Samsung Galaxy S6 specs leaked – including own CPU
If you’re not in the HTC M9 queue but loving Team Android then you’re probably waiting for news of Samsung’s next Galaxy S handset – the S6.
Samsung is expected to unveil its new flagship Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S6, next month at Mobile World Congress so, naturally, there’s plenty of whispers.
Word on the street is the S6 will be packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor but BGR has not only de-bunked this rumour but also revealed a whole load of other interesting bits courtesy of their “trusted source”.
This nameless source claims that the CPU will be an in-house number and carry Samsung’s branding, at least on the handset seen. That chip happens to be a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 14nm processor that is 50% than the one in the S5. Of course, Samsung uses Exynos processors regularly in its Korean models, which this might have been taken from, so that’s not confirmation that no handsets will have Qualcomm processors, but the site does suggest so.
The screen is said to be a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a 577ppi density, with “stunning outdoor visibility” and a super dim mode for when you’re going through your socials when in bed with the light off.
You will have a choice between 32, 64 and 128GB of on board storage and the battery is 2,550mAh. The rear camera has a 20-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation, while the front facing cam is 5-megapixel (f/1.8). Needless to say that it will be a 4G (Cat 6 LTE) handset.
I like the that, according to the loose lipped insider, the new Samsung will have wireless charging built in which will also give up to four hours of usage for just 10 minutes of charge time, as well as quick connect charging.
I know many Sammy owners will be please to read that the S6 promises to be constructed from metal and glass, not plastic, and will have a Gorilla Glass 4 front.
This all lines up for an interesting Samsung Unpacked event at Mobile World Congress at the beginning of March.
