Samsung recently launched the metallic A series phones (first of its kind according to them) which failed to garner public interest. So Samsung has high hopes from their upcoming S seriesflagship. Here's what we know Samsung has in store for us.
S6 and S6 edge
Samsung is planning to launch two version of Galaxy S6 - Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. anyone remembers what happened last time when Samsung tried launching two variants of a phone?
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to have a sharper and larger screen with a QHD resolution. This is now an industry standard for a flagship phone with Apple being the sole exception. Samsung is rumored to be preparing a version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 that will feature dual Edge displays with curves on both the right and left sides. Samsung already makes the Galaxy Note Edge, which is curved on the right side, but a curve on both sides would be a fiasco according to us. There are still no apps that utilize the curve on the Edge. Heck, am I supposed to play games on it?
A report from Italy claims that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will not be waterproof. Bad news for you all, Galaxy S6 wont be as rugged like its predecessor.
Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy S6 with 5-megapixel front camera and a 20-megapixel real snapper with optical image stabilisation.
Loads of RAM
Reports indicate that Samsung is about to follow the footsteps of Asus Zenfone 2 (the first phone with 4GB RAM) by equipping the Galaxy S6 with 4GB RAM. While having loads of free RAM is a heavy app user's dream come true, it would be interesting to see how app developers will utilise it, as we are yet to see creative apps that can tap in to the raw potential offered by the insanely powerful hardware.
A custom SoC
Samsung is going to ditch Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor in Galaxy S6 due to an overheating issue. Samsung is reportedly going to use their new Exynos 7420 processor in both versions of S6.
New type of wireless charging
According to Korean report Samsung Galaxy S6 will be the first commercial gadget to use "magnetic resonance" wireless charging. Magnetic resonance chargers send electromagnetic energy to devices with identical resonant frequencies, transferring power efficiently with zero wires.
A possible launch date for Galaxy S6 mentioned by a Korean publication is in March at the annual Mobile World Congress at Barcelona. We hate to ask but are you waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S6?
