Samsung's Galaxy S6 is Expected to be a 64bit 2K Affair

Samsung Galaxy S6 looks set to be a 2K marvel

We're expecting Samsung's next flagship phone to break cover in the near future, and we now have some solid details on what to expect - thanks to a discovered User Agent Profile.
As spotted by Dutch site TechTastic (that's the bit of code that tells a site how to behave on particular devices) the Galaxy S6 looks set to pack a QHD 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution, something we had been expecting. The listed model number is SM-G920A which is likely to be the AT&T version of the S6 in the US.
QHD has always been the rumoured display resolution for the Galaxy S6 - although we have heard reports that Samsung is going to release a couple of different models, with one featuring a curved edge to its display like the Galaxy Note Edge.

64-bit future

Other bits of information revealed by the UAP are that the Galaxy S6 will be using physical hardware buttons and come with the 64-bit version of Android installed, which lines up with the 64-bit processor we think the S6 will have.
The reported CPU information is a bit of a puzzler, though: the data says the Samsung Galaxy S6 is going to be using an ARM11-based chipset, which sounds much too old. Presumably something has been lost in translation.
Still, we don't have too long to wait before everything is confirmed. We're expecting the Galaxy S6 to break cover at this year's MWC event in March, and to pass the time between now and then you can read everything we know so far about Samsung's next flagship smartphone.
