I have Samsung Galaxy S7 and i want to check if i have a Snapdragon or Exynos chipset. How to check this quickly?? I need this info because i plan to root my phone and it matters which exactly chipset the phone has.

I have tried to find this info inside the phone but no luck.

Do i need to install some app or i can get this info without additional software by reading it somewhere inside smartphone?

The U.S. variant of the mobile phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, while Samsung's own Exynos 8 processor powers the international iteration of the phone.

First you'll need to find your device's Model Number.

You can find this in Settings > About Device, under the field Model Number.

It may look something like: SM-G930F.

If your device is in a state where you cannot navigate to Settings > About Device, please refer to the bottom of my post for alternative methods to lookup your model number.


Once you've found your model number, you can look up its chipset in my source, or in the tables below:

If your device is in a state where you can't get as far as Settings > About Device, then you can resort instead to rebooting into recovery mode or into ODIN mode.

Recovery mode displays the model number SM-G930F like so:

Android Recovery
MMB29K.G930FXXU1BPHJ
samsung/heroltexx/herolte
6.0.1/MMB29K/G930FXXU1BPHJ
user/release-keys

And ODIN mode displays the model number SM-G930F like so:

ODIN MODE
Download speed: fast
Product name: SM-G930F
Current binary: Samsung official
System status: official
FRP lock: ON
Secure download: enabled
Warranty void: 0 (0x0000)
RP SWREV: B:1 K:0 S:0
