The scores of the benchmark testing came out with a value of 1409 for the single-core and 4882 for the multi-core testing. The tests seem to be produce unsatisfactory results when compared to the current Exynos 7420 chipset. For those who are wondering, the 7420 managed to have a score of approximately 5200 on a multi-core. However, GSMArena would like to note that the given notes from the testing was due to a low clock rate of 1.38GHz. The S7 is rumored to have a clock rate of 2.3GHz.
Apart from the early benchmark results, many are wondering when would the next high-end Galaxy handset be released?

Finally, one of the biggest factors that many are thinking about is the cost for getting the new Samsung Galaxy S7. Pricing will depend largely on the handset’s specs and features, and it is still unclear how the smartphone will cost as of the moment.
