The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to be unveiled next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain, and the Korean company has already sent out press invitations for their own event happening there, teasing “what’s next”. What’s next is almost surely going to be the Samsung Galaxy S6 (and the company’s variations of it), and now we have evidence that the phone recently went through AnTuTu—and the benchmark that resulted shows previously rumored specs and some surprisingly good test results across the board.

The phone in question is the Samsung SM-G925W8, which is widely accepted as likely being the company’s “Edge” variant of the device. The benchmark shows that the device is running the latest version of Android, 5.0.2 Lollipop, and sports a 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution display, a 5-megapixel front camera, a 20-megapixel rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of flash storage, and an ARM Mali-T760 GPU. As for the device’s processor, the S6 Edge looks like it will indeed be ditching Qualcomm as was previously rumored and sports Samsung’s own Exynos 7420.
The Exynos 7420 is definitely the most interesting information we’re gathering from these leaks. Here’s a quick image comparing the Exynos 7420, which just got benchmarked as part of the Galaxy S6, to the Exynos 5433, the processor included in Samsung’s non-Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy Note 4:
As you can see, this is a moderate and respectable improvement across the board. Most notably, however, is that the Exynos 7420 seems to set a new record in the area of 3D performance, passing up the 5433 by about 5,000 points. This is about 10,000 more points than the Tegra K1, which we saw benchmark results for earlier this year.
