Galaxy S6 specs leak reiterates 1440x2560 pixels display, Exynos 7 Octa, and a 16 MP camera
Someone careless is playing around with a prototype Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G925F), leaking it not once, but twice now in a synthetic benchmark database. The alleged Galaxy S6 model has appeared on AnTuTu once again, and the screenshot this time is with exactly a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) resolution, indicating that the eventual S6 might stick with the physical home key that has an embedded fingerprint sensor underneath the display.

This, coupled with the rumors for a 5.5" screen diagonal, means that we might not see any wonders with the screen-to-body ratio of Samsung's upcoming flagship, but let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet. The chipset listed is an octa-core endeavor with ARMv8 instructions set, and a Mali-T768 graphics unit.

This could only be Samsung's upcoming Exynos 7420, part of the new 7 Octa family, that features 64-bit architecture, clock speeds up to 1.8 GHz, and is done with the trendy 20nm process. It will eventually be paired with a tri-band LTE Category 10 modem, too.

So far so good, but here we come to the strange part. We've heard that Samsung is musing between a 16 MP and an even more generous 20 MP camera sensor for the S6, but until now had no tangible proof of this soul-searching process. Well, the first AnTuTu leak had the SM-G925F model listed with a 20 MP sensor, while this one is outfitting it with a 16 MP shooter on the back. 

Also, let's not forget that there might be two versions of the S6 - a regular one for the mass Samsung fan, and a speculated experimental model with a dual-edged flexible AMOLED display, which will undoubtedly go for much more than the base version, similar to the Note 4 and Note Edge duo. 

If history is any indication, we should see the S6 announced around the MWC expo in February-March, with an April release date to follow.

A Snapdragon 810 powered Note 4 sounds more intriguing to me.

S6 will outshine every other smartphone next year. Really have high hopes from this phone.

Bring it on Sammy :)

Maybe if it had 4gb of ram

Yea, the lack of 4GB is the biggest disappointment for me.

I thought they were waiting till 64-bit to jump to 4GB, but looks like they'll coast on 3GB for another year.

but do we really need 4Gb of RAM?

With Samsung Yes. Touch Whiz is heavy, and then add the QHD screen and you have got a major resource drain. 4GB of RAM would help smooth that out.

And you will do what with this extra gig of ram that you cant do with 3gig?

If they debloat TW a bit it would do more than an extra gig of ram.

lolololololololololol

Seriously. Debloating TouchWiz would be Samsung BIGGEST achievement for the Galaxy S6.

+1

I really don't care about these early 64Bit chipsets. This time next year we will get some awesome devices with better 64Bit chipsets with 4+GB of RAM.

The New Nexus & the Note 5 will absolutely be head over heels better than these upcoming devices for early 2015.

Same was said for S5 and it failed miserably in every single department, from build quality, to sales.

Stop exaggerating how did it fail in 'every single department' ? The only place it failed was sales and that because of so many chinese brands recently.

Also, how was built quality of S5 was a fail ? I can link you YT videos where it survives being run over by a car, a 10 feet drop and a drop from an apartment window.

All of that and being water resistant and removable battery cover and also MicroSD slot.

The most popular android handset is a fail at sales?

LOL

You guys are silly.

It failed at "sales projections", not at sales. Samsung just projected too high. That means nothing really other than they didnt adjust for market pressures.

Nope that's not it. GS5 sold LESS then GS4 while iPhones have only increased over previous iteration. This is a clear sign of a failed product.

Also, we all know about how Samsung's profit has fallen drastically over the past couple of years. Even they said in their AGM that its because of the slump in smartphone sales. What more proof do you need ?!

Being said that, it doesn't change the fact that how well rounded phone GS5 is but unlike iPhones marginal improvements over previous generation doesn't cut it in android world.

5312x2988 is 16:9 ratio. This would make 21MP in 4:3 ratio

They have not to fail the design and build quality, hardware specs are no boner nowdays, but quality is.

The S5 is water resistant. Both the S5 and N4 have better specs and build/drop quality than the iphone and the majority of their competitors.

On a "build quality" stance, Samsung is always at the top or near it.

You mean build materials?

Metal is a horrid build material for the outside of the phone.. unless you prefer a shiny brick to a device that can make calls/text in low signal areas. Aluminum phones are not as good for signal strength.

if there is a snapdragon 810 version with 4GB RAM, then i will definitely get it
if it is only exynos, then i will go to the G4 then, as exynos brings too many headaches in the custom ROM world... Courtesy of it being closed-sourced, unlike Qualcomm.

Unfortunately they will save the high end chipset for the Note 5 release. I expect UHD screen 3gb ram and SD 610 processor along with a typical 16gb of storage.

Why QHD?

Evolution that's why. Never going to get better with the drawbacks of QHD unless they continue to try and push the boundaries.
