Samsung’s next phablet has appeared on a benchmark site, revealing more details on what people can expect. However, while many are convinced that the Galaxy Note 7 will run on the upcoming Android 7.0 Nougat, another leak claims otherwise. What has Samsung got up its sleeves?
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Specs
One of the best ways to see what upcoming devices will feature is to look at their benchmark results. According to a new AnTuTu benchmarking site sighting, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will come with a model number SM-N930V. Information came from a report by GSM Arena.
Since the Galaxy Note 5 came with the model number N920, the leaked picture with the SM-N930 model number seems highly likely to be the next Note 7, according to the report. However, people should not get their hopes up yet because some of the numbers in the result are considered underwhelming. For instance, it posted 909 single-core score and 3,768 for multi-core. More importantly, the prototype in question only features 3GB of RAM.
There has been a little bit of confusion on this because the Note 7 has been linked to having no more less than 6GB. Furthermore, a perplexing thing about the leaked benchmark is that the handset runs on an Exynos 7420 from last year, instead of the rumored Exynos 8893 intended specifically for the Note 7.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Running on Android 6.1?
Another report from Slash Gear also begs to raise the question on whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will run on Android 7.0 Nougat. According to the report, another GFXBench siting of model N935F, also believed to be Galaxy Note 7, suggests that the device will run on an unannounced Android 6.1 version.
The device also runs on 4GB RAM which is contradicting to the earlier report. Samsung has not released a statement on the matter, so people will have to wait until the final announcement. All leaks and tips should be taken with a grain of salt.
