According to the latest reports, Samsung will showcase the Galaxy S6 and its variant during CES 2015. The devices will be showcased only to selected partners and not to consumers.
The Galaxy S6 is expected to feature a QHD Super AMOLED display, Android 5.0 Lollipop, an Exynos 7420 SoC or a Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and LTE Cat. 9/10 connectivity. Multiple prototypes of the Galaxy S6 have surfaced through AnTuTu benchmark, one with a 16-megapixel camera, and the other with a 20-megapixel camera.
Images of a purported S6 had appeared on the blog, yesterday. While the authenticity of the images can’t be confirmed, they do show a Samsung-esque design to an all-metal chassis. There’s a centrally positioned cut out for the camera and a slot at the bottom, potentially to minimize the metal case’s interference with a wireless signal.
SamMobile earlier reported that the Samsung will most probably announce their next-generation flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6 sometime in the first or second quarter of 2015. Samsung is building the Galaxy S6, codenamed as Project Zero, from scratch with a metal build, just like the Galaxy Note 4.
A Samsung employee, whose identity has been confirmed by a Reddit Moderator, has confirmed our reports about the Galaxy S6. According to the conversation on Reddit, it seems that Samsung is testing at least three variants of the Galaxy S6, one with a one-sided curved edge display, another with a dual-sided curved edge display, and one more with a normal display.
