The latest benchmarks for the Samsung Galaxy S7 show the handset with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and as we mentioned previously, this suggests that Samsung will offer the S7 with two processor options.
The graph below was shared on Weibo and it apparently shows the handset with two different versions of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, one listed as the 820-A the other as the 820-B.
Previous benchmarks of the Samsung Galaxy S7 have shown the handset with a 5.7 inch display with a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, the device was also shown with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM, plus 64GB of built in storage.
The cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S7 were shown to be the exact same ones as the Galaxy S6, a 5 megapixel camera on the front and a 16 megapixel camera on the back.
We suspect that these are not the final specifications on the new Galaxy S7, the handsets which have appeared in the benchmarks are more than likely test prototypes that Samsung is using to test out these two processors.
From the benchmarks we have seen it would appear that Samsung has plans to launch two different models of the Galaxy S7, one with an Exynos 8990 processor, the other with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.
This is something that Samsung did in the past until the Galaxy S6 was released, the company chose to use their own processor for the S6 range due to the reported overheating issues with the Snapdragon 810.
