Samsung Galaxy S6 is currently one of the most anticipated and hotly discussed devices on different tech forums. Yesterday we saw the images of an old prototype and some renders for the device which all point to some changes made by the company in terms of design tweaks and chassis material change. In the past weeks we had been hearing other details for the device, which also point to a metal glass design, a concept employed by Sony as well.
The latest report out by the French site NoWhereElse presents more evidence related to the size, design and dimensions of the device. The given information points to a sleeker and longer device but keeping with the design aesthetic of the S-series. The dimensions of S6 reportedly are 5.65 x 2.78 x 0.28inch (143.5 x 70.7 x 7.2 mm). The reported display size beforehand was 5.2-inches and the new information points to a larger display.
The rumored specifications of the Galaxy S6 report that it will come with a Quad HD display. Samsung has already introduced this aspect in Galaxy Note 4. The device will be powered by a 64-bit Exynos 7440 octa-core processcor. Samsung beforehand was going to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset but due to over-heating issue switched to their own Exynos processor. It was rumored that Qualcomm may redesign the Snapdragon 810 but it does not seem likely now. The smartphone will have a 3 GB RAM, we hope that the final version has 4 GB, Xaiomi and Asus are making use of this feature currently and Samsung needs to stay on top of their game. Apart from this a 20-megapixel main camera will grace the device.
The Galaxy S6 along with S6 Edge is supposed to be unveiled on 2nd March at Samsung’s press event at the MWC. Most of the news and leaks that we have seen to date are related to Galaxy S6, so it does make us speculate if we will be looking at the S6 Edge at the same event. What do you say?
Galaxy S6 is shaping up to be an interesting device, one of the Samsung’s executive said that it will be an ‘innovative premium handset’. Let’s see what the end product ends up looking like and will it wow us or make us wonder that the company could have done better. The MWC is just a few weeks away and all of our questions will be answered soon, in the meanwhile have a look at some of the drawings and the casing of the device.
