A few days back, we saw Galaxy S7 series with Snapdragon 820 processor getting benchmarked at Geekbench website. Now, performance scores of another Galaxy S7 variant featuring different chipset have been spotted on the same site.

Samsung device (code-name: SM-G930A), understood to be the Galaxy S7 (with Exynos 8890), scores an impressive single-core 2282 points, 919 more than Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) with Snapdragon. In terms of multi-core tests, the former variant scored 4951, whereas the latter scored a tad more (4979).

Going by the leaked Geekbench scores (1, 2), it looks like both the Galaxy S7 series can be expected to perform almost equal despite featuring different chipsets. It is learnt that the devices tested on Geekbench 3 site are prototypes and Samsung is expected to make some changes to boost performance levels of both the phones.

In a related development, Samsung is planning to release Galaxy S7 series in Europe in the second week of March.

Popular gadget spy Shai Mizrachi has revealed, citing reliable sources, that the Samsung's new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will hit stores in Europe on 11 March. There is no proof to validate his claims, but going by his previous track record of predicting devices, we believe this to be a real deal.

Even US and Chinese markets are also slated to get Galaxy S7 series on the same aforementioned date, reported SamMobile
