Specifications for the latest addition to the Galaxy Note family have reportedly been leaked to several benchmark testing sites — but some of the specs don’t line up with each other.
What appears to be a leaked image of Samsung’s new phablet appeared on AnTuTu, an Android benchmarking website. The leaked image was discovered by Steve Hemmerstoffer, a known phone spec leaker.
The leaked specs on AnTuTu show that the Note 7 will feature a Snapdragon 820, quad-core processor and 4 gigabytes of RAM. It will run Android 6.0.1, and will have 64 gigabytes of internal storage, according to Android Headlines.
But additional specs were leaked on a different benchmarking site: GeekBench. The specs on this site seem to show the Note 7 shipping with an Exynos, eight-core processor and 3 gigabytes of memory. Additionally, GeekBench’s specs show that their version of the Note 7 is running Android Nougat, according to CNET.
However, several tech news sites have suggested that AnTuTu’s specs are the more believable of the two. GeekBench’s leaked specs could be an early prototype, or even a lower specification model of the Note 7, according to TechRadar.
Additionally, the serial numbers for the specs on either site are slightly different. AnTuTu’s phone is labeled SM-N930F, while GeekBench seems to have tested a phone dubbed the SM-N930V, TechRadar reported.
Benchmarking is the process that phone manufacturers use to test their devices. Benchmarking services test the specifications with their software, and then post the results on their websites, according to CNET.
Whichever of the two leaked specifications turns out to be closer to the truth, the Note 7 is expected to feature details such as an iris scanner and a 4,000-milliamp-hour battery, Times of India reported.
The Galaxy Note 7 could be announced by Samsung on Aug. 2, according to a Tweet by infamous phone leaker Evan Blass.
