If Sony is coming up with the Xperia Z4 early next year, the South Korean giant Samsung has its Galaxy S6 on its way. The two giants will once again fight to conquer the top place in 2015.
The flagship Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone has been on sale for a while now. In between, a number of high-end handsets got launched, making the Galaxy S5 just an average piece of tech. Many of you might not be interested in the Galaxy S5 at all, after the arrival of the Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6. So it's time to look forward to the successor to the Galaxy S5 - Samsung Galaxy S6.
Weeks ago we had heard that Samsung was planning to unveil the Galaxy S6 sometime in early 2015. Now, new rumors related to the Galaxy S6 have once again started to spread like a wildfire.
Samsung needs to do a lot to make the Galaxy S6 successful. Well if reports have anything to go by, Samsung could the first flagship phone to get a display with 4k resolution and the forthcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor.
According to Chinese blog MyDrivers (via Android Headlines), the Galaxy S6 is likely to come with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED 4K (3840×2160 pixels) display, a step up from the 2K screen found on the Note 4. This isn't surprising at all, as a number of manufacturers, including LG, might launch their respective premium phones with 4K displays.
In addition to a super high resolution screen, the Galaxy S6 is expected to be powered by the next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU, paired with 4GB of RAM. Rumors claim the Snapdragon 810 chipset will rival Apple's A8 chipset. However, other reports rugged that the Galaxy S6 might be powered by the next-gen Exynos chipset.
Other incremental rumors about the Galaxy S6 include a full metal chassis. Samsung is expected to announce a couple of more premium phones under its A-series with full metal casing before the launch of the Galaxy S6.
The Samsung-made Galaxy S6 is also rumored to run Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop with updated TouchWiz user interface (UI). At the same time, the smartphone will sport a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) feature.
The Galaxy S6 is said to unveil at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. As of now, it's too early to speculate about Samsung's next-big thing.
Samsung's Big Reveal Set For MWC 2015
Samsung is under high pressure after the Galaxy S5 received a lukewarm response. Investors hope that Samsung could change its downward swing with the Galaxy S6.
Samsung and its competitors have been selling high-spec handsets with large screen devices for some time. Until now, everything was fine but now Apple has already jumped into the so called phablet market with its new iPhone range, which includes the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Both phone have been getting great response from users around the globe, including Samsung's very own home market. Perhaps it shows that Koreans have started favoring Apple, which is, of course, a threat to Samsung.
Samsung should come with something bold to stop Apple's growing feet in Asia, in particular. It would be great if Samsung focus more on making the user experience amazing by making genuine changes, instead of coming up with handsets packing in great sounding hardware internals.
