Galaxy S7 specs leak out in alleged new benchmark

The Galaxy S7 has been buzzing around the rumor mill for a while. It’s no secret that Samsung is already hard at work on its next flagship phone, but all we really had to go on was hearsay and speculation. Now the first alleged Galaxy S7 benchmark is here, and it potentially reveals a lot about the upcoming device.

According to an Antutu benchmark, the Galaxy S7 (codenamed “Lucky”) will sport a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM and, in this case, 64GB of storage. None of this comes as a huge surprise, though we still hope Samsung upgrades its cameras at least a little bit, even if it is already amazing. That 5.7-inch screen may seem out of place, but it does line up with one recent report claiming the Galaxy S7 could come in two different sizes.

Of course, one benchmark doesn’t tell the full story. We still don’t know how Samsung plans to improve its already excellent Galaxy S6 design for the S7. The company will probably also want to introduce a few new features to match the latest from Apple and the rest of the industry.

Samsung typically unveils its new flagship phone at Mobile World Congress in late February or early March, though it’s possible the company could push the Galaxy S7 up by a month like it did with the Galaxy Note 5. Either way, there’s still plenty of time before we get to see what’s already shaping up to be powerful new device.
