Last week we reported that Samsung is planning on totally changing its smartphone strategy, and this starts with them code-naming the Galaxy S6 “Project Zero“, allegedly because they’re starting from scratch. Well, SamMobile has some details from their “insiders” detailing some specs from the Galaxy S6.
The display on the Galaxy S6 will have a QHD (2560×1440) resolution, with an undetermined screen size. The camera sensor will be the same found in the Galaxy Note 4, though they’re still deciding between 16 MP and 20 MP, with the front camera 5 MP. It will come with 32, 64, and 128 GB variations.
The Galaxy S6 will be powered by the new Exynos 7420, which is a 64-bit chip with four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores. Evidently this chip will also have an in-house LTE modem as opposed to the modem from Intel currently powering a majority of Samsung’s devices. It will also have a Qualcomm variant, utilizing the Snapdragon 810. SamMobile guesses the Galaxy S6 will have 3 GB of RAM.
Take all of this information with a grain of salt, as any and all of this could change at any moment considering they’re starting over and are still in development.
Personally, while all of these specs sound good, I’ll be looking more towards the design and software that come on the device to see what changes Samsung has brought to its flagship to separate it from the rest of its line-up. It’d also be really nice if they were more communicative of their upgrade schedule, and took an effort to provide a timeline as HTC has with its HTC Advantage promise.
What do you think, do these specs sound good to you? What would you like to see from the supposedly new direction Samsung is taking?
