Just yesterday Samsung got the invitations out for their MWC event, where it is expected that the company will be unveiling their next flagship Galaxy S6 as well a new wearable, the Orbis Watch. The launch teaser did make us speculate if Samsung will also be announcing the dual side curved variant Galaxy S6 Edge at the event, it seems likely as back in September Samsung surprised everyone by introducing Galaxy Note Edge with Galaxy Note 4. To date there have been different speculations related to the design and build of both the variants, news from it being a metal glass design to some of the images of its old prototype were seen, so there is still no confirmation about what it actually looks like.
SamMobile has just added some interesting information to the mix that the upcoming Galaxy S6 will be available in 4 different colors: dark blue, blue-green, gold and white. Gold and white are not new colors to the S-series and the company has made use of the dark blue color in its Galaxy A series but the blue-green is a new color that Samsung has added to its palette. It is good that people will have a variety of colors, but those looking forward to the company to introduce some funky fun colors will have to be disappointed. The color palette also in a way also hints towards the use of aluminum for the Galaxy S6, as this is what they are using in the A series, and the dark blue color used there can be replicated for this flagship.
Some of the rumored features of the Galaxy S6 indicate that the device will sport a 5-inch or 5.2-inch QHD Super AMOLED display. The handset will be powered by a 64-bit quad-core Exynos 72420 chipset and Mail-T760 GPU. It is reported that either a 3 GB or 4 GB RAM will be part of the smartphone, we are hoping that Samsung goes for 4 GB as different other companies are making use of this feature. A 16/20-megapixel main and 5-megapixel front camera will sport the device and it will support LTE Cat. 10 connectivity. A touch based finger print sensor may also grace the device.
Samsung has been working hard on their ‘Project Zero’. In 2014 the company’s profit graph fell due to Apple in the high-end marker and Chinese start-ups in the mid-range category. So the company has high hopes for their flagship but they need to understand that to retain their market position they cannot just depend on their high-end flagships but follow the strategy as employed by Chinese companies to produce a great product with an affordable price tag, if they manage to do that, they may have a chance of retaining their position as at the top.
