Samsung Galaxy S6 to feature QHD display and Snapdragon 810 CPU?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 will launch next year with a QHD display and a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor in tow, latest reports have suggested.

Teased yesterday under the codename ‘Project Zero’, the Galaxy S6 has now been outed as being a major refresh over the existing Galaxy S5.

As well as adopting a Note 4 and LG G3 mimicking 2560 x 1440 pixel display, the Galaxy S6 will also reportedly benefit from improved camera optics and an all new design.

The latest reports have surfaced through unnamed ‘insiders’ cited by SamMobile. Given the site’s hit and miss history of leaks, however, we’d suggest taking these reports with a sizeable pinch of salt for now. Although trends would suggest a QHD display and improved snapper will be on the S6’s hit-list, Samsung has yet to officially acknowledge the existence of such a device.

One of the most eagerly awaited upcoming smartphones, the Galaxy S6 will, according to the latest reports, pair the same 16-megapixel, OIS-enhanced rear-mounted camera as found on the Note 4 with a upgraded 5-megapixel snapper around front.

Another crossover taken from the Note 4 will be increased storage capacities. The S6 will reportedly ditch 16GB as the base storage option, instead opting for 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

Given Samsung’s insistence on launching multi-configuration options of its biggest phones, the Snapdragon 810 processor packing S6 will reportedly land alongside an Exynos loving handset.

This Samsung-chipped option is tipped to run a new Exynos 7420 processor, a 64-bit chip which pairs four Cortex-A53 cores with four Cortex-A57 cores.

Further features expected to be heading for the S6’s specs sheet include Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS and a new, in-house developed LTE modem.

Although the latest leaks have failed to point to when the Galaxy S6 will enter the realms of reality, previous reports have pointed to a MWC 2015 unveiling for the future iPhone 6 rival.
