Hype around Samsung Electronics' upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6, is beginning to gain momentum with its release date drawing closer. Now, it is reported that the South Korean electronics giant will come up with two variants of Galaxy S6 in the line of Galaxy Note 4.
Samsung will launch two variants of Galaxy S6 - regular and 'Edge' – just like the Galaxy Note 4 that was released last year, according to a report by Business Insider. It went on to claim that the first model will be made of metal, though not sure if it will have a unibody metal design or just metal accents and the second model to have a curved screen like that of Galaxy Note Edge.
Interestingly, Samsung introduced curved screen in Galaxy Note Edge and experimented with metal in the Galaxy Alpha last year, and a source reportedly told Business Insider that the move was to test them in the market before used in the Galaxy S6.
According to reports, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 at the Mobile World Congress 2015 (MWC 2015) in March before releasing it a few weeks later, probably in April.
Samsung is tight-lipped on the Galaxy S6, codenamed "Project Zero," but several features of the device have been leaked over the last few weeks. Mobifo (via SamMobile) reported citing AnTuTu benchmark that the Galaxy S6 would sport a qHD screen with 1,440x2,560 pixels, 15.9mp camera, octa-core 64-bit processor and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
However, another report by Chinese website CNMO (via Phone Arena) citing AnTuTu benchmark claimed that Samsung's upcoming device would come have a 5.5-inch display with 1,440x2,560 pixels, powered by Exynos 7420 processor, run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, come packed with 32GB of internal memory and 3GB RAM, and house a 20mp main camera and 5mp front snapper.
