With the Galaxy Note 4 now on sale, the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date, for obvious reasons, is the next-thing in the tech industry. Although not expected to launch during the crucial holiday season, a plethora of rumors have already started to make buzz online.
This week it's been tipped that Samsung has already started work on the next-gen handset under the Galaxy S series. It's also suggested that the successor to the Galaxy S5, codenamed ‘Project Zero', is expected to be a super premium handset. The phone could flaunt an all-new design, and a powerful, octa-core processor.
For several years, Samsung has been selling more smartphones than Apple or any other big-ticket vendor for that matter. New models are bound to arrive in 2015. However, the Galaxy S6's success is crucial for the brand.
The South Korean giant Samsung, which quickly eclipsed Nokia to become the largest handset vendor in 2011, may be losing touch with its brand identity and its core customer base. The reason: sales of the Galaxy S5 have been rather slow.
Despite being efficient in churning out devices, as per consumer needs and market demand, the company has unable to live up to its reputation. Analysts, however, believe that Samsung's newly adopted strategy will bear fruit, backed by strong line-up of devices.
The Galaxy S6, which could arrive sometime in March 2015, is said to be designed from scratch. As of now, Samsung has yet to indicate any clue, as far as the release date of the Galaxy S6 is concerned.
With MWC 2015 to be held between March 2 and 5, we would expect Samsung to release the Galaxy S6 at the largest tech show.
In the meanwhile, we've rounded up all the leaking information about the Samsung Galaxy S6.
In terms of design, there are a lot of things rumored for the Galaxy S6. Notably, industry insiders believe that the Galaxy S6 will flaunt a similar design to the Galaxy Note 4 Edge. But that's just speculation at this point.
Some "unnamed" sources believe that the Galaxy S6 will come with a QHD screen, just like the Galaxy Note 4. At the time of writing this story, the exact release display size is still a mystery.
In terms of camera, the Galaxy S6 is rumored to get a 20MP rear-facing camera with OIS feature. The company is still undecided whether to use a 16MP or a 20MP camera sensor. The phone is also tipped to get a 5MP shooter for video calls.
Apparently, Galaxy S6 will be powered by an Exynos 7420 processor (64-bit). It will get newly developed modem, the Exynos Modem 333 (model SS333). A Snapdragon 810 Quad-Core CPU is likely to make its way to the Galaxy S6, along with 3 or 4 GB of RAM.
Since the Note 4 is going to get Android 5.0 Lollipop coming soon, the Galaxy S6 will likely simply come with Android's latest mobile OS.
The rumor mill currently indicates that the Galaxy S5 could be made available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage capacities, similar to what Apple did with its iPhone line-up.
