Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S6
in the next few months and as always there is
a lot of rumour and conjecture about the
phone. After all, besides the iPhone, it is
perhaps the most hyped phone on the planet.
Now, French blog NoWhereElse has leaked a
metal frame, which it claims to be of the
Samsung Galaxy S6.
While it is quite evident that the phone is not
being launched at the Consumer Electronics
Show in Las Vegas, the phone could be
launched in a month or so. Last year, the
Galaxy S5 was launched at a low-key event at
the Mobile World Congress.
The leaked image indicates that the phone
could have an all-new metal frame which
accommodates for the camera module and the
antennas. It also indicates that the design
language will be different from phones like
Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Alpha, which
have metal frames, but plastic backs.
This new design could be a part of rumoured
Project Zero, which attempts to revamp the
hardware designs found in Samsung's portfolio.
Recent reports have also suggested that the
Galaxy S6 could sport a curved display like the
Galaxy Note Edge.
Recently, the phone was also found on Zauba,
an India based import tracking site.
Additionally, it is rumoured to be armed to the
teeth with cutting edge hardware. This could
include an Exynos 7420 or a Qualcomm
Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a
5.5-inch 2k display. In addition, there are
rumours, which suggest a 20-megapixel
camera on the back with optical image
Software wise, Android Lollipop can be
expected with a new version of Samsung's
TouchWiz user interface.
It is also being suggested that Samsung's
partners will be shown the Galaxy S6 at CES.
