The rumor mill is abuzz about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S7 flagship phone, which is expected to show up at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The latest tidbits of information about the phone's innards just popped up in the AnTuTu benchmark database.
The model that just showed up in the benches is the Exynos-powered SM-G930F. This information seems to substantiate previous rumors saying the Galaxy S7 will come with two different spec lists: one for the international market, powered by a Samsung-made Exynos 8 octa-core SoC, and the other for the US, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 under the hood.
The SoCs will be accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash storage. A 12MP rear-facing camera will take pretty pictures to show off on the phone's 5.1-inch, 2560x1440 Super AMOLED display. Well-known leaker Evan Blass says we'll see the S7 in three versions: Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and S7 Edge+. Additional rumors say that the display is pressure-sensitive, and that the phone's glass-backed body is made out of a magnesium alloy.
