A few weeks back it was reported that Samsung is testing the Galaxy S7 with both its in-house Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets. An alleged leaked internal Samsung document has now revealed that the Galaxy S7 could be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 820 SoC.
The document has been posted by an industry insider on China’s Weibo. It basically is a document showing Samsung’s Android M update schedule. One of the devices listed in the document is “Jungfrau” aka the Galaxy S7. The device is listed to be using the MSM8996 board, which is the codename for the Snapdragon 820 chipset.
As revealed a few days back, Samsung has allegedly managed to shorten the Galaxy S7 development with the help of a modular process. While we cannot be sure just yet, it could be possible that Samsung might announce the Galaxy S7 earlier than usual, similar to what it is doing with the Galaxy Note 5.
