It appears that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 7 smartphone has undergone benchmark testing, and in the process, leaking some of its features and functionalities in the interwebs. Benchmarking site An Tu Tu has apparently posted a leaked image showing the specifications of the Android powered phablet, including its name and model number (SM-N930V), courtesy of leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer. The current Galaxy Note 5 possesses the model number SM-N920, which means that it is a good bet that the SM-N930V leaked refers to the Galaxy Note 7 (Samsung has decided to skip offering the Galaxy Note 6 and proceed directly to releasing the Galaxy Note 7).
The specifications leaked by An Tu Tu also show that the Galaxy Note 7 will run on Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Processors wise, the device will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 four core chip set, plus an Adreno 540 graphics processor unit (GPU), aided by 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) as well as 64 gigabytes of onboard memory. Although the size of the handset’s display screen is not included, the resolution is listed at 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, which means that it will be an HD display screen. With regards to cameras, the Galaxy Note 7 is said to feature a 13 megapixel camera on the rear side and a 5 megapixel camera on the front side.
However, on another benchmarking site, GeekBench, the Galaxy Note 7 seems to feature different specifications. For instance, the model number is indicated as SM-N930F, the mobile operating system is Android 7.0 Nougat, and the processor is an octa core 1.5 GigaHertz chip set supported by 3 gigabytes of RAM. Some have suggested that the unit that had undergone benchmark testing in GeekBench was an early prototype of the Galaxy Note 7. According to a tweet posted by another leaker, Evan Blass, the Galaxy Note 7 could be officially announced in the early part of next month.
Despite being the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices, Samsung has been struggling with decreasing sales in the last two years. However, the release of its latest flagship devices (the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge) earlier this year has helped the South Korean mobile giant regain some of its bearings. Building on that momentum, the company is expecting some stellar sales results for the second quarter of 2016. With the launch of its latest Galaxy Note offering, Samsung should put itself in a good position to keep the winning streak alive.
