Samsung has finally started sending out official invites for the March 1 Unpacked 2015 event, hinting at a more curvy design for the upcoming Galaxy S6, reports Sammobile. The invite reads "What's next" and the emphasis is clearly on a more curved design.
Yesterday, a leaked design render also showed a more curvy look for the Galaxy S6, which suggests a more iPhone 6-like design for the new flagship from Samsung. However, it is unclear whether Samsung plans two variants of the Galaxy S6, one standard and another with Note-Edge like curvy variant.
"Coming back to the emphasis on the ‘curve’, it could be possible that instead of having another curved variant, the standard version of the Galaxy S6 have a curved design akin to the Note Edge. Of course, this is what we’re speculating; we could, on the other hand, end up with two variants as well," says the report on Sammobile.
Reports about Samsung unveiling the Galaxy S6 at the Mobile World Congress have been doing rounds for sometime now, but the most recent report reveals that the S6 could be released soon by the end of March.
In terms of specs , the Galaxy S6 may feature an Ultra HD 4k display, 4GB RAM and a 20MP camera. An initial specs list for S6 shows 5.3-inch 4K AMOLED display, a 64-bit Exynos 7420 or Snapdragon 810 processor depending on the country, 5 megapixel front camera, and Broadcom’s new sensor chip.
Samsung is now believed to release the Galaxy S6 with Exynos 7 and LTE. Initially, Samsung was testing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, but it was found to cause over heating, which made Samsung drop the idea of using the Snapdragon 810 SoC. Qualcomm has agreed to rework the Snapdragon 810 SoC for Samsung’s flagship device.
According to analysts, the Exynos 7 should enable Samsung to gain a good market share in the mobile applications processor business, which is currently ruled by Qualcomm.
