Samsung Galaxy S6 allegedly appears on AnTuTu with a 5.5″ QHD display, Lollipop

There have been innumerable rumours around the next Samsung flagship. Natural logic says it’ll be the Galaxy S6, unless Samsung decides to start an all new line of high-end phones, which we think isn’t very likely. Nonetheless, a device believed to be the Galaxy S6 (a European variant thereof — the SM-G925F) allegedly made an appearance on the database of popular benchmarking application, AnTuTu. That it’ll pack top-end specs was no doubt; the alleged AnTuTu listing only goes to reaffirm the belief.

If the screenshot below is authentic, the Galaxy S6 will come with a rather large 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440p display, a 64-bit, octa-core Exynos (the 7420) SoC, 3GB of RAM and a rather powerful set of cameras in a 20 mega-pixel rear and a 5 mega-pixel front (specs we’ve already exclusively revealed before.) Various storage variants are expected to be made available at launch, but from the screenshot it appears as though 32GB will be one among them. Lastly, the phone is also listed with Android v5.0 Lollipop, so Samsung has all you software junkies covered as well.

5.5-inch is a rather large screen size for a smartphone series; in fact, the second iteration of the Galaxy Note series had a screen that large. Therefore, we reckon you take this with a pinch of salt — or any other spice of your choice, for there’s not much that can be done to ascertain the authenticity of the claim. The phone is expected to launch early next year (despite the expected delays) along with an Edge variant, so there isn’t a lot of waiting you have to do anyway.

What’s the problem with a 5’5 screen, we’re in an era that’s all about big screens and high pixel resolution, besides we don’t know for sure if that’s the final product, if it is I find it awesome, it has incredible pixel resolution so a 5’5 isn’t that bad, it would be cool to make a smaller phone but c’mon 5’5 is awesome!!

5.5″ big size. GS5 size is best size.

Actually, 5.5 would be a perfect screen size. All they need to do is narrow the bezel slightly.

My hope is that they actually devote time and energy into making it a true flagship device, not the half-assed effort that went into the GS4 and GS5. Even better if they went with a stock interface with the useful bits of Touchwiz and none of the crap.

Galaxy s 6 love the idea of a bigger screen 5.5 with a thin housing is perfect. touch whiz is still terrible to the point i always install Google home screen , and the audio quality of the phone S5 in general is poor they should follow HTC and improve the sound possessor i use a Philips full sound mp3 player which is one of the best sounding MP3 players to date if you use the sh81000 ear phones when i plug them into a galaxy phone the sound is low and poor!!! the phone needs stereo speakers on the… Read more »

Agree with you. Except I wouldn’t call touchwiz terrible. Google gets a free pass and I find Vanilla Android offputting and boring. Google now is the biggest battery killer I’ve ever seen. I would like to see Touchwiz as you said, retaining the features and scrapping the rest.

But the biggest problem in the states is the vendors, such as AT&T and Sprint, etc who put boatloads of bloat on phones that nobody will ever want or need. Samsung have the clout to stop this if they put their foot down.

Could be that it’s going to be 5.5 inches total but could be curved on both sides so the entire body could encompass the 5.5 inches and it would still be comfortable in hand and the overall form factor not any bigger than the S5 really. The “project zero” seems like this would tie in with something like this with no side bezel perhaps?

Almost no bezel?

Could be an early prototype ‘S6’ model or just one of the S6 variants with a larger screen display?

Wonder if Samsung is still using it’s in-house ‘ISOCELL’ image sensor for the 20mp rear cam or the 5mp front cam?

Waterproof this time? IP68?

How is 5.5″ too big?? the LG G3 has a 5.5″ QHD screen and thats pretty much the same size as the S5 or HTC one.

I agree. 5,5inch is too big. I’d rather buy Note if I wanted a phablet.

They can fit a 5.5 inch screen in the same body as the s5. For example the lg g3 is a tad taller than the s5 and has a 5.5 inch screen.
