With the Samsung Galaxy S5 having launched at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February this year, there’s a good chance we’ll meet the inevitable Galaxy S6 in just a couple of months’ time.
In the meantime, we’re looking at some purported Samsung Galaxy S6 specs courtesy of a benchmark thingamajig, and the upshot is – surprise, surprise – that it’s a bit of a beast.
Starting with the display, we’re a little surprised to hear that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will stretch – supposedly – to 5.5in. To give that figure some context, the Galaxy S3 measured 4.8in, the Galaxy S4 came in at 5in, and the Galaxy S5 stayed on the right side of reasonable at 5.1in. A 5.5in Galaxy S6 would be quite a stretch.
More importantly, the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 4 both have 5.7in displays, so Samsung would immediately blur the lines between its two flagship seriesiesies. Y’know, unless – in turn – the Galaxy Note 5 takes a big stretch, hmm…
Anyway! Needless to say, the Samsung Galaxy S6 resolution is listed at QHD, that’s 2560 x 1440 = 3.7 million pixels, an offering already made by the LG G3 and Galaxy Note 4. If the Samsung Galaxy S6 isn’t QHD, I’ll eat Jan’s hat.
Other Samsung Galaxy S6 specs include 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage (presumably expandable via microSD), and 20MP/5MP rear/front cameras.
Finally, powering the show, is the as-yet-unannounced Samsung Exynos 7420 processor with eight cores.
Bear in mind that benchmarks are subject to saltiness, and even if this thing is legit, it could be some sort of prototype.
