How will probably be next Samsung Galaxy, S6?

December 15, 2014 by Laur | 0 comments

The new Samsung Galaxy S6 should be a success after the „not so popular” Galaxy S5.
From unofficial sources Galaxy S6 might be launched in the first quarter of 2015 and we expect a QHD display with 2560X1440 resolution.

S6 will probably have two variants like Galaxy Note, one of them (EDGE variant) with flexible display and 4K feature.

 

„Project Zero”how is called on the internet the next Galaxy is expected to feature 4Gb RAM memory witch will make it faster and smoother, ROM memory between 32Gb and 128Gb, A faster 64 bit processor, 20mpx rear camera and a new Broadcom sensor chip, BCM4773.

The Broadcom BCM4773 minimizes battery drain and adds a new layer of intelligence to location technology on mobile devices by integrating the GNSS chip and sensor hub into a single combo chip. BCM 4773 architecture enables information from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Smart, GPS to be calculated on a single system-on-chip (SoC) instead of the application processor (AP). This unique design drives more than 80 percent power savings by offloading from the AP.

With all those features, Galaxy S6 in my opinion, will rock on the smartphone market again like his old friend Galaxy S3.
