Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s forthcoming flagship smartphone Galaxy S6 is expected to arrive in the first half of 2015. Though we have seen a lot of rumors and concept renderings of the Galaxy S5 successor, little has been confirmed about its features, specs and design. Such details are unlikely to be confirmed until Samsung announces the phone early next year.
European version of Galaxy S6 spotted
However, the Galaxy S6 has reportedly been spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark. Today, Chinese website CNMO posted a screenshot, which shows the Galaxy S6 model SM-G925F in AnTuTu benchmark. Previously leaked list of the Korean company’s smartphone model numbers suggests that SM-G925F is the European version of Galaxy S6. There shouldn’t be much difference between the European and other versions of the device.
According to the screenshot, the Galaxy S6 will come with 3GB RAM, 5.5-inch Quad HD display with 1440 x 2560 resolution, a 20-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front snapper. The phone will be powered by 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and ARM Mali-T760 graphics processor. The benchmark also mentions Android 5.0 Lollipop and 32GB internal memory.
Galaxy S6 could be delayed
The Galaxy S6 is expected to have a unique design as Samsung is designing its from scratch under the Project Zero. It is likely to borrow some design elements such as metal casing from recently unveiled Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4. What’s more, recent reports suggest that Samsung will also launch an ‘Edge’ variant of the S6. The Galaxy S6 Edge will have a curved display like the Galaxy Note Edge.
The U.S. version of Samsung’s flagship smartphones come with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, as opposed to Exynos-based devices in other markets. However, a new report from Business Korea claims that the Galaxy S6 and other new phones that are expected to feature Snapdragon 810 might be delayed. Qualcomm’s latest and greatest 64-bit Snapdragon 810 reportedly suffers from overheating and a drop in speed. The company is still trying to resolve the issue.
