Benchmarks are usually a very good indicator of how well a device can perform. Today we’re coming across a new leak which shows us an unannounced Samsung device (SM-G8508S) with a beastly benchmark score of 95,972 on AnTuTu, suggesting that it’s packing a very powerful chipset underneath. To put this in perspective, Samsung’s recent flagships, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge scored in the vicinity of 70,000 and thereabouts.
While there’s no word on what device this could be, it’s very likely that Samsung is testing a very early prototype of the Galaxy S7 which is scheduled for an early 2016 unveiling. The chipset on board could in all likelihood be a new Eyxnos unit that Samsung is working on and probably not a Qualcomm chip, given Samsung’s insistence on using its own chipsets.
It’s quite clear that this is a flagship level offering and whatever the company decides to call it, there’s no doubt that it will be a monster in terms of hardware specifications. This can’t be the Galaxy Note 5 or the Galaxy S6 edge+ as the two devices have different model numbers and aren’t expected to feature such a major change in chipset department. But in any case, we’ll reserve judgment for until this Thursday.
