Many stories had been cooked up around the specs of upcoming Galaxy S6 and its edgy counterpart the Galaxy Edge. Most of the specs have leaked online one way or the another.
Anyways, while the wait continues till the official announcement, the Galaxy S6 (Edge) has already been spotted in benchmarking website AnTuTu with specs.
This is important because it finally confirms the fact that the Galaxy S6 will indeed take advantage of an octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset from Samsung's very own backyard. This is a piece of silicone built on a 14nm process, unlike Qualcomm's controversial Snapdragon 810 platform which uses a 20 nm node.
The Galaxy S6 (Edge) will be powered by an Exynos 7420 processor completed by an ARM Mali-T760 GPU and fitted with 3GB of RAM. It flaunts a 5.1-inch display (of the Super AMOLED variety probably) with an advanced resolution of 1440 x 2560 and 567ppi. You're also going to see 32GB of internal storage onboard, an advanced 20MP camera up in front and a 5MP one as a selfie snapper.
What's more interesting is that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge managed to score a whopping 60,978 points in AnTuTu, which is by far the highest we've ever seen around. Meizu's MX4 which got named the most powerful Android smartphone of 2014 managed to grab only 47,765 points.
As you can see, the difference is pretty outstanding. As, AnTuTu provides a break-down of test scores, we notice that compared to the Exynos 5433, the Exynos 7420 performs a lot better in 3D object visualization.
Going by the looks of it, the Samsung Galaxy S6 (Edge) is going to be quite a beast, something we are expecting from Samsung. Come March 1 and Samsung will finally reveal its long-awaited flagship at its Unpacked event.
