Samsung's next-generation flagship phone is expected to launch in the first-half of 2015, and as usual the internet is abuzz with plenty of exciting rumors.
While the Galaxy S5 has been criticized for being an average device, expectations from its successor seemed to be high. That's primarily because of Samsung's massive fan following worldwide.
Samsung's next update in the Galaxy S series, likely to be called the Galaxy S6, promises to be bolder and better.
Will it a bigger or stay same size? Will it feature an all new design? None of these questions will be answered until Samsung takes the stage next year, but we can't wait until February. So, we've collected all the latest gossip we've heard right here.
So, here's a roundup of all of the most believable rumors so far. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
The Samsung Galaxy S5 was slammed by the mainstream media for being "too boring and repetitive". The handset was crafted out of plastic, but it seems that the next-generation phone should feature an all new design. Reportedly, the successor to the Galaxy S5, codenamed ‘Project Zero', is expected to be a super premium handset.
2K Resolution Display
A screenshot leaked by Chinese website CNMO from the database of benchmarking site AnTuTu allegedly offers insights into the alleged specs sheet of the Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S6 would sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 1,440x2,560 pixels.
Of course, this is merely a projection, so there's no telling whether or not we'll actually see an improved display resolution on the Galaxy S6.
64-Bit Octa-Core Processor
SamMobile claims the Galaxy S6 will come with its own new Exynos 7420, a 64-bit chip with four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores. At the same time, reports event suggest that Samsung could opt for a Snapdragon 810 processor. The device would at least feature 3GB of RAM, and is expected to come in a variety of storage options.
Even though there's no word on the Galaxy S6 camera yet but we expect it be 20MP. Recently, an alleged report had confirmed that the Galaxy S6 would have a 20MP rear-camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter. The Camera UI is also expected to get an overhaul.
Software and Release Date
Google has already announced Android 5.0 Lollipop. So, we expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to run Android 5.0 Lollipop. More importantly, Samsung's native TouchWiz is expected to get enhanced look.
Although there is no official word from Samsung just yet, but if past launches taken into the consideration, we should expect to see the Galaxy S6 in a couple of months.
