User Agent profile for Samsung Galaxy S6 confirms 2K screen and 64-bit processor?
According to a User Agent Profile said to be for the Samsung Galaxy S6, Sammy's next flagship model will feature a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) display. The model number appears as SM-G920A which could mean that this is the model that AT&T customers will receive. The User Agent profile also shows that the phone will employ a 64-bit processor. With software navigation buttons missing from the profile, it would appear that hardware buttons will return. None of this information is unexpected, and the profile merely confirms earlier leaks.

Just the other day, we passed along the rumor that because of issues surrounding the Snapdragon 810 CPU, only 10% of Samsung's initial production of Galaxy S6 units would be powered by Qualcomm's chip. If true, Samsung's own 64-bit Exynos 7420 chip will power 90% of the units tumbling down the assembly line. Once the issue is resolved, which in this case deals with overheating of the chip, Samsung will start increasing production of Qualcomm powered Galaxy S6 units.

We expect to see a 5.5-inch display on the Galaxy S6 with a pixel density of 534ppi. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 16MP and 5MP respectively. For those of you impressed with the rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy S6 is expected to have the same IM240 camera sensor employed on the camera that adorns its back. 3GB of RAM will be on board and Android 5.0 will be pre-installed.

It will be interesting to see the escalation in the specs race between the Samsung Galaxy S6, the LG G4 and the HTC Hima (M9). And now we have Xiaomi stuffing 4GB of RAM into the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro.


Thanks for the tip!

Let's just hope there's a slimmed down touchwiz onboard and something that makes it unique. Let's be real, we can remember the S3 and the S4 somewhat. Hardly anyone remembers anything about the S5 since it came a few months after the Note 3 and the Note 4 pretty much made it forgettable.

Bette Midler remembers it is IP67 certified.

News about Galaxy S6 is just boring now after the rumor that Sammy is considering buying Blackberry.

Why would you hope there's a slimmed down TW, it's not likely to affect you, seeing your an iphone guy through and through.

This is basically an S5 LTE-A.... except the LTE-A has a higher pixel density and a SD 805...

Im sure z4 will be the winner when the battle is which phone has the widest bezel.

I think the display should/will be smaller than 5.5". Samsung doesn't want to have their S line competing with the Notes. Probably max screen size of 5.3".

Yes because a 5.5inch S6 would infringe on the note 4 since its 5.7, I agree 5.2-5.3 would be good (but I wouldn't buy it anyway) touchwiz no matter how slimmed down is still ugly, nexus 6, moto x for me

Why use the overheating sd810 in the first production at all? Sammy should not use any sd810s until a revision is released. Why put troubled chips in 10% of devices? It ought to be 0%.

If the SD 810 is having heating issues and all the top android phones get released with it i dont see any OEM making huge sales. All i see is Apple gaining more iOS users. I will keep my Nexus 6 for 2015 and hope fully Nexus 7 will be as good and big as this one. This is the best Android phone out there.

why would android fans get apple when they would get a free replacement just like bending iphones they just get a replacement not a new os

"TSMC: JP Morgan Sees Little Downside From Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Delay" J.P. Morgan is most worried that Samsung Electronics (005930.KS/SSNLF) will ditch TSMC in its chip production for the Galaxy S6 and go in-house because of the delay: We believe SEC is highly likely to adopt its in-house AP (Exynos) and modem for >90% of its Galaxy S6 model (launching in February), a big departure from previous years, when it used Snapdragon for >70% of the volume (see our recent report on the Samsung supply chain). This would be negative for TSMC in 2Q15 and would hurt 20nm utilization somewhat in 2Q15, in our view.

well you get what you pay for. I have seen xiaomi, and i think their software is horrible, bad batterylife even with large battery capacity. but that's just me, others may find it decent.

What more do they want from screens? The eye can only see so much! It's all just to get a sell.

One thing that I praise Samsung for is keeping the hardware buttons. This is especially important on AMOLED displays, where on-screen buttons can easily cause a lot of burn-in...

Please, I don't need 2K display! 1080p is good enough.

LG just want to release a phone, they don't care about quality control. That's why they had a terrible display that couldn't even remain on full brightness for long. G Flex 2 is supposed to be lagging anyway.

Question to ask here is, which chip is more powerful?

That's not 2k; 2048x1152 is 2k. 2560x1440 is, if anything, closer to 3k.

whats the point of 64bit on a phone when you have less than 4GB of ram? CAD rendering? lol
