The Samsung Galaxy S6 AnTuTu benchmark result has somehow made its way to the Internet. From the leaked information, the S6 will indeed be powered by the company’s very own Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, and if the result isn’t manipulated in any way, it could be faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
The Exynos 7420 processor clocked at 2.1GHz managed to attain a very impressive score of 60,978, which, according to MyDrivers and GizmoChina, makes it faster than the Snapdragon 810 processor. If this is the case, Samsung’s decision to favour its own processor does make a lot of sense.
Other specifications were also revealed through the AnTuTu benchmark, including a 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 20MP rear and 5MP front cameras, and Android 5.0.2 out of the box. However, whether or not this is the standard variant of the S6 or the S6 Edge remains to be seen.
Interestingly, the Exynos 7420 is said to be built on a 14 nm node, which makes it the first mobile processor to be in such a size. For the sake of comparison, the Snapdragon 810 is built on a 20nm one.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 definitely looks promising based on these information, but until Samsung officially unveils the new flagship, nothing is set in stone. MWC 2015 will be an interesting event for the Korean giant.
