Samsung is currently engaged in what is dubbed Project Zero for its Galaxy S line of flagship devices. And now some Samsung Galaxy S6 details are with us, some leaked details.
You can read about that initiative here.
Supposedly, the upcoming Galaxy S6 marks a fresh start for the series — a series that has become rather predictable, stable and completely devoid of any sort of innovation. Well, at least the last couple of models, in the lineup.
Still, while it’s too early to make concrete assumptions regarding what the future holds, some details regarding Project Zero have popped up.
Some preliminary information, if you will, straight from the source.
The display on the Samsung Galaxy S6, it is said, would be a Quad HD screen, running at a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440. That should make it one of the very best available on the market, right up there at the top.
Presumably, the screen stays smaller than 5.5 inches, as going past this dimension will make it compete with the Note family from Samsung.
In terms of processing hardware, the upcoming flagship reportedly houses a new 64-bit Exynos 7420 chipset that packs four Cortex-A53 cores as well as four Cortex-A57 ones. Samsung also plans to release a version that uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset.
Memory is expected to be in the 3GB range, while the company will launch the Galaxy S6 in three storage configurations, namely 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of internal storage.
The company is said to be deciding between a 16 megapixel camera and a 20 megapixel one, but the imaging sensor that is going to be included is the same IMX240 that the Galaxy Note 4 comes with.
We’ll know the exact specifications closer to release.
But while the above listed ones do seem a tad predictable, the still make for a very powerful device. And Samsung is still in the development phase right now, so the circuitry of the Galaxy S6 could very well change before the device is unveiled, probably next year.
