The rumour mill has been in overdrive of late regarding the imminent release of Samsung’s much anticipated new flagship phone, the Galaxy S6.
The device, which now looks set to be launched at Mobile World Congress on March 2nd, will not only be the most powerful smartphone Samsung has ever released but it may also look noticeably different to any of the previous devices in the Galaxy S range.
Two of the biggest rumours to have circulated in the past 24 hours are regarding the Samsung Galaxy S6 specs.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung WILL drop the Qualcomm Chip from the S6 in favour of an Exynos chip, due to issues with the device overheating.
It had also earlier been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S6 would be waterproof, although this claim has been denied in the Korean press.
Meanwhile, BGR claims to have reliable information of the exact Samsung Galaxy S6 specs.
Quoting what BGR says is a “trusted source”, the Samsung Galaxy S6 specs are said to be as follows:
- 64-bit eight-core 14nm CPU which is 50% faster
- 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a 577ppi density, stunning outdoor visibility, super dim mode for late night.
- A huge 20 megapixel OIS camera sensor and a 5 megapixel f/1.8 front-facing camera with real-time HDR
- 32 / 64 / 128GB of storage
- 2550mAh battery
- Built-in wireless charging
- Four hours of usage on a 10 minute charge
- Quick connect charging
- Samsung Pay: works with 90% of existing magnetic stripe payment terminals, and NFC payment terminals
- Metal and glass body
- Gorilla Glass 4
- Cat 6 LTE
Crucially however, there seems to be no information on whether the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have 3GB or 4GB of RAM.
As for the rest of the specs, whilst very impressive, they do seem to be pretty much what we have come to expect for flagship smartphones in 2015.
Of course all this is just yet more rumours and you can expect even more of these ‘leaks’ to surface until the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6.
