Samsung Galaxy S6 SM G920F lands in India for testing


Last updated: December 19th, 2014 at 11:36 UTC+02:00

Thanks to import records, we have knowledge of a unit of the Galaxy S6 — or a variant thereof — arriving on Indian shores for testing. The entry clearly mentions that it’s ‘for R&D purpose’ and that it’s not a retail unit. The entry is dated 17th December, which is when the phone made its way into the country from South Korea. It is interesting to note that the device model reads ‘SM G920F’; the suffixed ‘F’ signifies it being a European variant. The entry also mentions, rather astonishingly, the import price to be 18,938 INR which is roughly US$300. We’re pretty certain that the phone will cost about double that much, if not higher, at launch.

We broke the news of the Galaxy S6 having a QHD (2560 x 1440p) Super AMOLED screen earlier, which will either be 5.5 inches or 5.2 inches across the diagonal. Besides having a super-high-res screen, the next Galaxy S series flagship will also flaunt a 64-bit Exynos 7 octa-core processor along with a Snapdragon 810 variant, which might be delayed due to Qualomm’s production issues. Like you would expect from a next-gen flagship, the Galaxy S6 will have 3GB of RAM along with 32GB of on-board storage, and a main camera with a 16-20 mega-pixel sensor. Lastly, it’ll run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, which isn’t much of a surprise considering it’ll launch only in March next year. Though there have been talks about a curved screen aka Edge variant of the S6, things are yet to materialize on that front.
