As we have already reported, Samsung will release its next flagship- the Galaxy S6 by March next year.
At the time of its launch, the Galaxy S5 boasted of top-of-the-rack specs: from the Super AMOLED display, the Snapdragon 801 Quadcore processor, 16-MP primary camera and add-ons like the IR Blaster, the Heart Rate Monitor and the Fingerprint Sensor.
Even though some of these features were dismissed for being gimmicky, they did pique interest at the time and we will expect some top notch features from the successor, the Galaxy S6. Even though not too many parted with their hard earned cash for the faux leather and faux chrome S5, Samsung will be hoping that their next flagship drums up enough interest and support to reverse their flagging fortunes.
Here is a preview of the Samsung Galaxy S6, and here is our review of the Samsung Galaxy S5 but if you want to find out the differences in numbers, read on...
One of the most sought-for modifications that the S6 is expected to sport is the new QHD Super AMOLED display in the Galaxy S5.
The QHD will let users read texts easily compared to the standard Super AMOLED with sharper videos and pages that wouldn’t blur when zoomed in. The Galaxy S6 is also expected to bear a plastic OLED screen which, like in the Galaxy Note 4 Edge, will allow the screen to bend either fully or around the edges. More on that here:
Samsung Galaxy S6 to sport flexible display?
The Galaxy S6 is sure to be released with an all-metal frame, which being more attractive and sleek, will provide additional durability to the phone. For smartphone users who prefer a metal finish over the regular plastic, the Galaxy S6 would be a smart move.
A possible shift to the 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor would allow the S6 to operate at memory bandwidth upto 30 GB/s as against the 14 GB/s of the S5. A possible 4GB RAM thanks to the new Android Lollipop would possibly hand users the fastest Samsung phone ever.
The possibility that the Galaxy S6 is expected to be priced around the same as the Galaxy S5 would be a relief to users who can’t wait to get their hands around the phone. So far, the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S5 have been sold in the same price band.
Samsung should continue the trend given its ambition of regaining 15% profitability in the long run.
