Samsung Galaxy Note7 First Benchmarks

By 04:04 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments


The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is built on the S7 platform. This means the chipset is either Snapdragon 820 or an Exynos 8890 (which one you acquire depends on geography) and 4GB of RAM. Yep, there's no upgrade in Random-Access Memory (RAM) over the S7, despite the numerous 6GB rumors.

Anyway, we just got an early unit that isn't 100% ready for a review. It's the Exynos version, which is what Europeans have to see forward to, while the US is getting the Snapdragon one.

We'll start a full review when we acquire a proper retail unit, but we did try some benchmarks. And it comes as no surprise the Galaxy Note7 matched the S7 and S7 edge, the Exynos ones.


AnTuTu 6 does show a small gain over the S7 edge (both versions). Samsung touched up the software - definitely visually, but perhaps under the hood too. Or it could just be the benchmarks margin of error.

Baseimprint Operating System (OS) 2.0 recorded a significant jump in performance - maybe Samsung really did tune up the engine. We'll redo the benchmarks once we acquire our hands on a retail unit, but so far it looks like the Note7 might bring a performance boost even if the specs on paper don't show it.

The Exynos 8890 chipset features an octa-core Central Processing Units (CPU) with four of Samsung's own Mongoose cores (instead of the usual Cortex-A72) and four Cortex-A53. The Snapdragon 820 version has all custom cores by elegant Qualcomm - four Kryo cores split into two groups, 2x 2.15Giga Hertz (GHz) and 2x 1.6GHz.

This gives the Exynos-powered Note7 a slight edge in multi-core performance, but the Snapdragon version has a lead in single-core tests. The differences are small enough that you shouldn't fret over which Note7 version is available in your local store.

Going over to the graphics tests, the Galaxy Note7 is a hair ahead of the S7 edge (Exynos) in one test, a bit behind in the other so the results are inconclusive. Here, Snapdragon's Adreno 530 GPU edges out Exynos' Mali-T880 MP12.

We'll re-run the benchmarks when we acquire a hrecent of a retail unit, but we don't expect much to change.
