When we spoke with Samsung earlier this year, they told us that the development of the Galaxy S6 was referred to internally as Project Zero. This was supposed to represent a new beginning for the company’s flagship smartphone line. You might also remember some of the novelties of the curved display from our Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge hands-on video too. Now that they’ve started all over again (sort of, not really), it’s time to keep a good thing going. You would think that Project Zero would be followed by Project One, but now we’re hearing rumblings of a Samsung Project Zero 2 instead.

So, what can we expect from this next-generation Samsung smartphone? The unearthed rumors have revealed a model number of SM-G928 and it’s being said that Project Zero 2 — or whatever the final official model name becomes — is going to be a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge with a similarly dual curved display, but that screen will be a bigger 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED panel. Under the hood, we’re expecting a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 32GB of internal storage (and likely no microSD slot, as per the current direction by Samsung), 16MP rear camera with OIS, and a 5MP camera on the front.

Even though the screen is getting bigger and we may be inclined to think it’d enter the Note family, we’d be wrong. Project Zero 2 will not be the follow-up to the Galaxy Note 4 and thus will not have S Pen functionality. That’s being reserved for the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920), which is currently going by Project Noble and should be revealed at IFA in September. Stranger yet, there’s talk of a Keyboard Cover for both new phones. Remember when some smartphones had built-in keyboards? We could be back to that again, sort of.

In any case, these are all just leaks and rumors at the moment, but we’re staying on top of this story as it develops.
