Preliminary Samsung Galaxy S6 specs leak online

The leaked specs might just be what will be featured on Samsung’s next big thing.


Samsung’s flagship smartphones are the least prone to being fully leaked weeks (or even months) ahead of their official announcement, but it seems that when it comes to the Galaxy S6, the Korean manufacturer might just have failed to maintain the level of secrecy it is popular for. The folks over at BGR have revealed what they claim to be the full spec sheet of the Galaxy S6, and they indicate the device will be an amazing smartphone that trumps the already top-notch Galaxy Note 4.

According to the report, the Galaxy S6 will feature a 64-bit 14nm processor that is 50 percent faster than its predecessor, underneath a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1440 (Quad HD) pixels, stunning outdoor visibility, and a super dim light mode for late night usage. The camera will supposedly receive a bump from 16-megapixel to 20-megapixel, with hardware-based optical image stabilization. The front camera will be a 5MP unit, with a f/1.8 sensor.

Furthermore, BGR claims the S6 will be offered in 32, 64 and 128GB storage variants, a 2,550mAh battery with built-in wireless charging, a new payment service dubbed Samsung Pay, and a metal and Gorilla Glass 4 body. Cat 6 LTE connectivity will also be on-board, and users will apparently get up to four hours of usage on a 10-minute charge.

Except for the rather low battery capacity, the leaked spec sheet doesn’t seem too far-fetched given Samsung’s penchant to use the latest greatest specs in its flagships (and especially when you consider the fact that the company is aiming to make the S6 much better than anything it has released before), though there’s always an uncertainty when it comes to such info.

The Galaxy S6 is expected to be unveiled a day before MWC kicks off in March, and we will likely see more leaks leading up to the big day.
