Just yesterday we picked up on a report which claimed to describe how Samsung is approaching the development of its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6. Apparently the company is at the drawing board with a completely new vision for this smartphone as it wants to void a repeat of the seemingly unimpressive market performance of both Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5. A follow-up to that report brings us purported Galaxy S6 specifications.
Granted, it is still a bit too early to be talking about the next flagship’s specifications. Nothing is set in stone at this point and Samsung has ample time on its hands to make changes, but at least we’ll get an idea of what to expect from the Galaxy S6.
According to Sammobile’s “insiders,” the Galaxy S6 is going to have a Quad HD display of unknown size with 2,560×1,440 pixel resolution. Samsung may retain the IMX240 camera sensor found on the Galaxy Note 4 but it may range between 16 megapixel or 20 megapixel.
The company will reportedly focus on improving low-light performance even if it opts for 16 megapixel. Front camera is expected to be bumped up to 5 megapixels. Available storage options may include 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants.
As far as the processor is concerned the insiders suggest it will be a new Exynos 7420 64-bit chip with four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores. It may be coupled with a LTE modem that Samsung has developed in-house. The Snapdragon variant may be powered by the Snapdragon 810 and both variants are expected to stick with 3GB of RAM.
The report does not reveal if Samsung is going to use different materials to build the Galaxy S6. There is chatter once more of a metal build, given that Samsung has been experimenting with it lately, but there’s no confirmation on that as yet.
