Before a phone launches, it stays in the spotlight for a while. The Samsung Galaxy S7 AT&T variant is one such device receiving a lot of attention at the moment. It is expected to launch during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month. That being said, a new AT&T Galaxy S7 variant was recently spotted on the Geekbench database.
Listed as SM-G930A, the device scored 2,282 points in the single-core benchmark test and 4,979 points in the multi-core test. A look at the Geekbench browser will also reveal details about the Samsung Galaxy S7 variant specs and features.
Another notable point of the Geekbench test result is that the single-core result of the AT&T bound Galaxy S7 variant is much higher than most other 2015 flagship smartphones. However, the multi-score result is similar to the points fetched by the Galaxy S6 in the same test.
Android Headlines report that the device will come with 4GB of RAM and will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC. The benchmark listing also shows Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system for the model. Apart from these, the device is rumoured to feature a 12.2MP camera, but there is no mention whether it is the primary camera or secondary camera. In addition, the new Galaxy S7 variant is expected to ship with a massive battery.
VR-Zone had earlier reported about the Galaxy S7 U.S. release date. According to the source, Evan Blass wrote on Twitter that the Galaxy S7 will start selling in the U.S. market on March 11, two weeks after the phone is unveiled at the MWC event in Barcelona. The source also mentioned that the Galaxy S7 will go on sale in other markets apart from the U.S on the same date.
A report by Droid-Life explains how a model number is chosen for any particular handset according to specific carriers or regions. For instance, the Galaxy S7 comes with model number SM-G930. The last letter at the end of the model number points at the names of the carriers and therefore, the Verizon version of the Galaxy S7 is SM-G930V, the Sprint version is SM-G930P and the T-Mobile version is SM-G930T.
