Chinese-speaking MyDrivers has spotted Samsung-made SM-G925W8 (believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, edged version of the Samsung Galaxy S6) on the AnTuTu benchmark site. If you’re think this is just another day wherein specs are revealed, think again. Not only are the smartphone’s specs revealed, the listing also shows that the device has broken every record when it comes to performance.
Let’s start with the specs. According to the listing, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge sports a 5.1-inch screen (most probably a Super AMOLED) with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) making its pixel density 576 ppi, a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, and 3 GB of RAM, which we have known thanks to past rumours. It also reveals that the device benchmarked sports Samsung’s Exynos 7420, which is made under the Korean tech giant’s 14 nm process as opposed to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 made under the chip maker’s 20 nm processes. It’s GPU is an ARM Mali-T760 GPU.
Now let’s get to how the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge performed. It scored a record-breaking 60,978, which is the highest we’ve ever seen. The break-down of the score shows that the Exynos 7420, compared to the Exynos 5433, excels in 3D objects visualisation. This is indeed great news, since that puts a tremendous strain on the CPU and GPU, especially with screens with high pixel densities.
Do find these results impressive? Can’t wait for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to make its debut? We know we are. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait very long to finally see the device in action, as Samsung will be lifting the lid on its next flagship on the 1st of March at MWC 2015.
