The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been codenamed ‘Jungfrau’ and is now on its testing phase. Samsung is said to be trying out both Qualcomm Snapdragon and its own Exynos chipset. The current testing is apparently being made in relation to the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest mobile operating system from Google.
The development of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is now quicker because the company has switched to the widely-used methodology called ‘Agile.’
Apparently, a leaked document indicated such testing but it only involves the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset guised through a codename. However, there is another chip in codename too in the same document and many believe that it is an Exynos chip.
The most recent flagship smartphones from the Korean tech giant mostly had the Exynos chipset on it for processors so it is quite a surprise why the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor made it to the picture. However, the Snapdragon 820 chipset is reportedly one of the most, if not the most powerful processors in the market today.
Since Samsung is hyping the Galaxy S7 as better than the Galaxy S6 and all the other flagships that came out this year and will come out in the next few months, having the most powerful processor available is the way to go.
