Galaxy S7 rumored to come in three different variants

Samsung is reportedly prepping three different versions of the upcoming Galaxy S7, each with a different processor. According to SamMobile, the South Korean company will offer a slightly different version of the flagship phone depending on where in the world you purchase it.

Specifically, the company plans to pack the Galaxy S7 with a cutting edge Exynos M1 processor in Korea, Japan and Europe. Meanwhile, Indian shoppers will get a slightly less powerful Exynos 7422-powered handset. Finally, Samsung will apparently ship the Galaxy S7 to the U.S. and China with a Snapdragon 820 onboard.

This would be the first time the company released a device with three different processors, though in the past Samsung has offered two different versions of its flagship phones depending on region. The Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge Plus all came equipped with the same Exynos 7420 chip around the world.

Samsung still has at least a few more months before the Galaxy S7 actually arrives, and plenty can change between now and then. The company typically reveals its new S series phone in late February or early March, though recent rumors suggest the release could be pushed up by a month or two.
