Galaxy S7 benchmark obliterates all but one phone

Last month the Galaxy S7 was spotted by benchmarking site AnTuTu, revealing a list of specs but no official score. Now we’re learning exactly how well the device performed while packing Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 processor.

The Galaxy S7 scored an impressive 125,288 points. By comparison, last year’s Galaxy Note 5 came in at just 68,345 points. However, GforGames points out that Samsung’s new phone still falls short of the LeTV Max Pro’s 133,357 points.

Qualcomm unveiled the LeTV Max Pro last month at CES, positioning it as a sort of reference device for the Snapdragon 820 chip. It’s possible Samsung still has some work to do optimizing the Galaxy S7 for this new processor, though, to be fair, both scores are pretty impressive. You might not even notice the difference in performance between the two devices if you actually used them side by side.

The new benchmark also comes with a list of specs. The Galaxy S7 is set to pack a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Samsung is also expected to announce a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge with a curved display. Both devices will likely make their debut at an Unpacked event set for February 21 at Mobile World Congress, and we’ll be covering the show live from Barcelona.
