As Samsung gears up for its Galaxy S6 launch, every other smartphone manufacturer will be watching with a close eye. The annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) is only a week away, more leaks and rumors about the purported device are emerging.
Samsung at MWC is expected to announce its much-awaited Galaxy S6. Rumors claim that the Galaxy S6 is likely to feature a metal body. Also, possibly an "Edge" version of the handset would be showcased too.
After initial teasers went live on Twitter later last week, we're now starting to see more details come to light. The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been shown off for the first time on Twitter by US telecom provider T-Mobile's CEO John Legere. Even though T-Mobile has confirmed that they will carry the device, we're still clueless about the phone's native specifications and features.
Today though we have seen an image of the Galaxy S6 that somewhat looks like the Galaxy Note Edge - possibly, on both the sides of the handset. The dark grey metal back looks refreshing and is a huge step above the cheap plastic back.
All said and done, things are starting to heat up as the March 1st announcement nears, and we'll probably know all the details soon enough. The Samsung Galaxy S6 should come to India in the third week of March 2015. As far its retail price is concerned, the Galaxy S6 could be priced upwards of around Rs. 53,500, same as the Apple iPhone 6.
The Galaxy S6 will feature a 5.1-inch QHD display. It is powered by a 64-bit Exynos 7 SoC, paired with 3 GB of fast DDR4 RAM, and 32 GB or 64 GB or 128GB of storage, which can be expanded via microSD card slot.
In terms of imaging, there will be a 20 MP rear camera that will have a dual LED flash, and a 5MP front-facing camera. It could probably come with a smaller 2600mAh battery. The phone will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
