As I said the other day in Five things we’re looking forward to in 2015: “people aren’t asking about Samsung Galaxy S6 specs; they’re asking what Samsung can truly do differently with the Galaxy S6 that’ll make people think twice about straying to LG or Sony or HTC, and consider upgrading their S5s after just 12 months.”
Here we turn our attention to, er, Samsung Galaxy S6 specs, supposedly including a 2K QHD display and 64-bit processor.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 specs are ripped from a user agent profile for the SM-G920A, possibly the AT&T S6.
In any case, we’re seeing “<prf:ScreenSize>1440x2560”, which means QHD, which means 3.7 million pixels on your Samsung Galaxy S6 display - same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Elsewhere, we have “base64”, which indicates a 64-bit processor. Interestingly, that could be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which is rumoured – but only rumoured, mind you – to be suffering from overheating problems; or an in-house 64-bit Exynos processor from Samsung.
As I touched on in the opening paragraph, an impressive Samsung Galaxy S6 spec sheet alone isn’t going to cut the proverbial mustard. However, Samsung is reportedly contemplating a metal design, and perhaps a variant with one or two Edge displays – akin to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.
Samsung hasn’t said anything official, but we reckon the Galaxy S6 launch will go down at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in early March.
