Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 has been the talk of the town for sometime now and although there’s been no real evidence, we’ve heard some rumors and speculation of its purported specifications, but that all changed today as at last we’ve finally got our hands on something a bit more tangible.

According to the results of an AnTuTu benchmark test, the S6 is set to pack a 5.5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, an Exynos 7420 octa-core 64bit chipset, 3GB of RAM, a Mali-T760 GPU, a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and 32GB of internal storage.

The image above shows the handset running the latest developer build of Android 5.0 Lollipop. We expect the device will ship with the most recent build onboard skinned with the new version of Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface when it’s announced in Q1 of 2015.

Recent reports suggest that the device will incorporate many additional features, including fingerprint and iris recognition technology, touchless control functionality, IP67 dust and waterproof protection, Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and support for wireless charging.

    every other flagship android phone in 2015 will have these specs.. its all about experience though.. samsung will have to work on both the software & aesthetics to survive.

    5.5 inch display belongs to phablet category, REGULAR flagship phones should stay within 5inch display size to fit a one-handed frame. so if this is real, Note5 & beyond would sport 6inch plus display in the future? human hands are not getting bigger!
