We’re talking about none other than the upcoming refurbished version of the Galaxy Note 7, which might have made a promising appearance on Geekbench, one of the larger benchmark databases. Depending on who you ask, the phone will be either called the Note 7R or the Note 7 FE (Fan Edition), but anyways, the important part here is that the upcoming safe handset is forming up to be a powerhouse that seems to have achieved some pretty high single- and multi-core scores.
From what we’re seeing, the octa-core Exynos 8890 chipset inside the refurbished Note 7 is performing pretty similarly to the Exynos 8895 and the Snapdragon 835 chipsets that power the Galaxy S8 and S8+. In our tests, the Galaxy S8 clocked in at 2006 points in the single-core test and 6708 points in the multi-core exercise.
The Note 7R is rumored to come sometime this July, boasting the same Note 7 design and hardware specs, save for a smaller, yet safer (or so they say) 3,200mAh battery at the rear. This means a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution, 64GB of native storage, IP68 certification, as well as a rear 12MP f/1.7 camera with OIS and phase-detection autofocus. One of the few things that will separate the refurbished from the original Note 7 is purportedly going to be a big letter R, printed on the lower-right side of its back.
As we know more, so will you.
