A recent Geekbench score reveals a Samsung SM-G930W8 which features either Snapdragon, Exynos, MediaTek Helio X20 or X25 chipset. Lets look into the model number of the device which went through the benchmark. The part ‘G930’ tells us that the device is none other than the Samsung Galaxy S7 released this February. The ‘W’ in model number is usually used by Samsung for Canadian variants of their smartphones.
If you scroll down the benchmark result (provided in the source link below), you’ll come across Exynos octa-core processors along with deca-core processors – MT6798 or MT6797T. These deca-core processors are more commonly known under the names MediaTek Helio X20 and X25 respectively. For those who don’t know the difference between the chipsets, MediaTek Helio X25 is an overclocked version of the X20 which allows it to compete with the CPU performance capabilities of the Samsung’s very own Exynos chipset. It should be noted that the Helio X20 features 3 GB of RAM while both X25 and Xynos host 4GB of RAM. Apart from that, X25 and X20 are almost identical to each other.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung Galaxy S7 was released this February on the MWC event. Its sports a 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution display whose pixels amount to ~576 ppi. Other features include 32 GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 12 MP primary camera, 8 MP front shooter, 3000 mAh battery, Water/dust resistance and Android 6.0 Marshmallow atop of TouchWiz UI.
Stay tuned for further updates.
