The Galaxy S5 didn’t really do all that well and Samsung is designing the Galaxy S6 from the ground up in order to deliver a fresh design to customers. With less than two months to go for the phone to get officially launched, there have been many rumors doing the rounds and we’re adding a new one to the roster.
The new leak comes via BGR which claims to have received images of the Samsung Galaxy S6 from its trusted source, but was not given the permission to post them online. On the upside, the publication did reveal what it claims to be the official specs of the flagship smartphone. What it says is that the handset will be of 5.1 inches which is the same size as the current one.
And the panel used here will be a Quad HD Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 577ppi. This is very much possible as there’s already a version of the Galaxy S5 with a 2K display, but it’s pointless to have such high-resolution in a small design as the benefits of the extra pixels won’t be visible. Then there’s the unnecessary high power consumption for feeding the QHD panel.
The website mentions that Samsung will use a 14nm 64-bit octa core processor. This will of course, not be the Snapdragon 810 as it’s built using the 20nm process and we could see one of the company’s own chips being used here or probably the Intel Cherry Trail SOCs, but they’re far from reaching the market and don’t come in an octa core configuration.
Here’s a deeper look into the alleged Samsung Galaxy S6 specs:
– 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display w/ Gorilla Glass 4
– Octa core 64-bit SOC based on 14nm process
– 32GB, 64GB, 128GB internal storage options
– 5MP/1.8MP front camera, 20MP rear OIS shooter
– 2550mAh battery w/ wireless charging
– Cat. 6 LTE support
– Metal and glass construction
The Samsung Galaxy S6 will most likely make its debut at the MWC 2015 expo which is scheduled to commence at the start of March.
