More details have emerged on Samsung's next flagship- the Galaxy S6 smartphone- making it probably the most written about and searched gadget to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in March.
While we wrote about Samsung's decision to use its home-made processor for the Galaxy S6 in a move away from its partnership with Qualcomm, a fresh report from BGR revealed today that the phone may feature a 5.1 inch screen with a quad HD Super AMOLED display, a 50% faster CPU and a 20MP rear camera.
Sporting a glass and metal body, the S6 may also have a payment feature that works with 90 per cent of existing magnetic and NFC terminals.
The move could be a reaction to the recently launched Apple Pay payment system for iOS devices. BGR calls it the Samsung Pay- a term that could launch another copyright war with Apple. Also, akin to the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus, the new Galaxy S6 could come with 32/64/128GB models.
However, with a built-in wireless charging facility, the S6 could feature impressive machinery with a powerful 2550mAH battery, an octacore 64-bit processor (an untested debutant) and a minimum of 4GB RAM, the performance could be as good as it gets, given the unlimited functionalities of modern day smartphones.
Apart from the 20 megapixel punch, the rear camera may also contain real time HDR capability, which is also the case with the 5MP front camera. It seems Samsung has done its homework well this time, though we would like a real time road test to confirm the speculations come March.
