Samsung Galaxy S6 benchmark more powerful than iPad Air 2

12 Feb

With its mobile business plummeting, Samsung places much of its hope on the next flagship model, the Galaxy S6. A chart by Geekbench, which provides benchmark results for electronics devices, showed that Galaxy S6’s octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset has way higher results than the A8X chipset in Apple’s iPad Air 2. It is safe to say Samsung is eager to win back some of its market share.

Exynos 7420 is an octa-core processor made with Samsung’s cutting-edge 14nm process. According to media reports, the chipset has 1,492 points in the single-core, and 5,077 points in the multi-core test. The results are reportedly way better than any other mobile on the market. A8X fared 4,532 points.

AnTuTu’s benchmark results suggested that Galaxy S6 will be the most powerful smartphone available. Other specs of the phone that have been revealed suggested the device will sport a 5.1-inch 2K display and a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Meanwhile, Samsung’s hope to appeal to Japanese consumers with curved screen did not go so well. According to Business Korea, the Galaxy Note Edge only sold tens of thousands of units since its launch. The report also said Samsung’s market share had dropped to 4 percent, or the sixth place in Japan.
