Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 is making a lot of buzz around the world. Why shouldn’t it? It’s the first Galaxy S series phone that will come in 2 variants that will be available globally. We are not talking about the difference processors. Samsung is launching the Galaxy S6 in 2 variants. The simple variant and the Edge variant but as compared to the Galaxy Note Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge will have edged screen on both left and right sides. Believe it or not, even though the phone doesn’t look much of a big enhancement, I’m really looking forward to and this is coming from a loyal Sony user.
So far we already know that the phone will be available in Exynos as well as a Snapdragon variant.
There have been a lot of knock-ups of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge making rounds on the internet, however, most of them are not legit. Lucky for you, we have our hands on some of the latest photos that are convincing enough that the phone just might be the best Galaxy till date. Yes, that means better than the legendary Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III. Before we go on writing about the things we are expecting from the Galaxy S6. Let us take a look at the pictures.
Some of the pictures are revealing that the phone might be uni-body. You should also note out that the micro-USB port is exposed, that clearly means that the phone does not have any IP certification which is kind of a let down. Moving on, the screen size seems 5.1/5.0 inches but the bezels have been reduced greatly, this was a huge let-down with the Galaxy S5. We can also note that the headphone jack is now placed on the bottom along with the micro-USB jack. On the back, we supposedly a 20 megapixel camera with the heart rate sensor/flash next to it. The last image gives us the glimpse of both variants placed next to each other. The phones are expected to be announced on 1st March, just 2 days from now and everyone is really excited. We have made a list of expectations and we really hope Samsung doesn’t disappoint us this time.
A Metal Unibody
Let’s just admit it, we are all getting tired by the all plastic feel of Samsung Galaxy S series. Yes, the Galaxy A series did a really good job with metal body but the specs weren’t good enough. Yes, the Note 4 did come with a metal frame but having an all metal unibody is just an amazing thing to have in a phone. According to some of the pictures we have posted earlier, it does look like that we will get getting an all metal unibody.
By no FHD screens are pretty much outdated, though QHD screens don’t make a big difference on screen sizes we are normally getting on our phones, people are always wanting the best. We hope that like Galaxy Note 4, Samsung introduces the QHD screen in the upcoming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge or some loyal consumers are going to be furious.
A Better Fingerprint Sensor
Yes, the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S5 was an amazing addition but it wasn’t the best one. We believed that the fingerprint sensor wasn’t as implemented throughout the phone. With the Galaxy S6 on its way, we hope that the fingerprint is properly implemented and offers functionality all across the phone. We are also hoping that Samsung introduces Samsung Pay. We have already seen that feature in Apple’s iPhone. Here’s hoping Samsung tops that feature for us.
More Optimised TouchWiz
The only reason I shifted away from Samsung is Touchwiz. Let’s just face it, we all know that TouchWiz is one of the most featured pack aftermarket skins. But the main question is; do we really need those features? Well, most of them, we don’t. Few weeks ago, rumours started making round on the internet saying that the upcoming Galaxy S6 and all the other Galaxy phones will have a minimal amount of TouchWiz. This means there be a lot less bloatware than there is already present. Rumours also indicated that Samsung will finally allow the users to remove the bloatware without having to root it.
That’s it, folks. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be making an official apperance in less than 2 days. We are hoping Samsung makes us fall in love with both the devices. Stay tuned for the entire MWC coverage on Samsung as well as other OEMs.
