Samsung Galaxy S6 support pages spotted online
If everything goes as planned, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge should be unveiled next month, just in time for the Mobile World Congress that takes place in Barcelona. Support pages for both handsets mentioned above were spotted on Samsung's website, but they were promptly taken down. On the other hand, benchmark results of the Galaxy S6 Edge can be seen in the GeekBench database.
According to these test results, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge delivers an impressive speed gain when compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805-powered Galaxy Note 4. These are the results of the single and multi-core tests ran by Samsung's two high-end devices:
- Galaxy Note 4: 1,054 single-, 3,374 muli-core
- Galaxy S6 Edge (Exynos 7420): 1,492 single-, 5,077 multi-core
For now, the Galaxy S6 Edge is slower than Google's Nexus 9 or Apple's iPhone 6 Plus in the single-core test, but Samsung is working on optimizing the firmware for the upcoming flagships. Even in this early state of its software, the Galaxy S6 Edge managed to achieve the best multi-core score in its category.
