It looks like Samsung may start from scratch with the Galaxy S6. SamMobile states that the hardware manufacturer is in early stages of development of the handset, which is allegedly codenamed Project Zero internally. Citing anonymous sources, the website also revealed preliminary specs of the handset, which include a QHD display, 16 or 20 MP camera, 64-bit CPU and more.
Although there wasn't any mention of a screen size, SamMobile mentions that the Galaxy S5 would feature a QHD display, which is unsurprising considering the trend in screen resolution we've been witnessing over the last few years. Samsung is said to be debating whether to use the same 16 MP sensor with OIS that was introduced with the Galaxy Note 4, or shift to a 20 MP sensor. At the front, hit looks like the vendor has locked in on a 5 MP camera.
As for the innards, the Galaxy S6 is reported to feature the 64-bit Exynos 7420 SoC Samsung launched last month. Featuring four Cortex A57 cores and four Cortex A53 cores, the SoC is said to include Samsung's first in-house modem, the Exynos Modem 333, which offers LTE connectivity. The manufacturer will still offer a Qualcomm version, which is said to feature the Snapdragon 810.
The internal storage gets a mention as well, with Samsung allegedly looking to offer the device in 32/64/128 GB variants. In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy S6 is said to include a Broadcom BCM4773 chip that integrates GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity on a single chip, which serves to decrease battery drain.
As is always with unconfirmed rumors, we advise you take the news with the obligatory grain of salt. Seeing as how there's a lot of time before the Galaxy S6 gets any sort of official announcement, there is the very real possibility that the hardware details mentioned above may turn out to be entirely different from what is actually included inside the device. That being said, what would you guys like to see in the Galaxy S6?
