Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G90W8) Spotted On GeekBench; Could Release In Canada
Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The company is reportedly working on a number of S7 variants due in the coming months. Among them is the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930W8), which appeared on GeekBench and is likely to debut in Canada soon.Advertisement
This new Galaxy S7 is powered by MediaTek Helio processors coming in two versions — MediaTek Helio X20 and X25. While both chipsets have almost similar functions, the X25 is an overclocked version that syncs well with the CPU performance of Samsung’s Exynos.
Reports do not confirm whether Samsung will sell a MediaTek variant in Canada, but the letter “W” in SM-G930W8 is a strong hint the model is coming there. Samsung usually follows the trend of using “W” as official labels for its Canadian versions. Although the new device has not yet been named, reports suggest it could possibly be called the Galaxy S7 Neo, states GSM Arena.
There’s another device in the making, a follow up to last year’s Galaxy S6 Active, the Galaxy S7 Active. Initially, the phone will be retailed by AT&T and will get distributed to other carriers. There is another variant, a mini-version of the Galaxy S7, that is receiving a lot of attention. Just like its rival, Apple’s 4-inch iPhone SE, a new Galaxy S7 Mini is expected be a huge success.
Tech Times reports that the Helio X25 variant will come with 4GB of RAM, while the Helio X20 model will be powered by 3GB of RAM. Owing to higher RAM, the Helio X25 scores higher than the X20. On the other hand, the international variants of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are equipped with Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 processor. So, it turns out that the Helio X25 variant is the most powerful of all.
