Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge hits benchmarks again with confirmation of the chipset

Samsung Galaxy S6

The Samsung Galaxy S6 made its way to AnTuTu benchmarks some days ago sporting record benchmark scores, telling us that the device is going to be a beast in terms of performance. Its “Edge” variant (SM-G925F) has now made an appearance on Geekbench, again with record breaking scores and confirmation of the chipset on board.

It’s no secret that the Galaxy S6 is expected to feature the Exynos 7420 chipset with the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge, and that’s exactly what the benchmark listing suggests. According to the Geekbench revelation, the smartphone will also be running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box, which is currently the latest version of Android (after Android 5.1).

The smartphone managed to score 1,495 points in the single-core test and a seemingly remarkable 5,375 points in the multi core test. It is said that these scores could destroy even the strongest of competitors including some unlikely ones such as the Apple iPad Air 2.

As it stands now, Samsung wouldn’t be too worried about not going with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset as its homegrown Exynos 7420 SoC appears to be doing quite well on its own. However, it’s still too early to tell how this will reflect in real world usage, so we’ll reserve judgment when the smartphone goes official.
