Speculated to be the Korean tech giant's "Project Zero," reports surrounding the Galaxy S6 continue to pop online. This time, we're treated with a latest leak cited by GSMArena. Unfortunately, some may not be very happy once they find out what it is.

According to the outlet, the User Agent Profile for a certain "SM-G920A" confirmed S6 details such as the alleged screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. This reiterated the Galaxy S6's QHD visual, which naturally counts for something to be glad about.

However, the source went on to reveal the leak's CPU type, which set the Galaxy S6 with an ARM11-based chipset. What's surprising about this?

Well, GSMArena called this a "very old" architecture that's entirely 32-bit in nature. No word about 64-bit has been cited in the profile, and this could be alarming for those who expected a later processor. If the leak is indeed the Galaxy S6, how did it become Samsung's "Project Zero?"

We can never really tell, unless a company confirmation kills all the speculations. It goes to say that the recent leak must be taken with caution, as there had also been reports indicating that the Galaxy S6 arrives in two variants: one running Qualcomm's Snapdragon 10 and another with an octa-core Exynos 7420 chip.

We also took note of other rumored specs such as a 5.5-inch display panel, 20 MP main camera, 5 MP front snapper, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and Android 5.0 Lollipop support.

Citing information from Business Korea, TechnoBuffalo reported that Samsung might bring TouchWiz improvements to the Galaxy S6. According to the report, there will be a "totally redesigned version" of the interface, expected to be better than the current one.

In terms of the device's release date, CNET is convinced that the March - April 2015 timeline would be likely. The source set eyes on the upcoming Mobile World Congress (Mar. 2 - 5) or perhaps, another exclusive event. The MWC prediction stemmed from Samsung's traditional S-line releases, letting the Galaxy S5 out in the same event (2014). The Galaxy S4, on the other hand, was unveiled in a separate event (March 2013) following the MWC.

The device may be priced for $649 in full payment or $199 under a two-year contract, Phone Arena noted.

Are you impressed by the Galaxy S6's specs? Do you look forward to see the Galaxy S6 Edge?
