Samsung Galaxy S series has been one of the most successful Samsung devices of all time. The Galaxy S phones have always been one of the most anticipated devices and are always loaded with plethora of features and are powered by the latest hardware.
Now with the 6th version in production, Samsung is all set to give a tough competition to the other high end flagship devices with its Galaxy S6.
In the past, Samsung has unveiled its next flagship smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in March with the handset going on sale the following month in April. But for the Galaxy S6, it is rumored that Samsung will be bringing the release date forward a month, meaning that the new device is expected to be officially announced and become available in stores in the same month.
The internet is already loaded with rumors about what to expect in the new iteration of Galaxy S series and we’ll tell you why you should wait for the Galaxy S6.
1. 64-Bit processor: Welcome the future of mobile devices
A 64-bit processor is guaranteed and we will surely get two versions of Samsung Galaxy S flagship again. One Snapdragon powered version for the US market and another with an Octa-core Exynos chipset for the international market to power what we hope will be Android 5.0 with a refined version of TouchWiz.
The US version will likely come with the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, depending on when it will be commercially available. The Snapdragon 810 may still be a bit too far away for mass production.
3 GB of RAM seems certain but considering that the next Android version supports upto 4GB of RAM, let’s wait and see what Samsung packs within its flagship device. The International version will be powered by the octa-core Exynos chipset, most probably the new Exynos 7420, a 64-bit chipset with four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores. The SoC is believed to pack the Korean tech giant’s first in-house modem, the Exynos Modem 333, which also offers LTE connectivity.
2. For the love of Super AMOLED screen
It seems perfectly plausible that the Galaxy S6 will use a Super AMOLED screen- Samsung’s own display technology. As for size, the trend is for new models to have bigger displays so with the Galaxy S5 at 5.1”, the Galaxy S6 could be as large as 5.5”, matching the iPhone 6 Plus or close to 6” like Nexus 6 or somewhere in-between.
The Galaxy S6 will most probably pack a Qad HD resolution screen (1440 x 2560 pixels) but there is a possibility that it may come with a 4K screen.
3. Class Leading Camera With OIS
The device’s rear camera will reportedly either be the same 16-megapixel shooter with OIS featured in the Galaxy Note 4 with some advancements or a new 20-megapixel, with the front serving up a 5-megapixel shooter.
4. Premium Design and build
The Samsung Galaxy S5 got slammed in reviews for its plastic build quality like the previous generations of Galaxy series and this is something which should be improved when it comes to the Galaxy S6. Most probably, Samsung will continue the metal design used by its Galaxy Alpha in the Galaxy S6.
5. Android 5.0 with a flavour of TouchWiz
The TouchWiz layer on top of Android OS surely add lot of bloatware which might slower down the performance by some percent but it also contains some very useful features which the stock android version fails to provide.
You can create folders, arrange icons in a custom order and also hide apps. The lock screen is a less unique part of the experience and exhibits pretty much the same features as stock Android but the way it just integrates with the rest of TouchWiz is simply amazing. It also packs features like Multi-windows, Motion Controls, Action Memo etc. and their greatest benefit is offering those features without the need for third-party solutions.
That’s all folks from our side. We would love to know what you think about the upcoming Galaxy S6. Is there anything except the above mentioned features that you would want Samsung to bake into their upcoming flagship device? Now is the time to speak your thoughts.
