Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Shatters Records On Antutu; Design Details Absent
With less than a month left until Samsung unveils the next series of devices in the Galaxy series, looks like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has finally made an appearance, deciding to break all records in its way. Today's news comes just in the wake of user manuals for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Users manuals for both the devices popped up at Samsung's Finnish website.
With Samsung looking to strengthen its in-house SoC manufacturing division, speculation persists as to what processor the upcoming Samsung launches at MWC this March will come featuring. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and its edged counterpart, the Galaxy S6 Edge will come with either Qualcomm's 20nm Snapdragon 810 or Samsung's successor to the Exynos 7410, the Exynos 7420.
Benchmarks have surfaced today showing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with the Exynos 7420 on board. The processor has also been spotted on the Galaxy S6 a while back. The Exynos 7420, with the Mali T420 on board has all the capabilities to give other manufacturers a serious run for their money. Other specifications listed for the Galaxy S6 Edge include a 5.1 inch screen, a 20 MP rear camera with 3 GB of RAM. Samsung should consider increasing the RAM size on its device, given that a significant number of Android devices are yet to be launched this year.
In addition to performance specifications, today's alleged Galaxy S6 scores on Antutu also end up showing significant performance enhancements for the Exynos 7420, when compared to the 7410, also found on the Galaxy Note 4. Lets take a look at these scores below.
The main out performer of today's scores is undoubtedly the Mali T760, which manages to take an impressive 5000 point lead for 3D scores. Performance scores for both the chipsets remain to be almost at par, with the 7420 managing to take a small lead in multi-task, integer and floating point scores. The Galaxy S6 Edge is turning out be an impressive device overall when it comes to performance. Lets hope Samsung chooses to make other changes on the device as well; the name Project Zero does suggest so.
