On Sunday, March 1, 2015, Samsung will hold a Unpacked event in advance of the MWC 2015 in the course of the new flagship smartphone is revealed. What the South Korean market leader could integrate so all of technical tricks in his hopes, we summarize.

Samsung Galaxy S 6: Dimensions and Design

Let’s start with our summary of leaks, rumors and speculation with the design. Because this is a factor that is very important to Samsung in recent times and the new top model that is allegedly developed as “Project Zero” should be capitalized. Since the Galaxy Alpha, the South Koreans try new materials – metal was the first time in an Android smartphone from Samsung used. At the Galaxy Alpha, as will also the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, initially only in the frame. The end of October 2014 presented Galaxy A series could have a sneak peek give what Samsung intends with his upcoming flagship: a unibody aluminum body that is around closed, with side trays for microSD and SIM card.

Samsung As a result, however, would approve of a property that will appreciate many fans of the previous Galaxy devices: the ability to replace the battery thanks to removable back. Before Friends of interchangeable battery to turn away in disappointment, one should be careful with this speculation, because it is becoming apparent that Samsung Galaxy S6 might want to be equipped with a wireless charging option – a unibody metal would be useless.

If one several already pre-selling cases and leaked design sketches are used, they should have the Galaxy S6 rounded sides, similar to the iPhone 6. In addition, Samsung could take from a speaker rocker distance, and instead focus on separate buttons are situates on the left side. Dexter will be installed the Power button. The main camera is expected to stick out like its predecessors from the housing. By supposedly authentic CAD sketches even possible dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S 6 are known: According To those the device is 143.3 x 70.81 x 6.91 mm in size. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S5 measures 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Display

There are hardly any concrete information to display. Currently you go, however, assume that Samsung could obstruct a 5 m to 5.3 inches in diagonal measuring Super AMOLED panel, which comes with 1,440 pixels WQHD resolution of 2,560 x. With a diagonal of 5 inches, the Galaxy S6 would have a pixel density of 587 ppi, at 5.1 inches, it would be 576 ppi.

Whether Samsung may put on a display technology that is unlikely, but not impossible. It is quite conceivable that the group with the Galaxy S6 uses the robust P-OLED technology to make the front shock-resistant.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and faster memory

In terms of processor meantime, there is certainty that the South Korean manufacturer is completely rely on its own Exynos 7420 SoC, which is produced as the first mobile chip in a 14-nm process. Thanks to this manufacturing technology to a 20 percent higher rate than its predecessor, which was still manufactured in 20 nm process, can be achieved – and the lower at 35 percent of energy consumption. According to a leaked benchmarks Samsung should outperform the competition with its new processor in such tests – NVIDIA Tegra only X1 is currently performant.

Qualcomm does not play a fundamental role in the Galaxy flagship model this year. This at least suggests itself for some time now – it’s probably unlikely to be a model variant with 810 Snapdragon processor. Supposedly, the manufacturer has problems with the heat, which is why the GPU must be throttled and therefore less performance.

For the system hardware is on absolute top level and avoid bottlenecks even when transferring large amounts of data, Samsung could be reached on his recently released 5.1 eMMC memory, with the speeds on SSD level. The memory chips are currently manufactured in sizes 16, 32 and 64 GB – an indication that there could be the Galaxy S 6 in this memory sizes.

Finally cordless rechargeable battery

Also the battery there first details. The energy storage is only to have a nominal capacity of 2,600 mAh and be soldered. So this would be smaller than that of the Samsung Galaxy S5, in which a replaceable 2800 mAh battery inserted. In light of the fact that the built-in processor is resource-efficient than its predecessor and the display may be smaller, could be to get over that fact. It is also hoped that the WQHD display keeps its energy hunger at bay, eventually more pixels must be placed over the screen than in a Full HD screen.

These pictures are 2,600 mAh batteries of the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge can be seen:

Samsung is its flagship smartphone finally factory spendieren support wireless charging. The manufacturer has at least issued a press release saying that one a “wireless future” prescribe themselves. Not only the Qi wireless standard of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) is to be supported by future devices, but also the other two the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP). Samsung had for the Galaxy S4 and S5 respectively corresponding accessories in store; innately but none of the supported smartphones wireless charging capability.

If this speculation are true, the Samsung Galaxy S6 should be designed differently than the Galaxy A-series, have their models all feature a metal unibody enclosure – with a metal back is not possible wireless charging. Accordingly, it is likely that Samsung continues to rely on plastic or glass maybe for the Galaxy S6 back cover. Whether this is as usual Samsung typical, removable, must still prove.

20.7 MP camera with OIS

Having been a good 16 MP camera from Sony, which was installed with optical Image Stabilizer in the Galaxy Note 4, we can assume that nails are made with heads again next flagship smartphone. Samsung hinted at such a development already and a first teaser of the upcoming Galaxy Phone implied that the camera of the S6 will produce good photographs even under adverse lighting conditions.

The previously leaked information indicates that the Samsung Galaxy S6, a 20.7 MP main camera is fitted with optical Image Stabilizer – with the camera should 4K video recordings be a problem. An interesting detail is, however, that Samsung should rely on Google’s new camera API with which it is possible, for example, take photos in RAW format. This command currently only a few devices. The front camera fires allegedly with 5 MP.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Interface: TouchWiz is slimmer

Android 5.0 Android 5.1 lollipop or even likely to apply set as an operating system based on Samsung’s upcoming high-end device. It will be exciting, however, as the South Koreans will optimize their own TouchWiz user interface. Samsung rumored to be separated from the ballast and geared for even part of Google’s stock Android – this would be a reversal same.

All sorts of Samsung Apps will also even completely disappear from the smartphone and will be able to be installed manually. These applications are, for example, S Voice, S Health and S grade belong. In addition, Samsung will reportedly make common cause with Microsoft and various pre-installed applications such as Microsoft Office, Skype and OneDrive on the upcoming flagship. On top buyers of the Galaxy S6, a MS Office 365 subscription for one year free of charge – at least if the rumors are true.

Samsung Galaxy S6 price

Be that Samsung Galaxy S6 is officially unveil the course of a Unpacked event in Barcelona on March 1, is already known. But when to begin selling and at what price the flagship service, to date, is not certain. A leaked internal document can be found, however, that Samsung has imposed a furloughs for their own employees for the period from March 22 to March 29. These are well to prevent a shortage of personnel in key appointments in many companies. A sales start in the specified time window could be possible – especially since almost always lie approximately 4 weeks between the idea and the release of the flagship of Samsung.

The selling price of the Galaxy S6 or the price range of different models – it is devices with different memory sizes give – is unlikely to be significantly higher than its predecessor Galaxy S5. In this last year, it was reported that it will cost $649. The street price fell shortly after release will be around $199.

Not only is the Samsung Galaxy S6 could imagine the South Koreans, including another smartphone model suggested for quite some time: The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. In terms of equipment, it is largely based on the Galaxy S 6, but the display does not cover only the front but extends along the sloping sides of the housing to the left and right. This design is made possible by Samsung’s P-OLED display technology, for example, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is used.
