Samsung Galaxy S6 that is said to be released at the upcoming MWC in Barcelona is now said to come with a 16MP camera. Previously we heard rumors that The Next Galaxy smartphone would have a 20MP camera. Quite a number of details were leaked about the Galaxy S6 on the internet and one of them said that it was going to have a 20MP camera but now it looks like that is not going to be the case.

The reason why we were hearing about a 20MP S6 was because Samsung was doing testing on them. But now we’re hearing that Samsung will use Sony’s IMX240 sensor in its upcoming phone. This is the same sensor which was used in the Galaxy Note 4.
They have made some changes to this sensor and the camera software so that its performance could be improved. The new phone will have better camera performance in low light conditions and this is because Samsung’s S6 teasers suggest the same thing.
Samsung Galaxy S6 will reportedly have a 5” or 5.1” QHD Super AMOLED touchscreen. The phone will also have an Exynos 7420 SoC with an octa-core processor. It will also have 3GB of RAM and will support 4G LTE. The battery size will be 2600mAh and the phone will run on the latest Android Lollipop. The phone will use a new antenna type which is said to avoid interference from the metal body.
The phone’s frame will be made up of Aluminum and the Korean company said that they had to build a new antenna in a way that the signal could pass without interference. They are switching from Laser Direct Structuring antenna to flexible PCB antenna type. The new antenna will be able to flex in areas where the phone has internal radios offering cellular and NFC.
