There has been much hype and speculation surrounding the successor to the Galaxy S5, and with CES 2015 starting tomorrow, there has been hope that the Galaxy S6 might make and appearance.
Well, according to a report from the folks over at SamMobile, they are citing one of their reliable sources to suggest that indeed Samsung will be showing the Galaxy S6 at some point during the week-long event in Las Vegas.
What we’ve extracted from all the rumours over the last few months regarding the Galaxy S6, is that Samsung are currently testing a few different variants of the smartphone, each one with a slightly different specification and design to try and minimise information about the handset leaking out to various online sources. Saying that, not too long ago we shared some information with you suggesting that the Galaxy S6 had been benchmarked using the popular AnTuTu app, and from that it showed a specification which included a Snapdragon 810 or Exynos 7420 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage. It was thought that the Galaxy S6 might have a 20MP camera, although the data from AnTuTu suggested a smaller 16MP camera – but as mentioned, this might be down to the variant prototypes being tested by Samsung.
OK, we should actually let you know there is a catch; the report suggests that the handset won’t actually be officially announced, but instead will be unveiled to key partners during the event. But saying that, this might hopefully open the floodgates in terms of leaked information, and then we might be a better idea of what to expect from the next flagship Samsung smartphone.
As ever, we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt, but we do really hope that some light will be shed on the much anticipated handset. But to be honest, it’s more than likely that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be announced around the say time as its predecessor, which last year was during the “Unpacked Event” at the Mobile World Congress. I’ll guess we’ll have to wait and see…
