Various reports have claimed that Samsung is designing its next-gen top Android handset from scratch in an attempt to reinvent its flagship smartphone, as the previous Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4 failed to really impress buyers. A new report from Chinese publication cnmo.com suggests that the Galaxy S6 might have already been spotted in AnTuTu, with the benchmark app having possibly revealed the phone’s specs in the process.

According to a leaked screenshot, the Galaxy S6 has model number SM-G925F, and it supposedly packs a 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution, a 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor, an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
However, Samsung is far from actually announcing the handset and it’s not clear when Samsung plans to launch it in the first place. Even if the benchmark is accurate, things may very well change by the time Samsung unveils its next-gen Galaxy S flagship phone.
A recent report claimed that certain performance issues with the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor might delay the launch of several top Android devices, including the Galaxy S6. Samsung is expected to launch two Galaxy S6 versions when it comes to processors, one sporting an Exynos SoC and the other packing Qualcomm’s latest chip.
A screenshot showing the leaked AnTuTu benchmark showing the SM-G925F handset that’s believed to be the Galaxy S6 follows below.
