Samsung Galaxy S6 camera hype train at full steam

Samsung has confirmed the shape of its Galaxy S6 camera in its latest effort to heap praise on the upcoming device’s photographic capabilities.

A new video released by the South Korean electronics firm reveals the outline of a squared-off camera housing, marking the snapper as a key feature of the S6.

Previous Samsung flagships have used square camera housing, so that’s not exactly a revelation. The sketch does fit with leaked renders however, which is worth noting.

What’s more, the teaser video is largely set in a dark tunnel, which implies that low-light photography will be improved in the new device.

This video follows another Samsung tease earlier this week, which saw an exec at the firm talk up the flagship handset’s rear shooter.

“Passion and dedication has been put into building the cameras for the release of our 2015 flagship model,” wrote the exec.

It will be intelligent and do all the thinking for users, allowing them to take amazing pictures under any conditions, without having to worry about anything more than just pressing the shutter button.”

Previous rumours have suggested that the Galaxy S6 will make use of a 20-megapixel rear-facing sensor. It’s also expected to boast a noteworthy ISO rating, perhaps taking aim at Sony’s current market-leading 12800 ISO on the Xperia Z3.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to launch on March 1 at Mobile World Congress 2015, landing alongside a Note Edge-style variant called the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
