Not unlike its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to hit the shelves State-side through all major carriers, and as some of you might recall, the model numbers associated with the variants at Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular have already been uncovered a couple of months ago.
However, today the story revolves more around AT&T’s variant, which recently made an appearance in Primelab’s backyard. The terminal has been recently benchmarked in Geekbench version 3.3.2, and of course, the handset conceals a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 under its hood.
Take a look at the performance results below and keep scrolling for more details.

Samsung Galaxy S7: AT&T Version Spotted in Geekbench
As the screenshot above reveals, the benchmarked Samsung Galaxy S7 variant bears the model number “SM-G930A”, which means it should be none other than the model destined for AT&T.
The handset runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and unsurprisingly, it rocks a Snapdragon 820 chipset (specifically, the more recent “revision 2”). Performance-wise, the smartphone yields 2,282 points and 4,979 points in single and multi-core tests respectively, which is a bit lower than expected – at least according to the performance levels showcased by Qualcomm’s own reference device. The aforementioned terminal was benchmarked back in December, at the official SD820 launch event, when it scored 2,320 and 5,369 points in single and multi-thread tests.
Needless to say, there’s still room for improvement by the time the Galaxy S7 will be ready for prime time, and as far as the handset’s debut goes, all evidence so far suggests that Samsung plans to introduce the S7 at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, on February 21st. Of course, the smartphone’s release in AT&T’s stores will come at a later date.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more so stay tuned.
