Samsung Galaxy Note 7 running Android 7.0 Nougat spotted


As you may already know, Samsung’s next generation Galaxy Note 7 is getting a lot of attention. After paying a visit to AnTuTu and Zauba, the Galaxy Note 7 running Android 7.0 Nougat was also spotted on Geekbench benchmark listing. Now before every one jumps the gun and starts spinning around this listing, let’s take a closer look at it.

The Geekbench listing of the Samsung phone carries the  model number – SM-N930F – which does make everyone believe that the listing is indeed about Galaxy Note 7. However, everything after that throws all speculations and rumours about Galaxy Note 7 out of the park.


While the listed SM-N930F does run Android 7.0 Nougat, the mention of Universal7420 motherboard, which corresponds to Exynos 7420 chipset, and the 3GB of RAM doesn’t add up to the previously leaked details.

Samsung is expected to introduce the Galaxy Note 7 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 series chipset for American markets and Exynos 8893 chipset for rest of the world. Also, the Galaxy Note 7 will pack 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

While we are not absolutely certain about the final specs of the Galaxy Note 7, the new Geekbench listing does seem more like a prank or an old prototype. We deem this update as yet another speculation and recommend you to take it with a grain of salt.
