The long rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 7 made an appearance on a benchmarking site revealing key features of the upcoming flagship phablet.
The Samsung device (model number: SM-N930V) spotted on AnTuTu (via Times UK) shows the device running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, Adreno 530 graphics engine, 64GB inbuilt storage, 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front snapper.
Interestingly, the device has been tested with 4GB RAM and not 6GB as rumoured before. If the final product does end up with this feature, it will certainly upset Samsung phablet fans and this will also harm Samsung's reputation, considering the fact that the new device will be named Galaxy Note 7, instead of Note 6 as the successor of the Note 5.
However, we urge our readers not to jump the gun just yet, as the Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N930V) might be one of the many prototype models used by Samsung to test the performance.
Just a few days ago, another Galaxy Note 7 series device bearing model-number SM-N930F made a stop at Geekbench website. It had a 3GB RAM and Samsung's own Exynos series octa-core CPU.
It is believed that the final model will indeed boast 6GB RAM as it will get the Galaxy Note 7 on par with rivals such as OnePlus 3 and LeEco Max 2, among others.
