Samsung Galaxy Note 7 benchmark may reveal a disappointing surprise

While a couple of rumors have suggested that Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy Note 7 smartphone will pack 6GB of RAM, more than enough by nearly all standards, a new benchmark listing suggests it may not have that much.

Galaxy-Note-7-AnTuTu-4GB-RAM

An AnTuTu benchmark that allegedly shows the specs for the Galaxy Note 7 shows that the phone has 4GB of RAM instead of 6GB. Additionally, it points to a Snapdragon 820 processor instead of a Snapdragon 821 chip, which a few reports have also pointed to.

The phone will no doubt still have all the makings of a flagship with those specs, though, and toss in 64GB of expandable storage and a Quad HD display and it’s a device worth looking forward to. But, this benchmark suggests that it might not actually offer big upgrades over the Galaxy S7, at least from a raw hardware perspective.

We can still look forward to S Pen advancements, software changes, an iris scanner and, presumably, a large battery. This is by no means a definitive list of specs, though; it’s possible this AnTuTu benchmark is totally bogus and that we’ll still see a bit more power under the hood.
