    The second hot Galaxy S7 rumor we have today is a new benchmark for what is probably the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S7. The model number on the Geekbench benchmark is SM-G930A. The "A" at the end has historically indicated the device was going to be for AT&T's network.

    The benchmark shows a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with a score of 2282 points in single core tasks and one of 4979. This would suggest that the U.S. version will again use the Snapdragon CPU following in Samsung's previous iterations (before the Galaxy S6). The only other useful information in the benchmark is that the phone will be sporting Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

    So far, it seems that all of the predictions are likely to cone true for the next Galaxy S line for Samsung. For further discussion, here's our dedicated Galaxy S7 section: Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Plus, S7 Edge & S7 Edge Plus

    I'm pretty bummed that the U.S. version is only available in the Snapdragon variation, whereas the International version will sport the latest Exynos 8890 (aka - code named M1 Mongoose) brand chip. (similar to how Sammy used to release past Galaxy S versions) That said, the Exynos single core results clocked in at 2304, with a mind blowing 8038 multi core score, obliterating anything else on the market. **drool** It's also been reported the Exynos brand chip will only sport 3GB of ram, whereas it's Snapdragon counterpart will ship with the aforementioned 4GB. While benchmark scores don't mean all that much in real world use, deep down we all want our next flagship purchase to be king of the hill for at least a few months. Both versions will sport the latest in magnesium alloy unibody construction, which is reported to be much lighter & stronger than current aluminum based models.
