Samsung has always provided its users a fast and effective device performance in its Galaxy series. Samsung basically uses two types of processors for its devices, Snapdragon or Exynos. In the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 procesor, we can expect two different models with one having s Snapdragon 820 while other being an Exynos8.
Two Processors, One Process
Samsung used its homebuilt Exynos 7 processor in its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge and ditched the Snapdragon because of excessive complaints of overheating. However, in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Samsung might have two distinct processors for the same phone. The distinction would be made region wise and it might be a Snapdragon 820 Qualcomm or an Exynos 8890.
Which One is Better?
Several tests have been carried out to assess the performance by both the processors. A multi-core test proved that Exynos 8 is way superior to Snapdragon 820 as it showed the score of 5946 against a 4979. However, later single core tests proved that the case is opposite. The snapdragon scored 2282 against Exynos’s score of 1873. S7’s hardware should see improvements if it has a Snapdragon 820 in it. So it’s quite evident in many ways that Snapdragon 820 could be a better platform for Samsung if it wishes to introduce a faster user interface and quality gaming.
Different Regions to Have Different Chipsets
It is expected that this distinction will take place based on different regions. Samsung Exynos 8890 would be international unlocked and furthermore, it would be featuring T-mobile, Canada and Korean versions of Samsung Galaxy S7. Despite Snapdragon being the better processor, it will still be launched in a limited area which includes Verizon, U.S Cellular, and China. Rest of all would have an Exynos 8890 in them
According to a recent survey, Samsung has reported that it would launch both the models of Samsung Galaxy S7 together. We can see both of them in markets by Mid-February to March 2017 when Samsung launches its pair of Samsung GS7 and GS7 edge.
It is clearly proven that Snapdragon 820 would be a better processor for Samsung GS7. In fact, Samsung mobile chief has said “We have to use the best engines to make our products competitive, which is why we have chosen our own chips. But we may very well end up using products from Qualcomm again in the next Galaxy phone.”
So despite being a two model phone, Samsung GS7 would perform very well. However, there might be a few small issues with the Exynos 8890. We hope to see further improvements in both Snapdragon and Exynos processor.
