The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to be announced soon. But this early, a very reliable report recently released leaked information about its specs, design, and feature. This includes being a better waterproof version that was designed by a chemist from the Philippines.
According to a report at Chosunilbo, a South Korean online publication, Samsung Galaxy S6 is likely to be formally announced on March 2, 2015 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. This is the same event where the Samsung S5 smartphone was announced in February 2014.
There are a lot of rumors about the possible specs and features of the Galaxy S6, which is being dubbed as “Project Zero.” Some reports said that this model is Samsung’s take back on Apple. In fact, many observers call the next flagship model of Samsung an “iPhone 6 killer.”
According to the latest report at BRG.com, one of the most reliable tech fan sites, The new Samsung Galaxy S6 may sport a Snapdragon 820, a 64-bit eight-core 14nm CPU and is 50% faster. This is in line with the report of Bloomberg that the new Samsung smartphone will not use a Qualcomm chip.
BRG.com added that the specs include having a massive 20-MP OIS camera sensor, a 5-MP f/1.8 front-facing camera, and a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a 577ppi density. Note that Apple iPhone 6 is only 326ppi, while the iPhone 6 Plus is 401ppi.
Its body is expected to be made of glass and metal, very far from the all-plastic case of Samsung Galaxy S5. The built-in wireless charging is notably superb, and is being believed to offer usage of four hours per 10-minute charge. This upcoming Samsung model is expected to use a 2550mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy S6 is also reported to have up to 4-GB internal memory space, along with 128-GB removable storage besides the 32GB and 64GB. The unit was said to be lightweight at around 160 to 170 grams. For the connectivity, reports said that S6 will incorporate the 4G LTE network.
Just like its mighty predecessor, Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S6 is also being rumored to be water proof. The S5 comes with an IP67 certification, which means the device can still work well even after being submerged into a 1-meter deep of water for up to 30 minutes.
But here comes the most interesting part. The Galaxy S6 is now being reported to have an IP68 certification, which means users can enjoy 30 minutes of taking photos underwater with a depth of more than 1 meter. This amazing feature was said to have been designed by a Filipino chemist.
Unfortunately, the identity of the Filipino chemist is yet to be revealed once Samsung formally launch the Galaxy S6. Nevertheless, recent rumors said that he is from Agno, Pangasinan and graduated from University of the Philippines Baguio and took up Bachelor of Science in Physics.
