Samsung Galaxy S7 Gets Benchmarked Again; A Phone Upgrade Program To Launch Alongside

Samsung Galaxy S7 is very close from becoming official. The handset has leaked numerous times and we know almost everything about it, including the Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 variants. Thanks to newly leaked benchmarks, we can compare performance between two versions.

Both variants have passed through Geekbench 3, alongside Kirin 950 and some other flagship chipsets. According to the benchmark, the Exynos 8890 scores 5,946 in multi-core and 1,873 in single-core tests, while the Snapdragon 820 variant scored 4,979 and 2,282, respectively. It is still too early to tell if they were running final software so the results can change. For comparison, the Kirin 950 scored impressive 6,088 in multi-core, but only 1,646 in single-core tests.

Another interesting story came across, saying Samsung could launch a phone upgrade program, similar to what Apple has. Long story short, those who purchase the Galaxy S7 smartphone from Samsung will be able to pay in monthly installments and they will be able to upgrade their device every year.
