Unsurprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S7 went by unmentioned during CES 2016, but nevertheless, the handset’s launch day is nearing as we get closer to MWC. The SGS7 is indeed expected to make an official appearance during the Mobile World Congress in February, at which time Samsung will be preparing for the smartphone’s market launch which should take place a few weeks after the event comes to an end.
Until that special moment comes, however, the Galaxy S7 is bound to remain on our radar thanks to unofficial information, which brings us to the topic at hand: Apparently the Exynos 8890 powered SGS7 has recently been spotted in the AnTuTu database, where most of the handset’s hardware specifications have been uncovered / confirmed.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Surfaces in AnTuTu
According to a Weibo blog post signed by the AnTuTu team, the benchmarking database recently welcomed a new Samsung terminal identified by model number “SM-G930F”. The AnTuTu team suspects the device is none other than the Galaxy S7, and indeed, the model number does correspond with earlier data hinting at the smartphone’s model numbers for particular US-based networks, including Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular.
More to the point at hand, AnTuTu was apparently able to gather some hardware information regarding the SM-G930F, revealing that the smartphone is equipped with a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560, an Exynos 8890 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of onboard storage, and a 12 MP main camera coupled with a 5 MP front-facing sensor.
Last but not least, AnTuTu adds that the smartphone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Although no benchmark performance scores have been revealed by AnTuTu, it’s safe to say that the Exynos 8890 will find itself in the same league as the Snapdragon 820 SoC, so we expect a score of roughly 130,000 points. It’s only a matter of time before we find out which one of the two main Galaxy S7 variants will come out on top in synthetic benchmarks.
