Could the Galaxy S6 have just shown up in a benchmark?
We’re almost done with 2014. That means CES 2015 is mere weeks away, and that we’ll be seeing the major flagships of the year released just months from now. And if we’re just months away, it’s time for all the excitement to begin, as we slowly start hearing leaks of the device up until the announcement next year. We have a pretty big tidbit to share today, a preliminary Samsung Galaxy S6 benchmark straight out of AnTuTu through a screenshot posted by CNMO.
There’s no way for us to be entirely sure that this is the Galaxy S6 (and even if it is, it’s highly unlikely to be a final production model given the fact that we have plenty of time to go until the announcement), but what we do know is that this is a Samsung phone flying under the model number SM-G925F. This model number has previously been tied to a European GS6 variant.
As expected from Samsung, the Galaxy S6 will feature incredibly powerful specifications if AnTuTu is correct here. A Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor – unannounced, by the way – with clock speeds up to 1.8 GHz is present (though we should note that American variants will probably feature a Snapdragon chip). There’s a 5.5-inch Quad HD display as well, plus a 5MP front-facing camera and a 20MP rear shooter. Finally, there will be 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM storage available.
It’s important to note that the S6 will also allegedly offer significant advantages over the S5 in design as well, as Samsung is supposedly heading in a more premium design direction not too far from the Galaxy Note 4 for the device.
We’ll definitely be learning more soon, so keep it locked for the latest on Samsung’s 2015 flagship smartphone.
