Now that Samsung has announced this year’s major device, the Galaxy Note 4, concept designers have turned their focus to the next flagship, the Galaxy S6. Though official launch of the device is several months away, a new render of the Galaxy S6 has popped up online. And it has borrowed heavily from the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 4.
Galaxy S6: a new concept after a long time
This concept was designed by Hasan Kaymak. The rendering shows the Galaxy S6 without the typical Samsung Home button. According to Concept Phones, the Home button has been replaced with a different mechanism, most likely a fingerprint sensor or a speaker grill. It has very thin bezels and a metal chassis. The Galaxy S6 is widely expected to come with metal body, especially after Samsung released the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4.
There is no official word on this, but there have been plenty of rumors around the Galaxy S6. Users have pretty high expectations from the new phone, especially after the not-so-good performance of the Galaxy S5. The smartphone is rumored to come with 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2650 resolution and pixel density of 442ppi. However, some believe it may sport a 4K display with 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution. Samsung has already said that the 4K display is a possibility in 2015.
Galaxy S6 to get a powerful processor
Samsung fans hope to see at least 20-megapixel main camera in the Galaxy S6 as Sony’s flagship Xperia Z line has upward of 20MP snapper. Moreover, PCAdvisor says the Galaxy S6 will run a very powerful processor, probably Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 or 810. The Snapdragon 808 is a 64-bit, six-core processor supporting 2K display. Snapdragon 810 has eight cores with 64-bit architecture and 4K display support.
The Galaxy S6 is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2015. The Korean company has historically launched its new Galaxy S line phones at the Mobile World Congress. The next MWC will kick off on March 2, 2015.
