An Exynos 8893 powered Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was put through the Geekbench benchmark test, and in the process the phablet racked up impressive scores. The SM-N935F, believed to be a variant of the Galaxy Note 7, was listed with 4GB of RAM on board. We expect Samsung to stuff 6GB of RAM into the final production version of the phone.
The single-core score was 2300 while the multi-core was an impressive 8110. Android 6.0.1 was pre-installed on the unit that was tested. Just the other day, another version of the Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N930F) was put through Geekbench with an older Exynos 7420 SoC under the hood. Even with Android 7.0 installed, the less powerful chipset resulted in a single-core score of 909 and a multi-core score of 3768.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be driven by the Exynos 8893 chipset everywhere but the U.S. and China. In those two markets, we should see the Snapdragon 823 SoC inside. The phablet will be unveiled on August 2nd with a launch not too long afterward.
