As most of you should be aware of, last week we spotted the Samsung Galaxy S7 for AT&T (model number SM-G930A) in the Geekbench database. Judging by Primelab’s benchmark results, we came to the conclusion that Samsung’s upcoming flagship phone has some catching up to do, as the smartphone’s performance levels fell rather short in contrast with Qualcomm’s reference phone powered by the same Snapdragon 820.
Today this has been reconfirmed by another synthetic benchmark from AnTuTu. The results below have been shared by the AnTuTu team on the Chinese microblogging website “Weibo”, and reveal that, once again, the Galaxy S7 needs to catch up with both Qualcomm’s reference device, as well as (at least) one of its Snapdragon 820-powered rivals: the LeTV Max Pro.

SD 820 Samsung Galaxy S7 Benchmarked by AnTuTu
The image above showcases the Galaxy S7’s ability to handle the latest version of AnTuTu’s benchmarking tool (v6.0), where the terminal scored a total of 125,288 points. In contrast, Qualcomm’s reference device powered by the same Snapdragon 820 SoC topped 131,648 points, whereas the beastly LeTV Max Pro – which was also benchmarked by AnTuTu in mid-December – scored a whopping 133,357 points.
Spec-wise, and at least on paper, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is very similar to the LeTV Max Pro. Both smartphones are equipped with a 2K display and 4 GB of RAM, and both terminals run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. In any case, it’s interesting to note that according to AnTuTu’s results, the LeTV Max Pro seems to tackle RAM and 3D-related tests more efficiently.
Needless to say, these fresh results reconfirm that the Samsung Galaxy S7 has some catching up to do, and we’re hoping that the Korean tech giant still has enough time to further optimize the handset by the time of its release.
We’ll keep you posted.
