Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S7 less then a month from now during MWC 2016 in Barcelona, so it’s unsurprising to see so many details about the highly-anticipated flagship surfacing online. S7 leaks and reports make the headlines almost on a daily bases and today we get to see a Geekbench listing of the SM-930A model.
Many of you might already be familiar to the SM-G930 model number which is associated with the Galaxy S7. The letter at the end is for identifying specific carrier or regional models and in our case the “A” stands for AT&T. For what it’s worth the Verizon model should have model number SM-G930V, the one for Sprint SM-G930P, and SM-G930T for the T-Mobile variant. The same lettering will be used for the Galaxy S7 Edge, but with SM-G935 up front.
Returning to the Geekbench sighting, the AT&T model appears to be underpinned by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor. Unsurprising news given that the phone is expected to drop with a Snapdragon 820 SoC in North America and Europe and with an Exynos 8890 in Asia and several other markets. Even though the benchmark doesn’t explicitly reads “Snapdragon 820” we’ve been able to tell from the motherboard which is listed as “MSM8896.” We’re talking about a 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz.
Other than revealing the processor, the benchmark listing also reveals what most reports have suggested: that the Galaxy S7 will feature 4 GB of RAM. It was also revealed that the phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is nothing but a confirmation for previous rumors.
