now.

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.
