Yesterday we were glad to see the Galaxy Note Edge joining AT&T, but that was yesterday. Now the whole world is speculating about the Galaxy S6 dubbed ‘Project Zero’. What these two handsets have in common? Well, they both share the unique feature of curved side edges, but whereas the Note Edge has only one curved edges, the Galaxy S6 goes even further allegedly offering its customers dual-edge screen. So, even the fact that Galaxy S5 is doing pretty well doesn’t mean Samsung will rest on their laurels, the company is already working on their next flagship.
‘Project Zero’ surfaces online along with the list of Galaxy S6 specs
The recent leaks concerning ‘Project Zero’ surfaced online together with the complete list of the Galaxy S6’s specs, according to which the phone will house the Note 4-like QHD display (sadly, its size is still unknown) and will be powered by an Exynos 7420, which will be the manufacturer’s first actively supported 64-bit SoC.
Technically speaking, the Note 4’s Exynos 5433 is also a 64-bit one but so far there’s only 32-bit support for it. Perhaps, investing in better chipset, Samsung is preparing their future products to be compatible with future versions of Android, which are reported to work only with 64-bit units starting from the recently launched Android 5.0 Lollipop. Furthermore, the company also plans to introduce a Snapdragon version using the Snapdragon 810, the first highly advanced high-end Qualcomm’s 64-bit processor.
Going deeper, the Exynos 7420 is expected to house four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores. The Galaxy S6 will also receive a new in-house LTE model, and the use of Broadcom’s new BCM4773 chip combining Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth on one chip will help to save some power energy.
Moving on to the optics, the handset will allegedly sport the Galaxy Note 4’s Sony-made IMX240, but the manufacturer hasn’t decided yet whether to pick 16MP or 20MP main shooter. No matter what decision will be made, the sensor will be equipped with OIS. The front-facing camera will be a 5MP unit. As for the memory, the Galaxy S6 increases the base level of built-in storage from 16GB to 32GB. So, we may pick among 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, all expandable via microSD slot. As for RAM, the phone is pretty likely to feature 3GB RAM.
Concerning the wide spectrum of the leak, we may safely assume that the new Galaxy S6 is already in the developing stage and that the handset will be officially launched as the Samsung’s next gen flagship device in the first half of 2015.
