Latest Galaxy S6 teaser suggests that the phone will be lightning-fast and (possibly) last you at least a full day

Latest Galaxy S6 teaser suggests that the phone will be lightning-fast and (possibly) last you at least a full day
With less than 15 days standing in the way between now and the moment Samsung execs will step up to the podium and unveil their latest flagship, the Galaxy S6 (and, likely, the S6 Edge), we've entered a phase when leaks and rumors are mixed together with official teasers that aim to drive hype up. Just minutes ago, Samsung took to Twitter to release the second short clip of what we expect is a planned series, but instead of talking about the camera, the company is now suggesting that the S6 will be a great performer and (perhaps) last you a long while.

Now, while the first part of the above statement seems obvious, we'll admit that we're only speculating about the battery's longevity based on the video, which time lapses through a full day in a matter of just a few seconds. Like before, the narrator isn't telling us a whole lot: "The faster I am... the more that gets done.... And the more time I can give to others." That's it.

The clip is a likely a partial hat tip to the newly-released Exynos 7420, built on a 14nm process. The Samsung silicon is said to be up to 30% to 35% more power-efficient than competing 20nm chips (like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810) and offer better performance. We can't comment on efficiency just yet, but that second part may well be true considering a suspected recent pass of the Galaxy S6 Edge through AnTuTu, where it scored a record-high number.

Check out the two teasers below.

You mean that blind test where the iP6 was the top choice for some and then most DSLR photos were either out of focus or had too much bokeh. All that proved was when you remove brand, the common consumer doesn't understand what a 'good' photo is. Over-sharpening and saturated colors were the common themes people chose photos on, not accuracy. Give it to someone who knows, and it's plain obvious the DSLR shots were superior even if out of focus.

People knew which one was the DSLR, that is why it came last. It was too obviuos. Same goes for the iphone 6 and the note. This wasnt a blind test.

"You mean the blind test where the iP6 was the top choice for some..." -mixedfish A lot of stupidity on the Internet these days and this is one of them. Coming in first in only one of the pictures while placing last in four photos would not qualify it as "the top choice for some." "Some" would imply that the ifone garnered more than one first place finishes. Obviously, that is not the case. These Apple fanboys love BENDING the truth.

Sorry but no, photo journalist here, a small sensor like the one in most cellphones will never beat an APSC sensor. PA just cant use an SLR.

Hey. If you went to a runway, and pitted a stock Dodge Viper vs a Jet Fighter as to which one is faster, you would obviously pick the jet...right? Well guess hat? The Jet lost -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e5iv6Tdr5w Costing more doesn't mean its better. A smartphone camera can beat a DSLR. Why you man bro? It isn't the size of the sensor that counts. After all, its the sensor size, lens size, processing and more. Just tossing in a huge sensor doesn't mean it will win. GROW UP!

Not saying that it is impossible for a smartphone to beat a DSLR because it is. It really depends on what things are important to the user. However, the vehicle comparisons need to stop. They are completely ridiculous. There's just no correlation.

DSLR fanboy anyone?

It's basically praising the high-end chip. The faster the chip, the less time things take and we have more time for ourselves. I don't see where battery comes in that.

The little lightening bolt on top of the phone at the end to me suggests wireless charging.

S5 battery already does more than that, just a day would be a step back.

Samsung needs to announce this phone already. With the way this thing is being hyped up via internet rumors, if it doesn't compare to the second coming, people will riot in the streets.

At least 2 days battery life of moderate usage or I'm not interested. UPSM doesn't count. Smartphones should do just fine with power saving modes turned off.

I've got an even better idea. With everyone moving toward non-user-replaceable-batteries, how about a battery that lasts 2 days for 2 years?

A 2800MaH battery isn't going to last more than a day on any phone per se. But considering the S5 still beats the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus says a lot. A year old phone still last longer than a brand new one and both are using 2 year old specs...lol.
