Samsung Releases Galaxy S6 Memory Hint
The Samsung Galaxy S5 was widely well received and many users were happy with the bells and whistles it offered; a super-clear 5.1-inch screen, a case impermeable to dust and water, etc.
But one of the biggest gripes Samsung fans had with the last flagship was its memory and internal storage capacity. Not that the 2 GB of RAM on the S5 was too paltry, but most people thought that for a phone of its stature, it should have been at least 3 gigs.
The feeling was the same about the 16 or 32 GB of internal storage the phone came with, though this is expandable to 128 GB via the microSD slot. They had expected numbers in the 64 GB range.
Well it appears that all those S5 buyers disappointed with the phone’s RAM capacity will have their qualms addressed in Samsung’s next flagship smartphone. Most phone geeks and speculators seem certain that the Galaxy S6 will come with at least 3 GB of memory.
They are basing their forecast on the features of the soon to be released Note 4.
This latest version of the Note range will probably have this much memory as its predecessor, the Note 3, already has 3 GB RAM on its specs list. The Note 3 also featured 64 GB of internal storage which has given rise to optimism that the newest Galaxy will come with this much storage at the least.
The upcoming Note 4 will probably come with the same amount of storage as well.
Among other features that speculators expect the Korean tech giant to tweak in the latest iteration of the Galaxy series is its processor.
The Galaxy S6 is rumoured to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 or 810 processor, which should boost performance significantly from the 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset of its predecessor.
Though there was no murmuring about the crystal clear Super AMOLED display of the S5, the S6 is widely expected to raise the bar even higher with a sharper display.
Serious complaints were raised by critics and Samsung fans about the design of the Galaxy S5, especially the cheap plastic cover that robbed the phone of the premium feel its otherwise impressive specs warranted.
Those waiting for the S6 will be glad to see hints that Samsung is addressing this issue in the design of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, which features a sleek metallic body.
