It looks like the Galaxy S6 leaks are flowing like a burst pipe now. Earlier today new intel was leaked regarding the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Supposedly, Sammy decided to really amp up the power level of the camera to new heights. Supposedly, the folks at SamMobile got their hands on a Galaxy S6 prototype camera and figured out a few things. Here's what they gleaned,
- It will have 20-megapixel rear camera (with optical image stabilization) and a 5-megapixel front camera
- Both cameras are a Samsung design (model numbers SLSI_S5K2T2_FIMC_IC and SLSI_S5K4E6_FIMC_IS)
- The rear camera will take photos in 20MP (5952×3348), 15MP (4464×3348), 11MP (3344×3344), 8MP (3264×2448), 6MP (3264×1836) and 2.4MP (2048×1152) resolution.
We have also picked up information on the camera software on the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge. Samsung is using the APIs that debuted on Android 5.0 Lollipop to offer a Pro mode in the camera app. This Pro mode will enable the option to choose between three focus modes, including a manual focus mode similar to the one found on third-party apps like Manual Camera. We could possibly also get other advanced options, such the ability to save RAW images and control the shutter speed, which would give advanced users the power to shoot photos the way they want to.
If this rumint (and everything else we have heard) proves true, then it appears Samsung is truly striving hard to distinguish the Galaxy S6 from the competition this time. Will they be able to stand tall?
