Mobile phone analysts reported some time ago that Snapdragon 820 benchmark score hit 2300 in single-core performance, but the latest rumor in town now is that Samsung’s Galaxy S7 will exclusively be using the Snapdragon 820 which is actually a high frequency chip.

It is already known that when the Snapdragon 820 clocks at very top frequencies – heat concerns may arise, so Samsung engineers developed a heat pipe that would keep the mobile device cool and within normal temperatures.

To this extent, the internal source revealed that Samsung Galaxy S7’s Snapdragon hit a score of 2456 in single-core performance while it also scored 5423 in multi-core performance.

Although Qualcomm reported that this version of chip can clock about 2.2 Ghz, the Snapdragon 820 has been seen in Xiaomi Mi 5 among other lower frequency phones.

While the heat issue may be a primary concern to many phone manufacturers desirous of using the Snapdragon 810, the 820 version must not have the same heating problem or manufacturers may also take to their heels. Developers optimized the Snapdragon 820 over a period of time to not have this heat concern, and it is expected to perform beyond imaginations when phone manufacturers decide to start using it.

Another development however indicates that Samsung’s Galaxy S7 may not sport the Snapdragon 820 since some regions may obtain the device with the Exynos 8890 chip instead of Snapdragon.
