Earlier today, Samsung’s SM-925W8 handset popped up on AnTuTu benchmark. Everything points to the fact that this is the Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung’s upcoming device which sports curved display (probably on both sides) that has been mentioned many times before and that Samsung will probably launch on March 1st alongside the Galaxy S6. This handset showed its specifications on AnTuTu along with the impressive performance of its Exynos 7420 processor. The handset is back yet again, this time it showed its face on Geekbench, let’s check it out.
The Geekbench listing showed similarly impressive performance to AnTuTu, I’d say. According to this listing, the Exynos 7420-powered handset (in this case, the SM-925P model) scored 1,492 points in the single-core, and 5,077 points in the multi-core test. This beats the Snapdragon 805-powered Galaxy Note 4 handset by quite a margin, the Note 4 scored 1,054 in the single-core and 3,374 in the multi-core test. The single-core result of this handset is somewhat weaker than the one of the Nexus 9 for example, but the multi-core performance beats out basically everything. Alright, so, keep in mind that this is just a leaked benchmark, so basically take all this with a pinch of salt. This probably is the Galaxy S6 Edge, but we might be looking at the test unit here or something, so it’s better to wait for the real thing than bringing any conclusions to the table, and we all know that benchmarks aren’t exactly the best way to see how well the phone will perform.
That being said, the aforementioned AnTuTu benchmark did reveal partial specs of Samsung’s upcoming smartphone. According to the listing, this handset will feature a 5.1-inch QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The Exynos 7420 octa-core processor will power on this device along with Mali-T760 (probably MP8) GPU for graphics. 20 and 5-megapixel cameras will be located on the back and front of this device, respectively. Android 5.0.2 Lollipop was also listed, and Samsung will, of course, implement its TouchWiz UI on top of Google’s operating system. There you have it, Samsung will unveil their Galaxy S6 flagship on March 1st in Barcelona, as part of MWC, and the Galaxy S6 Edge will launch alongside Samsung’s newest flagship it seems. We’ll be at the scene, so stay tuned.
