We’re likely still several months out from the official debut of the Samsung Galaxy S6, but as has become common in the mobile industry, details on the upcoming flagship have already started to leak.
According to a report from SamMobile, Samsung’s codename for the Galaxy S6 is “Project Zero.” That codename is interesting because in the past, Samsung has used monikers like “Project J” (Galaxy S 4) and “Project K” (Galaxy S5) for its devices in the past. It’s said that Samsung chose the Project Zero codename because the Galaxy S6 is going to be an all-new phone that’s developed “from scratch.”
Unsurprisingly, it’s said that Samsung is planning to include several high-end specs with the Galaxy S6. The spec list will reportedly include a 2560x1440 display of an unknown size, 16-megapixel or 20-megapixel camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB/64GB/128GB storage options, and two versions that’ll include a 64-bit Exynos 7420 or Snapdragon 810 processor.
It’s worth noting that none of this is official until Samsung says it is. That said, many of these upgrades sound pretty reasonable for the Galaxy S6, especially since the Galaxy Note 4 is available now with features like a 2560x1440 display and 16-megapixel camera. The most interesting part of today’s leak is the suggestion that Samsung is creating the Galaxy S6 from scratch. Will it not feature a Note 4-like design like many folks have been expecting? We’ll have to wait and see.
