Aiming High – Samsung Galaxy S6 To Allegedly Come With Blisteringly Fast Cat. 10 LTE On Board

With January and next year’s Consumer Electronics Show fast approaching,
more and more news has started to become available about Samsung’s new
hardware plans and specifications for its next flagship smartphone – the
Samsung Galaxy S6. The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been the feature of quite a
few news items over the past days, and thanks to these various leaks
and rumors, we can get a rough idea of what Samsung’s next flagship
device will come with.


Samsung Developing In-House Cat. 10 LTE Technology To Go With The Exynos SoC.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to follow Samsung’s two-tier
strategy of releasing its devices with two SoC variants. So far, the
flagship is expected to come with the Snapdragon 810 and Samsung’s
in-house, octa-core, Exynos 7 Octa on board. Both the Exynos 7 Octa and
the Snapdragon 810 come equipped with Cat 6. LTE which can delier
download speeds of up to 300 MB/s.

But if news
out of Korea holds any water, Samsung plans to change that with the
release of the Galaxy S6. Allegedly, the manufacturer is also developing
its own in-house tri-band LTE Cat. 10 baseband, which will be able to
deliver download speeds of up to 450 MB/s. To make things better, this
Cat. 10 technology will be integrated with Samsung’s in-house Exynos
SoC.

If true, then we could very well be seeing the Samsung Galaxy S6
coming with Cat. 10 on board. Qualcomm already has developed the
technology, but has not introduced it on the Snapdragon 810. Cat. 10 on
the Exynos could end up opening several doors for Samsung. This would
include a lesser dependency on third-party suppliers for its devices and
could allow the manufacturer to pursue areas of development it has not
ventured into before. Nevertheless, its still too early to be making
concrete speculations about Samsung’s development plans, so stay in
touch and we’ll keep you updated. And let us know in the comments
section about what you think.
