Samsung, after 2014 particularly difficult because of disastrous sales of Galaxy S5, will be keen to show its expertise in 2015. A new design that will be at the cost of a non-removable battery.
But like every year, well before an official announcement, rumors tributary on the web and give us clues about what might look like the long-awaited smart phone. The Galaxy S6 is no exception to the rule, rather the contrary. To see more clearly so here is a full review of what we know about the Samsung Galaxy S6!
A Premium Design
One of the most often cited complaints about the Samsung Galaxy S5 was related to its design. Its plastic shell was considered the worst effect at a time when competitors like HTC or LG offer products with premium materials.
Given the latest devices released by the Korean tech giant like Galaxy A range, as evidenced by various reports, the S6 should be equipped with a metal shell. There is even talk about a design combining glass and metal that comparable Sony offers with the Xperia Z. Against, we must keep in mind that this type of design would be to the detriment of a removable battery.
For now two versions of the device have been presented in camera at CES 2015, one with an aluminum unibody, the other with a metal frame and a plastic back, like the Galaxy Alpha and Samsung has not yet made its final decision.
64 or 128 GB of Storage
By offering a new generation of its flagship smart phone, Samsung could also see its storage capacity rising, by proposing two storage options of 64 and 128 GB. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily good news since, because of its unibody design, it may well be that the device is free from SD slot. Furthermore, the increase of the storage capacity may also cause an increase in the sales price.
A qHD Display
Obviously, when a new high-end product is created, the quality of the screen is a strong argument for manufacturers to differentiate themselves from the competition. Although a rumor spoke of a 4K screen for the Galaxy S6, it is more likely to be equipped with a Quad HD screen of 5.5 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels as have appeared his various appearances on AnTuTu.
The Super AMOLED screen should be covered by the strongest protective glass market, the Gorilla Glass 4, we already found on the Alpha Galaxy and Galaxy Note 4.
Galaxy S6 (dual) Edge
Like the Note 4, Galaxy S6 should be entitled to its curved variant. The great originality of this alternative would be that the screen, similar to that of the Galaxy Note Edge is curved, not just the right but in the two groups.
Latest Generation Processor and Attractive Features
Samsung flagship is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 64-bit and 810 would be accompanied by at least 3 GB of RAM.
Korean version of the machine, already seen several times on the AnTuTu benchmark tool, would be equipped with an Octo-core 64-bit processor Exynos 7420. The rest should equip the Samsung Galaxy S6 a battery of 3000 mAh and provide ultra fast charging that is already found in many competitors as well as the rating 4.
Faster and More Customization TouchWiz
Samsung could bring two major improvements to the onboard user overlay, TouchWiz. The new version would be lighter and devoid of lag that has often criticized. But that’s not all because the new UI should also introduce more customization via the Theme Center that will change the appearance of the smart phone.
A Latest Camera
Samsung should definitely get a place in this race the best sensors. Some sources suggest that Samsung would choose to keep the same sensor as the Sony IMX240 Galaxy Note 4 it would matter to adopt the same 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 sensor with optical stabilizer OIS on the Galaxy Note 4.
Korean considers equipping its Galaxy S6 with a rear camera 20 megapixels. At the front, we should find a 5 megapixel camera.
As you may know, each year Samsung unveils new features that some call “gadgets”. The Galaxy S6 should not escape the tradition and obviously talking about an improved fingerprint sensor, UV sensor or an iris scanner.
It is obviously still too early to know a precise release date. Samsung has a habit present its new flagship in February and March, 2015 should not deviate from the rule and there is talk of an announcement in early March during the MWC. In the U.S. carriers are likely to sell the device for $199.99 with a standard two year contract.
