It has been said that there are several variants of Samsung’s upcoming flagship device, the Galaxy S6, which will run with the Exynos 7420 chipset underneath the hood. Well, what do we know of the Exynos 7420 chipset? This chipset has more or less gone through the wringer over at Geekbench, where the single-core score which was racked up touched the 1,520 figure, while the multi-core tally managed to hit 5,478. Of course, it would make sense if these test scores were garnered through a Samsung Galaxy S6 prototype instead of the market ready model that will still take quite some time before it arrives officially.
As for the clock speed, it was listed down at 1.5GHz, which is most probably the result of the slower Cortex A-53 in action. The big.LITTLE chip within would make use of the latter cores when it comes to slower and less intensive tasks, whereas the Cortex A-57 would take care of the the heavy lifting.
It seems as though the benchmark test did list down the Galaxy S6 prototype to carry 3GB RAM – which is 1GB short of the speculation that 4GB would accompany the handset right out of the box. Of course, do bear in mind that this is but a prototype, so nothing has been confirmed just yet until the real deal arrives.
