GeekBench reveals the true power of Exynos 7420 inside Galaxy S6 Edge

GeekBench reveals the true power of Exynos 7420 inside Galaxy S6 EdgeSamsung Galaxy S6 is one of the most anticipated phones of 2015. We are already seeing numerous leaks, benchmark entries and images of the upcoming Samsung flagship. This information has given us an idea about the new Samsung device which is expected to be much better than any other Galaxy device till date.

A recent entry in the GeekBench app revealed a powerful Galaxy S6 Edge with the model number RM925. The entry shows that the Samsung Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core SoC will probably be the best chip in the market till date for mobile devices. In the multi-core test on GeekBench, the Exynos 7420 powered Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge managed to score over 5000 points, which is much better than any other device on the app till date. The current leader, the iPad Air 2 only managed a score of 4532 points, so S6 edge is over 500 points above the Apple device. Even in the single core test, the octa-core Samsung SoC managed to impress everyone by scoring over 1492 points. While this isn’t the best result that we have seen lately, it’s still impressive for an octa-core SoC to score such a high figure. Only the dual-core super powerful Tegra K1 powered Nexus 9 as well as the two Apple iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus models score better than this score.

Both the multi-core and single-core scores are impressive and makes the upcoming s6 Edge the best smartphone in the market till date. It is also being reported that Samsung may change its TouchWiz UI completely to make it smoother and faster than before. We have seen a number of Samsung users complain that the UI is laggy, which is probably why the company is now focusing on providing the best software experience too. In this regard, Samsung is said to move its apps as a separate download, reducing the bloatware on the device. Of course, the hardware based apps like Smart Stay may be retained, however other non-essentials could be offered as an additional download, reducing the overall size as well as the load on the Samsung’s new interface.

Design wise, the phone will reportedly come with a premium metal chassis and body. The company is shifting from its boring all plastic design to a metal body this year. Expect a lot of new features on the upcoming device. Samsung will unveil the new Galaxy S6 flagship at MWC 2015, which is just a few weeks away.
