Samsung Exynos 8 Octa 8890 is its most powerful processor ever
However, the latest AnTuTu scores of Samsung's upcoming flagship suggests that it could turn out to be the best-performing phone of the year thanks to its new Exynos 8890 chip which was unveiled by Samsung in November.
“The Exynos 8890, Samsung's next high-powered chipset, set a new record score on the AnTuTu benchmark site. The tally of 103,692 easily topped the 79,000 recently scored by the Kirin 950 SoC, Huawei's new top-of-the-line chip (a more recent run through of the Mate 8 produced a score above 94K),” said Phone Arena.

Recent rumours also indicate that the Galaxy S7 will sport a 5.1-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels.
