It is just less than a month left for the Mobile World Congress where Samsung will unveil its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and like every year the rumour mills are churning out new buzz around the two phones. A report by Sammobile has confirmed once again that the device will come with an Edge screen on both sides.
Citing some internal sources, the report further adds that the Edge screens will be 30 to 50 percent less curved than the Edge display on the Galaxy Note Edge.The reason behind this is the smaller size of the device and the volume and power buttons on the sides. The curves on both sides will be uniform.
Both S6 and S6 Edge are expected to come with a camera module of the same colour as the phone, as seen in its previous premium line. The devices will be available in four different colour choices. “Also, both the back and front of the device will exactly the same colour – that means both sides will have the same finish, a good hint that we’re looking at an all-metal (and possibly glass) design,” adds the report.
In terms of specs , the Galaxy S6 may feature an Ultra HD 4k display, 4GB RAM and a 20MP camera. An initial specs list for S6 said that the device would have a 5.3-inch 4K AMOLED display, a 64-bit Exynos 7420 or Snapdragon 810 processor depending on the country, 5 megapixel front camera, and Broadcom’s new sensor chip.
Samsung is also expected to release the Galaxy S6 with Exynos 7 and LTE. Initially, Samsung was testing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, but it was found to cause over heating, which made Samsung drop the idea of using the Snapdragon 810 SoC. Qualcomm has agreed to rework the Snapdragon 810 SoC for Samsung’s flagship device.
Another report last week had revealed that the 32GB Galaxy S6 variant is likely to be priced at 749 euros that is approximately Rs 53,000, 64GB at 849 euros which comes to approximately Rs 62,000 and and 128GB version to cost 949 euros (approx. Rs 69,300). The 32GB Galaxy S6 Edge is likely to be priced at 849 euros that is about Rs 59,500, 64GB version at 949 euros (approx. Rs 66,400) and 128GB variant at 1049 euros which comes to Rs 73,300.
