There’s a rumoured 6.0-inch screen, the same size that Huawei uses on the Mate 7, with a 1920×1080 screen and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Qualcomm is employed to provide the power, with a Snapdragon 620 chipset forming the device’s brain, with an Adreno 510 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of onboard storage as well, and Samsung will provide room for a microSD card expansion card of up to 128GB.

Ultimately, we’re not sure if the device will retail in South Africa, but it does seem an Indian certainty. No pricing, launch date or availability information is available as yet either.
