The Galaxy S6 would be Samsung's next-generation flagship smartphone, if it follows the typical launch cycle. As usual, there have been ton of rumours surrounding around the arrival of the Galaxy S6 - the successor to the Galaxy S5.
At the same time, it's been constantly speculated that the Galaxy S6 might have full metal bodied design, something we'd like to see. Apparently, a new report from BGR, which claims to have received photos and specifications of the device, from a trusted source.
While the folks over at BGR are not ready to post the phone's image; however, they seemed to have confirmed that the Galaxy S6 will be made entirely of metal and glass. Also, the screen of the high-end smartphone is expected to be covered with Gorilla Glass 4, like Samsung's Galaxy Alpha.
Furthermore, the Galaxy S6 will reportedly sport a 5.1-inch QHD (2K resolution) display. The report further indicated that the Galaxy S6's display would be sharp, instead of being large in size.
As for processing output, the device will be powered by a 64-bit eight-core 14nm CPU, which is said to be 50 % faster. Meanwhile, some media reports are claiming that the Galaxy S6 is apparently run on a 64-bit eight-core 14nm Exynos processor. It looks like, as if, Samsung is on the verge of dropping a Snapdragon 810 processor in favour of its home backed Exynos processor.
As for camera, the Galaxy S6 is said to come with a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera, alongside a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Unfortunately, it's being reported that the successor to the Galaxy S5 could be stuffed with a smaller battery pack (2,550mAh) fitted inside. Just for the comparison sake, the Galaxy S5 packed a 2,800mAh battery. However, on the flipside, there will apparently be built-in wireless charging, so you'll get hours of battery backup with just 10 minutes of charge.
As for new features and services, Samsung is reportedly planning to debut "Samsung Pay", the firm's answer to Apple Pay. Apparently, the Galaxy S6 could be the first Samsung-made handset to support Samsung Pay.
It is expected that the Galaxy S6 and Samsung Pay will be announced at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in March this year.
