The time has come… for a ton of Galaxy S6 rumors, leaks and reports to knock on our door. Well, we’ve been getting all of those for a while now, but in a last couple of days the intensity has definitely increased. Samsung is expected to announce their new flagship in March, and I’m sure we’ll see a lot more unofficial info about the device itself. That being said, we have a new report to share with you regarding this handset, let’s see what’s it about.

This report comes from Korea Economic Times, and I guess it’s the most reliable information we have thus far about Samsung’s upcoming handset. The report claims that the Galaxy S6 will ship with a 20-megapixel camera and that OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) will be included in the package. This sensor will be produced by Samsung, according to this report, well, by Samsung’s electro-mechanical division that is. “As the proportion of high-value-added products, such as the 20-mega pixel OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer), increased recently, however, the company is chasing two hares at once, i.e. sales growth and profitability. SEM is planning to further increase the production quantity of high-value-added 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel high-priced camera modules this year. In the second half, the 16-megapixel camera modules may be adopted for mid-to low-priced products as well,” says the report.

Samsung Galaxy S6 will allegedly be announced on March 2nd, and will become available soon after that. Aside from the 20-megapixel camera, this handset is expected to feature a quadHD display, 4GB of RAM and will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos processor. Recent reports have been going back and forth when it comes to a second, Qualcomm-powered model, but I do think that Samsung will launch a Snapdragon 810-powered variant of the device as well. I’m talking about the Snapdragon 810 overheating reports that have been going around, but I doubt there’s any truth to them and I do believe Samsung will introduce that second version of the device next to the Exynos-powered version. What are your thoughts here, do you think that Samsung will announce the Snapdragon 810-powered Galaxy S6 or not?
