Galaxy S7 Premium Edition to Have 14 Core GPU and 4K Display?

A new rumor started circulating on Friday. Apparently a Samsung Galaxy S7 Premium Edition is planned by Samsung, and it will be offered only in South Korea. This high-spec’d version of the manufacturer’s flagship is rumored to feature a 4K display, and a dual-lens camera module made by Sony. The device will be powered by a different version of the Exynos 8890 chipset.

In those countries, the phone will be driven by the Snapdragon 820 SoC. The graphics processor on the Exynos 8890 is the Mali-T880 with 12 cores. There will be a second version of the Exynos 8890 for the Galaxy S7 Special Edition, which is supposed to come with a version of the Mali-T880 with 14 cores. ARM reported that the graphics processor is scalable from 1 to 16 cores, so it might be true.
