- Picture: Samsung
Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S6 smartphone sometime during the first half of next year and various rumors have already hit the internet that could reveal its final specs.
Some of which include 4GB RAM, a 16-core processor, 128GB of internal memory, a projector option, a 21 megapixel camera with 8k resolution and a 5.2-inch Ultra HD display. All of these hardware editions would give Samsung a nice head start with the competition next year.
The device is also expected to feature a 3300-3500 mAh battery that will last for more hours and it will run Android 5.0 by the time it comes out.
Although these specs are quite enticing, some of them just don't make sense for a smartphone. The current S5 model features 2GB of RAM so upgrading to 4 seems like too much of a jump. A 16-core processor also feels like overkill. Samsung will definitely add a better chipset to its next flagship which will probably be an eight-core standard.
There is a good chance for a 21-megapixel rear camera as that seems more in step with the progress from Galaxy to Galaxy. The current model features a 16-megapixel shooter so a jump to 21 is pretty feasible.
Boosting up the battery also would be a good way to go as longer lasting smartphones are needed. Even with power saving options and other software related solutions, many of today's high-end handsets still die out after moderate daily use.
The long rumored Android 5.0 still seems to be on the back burner as Google is content with releasing upgrades for KitKat. Android 4.5, or something between that and 5.0 will probably be the software that will be found on the next-gen Samsung flagship.
