Samsung Galaxy S6 specs hinted by benchmark leak

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is still a way off, but its spec sheet may already be here thanks to a sneak benchmark preview.

The leaked AnTuTu benchmark page, coming courtesy of Chinese website CNMO, shows off the purported innards of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone.

It’s tagged up under ‘SM-G925F’, a moniker we’ve already heard associated with the Samsung Galaxy S6 European version due to earlier list model number leaks.

So what do the Samsung Galaxy S6 specs look like? For starters, it’s tipped to pack an Exynos 7420 processor running eight cores with 64-bit architecture.

Samsung opting to use its own chipset is good news, as earlier today we heard phones looking to run Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 810 might see delayed release dates due to production set-backs.

The decision to use an Exynos chip could be a result of the Snapdragon issues, and it’s entirely possible a Snapdragon variant of the phone could also be in the works.

Form factor is hinted at by the display listing, which tips a 5.5-inch screen running at a beefy 1440 x 2560 resolution.

The benchmark also reveals a built-in storage capacity of 32GB, with 3GB of RAM also packed inside.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 camera is listed as 20-megapixel for the rear-facing shooter, while selfies look set to be captured by a 5-mexapixel snapper.

All this runs off Android 5.0 Lollipop – no surprise there, as the Samsung Galaxy S5 has already started seeing the Lollipop update in Europe just this week.

What else do we know about the Samsung Galaxy S6? It’s whispered that the device is being built under a ‘Project Zero’ codename, and could proffer design features borrowed from other Sammy handsets.

Amongst these aesthetic options are the Galaxy Alpha’s metal trim, and the Galaxy Note Edge’s oddball over-edge wrap-around display.

We’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date to fall some time between February and April next year.
