Samsung is all set to announce its Galaxy S6 flagship phone at MWC 2015. We have seen numerous reports, leaks and rumors about the upcoming device till date and today, we have one more leak which shows off the true power of the Exynos 7420 that comes inside Samsung’s next flagship.
Galaxy S6 with the model number SM-G925W8 was spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark app recently and the device with the Exynos 7420 managed to score an amazing 60978 points. That’s greater than Snapdragon 810, overclocked MT6595 and any other eight-core processor from other companies.
We have been hearing rumors about Samsung shifting completely to its own Exynos chips for its flagship S6 and this could be the reason. The processor will come with Mali-T760 GPU which is quite fast. To be specific, it is said that the GPU will be Mali-T760MP8 instead of the T760MP6 found on the Exynos 5433 SoC.
Also, since with such tremendous power, a lot of heat could be generated, it is said that the Exynos 7420 will use the advanced 14nm process, which if true, will be the first such mobile SoC in the market.
Coming to the Galaxy S6 specs, the phone will come with a 5.1-inch 2K 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution display. This goes against the previous rumors which hinted at a 5.5-inch display. Moving on, inside, the device will have the new Exynos 7420 eight-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz along with 3GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage. The rear camera will be of 20.7MP while the front shooter will be of 5MP. The device unsurprisingly will run on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop version.
Latest reports indicate that Samsung will move away from the traditional plastic design to a metal body in the latest flagship. The phone is expected to come with other features too like fingerprint sensor, Samsung’s own payment system etc.
We are just a few days away from the official launch, so stay tuned for more updates.
