With the dust finally settling down on the previously released Samsung Galaxy S5, all eyes are now set on whether the handset will have an equally good, if not better, successor sometime later this year. And before you know it, we have our first, somewhat major piece of leak regarding the new smartphone.
The Galaxy S6 is currently far away from anything tangible, but there is a slight possibility that the handset could be revealed at the MWC 2015. Though the rumoured handset has appeared on the web more than once in the last year, new details for the handset have surfaced again.
Recently, the tentative design of the Samsung Galaxy S6 was tipped off by a case maker, apart from another report that claims that the South Korean tech company is also working on removing unnecessary bloatware for its proprietary TouchWiz UI for the next Galaxy in line.
This was also after the Korean media, citing a Samsung executive, reported that the Galaxy S6 will be an "innovative premium handset."
Popular handset case maker Spigen, known for listing cases of yet-to-be-announced flagships (most recently, the iPhone 6), has generated excitement with its early listing of Galaxy S6 cases ahead of the company actually acknowledging the existence of the smartphone, leave alone the official launch.
Apparently, the case maker has even listed the cases for the Galaxy S6 on Amazon, going by a Phonearena report. Spigen case listed on Amazon shows off the cases that are mounted on the yet-to-be-confirmed Samsung Galaxy 6. However, the front panel is not really visible; although it reminds you of the Galaxy S5.
As far as the back panel is concerned, the Spigen listing for the Galaxy S6 case shows the rear camera accompanied by the dual-LED flash located on the right side. Interestingly, it's not below the camera as we have already seen in Samsung Galaxy S5. But that's all we know as of now.
Elsewhere, a new Sammobile report claimed that Samsung is looking to remove add-on features from its TouchWiz UI in order to make it lighter. Also, the new changes are being incorporated so that the features can be downloaded separately as apps.
The report came as a follow-up to an earlier report that talked about how Samsung was set to remove those much detested and unnecessary apps from the TouchWiz UI. This would then go on to reduce the capacity of the system's memory and would improve its function by strengthening its core features.
The report further claimed that Samsung apps such as Story Album, S Translator, and S Voice will be removed for the TouchWiz UI. And those who still want a piece of those apps can download them. The report further said that "S Health and other such selling points will most probably stay on as pre-loaded apps."
The upcoming Galaxy S6, as we stated earlier, is still far away from anything confirmed. However, leaks and rumours making their way each week only make our belief stronger that we will indeed get to see the smartphone before the end of the year. A release should follow in the fall.
Stay tuned for more updates!
