Samsung Electronics is tight-lipped on the release date and features of its upcoming flagship smartphone dubbed as the Galaxy S6 but so much has been written about it. Now, a new report has claimed that the next-generation smartphone's camera could be downgraded or at least be seen with the same megapixel as in the Galaxy S5.
However, it will come as a surprise if Samsung doesn't increase camera pixel of the Galaxy S6, as it is known for upgrading it. The Galaxy S3 has an 8MP camera, which was increased to 13MP in Galaxy S4 and to 16MP in Galaxy S5. Moreover, almost all the flagship smartphones have good camera pixel, and Samsung may not want to lag behind its competitors.
It may also be mentioned that there were rumours before the release of the Galaxy Note 4 that its camera would be reduced to 12MP from 13MP seen in its predecessor, the Note 3 but it was not to be in reality. The Galaxy Note 4 came with a 16MP camera and not 12MP as rumoured.
Interestingly, latest AnTuTu benchmark on the Galaxy S6, as reported by Mobifo, claimed that the device will have qHD screen with 1440 x 2560 pixels, powered by an octa-core 64-bit processor, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop and come with a 15.9MP camera.
However, Chinese website CNMO (via Phone Arena) had earlier exposed AnTuTu benchmark that claimed the Galaxy S6 would sport a 5.5-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, powered by an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor with an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, come packed with 32GB of internal memory and 3GB RAM, and have a 20MP main camera and 5MP front snapper.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015) to be held in Spain from 2 to 5 March, 2015.
