Very recently,?TheBitBag reported that one of the variants of Samsung?s Galaxy Note 7 got certified in Russia. Following this news, the same phablet has silently visited the famous AnTuTu benchmark site, revealing the key configurations and features.
Citing AnTuTu,?Times News says the Galaxy Note 7, tied to model number ?SM-N930V,? will come powered by Qualcomm?s Snapdragon 820 SoC. Hence, it is safe to assume that this model might be headed to the U.S., as other regions usually get the Exynos variant.
While on the topic, a recent report noted that flagship Galaxy S7?s Exynos variant is more powerful than the Snapdragon-powered devices. This is very interesting precisely because for a long time, Samsung fans and critics across the globe believed that the two chipsets are almost similar when it comes to performance. But now, it?s crystal clear that Exynos has a significant advantage over the other model.
Coming back to the Galaxy Note 7 specifications, the benchmark listing says this device will carry a QHD screen resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. However, the listing doesn?t show the display size. Past rumors suggested that the screen size could be in the ambit of 5.8 and 6.0-inches.
Moreover, the hardware and software components will apparently be backed by 4GB of RAM, and not 6GB as rumored earlier. This handset will come equipped with 64GB of native storage space.
Samsung has apparently mounted a 13MP rear-facing camera unit, in addition to a 5MP front-facing shooter for selfies and video chats. Although Android N Nougat is being rumored to run the handset, the listing says Samsung will settle for Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.
Meanwhile, a Galaxy Note 7 variant with the codename ?SM-N930F? visited the Geekbench benchmark test site recently. The specifications, according to that site, include 3GB of RAM, Android 7.0 Nougat and an octa-core processor running at 1.5GHz.
Readers should, however, note that Samsung has not confirmed the Galaxy Note 7?specifications or features thus far. Come August, this device will be launched and will go on to replace the existing Galaxy Note 5.
