Does the Galaxy S7 run MediaTek chips?
According to Geekbench, the Galaxy S7 has two other variants using the MediaTek’s Helio X20 and X25 chips. The device appears on Geekbench code-named Samsung SM-G930W8, where SM-G930 is the common code name of the Galaxy S7. For each specific market, the device will have more representative symbols, such as the Canadian market will have the letter “W”. Besides Exynos 8890, information from Geekbench also shows that the Galaxy S7 will also run MediaTek’s Helio X20 and X25 chips. These are MediaTek’s new 10-core chips, and according to the manufacturer, it will be available in some markets in April. About the specs, the X20 is almost identical to the X5 except it has a little faster clock speed. The Galaxy S7 uses the Helio X20, which only supports 3 GB of RAM. It will work a bit slower than the Exynos 8890 version. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S7 variant uses the same Helio X25 as the Samsung chip (Exynos 8890). Samsung has yet to reveal details of plans to release two new variants of the Galaxy S7 with MediaTek chips. It is likely that this will be the version for emerging markets at cheaper rates than the original version. According to VnReview.
