More alleged details around the Samsung Galaxy S6 ("Project Zero") revealed, including the processor, display and model numbers
Fan-made Galaxy S6 concept render
While the latest flagship devices from Samsung were very well received on the whole, it's becoming quite obvious that the company's financial position is not as strong as in the past. According to the latest IDC numbers, Samsung shipments dropped 8.2% in Q3 2014 (compared with the same period in 2013), all the while the rest of the Top 5 increased theirs. Supposedly in a move to combat this decline, Samsung will be designing its next big thing, the Galaxy S6, from the ground up – a project that we're told is internally referred to as Project Zero.
With less than half a year left until March (the time Samsung usually releases its S-line refresh), we're already slowly transitioning into the Galaxy S6 rumor phase, and a new report is seeking to jump-start it. Citing alleged insider sources, the folks behind SamMobile claim to have gotten their hands on more concrete details around the S6.
The Exynos 7420 also offers support for face/eye recognition. Could the Galaxy S6 end up with a feature that makes use of it?
Other supposed specifics include a new LTE modem built in house (Exynos Modem 333), which could replace the Intel silicon already found on the latest Exynos silicon, along with a Broadcom BCM4773 module, which carries out calculations related to the work of the GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other sensors on a single chip, minimizing battery drain the process. Lastly, we were also given a list of the various regional model numbers of the Galaxy S6 – you can check it out right below.
