Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s next flagship smartphone Galaxy S6 is still several months away from launch, and there has been no official word about it. But we have started seeing concept renderings of the phone. Last week, we saw a unique Galaxy S6 concept with premium unibody chassis, non-removable back cover and Gear VR headset compatibility.
Galaxy S6 concept shows thin bezels
Now YouTube user Jermaine Smit has come up with a new concept video. Smit has unveiled the concept of Galaxy S6 as well as Galaxy S6 Edge that has curved display. Both devices have 20-megapixel main camera, 4K video recording and dual LED flash. The devices feature 2K AMOLED display with 554ppi pixel density, soft texture body and 2980mAh battery. Smit shows both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in black and white colors.
Smit’s video imagines the Galaxy S6 with a huge screen but razor-thin bezels. It looks more like LG G3 with Samsung brand name and a physical home button. Notably, the edge display on Smit’s S6 Edge seems to be less pronounced than the curved display of the recently launched Galaxy Note Edge. What’s more, there have been rumors that the Galaxy S6 will feature dual-edge display.
When is Galaxy S6 coming
Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S6 at the Mobile World Congress in March 2015. Reports suggest that the device will go on sale just days after the announcement as the Korean electronics giant rushes to stabilize its falling sales. Mass production of the device is expected to begin in February. Other reports have also claimed that Samsung might bring the Galaxy S6 sooner than expected to counter the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
The Korean electronics giant is reportedly developing the Galaxy S6 under the Project Zero. The device is rumored to feature 5.2-inch Quad HD display, 20MP main camera, 3.7-MP front snapper, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 with 64-bit architecture, 4GB RAM, 3,300mAh battery and the newest Android Lollipop. The phone will likely come with UFS 2.0 memory that allows up to 1.2GB per second data transfer and saves power
