Samsung Working on Galaxy S7 Premium Edition with 14 core GPU and 4K Display
A new report has surfaced, which claims that Samsung is planning to release the Galaxy S7 Premium Edition that will be exclusive to South Korea.
The information leaked on a Weibo page (via GforGames), according to which this super spec’d version of flagship from the South Korean phone maker is powered by another version of the Exynos 8890 SoC. The said chip comes with a 14 core Mali T880 GPU, and is scalable from one to sixteen cores.
As for markets other than South Korea, the flagship will reportedly be equipped with the Exynos 8890 featuring Mali-T880 with 12 cores. The U.S. and China are exception though, where the Snapdragon 820 SoC will be driving the handset.
The report further notes that this particular S7 model will feature a 4K display and a dual-lens camera module from Sony.
If earlier reports are to be believed, the Galaxy S7 will come with a USB Type-C port instead of a standard microUSB port, as well as allow users to expand its memory via an external microSD card.
