Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s Galaxy S5 received mixed response from consumers as well as analysts. Now Samsung enthusiasts are looking ahead to the Galaxy S6 to deliver the wow factor that its predecessor clearly lacked. The device is unlikely to be released until next year as the Korean electronics giant gears up to launch another flagship phablet Galaxy Note 4 later this year. But it hasn’t stopped concept designers and fans to come up with attractive designs.
Galaxy S6 with ‘curves that matter’
One such rendering is from Jermaine Smit. It suggests a possible direction Samsung could go with its Galaxy S6. Smit’s design shows “curves that matter.” It has the device with slim bezels and curved display, 4GB RAM, and 64-bit Exynos 5433 chipset. Weighing just 162g, the device comes in black, blue, red and white colors. The concept shows the Galaxy S6 running Android 4.5. However, the OS may change given the upcoming release of Android L.
The Galaxy S6 shown in this concept video boasts of 20MP main camera with Optical Image Stabilization and dual-LED flash. The camera upgrade looks realistic given the Galaxy S5 already has 16MP main shooter. The device seems to have a glass back, which is a departure from Samsung’s tradition of using plastic. There has been a lot of chatter that the Korean company might switch to a metal casing with the Galaxy S6.
High expectations from Galaxy S6
Consumers have a long wish list for the upcoming device. Fans of the Galaxy series are expecting a large QHD display at the very least. Samsung has to do something exceptional with the Galaxy S6 to make the device stand out from the crowd. Latest reports indicate that the device will feature a 1440 x 2650 Quad HD screen with 442ppi. Rumors suggest that the upcoming device may feature an octa-core processor.
We are likely to see a lot new concept designs as the release date approaches. Jermaine’s rendering is definitely a good start.
