Possible Samsung Galaxy S6 Specs Leak
The two latest generations of flagship Samsung smartphones were quite successful in terms of sales, but many users openly criticized their build materials and design. Samsung has always used plastic as its build material of choice, whereas HTC switched its high end devices over to aluminum. Various reports on the Web claim that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 will be redesigned from scratch to keep the Korean OEM on top in terms of sales.
The Chinese portal cnmo.com suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S6 might have already been spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark. The numbers shown in the leaked screenshot show that the Samsung Galaxy S6 may contain a 5.6-inch display with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. And if the screenshot is correct, it appears that Samsung will make use of the 64-bit architecture. The S6 might ship with the 1.8 GHz octacore Exynos 7420 CPU. Korean devices could feature an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage. The S6 may have a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Let’s take a look at the screenie, shall we?
There have been reports that Qualcomm is having performance issues on the Snapdragon 810, which may delay the launch of several flagship devices–including the Qualcomm variant of Samsung Galaxy S6. It remains unknown when exactly we can expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be released. The most likely date, however, is early March during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
