It looks like, slowly but surely, the Samsung Galaxy S7 rumor mill is gaining momentum. This is not at all surprising tough as Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are already old news by today’s standards and Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge Plus are almost official (August 13th).
Back in July we heard that the Galaxy S7 is codenamed Jungfrau and that Samsung is strongly considering Snapdragon 820 as a potential chipset for its device (the same report mentioned that an Exynos version is also in the works).
Friday, the Galaxy S7 returned under the spotlight as a new rumor claimed that Samsung has switched to “Agile” development process in order to be able to finalize its upcoming flagship by December and thus shaving 1 to 2 month from the entire planning-to-store-shelves life cycle.
Now a new leaks brings the Jungfrau and the Snapdragon 820 pair back to the forefront. Take a looks and join us after the break:
What you’re seeing above allegedly are some snapshots of internal Samsung documents concerning the company’s Android M upgrade program.
As it can easily be seen, Samsung added at one point support for the MSM8996 and Jungfrau pair. Of course, MSM8996 is the Snapdragon 820 and Jungfrau is the rumored Galaxy S7 codename. What’s maybe even more interesting is the Hero codename/keyword but we’re not even going to speculate on what this means or what are the implications.
So, if these leaks are the real deal, it looks like Samsung is strongly considering outfitting the Galaxy S7 with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820. However, we’re sure that the Galaxy S6 and Snapdragon 810 pair was put through the motions at one point and we all know how things turned out.
Considering the beastly rumored Snapdragon 820 specs, would you like to see Samsung’s next iteration in the Galaxy S series powered by Qualcomm’s chipset? Let us know in the comments section.
