Samsung is about to release its latest flagship the Samsung Galaxy S6. Many people are expecting some big changes in the upcoming flagship smart phone as Samsung really needs to kick up a notch. Apple sold millions of iPhone 6 and the main reason was that they made the phone a little bigger.
People already knew the Apple made quality products, but those products were coming in really small sizes and this is a time where people want giant phones. So Apple ended up converted many Android users to Apple users in the last year. Samsung made the same devices every year and made them a little bigger and a little faster, but this time around things are totally different. Apple is winning by miles and Samsung has to come up with a device that will reestablish the user’s trust in Samsung.
Samsung is going to release its new flagship phone in the upcoming Mobile World Congress trade show. This conference will be held in Barcelona and it will start on the 1st March. People are expecting that Samsung will release two phones which could be the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge. So here are just some of the expected features that might be coming in the new Galaxy S6:
1. Samsung Will Wave Goodbye To Snapdragon
Yes, you heard it right. Samsung was using the Snapdragon processors for quite some time now, but it is time to let go of the past. People were expecting that the new Galaxy S6 would have the latest Snapdragon processor, which is the Snapdragon 810. But this is not true as Samsung will use the Exynos processor for future devices.
The new Samsung flagship phone will be a 64-bit phone and it will indeed have an Exynos processor onboard. People were having overheating problem with the Snapdragon processors. The Galaxy S4 and S5 users complained that whenever they were multitasking or even playing games, they had to put the devices down for a second so that their device could cool down and so that their hands stop burning.
The new Exynos processors are said to be faster than the Snapdragon processors and they also consume less battery when compared with the Snapdragon processors.
2. The Phone Will Have A Great Design
The case makers have started making the Galaxy S6 cases so that they can sell the cases when people buy the phones. There are many leaked photos and specifications of the phone on the internet and the case makers have used those pictures to come up with the cases.
Samsung should ban all case makers and tell them to wait for the official release just like Apple did. Apple threatened that they would stop selling third party case maker’s cases in their official shops and thus those companies will now wait for the official release of the iPhone 7. When we look at the leaked photos we see a very beautiful phone. The phone will have a metal frame which is very similar to the Galaxy Note 4.
The previous Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4 and S5 were all made up of plastic and it didn’t give the phone a premium look. Now the phone is going to look even better. Inside reports are suggesting that this new phone will be the best designed phone in the history as it will be sturdier and it will be resistant to damage. The phone will also come with a NFC chip.
3. Quad HD Display
We are expecting that the phone is going to have a Quad HD screen because Samsung already had the Quad HD screen in the Galaxy Note 4. The phone screen size is expected to be 5.1 inches, which is the same when compared with the Galaxy S5.
Some websites are suggesting the size of the screen has been decreased to 4.9 inches, but we will have to wait and see as in the upcoming weeks it will all be cleared.
4. 20 MP Back Camera
Samsung has always been able to produce best camera results. Their cameras are built within the company and they do a lot of work on their cameras. The company integrated a 16 megapixel camera in the Galaxy S5 which took really good pictures.
Now Samsung is stepping up its game once again by putting in a 20MP camera in the Galaxy S6. When we looked at the leaked photos of the phone, we saw that the phone had a large camera module. The new camera is tipped to take good pictures in low light situations.
5. Samsung Might Bring In Back Cover Accessories
Samsung claims that its Galaxy phones are all around lifestyle phones. This means that these phones can help in every type of situation. We started hearing rumors in the start of the year that Samsung might be planning to bring in special back cover accessories.
These back cover accessories will help the user and it will bring new functions to the Galaxy S6. These new accessories might be able to help you in measuring your blood sugar if you are a diabetic patient. Another accessory might help you with reading new notifications on your phone.
Another accessory will help you in syncing with your fitness machine. It will then provide some new information on your workout and then it will sync with S health. Some reports are suggesting that Samsung are ready to make a cover that will help you enhance your 20MP camera. Third party special lenses could be used to enhance the camera result.
6. Improved Software
This time around the users will get a lighter version of the TouchWiz. People are excited about a new software because the software in the S5 and the S4 looked exactly the same. It is rumored that Samsung are looking to give their users a pure experience of the Android software and are willing to dial back their TouchWiz software.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop looks great on the Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 5 and people were waiting for Samsung so that their users too can have a more pure Android experience. It is also rumored that the company will now allow the users to download new software features on their own and it will not have them preinstalled on their devices. So now with a lighter TouchWiz software, the phone is expected to run faster and smoother.
Pocket lint are suggesting that the price of the phone is not going to change and will stay somewhat similar to the Galaxy S5’s price. The Galaxy S5 cost us £579 without the SIM. And even if Samsung are putting in things that none of us are expecting and the phone eventually happens to blow our minds, then we still can expect a price of around £600. Another internet leak suggested that the 32GB model of the phone could cost us €749.
According to latest rumors on the internet, the Galaxy S6 will have not have a very big battery. The battery will only be 2550mAh according to the rumors. Although the battery is not very big, it is rumored that it will come with significant power saving features. These features will prolong the battery’s life. It is also rumored that you will get 4 hours worth of use with just 10 minutes of charging.
9. Improved Fingerprint Sensor
The Galaxy Note 4 came with a built-in fingerprint sensor. The sensor was built in the home button. The Note 4 fingerprint sensor was miles better than the Galaxy S5 sensor. There is still room for improvement and we are hoping that the new Galaxy S6 will remove all kinds of issues from the new fingerprint sensor.
10. New Models Rumored To Have Lots Of Storage
The Galaxy Note 4 had 32GB of internal storage. It also supported micro SD cards up to 128GB. The new Galaxy S6 is rumored to have three models. These models are rumored to have 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of internal storage spaces.
