The benchmark scores are in for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge ahead of its official debut at the Unpacked event on March the 1st, a day before the Mobile World Congress starts in Barcelona. And the overall score is very impressive.
The total sum for the octa-core beast which is to be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 7420 processor sets a record high score of 609078. This beats any mobile chipset on the market with outstanding features including runtime which scores 4172, RAM Speed of 3809 and 3D which excels over the previous Exynos 5433 with a score of 20725.
Samsung decided to pass up the intended Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 after manufacture tests in Korea found it to cause the new Galaxy S6 model to overheat when used inside the device’s metal shell. The AnTuTu overall score for the Snapdragon 810 was 52,275 so the change up is definitely an improvement on what could have been.
The test infographics also unofficially confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will come equipped with Android 5.0.2 as operating system, a 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution display, generous 3GB of RAM and 5-megapixel/20-megapixel front/rear cameras.
