Samsung’s next flagship smartphone Galaxy S6 is set to be launched early next year. The Internet is abuzz with leaks, rumors and speculations about what is hailed as the “iPhone 6 killer.” A new leak shows the Galaxy S6 with a new design and fluorescent color scheme. Spotted by Chinese website IT168.com (via PhoneArena), the Samsung smartphone features a 5.5-inch display.
A colorful Galaxy S6?
The alleged Galaxy S6 appeared on Indian import/export site Zauba. It was shipped from South Korea to New Delhi for testing and evaluation purposes. The phone has a declared value of 35,489 rupees ($557). Actual market price of the device could be different from the declared value on Zauba. The device has also appeared on the Indian site earlier this month.
The Galaxy S6 has been spotted in yellow colored body panel, suggesting that Samsung could use color schemes seen on Lumia and iPhone 5C handsets. The phone sports a unibody aluminum chassis, adding weight to previous claims. Last month, a report claimed that Samsung was developing the Galaxy S6 with unibody aluminum frame under the Project Zero. The Korean electronics giant is building the Galaxy S6 from scratch.
Galaxy S6 to have 20MP camera
Earlier this month, a Galaxy S6 variant was spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark with its detailed specifications. The benchmark listing of the phone’s SM-G925F model showed it running 64-bit Octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and Mali-T760 GPU out-of-the-box. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and features 3GB RAM. Another variant of the Galaxy S6 will reportedly feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. The device is expected to feature 20-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
Samsung is expected to launch a new version of Galaxy S6 with a wraparound display, similar to the Galaxy Note Edge. Rumors suggest that the phone will debut at the Consumer Electronics Show next month or Mobile World Congress in early March. Samsung’s new device will face fierce competition from Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The Galaxy S6 is coming at a time when Samsung’s profits are falling, and the company is losing market share to Chinese and Indian Android vendors.
