    Don't know if this is just Verizon but I found the sticker while looking things over.
    I thought the Processor was Exynos for all the S6 varieties.

    They use Samsung's radios.
    I don't remember a qualcomm part in the S6 break down.

    Yeah I was wondering the same as well. They must be using a Qualcomm radio at least it in the Verizon version

    Maybe. Would be interesting if they added on a radio or replaced their own.

    It's possible they replaced only samsung modem with qualcomm chip. Exynos 7420 is just AP, not integrating modem into it like snapdragon.

    It appears there is a Qualcomm part in the Verizon & Sprint models, but its not the SoC, those will be Exynos for sure.

    Samsung pushes out Qualcomm for Galaxy S6 on AT&T's network | UTSanDiego.com

    “While we still expect the Verizon and Sprint Galaxy S6 versions to sport Qualcomm modems – both build on legacy CDMA networks – we believe this change signals Samsung’s clear intent to utilize propriety baseband whenever and wherever possible,” said Rolland in a research note.

    Given the legacy CDMA that those carriers need support for Samsung may not have that in their modem bag of tricks.

    The radio in the CDMA models is provided by Qualcomm, the GSM variants utilize Samsung's in house Shannon modem.
