According to a recent post on Reddit by a confirmed Samsung employee, the Galaxy S6 may be a surprise to us all.Whereas Samsung has been making modest improvements each year in its ‘S’ line for about five years, supposedly the Korean tech company will be “starting from scratch” with the design of the sixth iteration of the ‘S’ line.
Specs for the new device are standard for an upcoming phone in 2015: 3/4 GB RAM, a better smartphone, a Snapdragon 810, and other mild to moderate improvements. Design is where the real improvements will come from. Tech lovers have long lamented Samsung’s getting lost in the design doldrums and keeping the look of their devices static for the past few years. This year, to show just how ready it is to reconsider its ideas pertaining to design, the S6 project has been named “Project Zero.”
According to SamsungRep2015, the original poster in the thread, there are at least two different prototypes, one with a design like the Note Edge, and another with dual curved edges. He went on to say, “Samsung prototypes a lot and things change extremely rapidly.”
It seems that these are exciting times for Samsung and the tech world. What do you thing about some long-awaited design changes? LEave a comment below and let us know what you think!
