Dutch carrier puts the Samsung Galaxy S6 up for pre-order – confirms Exynos 7420

Dutch network operator Tele2 has put the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S6 up for pre-order (presumably by accident). Interested parties can get their hands on the 32 GB version of the smartphone by agreeing to a two year contract at €44 per month. What’s interesting about the listing is that it confirms Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor on board the Korean tech giant’s next flagship.

Tele2 uses a Samsung Galaxy A5 as a placeholder in the listing. The listing reveals that the S6 will sport a processor that comes with four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.3 GHz and four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 1.9 GHz. Currently, there is only once CPU has sports these cores. This is the Exynos 7420 made by Samsung. This gives credence to reports that claim that the Korean tech giant’s next flagship will sport the Exynos 740 and not Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810.

Additionally, the listing reveals the S6’s dimensions. According to the listing, the smartphone measures 143.3 x 70.8 x 6.9 mm and weighs in at 165 g.

Thanks to previous reports, we’ve learned that the S6 will sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS), a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood, 3 GB of RAM, and a 2,600 mAh battery. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. As for its UI, it is said to be the first device to have a 64-bit version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
