As from the data present in Geekbench 3.0 database, the device tested is not yet confirmed, but this prototype is code-named as 'SC7 Full Android on avl7420" which is clocked at 1.5GHz, but it's not clear that which Cortex the test results belongs to, is it the fastest cortex-A57 or the efficient cortex-A53.
From the benchmark chart of Android, Nexus 9 with Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC occupies the first place with a single-core test score of 1895 points. If the Exynos 7420 Chipset is used in the next flagship phone will make it to be the top Android smartphone in the list as the Nvidia's Tegra K1 is suitable only for the tablets as it consumes more power.
The other specifications from the tests reveal that, the device is equipped with 3GB RAM running on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Earlier rumors suggested that Galaxy S6 will sport a 5.2 inch qHD Super
AMOLED display with 2560 x 1400p resolution. It features a 20MP camera on the rear side and a 5MP front-facing camera. We hope to see the Galaxy S5 successor post-MWC 2015.
