The Samsung Galaxy M series has been rumored for quite some time now, and as per reports, it was all set to target the entry level-mid range segment and replace the Samsung On series of mobile phones. There was absolute little to no evidence supporting the same, until today, when the Geekbench score has surfaced online.
As GSMArena reports, the Galaxy M2’s benchmark result has appeared on the Geekbench database. The phone apparently has a model name of SM-M205F, which hints towards the fact that it will be known as the ” Samsung Galaxy M2″. Coming to the technical aspects, the phone sports the Exynos 7885 along with 3gb of RAM and 32gb of Internal Storage (likely). The geekbench scores are 1319 and 4074 for the single core and multicore benchmarks respectively.
Considering the fact that this device is aimed at targetting the entry level-mid range segment, and it features a much better processor than the Samsung J series and the On series, this device might be a pretty good competitor for the price segment. The 7885 is a 14nm chip with two Cortex-A73 cores and six A53 cores, plus a Mali-G71 GPU. Comparing it to the other processors common in devices at the same price point, the Exynos 7885 is a clear winner. The 7885 has significantly better single core performance and almost similar multicore performance as compared to the Snapdragon 625, while it exceeds the Snapdragon 650 by a margin in both single core and multi-core performance.
While the Galaxy M2’s benchmarks look promising, the price point will be the deal breaker here. While the 7885 is indeed a decent mid-range processor, if the device is priced at the higher end of the mid-range segment, it might not prove to be a good buy for the users. Given that the benchmark scores have already surfaced, hopefully, it shouldn’t be long until we see an official announcement from Samsung about this device.
