Samsung has seen an incredible growth with its Android range of devices over the years. But things have really changed in the past few months, especially, after the failure of the Samsung Galaxy S5, which went on sale in the beginning of 2014.
Despite being a killer phone, sales were below projections. Samsung's profits declined when they should be steady.
Weeks ago, the company launched two new premium phones - the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4 - both catering to the upper segment of the market. Now, it looks like Samsung has already started preparing to launch the Galaxy S6 in the new few months.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been leaked under a new ‘Project Zero' codename, which hints at something significant is going to happen next year.
According to insider sources, the Galaxy S6 is already in development at Samsung's South Korean HQ. The unnamed insiders have suggested (via Sam Mobile): "Samsung is developing its next-generation flagship device from scratch, with an entirely new vision."
The report also added, "Project Zero is an indication that Samsung is trying to achieve something unique and different with the Galaxy S6."
Although exact specs and features aren't clear for the time being, the forthcoming flagship may be entirely conceived from scratch.
Samsung already needs a new perspective in respect of its premium range. The company could look into premium designs that found on Apple's iPhone and HTC's One range of handsets.
As of now, it is unknown when exactly Samsung wishes to launch the Galaxy S6. The last two phones under the Galaxy S range were launched in Q1, followed by the retail availability in April.
Recent S6 rumors have pointed to the device landing during March with 4K display, 4GB of RAM, Snapdragon 810 CPU, Android 5.0 Lollipop and a 20MP rear-facing camera.
