Samsung’s Unpacked event is getting closer by the day. This Korean tech giant will unveil their long-awaited Galaxy S6 flagship on March 1st in Barcelona as part of MWC (Mobile World Congress). We’ve seen many leaks, rumors, reports and teasers on that device. The interesting thing here though, is that many reports have been claiming that Samsung will also unveil the second device at that event, and some of the company’s teasers even suggested so. That handset will allegedly be named the Galaxy S6 Edge and will sport a curved screen on both its left and right sides. It remains to be seen how legit that info is though, but we’ll find out soon enough.
That being said, the alleged Galaxy S6 Edge already appeared in AnTuTu and Geekbench benchmarks and revealed its specs, and, of course, benchmarks numbers. The device popped up on Geekbench on February 10 and scored 1,492 in single-core, and 5,077 in multi-core benchmarks. Well, the device surfaced on Geekbench once again today, and showed an even better result this time. The single-core score is 1,495, and the multi-core results comes around to 5,375. This might suggest that the device is getting more polished before the unveiling on March 1st. According to basically every information we have thus far, this device will be powered by the Exynos 7420, Samsung’s very own 64-bit octa-core processor. This chip is probably the main reason why the benchmarks are through the roof, this is a 14nm chip and will be first of the kind in the market to date (at least in the mobile world).
Regarding the rest of its specs, according to AnTuTu, the Galaxy S6 Edge will feature a 5.1-inch QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display, 3GB of DDR4 RAM and will come with Android 5.0.2 pre-installed with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top of Google’s OS. 20 and 5-megapixel snappers will ship with this device, on its back and front, respectively. Mali-T760 (MP8) GPU is going to be in charge of graphics here, and the device will come in various internal storage variations. Today’s Geekbench listing also confirmed part of these specs, like the Android version, processor and the amount of RAM that will ship with the device.
