With Samsung Electronics having released the Galaxy Note 4 a couple of months ago, attention has now fallen on its upcoming flagship dubbed as the Galaxy S6. Expectations on the Galaxy S5 successor are huge and the South Korean giant is very likely to bring drastic change to its new device.
There are conflicting reports on the release date of the Galaxy S6 though Samsung hasn't uttered a word on it. It is reported that the device could be unveiled in February, 1015 before launching it a few weeks later. There were also speculations that the device could be announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress to be held from 2 to 5 March, 2015, in Barcelona, Spain.
Reports on the Galaxy S5 release date is not confirmed though.
It seems like Samsung has learned from the mistake it made in the current flagship smartphone – Galaxy S5 – as it doesn't have any significant change from its predecessor, Galaxy S4. The response on the device was poor and it was reflected in the earnings of the company with the profit from mobile division falling 73.9 percent to 1.75 trillion won ($1.6 billion) in the third quarter of 2014.
Now, reports are doing the rounds that the upcoming Galaxy S6 will be a different smartphone all together with drastic change from the Galaxy S5. The company has reportedly given a unique codename - Project Zero – for the new device, hinting that it could be very different from other smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to have several features much superior to the ones seen in the Galaxy S5. It is expected to sport a display bigger than its predecessor with 1440 x 2560 screen resolution (554ppi). One can't rule out a 3840x2160 display resolution too, as the company had earlier said that such technology could be a reality in 2015. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 / Exynos 7420 processor and run on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
