Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge AnTuTu benchmark shows possible specs

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge  appeared in AnTuTu tests this morning and it appears that some rumored specs will not make an appearance in the device. According to this “official” spec benchmark, Samsung’s 2016 flagship will have a 5.1-inch QHD display paired with a Snapdragon 820 processor and some other interesting features like water resistance and an SD slot.

Apart from the processor and display size, Galaxy S7 Edge AnTuTu information says that the device will have 4GB of RAM, and a 12MP rear camera. Why only 12MP though, other reports put the camera at 20MP?! Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have 16MP back cameras and this drop in megapixels could be seen as an alarming point for many, but less MPs does not mean less-detailed pictures. It could just mean a slight drop in overall resolution. Previous reports suggested a camera with an aperture of f/1.7, which means that Samsung fans should not feel startled yet.


The last piece of info from the AnTuTu benchmarks relates to the OS, which will be, of course, Android 6.0 Marshmallow. No surprises there.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Exynos crush the competition in benchmark tests

It appears that the Samsung flagships are the new monsters of the virtual world, especially since their benchmarks have managed to put all other competitors to the ground. Even if these numbers will not show you the exact manner in which devices will perform in different conditions, they do show us something about the performances a device can have.

What Samsung is trying to convey with these benchmarks is that its Exynos chip is extremely fast. AnTuTu scores show nearly 70,000, which means the device performs much faster than Nexus 6, HTC One M9 and LG G3 for example.



This number comes from a benchmark captured in a video at MWC, and you can see it above. All of 2014 flagships hit only around 40k to 50k in AnTuTu so far, and HTC M9 managed to get to 55,000.



The results are coming from devices shown at MWC and the software may not be the one that will ship later this year. Of course, there is also the lingering problem of benchmark overclocking or tampering.
