In what could come as a shocker to Samsung fans, the upcoming flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S6 may not come with an upgraded camera, breaking the South Korean electronics giant's tradition of increasing its camera pixel.

The Galaxy S6 is scheduled to be unveiled at Samsung's "Unpacked 2015" event on 1 March, at the Mobile World Conference 2015 (MWC 2015) in Barcelona. The Galaxy S Edge (curved version) is also expected to be released along with the next-generations smartphone.

It is confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will house a 16MP camera with Sony IMX240 sensor, reported SamMobile, adding "our insider Samsung has made considerable tweaks to the camera lens and the software." 

The report went on to say that Samsung might work on improving low-light imaging instead of increasing pixel like in the past. The Galaxy S6 camera will have same pixel as its predecessor Galaxy S5 if it comes with 16MP camera.

It was earlier reported that the next-generation smartphone might come with a 20MP main camera and 5MP front snapper. According to AnTuTu benchmark as reported by CNMO (via Phone Arena), the Galaxy S6 may come with features like octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop and 32GB of internal memory and 3GB RAM. 

According to another report by Phone Arena (via, both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S Edge will come with mobile payment system and fingerprint scanner features.
