After recently introducing the Galaxy A series of smartphones
with the launch of the Galaxy A3
and Galaxy A5
, Samsung is reportedly all set to introduce another new smartphone series.
According to Sammobile, Samsung might finally 'ditch' long naming conventions with the launch launching a new series of smartphones. The report, citing 'reliable sources', suggests that the company will soon introduce a new smartphone range with single-letter naming convention, similar to that of the Galaxy A series.
The report did not include any further details about the kind of smartphones Samsung might introduce in the rumoured new series, or even a tentative timeline for its launch. Notably, Sammobile has had a long history of credible leaks, including the most recently about the introduction of the new Galaxy A series.
Meanwhile, rumours about company's next flagship smartphone, anticipated to be called Galaxy S6, are now doing the rounds of the the Web. The device is reportedly codenamed Project Zero, similar to previous flagship devices like Project J (Galaxy S4), Project H (Galaxy Note 3), Project K (Galaxy S5) and Project T (Galaxy Note 4).
With the name Project Zero, it is being speculated the company is building the Galaxy S6 from scratch. According to sources, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to feature a QHD (1440x2560 pixels) resolution panel, but there is no confirmation on the display size. The camera sensor on the smartphone is said to be the Sony IMX240, the same used by the company on the Galaxy Note 4. However, the firm is yet to decide between a 16-megapixel and a 20-megapixel rear camera. The front-facing camera of Galaxy S6 might be a 5-megapixel snapper, something already seen with company's recently-launched Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 device.
The Galaxy S6 is said to be powered by 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor (four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores), and another variant featuring a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor is expected. The company is also said to be using its own LTE modem (model SS333, or Exynos Modem 333) on the Exynos chipset, ditching the Intel modems used by current chipsets. A power-efficient Broadcom BCM4773 chip combining Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi is also expected to be onboard.
