Samsung is expected to introduce a successor to its Galaxy S5
in the first half of 2015, and we learned not long ago that this should be called Galaxy S6
(that’s not exactly surprising, is it?). While we’re still many months away from the official announcement of the upcoming handset, the Galaxy S6 may have already showed up on AnTuTu - a website that provides one of the most popular benchmarking apps available on Android.
Chinese website CNMO today posted a screenshot which reveals the presence of a Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G925F in AnTuTu’s database.
According to a previously leaked list of model numbers
, the SM-G925F is the European version of the new Galaxy (which shouldn't differ too much from other versions).
the screenshot - seen on the right - provides accurate information, the Galaxy S6 will come with a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display, a 20 MP rear camera, and a 5 MP front-facing camera. Its processor should be a 64-bit, octa-core Exynos 7420 with an ARM Mali-T760 GPU. Android 5.0 Lollipop, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal memory are also mentioned. That’s pretty much in line with what was previously rumored
Design-wise, the Galaxy S6 should take a whole new direction - part of a project internally codenamed Project Zero
. The upcoming flagship might borrow some design elements from Samsung’s recent metal-made handsets, including the Galaxy Alpha
, Galaxy A5
, and Galaxy Note 4
(though this one is only partially made out of metal). Besides a regular Galaxy S6, we might also see a Galaxy S6 Edge
, which supposedly sports a curved display a la Galaxy Note Edge
Since the Galaxy S5 was announced in February, and released in April, we assume the Galaxy S6 will be introduced at about the same time next year. Well, we can hardly wait to see what Samsung has in store for us! Make sure to stick around for further leaked details, as there will definitely be more to come in the near future.
