Alleged Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G925F) shows up on AnTuTu: 5.5-inch Quad HD display and Android Lollipop included

It looks like the Galaxy S6 is already out in the wild - being benchmarked on AnTuTu. Even so, Samsung will likely not announce it before February 2015...

The Exynos variant of the Note has the 5433 I think. And it's a 5.7-inch display instead of 5.5. I still dunno if I believe this or not though. It seems silly to make the S6 5.5 inches

Technically as i know, 5433 is same with 7420 with 64bit enabled.

From the 2nd last para, it's not really the same thing:-

"While the Exynos 5433 seems nothing more than a "brain-transplant" in terms of SoC design, the newer Exynos 7 chip is a genuinely new part. Over the last 3 weeks Samsung has been busy submitting patches to the Linux kernel mailing lists adding support for their new SoC lineup. The Exynos 7420 seems to be on track for Samsung's next flagship lineup, this time in full 64-bit AArch64 mode with Android L. The details of the chip are still sparse, but we'll be seeing the same A57/A53 CPU combination together with an Mali T760, powered by an LPDDR4-capable memory controller."

Whichever the case Samsung has no other better window for its aarch64 push with S6. That being said lol as I'm becoming more and more less emphatic towards flagship models or SoCs, hard to really get excited about this 7420 as long as Samsung maintain their non-open Exynos policy. Your Note 4's 7 Octa/5433 (same thing just renamed) shall be the acid test when they get their next L/5.0/LRX21x build out.

They should not increase the screen size anymore. For people who wants a large screen they have the Note series. So why make another popular series the same? 5.7inch for Note 4 and 5.5inch for S6 will be almost same, hardly any difference. They should stick to a max of 5.2inches. Dont hurt the note series mate! :/

That shouldn't be surprising. The Note 3 and S5 have very similar specs.

Mate cheap Chinese brands can't compete with Samsung, LG, HTC and Apple. Even those Chinese brands offer a phone for say $50, I still won't buy it.

So keep your crap with you mate and troll somewhere else.

They are already competing. Ever thought of Xiaomi beating LG,HTC in sales? Now next target is Apple and Samsung. 5 years before there were no chinese brands in top 10. Now half of the top 10 is chinese. See Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo(+Motorola) are 3 among the top 5. Even Motorola is Chinese now. And there are OnePlus, Meizu, OPPO, Gionee etc. soon to enter top 10 in sometime.

How can you discount the Chinese so easily?? Be logical not emotional!

'cept that it's 10x easier to buy Xioami, Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo than 1+ you should've mentioned that as well in this context.

Beauty of Android: Unlike Apple, Samsung HAS TO compete against the cheap Chinese ones.

I like Samsung phones but its true the Chinese brands are killing Samsung (and others) in China in terms of valume sales. They're making headway in other large asian markets as well. Eventually they'll probably try to make their way into western markets but they'll likely face a lot hurdles since they'll be open to patent suits from Samsung and Apple. Either way it means more competition and better prices/features for the consumer.

Specs wise Sammy is always ahead, the only thing is design if it's great then it'll be a killer.

Most of times we will not know the quality of components, eg, speaker, reception of WiFi, screen response. I believe iPhones have better screen response than the Note and Galaxy S I own.

It coyld have a spectacular specs with lower quality components. Thats why some phones sound better than another.

Sammy's overall quality is much better than the competition.

Yea at first it may seem, its not "the best", just to later find out what Samsung put's into their S and Note line is the best

If the s6 has a 5.5 inch screen they'd be in the territory of cannibalizing sales for the Note series. It's probably fake or one of the other million galaxies out there.
