Samsung will be looking to improve the camera and bump up the specifications to bring its new Galaxy S6 in line with the competition. The company on Friday has confirmed the shape of the Galaxy S6 camera to build hype around its next-generation flagship phone.
A new video released by the tech giant from South Korea reveals the outline of a squared-off camera housing, making the camera as the main selling point of the Galaxy S6. The sketch matches previous leaked renders surfaced so far.
The video follows another Samsung tease earlier this week, which saw a high-profile executive talk about the camera capabilities found on the Galaxy S6.
"In 2014, we achieved the successful integration of a 16-megapixel camera with our Galaxy S5, which allowed it to capture the finest detail and color of any other smartphone camera on the market at the time," the company said in the post. "This brought us one step further to finally eliminating the gap between digital cameras and our smartphone cameras for good."<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>I am <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TheNextGalaxy?src=hash">#TheNextGalaxy</a>.

"We meticulously evaluate every single facet of our smartphone cameras by taking over 10,000 photos in every imaginable lighting environment for analysis," Samsung concludes. "The same passion and dedication has been put into building the cameras for the release of our 2015 flagship model. It will be intelligent and do all the thinking for users, allowing them to take amazing pictures under any conditions, without having to worry about anything more than just pressing the shutter button."
Previous rumours in the past have claimed that both the Galaxy S6 will use a 20MP rear shooter. Samsung will announce the Galaxy S6 on March 1 in Barcelona. At the same event, we may get to see the arrival of the Galaxy S6 Edge and the updated Gear S watch.
