The smartphone boasts of the 14 nm processor which is going to be extremely fast and will support the 64 Bit architecture. While it is interesting to note that the current flagship processor in the HTC M9 is Snapdragon 810 which is manufactured using 20 nm process. Initially, there were reports that Samsung ditched the Snapdragon 810 processor due to heating issues.
While now we can assume Samsung would have preferred it’s own Exynos 7420 for both the Samsung Flagship smartphones. Samsung has raised the specs bar yet again with the launch of Samsung Galaxy S6.
Both the smartphones S6 and S6 edge runs on Exynos 7420 – Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 & Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53.
Samsung has included the LP DDR4 3GB Ram on both the devices which makes them extremely fast. LP DDR4 RAM is a significantly faster ram compared to the current generation of RAM we see in the modern smartphones. Both the models will be available in 32/64/128 GB storage variants.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has 5.1 inch super Amoled display with (70.7% screen-to-body ratio) and world’s highest PPI with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution. (~577 ppi pixel density).
There is no micro SD slot on these smartphones because of which Samsung has upped the storage capacity.
Samsung has positioned the speaker now at the bottom side of the smartphone and claims that it is 1.5 times louder compared to the current generation of smartphones.
The design of the smartphone is a far cry from the earlier version of the galaxy S5. The smartphone is very light and weighs 138 grams (Samsung Galaxy S6) & 132 grams only for the Samsung S6 edge. The whole metallic frame is really gorgeous and specially the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge looks really beautiful.
The battery size has been reduced on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and it is 2550 mAh while on the Galaxy S6 edge the battery capacity is 2600 mAh. Despite the reduction of the battery capacity Samsung’s new 14 Nm processor Exynos 7420 is expected to be highly energy efficient with big.Little ARM architecture which uses the lower clocked cores for simpler tasks to reduce battery usage.
