Samsung launched the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone in India last month starting at Rs. 58,900. It went on sale today, and we unboxed it too earlier today. Now let us check out the benchmarks of the smartphone. The Galaxy S6 Edge is powered by a Octa-Core 14 nm Exynos 7420 SoC which has four ARM Cortex A57 CPUs clocked at 2.1 GHz and four ARM Cortex A53 CPUs clocked at 1.5GHz. It has 772 MHz Mali T760 MP8 GPU and 3GB RAM LPDDR4 RAM. The smartphone has a 5.1-inch Quad HD (2560×1440 pixels) Super AMOLED display and runs on Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop)
It scored 36199 points and tops the Quadrant Benchmark, better than all the other Android smartphones.

We will be testing out some games on the smartphone to test out the gaming performance. Keep an eye on our YouTube Channel for that.
Update: We ran the tests again and found scores in GPU benchmarks were higher. The graphs have been updated accordingly.
