Samsung Galaxy S6 is Samsung's best chance to turn the tables in its favor. After losing the battle to Apple in the flagship smartphone race, the tech giant appears to be taking extreme steps to ensure the smartphone's success. The first leaked specs through an AnTuTu benchmark screenshot suggest high-end specs for the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S6. But a screenshot with slightly different specs has emerged from the same source, which has created confusion.
Based on the previously leaked documents, Samsung Galaxy S6 will likely sport a QHD display, Samsung's Exynos 7420 64-bit Octa-Core CPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. But the latest sighting on the benchmark site shows the phone carrying 16 megapixels within its camera sensors, which is a downgrade from a previously shown 20-megapixel camera, PhoneArena reported.
Perhaps, Samsung is developing two variants of the flagship for different markets. But it is too early to draw conclusions at this time. The new screenshot also suggests the chip inside the Galaxy S6 to be powered by Qualcomm, a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 with an octa-core CPU, Adreno 430 GPU and LTE Cat. 6 modem, SamMobile reported. The second version could be to offer customers a variant of its own Exynos processor or the more regular and popular Qualcomm CPU.
Recent reports indicate some issues with the Snapdragon 810, which have led to a delay in the Galaxy S6's launch. Qualcomm has denied any such problems.
Samsung will in all likelihood launch two models at the same time just as it did with the Note series. The company launched its Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge together to meet consumers' varying demands.
There are a lot of speculations surrounding the release of the new Samsung flagship with some suggesting that the S6 might be launched around the MWC or sometime in April.
