Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Sony Xperia Z4 benchmarked

Two of the most highly anticipated smartphones have been benchmarked. And if processing speed and zipping through screens is what floats your boat, it looks like you're in for a treat.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge notched up a record score on the AnTuTu benchmark test, while the Sony Xperia Z4 had all sorts of specs confirmed.

The S6 Edge hit 60,978, which is an all-time high-score for the benchmark suite, suggesting Samsung has heeded complaints that the Galaxy S5 was a somewhat disappointing update and has really beefed up the spec sheet this time around.

The test revealed the device uses the octa-core Exynos 7420, which is Samsung's custom-built chip set.

Also on the cards are a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1,440x2,560 pixels, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. Plus a 20-megapixel camera and 5-megapixel front-facer.

The Galaxy S6 is expected to come in as many as five different versions. It's not known whether the innards will vary, or if the differences are purely cosmetic.

The Xperia Z4 popped up on Geekbench. It looks to be running Android 5.0 Lollipop (no surprises there), with an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 1.55GHz, and 3GB of RAM.

Both handsets should debut at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the start of March. We'll be on hand to bring you all the news as it happens, so stay tuned for more.
