The camera of the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be much simpler than that of recent Samsung flagships, replacing a mass of features and settings with little more than a shutter button.

Where usually such a claim would come with the caveats of 'insiders say' or 'it is understood that', this time the news has come from the horse's mouth - from Samsung's own blog.

Written at the end of a post about the history of smartphone cameras, the snippet of information claims the camera is intelligent and will automatically produce the best photo possible, without the need to pick from a wide range of options, as has been the case on recent Galaxy S phones.

Referring to its "2015 flagship model," Samsung writes: "It will be intelligent and do all the thinking for users, allowing them to take amazing pictures under any conditions, without having to worry about anything more than just pressing the shutter button."

The company says the Galaxy S6, which is expected to be announced at an Unpacked media event on 1 March, "will demonstrate just how far Samsung has advanced smartphone cameras, and once again will open the creative side of users for new ideas and new possibilities."

Following two generations of mediocre improvements, Samsung is believed to have made a fresh start with the Galaxy S6. It is said to have an all-metal body and be available in two versions, one with a screen which curves around one edge of the chassis, as it does on the Galaxy Note 4 Edge.

We'll find out more on 1 March, 2015, just hours after HTC is expected to announce the One (M9) at a flagship unveiling of its own, also in Barcelona.
