Samsung is one of the leading giants in the smartphone world and has been challenging other smartphones companies whether big or small. The products launched by the Korean manufacturer are competing with the other products in most of the aspects and making people go crazy about them. One of the most anticipated news from Samsung is about the development of Samsung Galaxy S6 a.k.a. Project Zero which is in progress since a couple of months. The Next Big Thing has been in news as well as in online rumors. So let’s take a look on the possible features and specifications of the device.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Features:
Nowadays, almost everyone prefers to be away from wires and charging a smartphone involves wires. But, now Samsung might take this into consideration and come up with wireless charging for its Next Big Thing. This will help the users to charge their smartphones in wireless style.
A New Form Factor
It’s important for Samsung to go beyond metal frame and plastic backs this time. We can expect a new and enticing form factor as the Korean manufacturer is starting over from scratch. We hope they shall do something to ditch the plastic back cover and incorporate a stylish look for the device.
Quad HD Display
According to latest information from our friends at SamMobile, Galaxy S6 will feature Quad HD display (2560×1440) which has already been in Note Edge. Though there is no concrete information on the screen size, we can expect it to be around 5 to 5.5 inches.
There are rumors of Samsung trying its hand on other software, but it doesn’t seem that it will happen for Project Zero. Instead, it is believed that they will stick to Android only. As Android has already announced 5.0 Lollipop, there is no doubt that Samsung Galaxy S6 will sport the latest version of Android.
The device will be powered by a Octa-Core Exynos 7420 processor featuring a 64 bit desktop class architecture which would be backed up by at least 3 GB of RAM to handle 64-bit architecture and everything else smoothly. However, there will also be a Snapdragon 810 chipset variant as expected, which is indeed a 64-bit chip.
If you have a smartphone, which weighs too much, then you know how hard it is to use it. But this smartphone is smart enough to slim itself down to only 160 grams or it can weigh maximum 170 grams. This way it will be easier for the users to make use of it without feeling the weight and it will also be much comfortable on hands as well as pocket.
Long Battery Life
When you are using a smartphone, you would love to work and play with it as long as possible. But, in order to support extensive use, the smartphone needs to have a long lasting battery life. Samsung Galaxy S6 is believed to have 4000 mAh Li-Ion battery, which will help you with elongated usage and talk time for your dear ones.
Good For Selfie Lovers
Selfies will be fun because it has been confirmed that the front camera of the successor will be 5 megapixel with autofocus technology. As far as rear camera is concerned, it can be anything in between 16 megapixel to 20 megapixel. Let’s see what they opt for and how they present their new model to the users.
Iris And Fingerprint Scanners
This smartphone is also expected to feature the Iris as well as fingerprint scanner which will enhance the security of the device and also shorten the unlocking time of the device. We have already seen a heart-rate scanner in Galaxy S5, so it is anticipated that the successor will also feature one.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Specifications:
Operating system will definitely be Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box since it supports 64-bit chip-sets and it is the latest version out there.
The device will be powered using latest Exynos 7420, which is a 64-bit chip with four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores. As anticipated, there will also be a Snapdragon 810 chipset variant, which is indeed a 64-bit chip.
Galaxy S6 will feature a Quad HD (2560×1440) display. Though there is no concrete information on the screen size, we can expect it to be around 5 to 5.5 inches and protected by latest Gorilla Glass 4.
The Korean manufacturer may possibly omit the 16 GB variant and bring 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB variants on the table. In my opinion, it will be good to ditch 16 GB variant as 16 GB is not at all sufficient for flagship smartphones. There is no information about external storage, but we are assuming that it will support Micro SD with 128 GB expansion.
The Next Big Thing is expected to sport 16 megapixel to 20 megapixel primary camera. It has been confirmed that the front camera is 5 megapixel, so selfie lovers can rejoice.
It is anticipated that the device will have 4 GB RAM to process various operations smoothly.
Considering all the power sucking features that the device is going to sport, we are expecting the device to be fueled with 4000 mAh Li-Ion battery.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Price:
The estimations coming from its fans and as spread by rumors suggest the price to be somewhat around 1000 USD. Now, we are waiting for the official announcement from Samsung about its price and this announcement may be in the first quarter of 2015.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Release Date:
There is no official word about Samsung Galaxy S6 release date but we are expecting it to be released in 1st quarter of 2015 during Mobile World Congress which would be held in Barcelona in the month of March.
