Even with Qualcomm’s supremacy in the high-end processor market, the fact that Samsung, Huawei, and others have begun to drift away from the company clearly must strike a nerve in its bottom line. We’ve heard constant rumors about the Galaxy S7 featuring a variant sporting the Snapdragon 820, but given how early these rumors arrive, it’s hard to call these reliable. Today we did land some benchmarks on the subject, and the processor information is rather unique.

Some leaked benchmarks at Weibo show us that Samsung is testing a variant of the Galaxy S7 with a Snapdragon 820-B processor, which is reportedly more powerful than the Snapdragon 820-A that we all know. This new “B” chipset is reportedly 1.38x and 1.77x faster in single-threaded and floating point performance operations when compared to the “A” variant. It’s clear that Qualcomm is willing to go the extra mile to gain the attention of companies like Samsung, and that even includes building another variant of its own flagship product.

At this point we’re not sure if Qualcomm and Samsung will reach an agreement, but it would be great to see this progress.
