Samsung is making Galaxy S6 the next generation smartphone for the next year. Samsung wants to give another flash in this flagship catgory with S6. Samsung Galaxy S6 might have already been spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark. The numbers shown in the leaked screenshot show that the Samsung Galaxy S6 may contain a 5.6-inch display with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. And if the screenshot is correct, it appears that Samsung will make use of the 64-bit architecture. The S6 might ship with the 1.8 GHz octacore Exynos 7420 CPU. Korean devices could feature an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage. The S6 may have a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. There have been reports that Qualcomm is having performance issues on the Snapdragon 810, which may delay the launch of several flagship devices–including the Qualcomm variant of Samsung Galaxy S6. It remains unknown when exactly we can expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be released. The most likely date, however, is early March during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Samsung Galaxy S6 release date and price
There`s no official word on when the Samsung Galaxy S6 might launch, but Samsung has a yearly product cycle which it rarely deviates far from.
In fact from the Samsung Galaxy S2 onwards the company has always announced its phones at or close to MWC, and we`re certain the same will hold true for the Galaxy S6.
2015`s MWC is set to take place between March 2 and March 5, so it`s likely that we`ll see the Samsung Galaxy S6 sometime around then. Possibly not at the show itself but perhaps at a press conference a day or two before it starts, much like Samsung did for the Galaxy Note 4 launch before IFA 2014.
However, that`s not when it will actually go on sale. The Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5 both launched in April, of 2013 and 2014 respectively, so there`s a good chance that you`ll be able to buy the Samsung Galaxy S6 from April 2015.
There are rumors suggesting Samsung may be a little quicker to market with the Galaxy S6 though, with South Korean news outlet Daum claiming it`ll ship the Galaxy S6 in the same month as it`s announced – March 2015.
There`s no real information on what the Samsung Galaxy S6 might cost either, but this is a flagship phone we`re talking about.
This means it`s not likely to be any cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S5, which at launch sold for £579 (around $972 / AU$1048) SIM free.
Given that the specs will presumably be better and that it may even have a premium build for once it`s possible that it could be even more expensive, but we`d be surprised if Samsung went much higher than £600 / $1000 / AU$1100
