According to past reports, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will sport Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood. Now the Korean tech giant is teasing that app loading time will be a thing of the past with this new processor on board it next flagship.
Samsung teased this on its Exynos Twitter account. It tweets, “Waiting for an app to load is thing of the past with
#Exynos processors.” We’ve already seen the Exynos 7420 blow through the competition in various benchmark database sites. So this doesn’t surprise us.

As for the rest of the specs, previous reports have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 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. It will sport a metal frame with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 slapped on top of the front and back. This, however, comes at a price. Making its next flagship more premium will result in the omission of a microSD card slot, a removable rear cover, and a removable battery. Furthermore, it is said the the smartphones will lose its water-resistant properties.
Samsung is expected to lift the lid on its next flagship later today at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
