CONSTRUCTION: A LOT OF METAL
The world continues to question when Samsung will abandon polycarbonate (which is “plastic” for you and us) and join companies like Apple, Sony and HTC in providing a main phone with a metallic or stealthy glass physique – and the company doesn’t seem to understand the tip.
There is nothing wrong with the plastic smartphones themselves. Nokia’s latest generation Lumia Home windows The phones are plastic and quite glorious, like the iPhone 5c and the new HTC Desire Eye, however, the Galaxy S variation has always diminished somewhat in the need for expected standards. This can and should change with the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Some sources have suggested a ‘more premium build’ for the Galaxy S6, with Samsung opting for an aluminum construction and even using graphene from super advanced material (which the company found a solution to manufacture in better quantities than before). While the latter may be a bold and memorable transfer, it will likely drive up manufacturing prices for the S6 a bit too much and, to be honest at that level, we will be proud of the metal reasonably than in another uninspiring plastic year.
In addition, we would have a certain amount of mud and waterproofing. The S5 is sealed against the weather, and its successor is obliged to observe. This further increases the number of questions, so you can go even deeper: increasing the IP68 specification of the S5’s IP67 ranking would imply that you could fully immerse the phone for an extended period without water entering. No extra determined baggage of rice and fingers crossed, should the phone fall into the bathtub or bathroom.
The above rendering is an idea created by 3g.co.uk. It’s just an instance of what the Galaxy S6 might look like, however, for now, we are restricted to speculation and assumptions. Until the rumor produces more, that is.
SCREEN: TIME FOR 2K?
The Galaxy S5 has a very solid screen: 5.1in; 1080p decision; AMOLED technology. We really like its vibrant and lush colors – however, we highly doubt that Samsung will keep it on the S6.
The company’s friendly Korean rival, LG, has already launched a phone with a 2K screen (the G3 show has a large set of 2560 x 1440 pixels), and Samsung likes to be seen outperforming – or not less than matching – fellow countrymen. We anticipate that the possibilities of a 2K screen making its features for the S6 too overwhelming, certainly, mainly because the 4K 4K note screen proves that Samsung has obtained the ability to produce them.
In all likelihood, the display screen will also receive a slight increase in measurement, but it may not be an excessive amount of. Anyway, I would not like to compete with the brother of Word 4.
Personally, we would be more than satisfied with 2K and 5.2in – taking greater risks, making the phone too big for our fingers and getting sharper impresses us, because the excess of pixels on a screen is this measure, mainly because the pixels extras require extra power and overcharge the battery.
CURVED SCREEN? SURE, WHY NOT
The edge of the note 4 (photo above) has a curved screen, with the precision of the show folding the previous edge of the device.
It is not uncommon to have the opportunity for Samsung to bless the Galaxy S6 with an identical screen.
Observe Edge’s own chief designer Kim Na-su recently said that “a change in the platform can result in a wide range of new problems. A curved screen is a giant resolution to overcome these challenges.”
Jerry Kang, senior analyst at IHD, previously acknowledged that the Galaxy S6 may have a double-edged screen that curves on either side.
Add the whole set above, collectively, and the curved display on Samsung’s subsequent flagship can be a real risk.
POWER: QUAD-CORE, YOU KNOW THE SCORE
Many are predicting that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will include a new Qualcomm chipset – the Snapdragon 808 or 810. Each has four cores, 64 bits and is extremely effective on paper than any smartphone processor at the time of writing. would be quite happy to see them on the S6 (they seem more likely to require extra power than the Snapdragon 801 on the S5, however, which can put even more pressure on battery life – see below for more details on that), particularly in the event that they were paired with no less than 3 GB of RAM.
Samsung is also launching its flagship phones with Exynos oct-core chipsets, although not in the UK. While 8 cores may sound twice as powerful as 4, it doesn’t really work that way: in the benchmarks, the Exynos-equipped S5 only performs marginally better than the Snapdragon 801-equipped S5. We expect Samsung to continue with a Snapdragon 808 or four-core 810 and yet provide the efficiency that a phone like the S6 would require.
We’ll also talk about storage here. If you follow the removable backplane design route, Samsung is more likely to help expandable storage via microSD, so the built-in storage shouldn’t be huge – say 32 GB. If, however, the phone has a unique metallic body design and the memory cannot be increased by the user, we would like to see 64 GB and possibly even 128 GB as an option, simply to keep pace with the Apple iPhone 6. And the Samsung prefers to be seen trying to do the same with Apple.
BATTERY: BIGGER AND BETTER
The Galaxy S5 has a 2800mAh battery that corresponds to almost all of its Android rivals, lasting about a day in circumstances of regular use (however, not all: the Sony Xperia Z3ltra a battery life of at least half a day) more) and also has an advantage, as it is replaceable per person. If Samsung decides to go along with a continuous metallic physique that would change, and if we prefer to see a longer battery life, due to greater battery capacity or high efficiency.
The LG G3 has a 5.5 inch 2K screen and a significantly longer battery than the 5.1 inch Galaxy S5. And 1080p, so it’s really possible for Samsung to increase its energy efficiency. Much of this will depend on the processor you choose for the Galaxy S6, and if this is the Snapdragon 808 or 810, none of them will seem likely to reduce the power consumption than the Snapdragon 805 on the S5. Therefore, a larger battery may be necessary.
After all, Samsung may need to maintain the level of sale of user replaceable battery. In that case, in all likelihood, this indicates that those looking for an extra battery life can simply buy a second battery to stay put.
CAMERA: BEST IN LOW LIGHT, PLEASE
If we were betting, we put a big advantage in the digicam of the S6, surpassing that of the S5 in relation to the dependence on megapixels. The S5 has a 16MP sensor and we will be shocked if the S6 has no problems above 20MP.
However, megapixels alone do not produce a great image and, in a way, we would see some measures taken to increase efficiency in low light situations: larger megapixels (Apple’s preferred methodology), optical image stabilization, larger aperture or mix of these . Optical image stabilization is a definite risk, we would say, since Samsung has already used it on the Galaxy Note four.
Personally, we’re not very inclined to take selfies, but we’ve heard a lot of people, and Samsung could try to attract them properly to the S6 with the next decision to go into digicam. The HTC Need Eye manages to squeeze a 13MP snapper into its front aspect and, although we didn’t expect (or need) Samsung to reach these lengths, we wouldn’t be surprised to see anything within the 7 or 8MP range.
DATE OF RELEASE: WITHOUT HANGING
With Mobile World Congress 2015 operating from March 2nd to 5th, we count on Samsung to have its Galaxy S6 unveiled around that point (March / April is the interval at which Samsung has historically revealed its main Galaxy S units) . Smart in terms of value, we expect it to look like the previous Galaxy S fashion – so don’t expect it to be low-cost and not much more expensive than the £ 579 in price of the S5 at launch.
As is conventional in Android circles, we also have a lot of leaks in relation to the S6 between now and its possible release date. So, visit compsmag.com to get all the information we get.
