Samsung Electronics is tight-lipped on the release date and specifications of its upcoming flagship smartphone dubbed as the Galaxy S6 and it is very likely to keep the secrecy till the device is officially launched, but interestingly, major features of the product have been leaked over the last few weeks.

The South Korean electronics giant is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 in the first quarter of 2015, and it won't come as a surprise if it is announced at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015) event to be held from 2 to 5 March, 2015. However, official release date of the device is still not known.

Not much is known about the Galaxy S6 but if one is to go by the recent reports, it may have significant change over its predecessor, the Galaxy S5. The device's codename - Project Zero – that was leaked earlier has given a clear hint that it would be very different from other smartphones.

The Galaxy S6 will take on the recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and the HTC One (M9) is also likely to be launched at around the same time. So, Samsung is expected to bring drastic change to Galaxy S6 with an aim to beat its rivals in the smartphone market.

According to reports, Samsung's upcoming smartphone may sport a 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 quad HD screen (554ppi) or a 3840x2160 display resolution. The device is expected to have a new look, possibly a curved display, and full metal body.

Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or Exynos 7420 processor, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and come packed with 32/64/128GB internal memory. It will house 4GB RAM, a 21MP main camera and 6MP front snapper, and 4000 mAh battery, according to a report by Christian Today
