Samsung to reportedly launch Galaxy S6, round-dial smartwatch at MWC 2015

Samsung Galaxy S6, the device code-named 'Project Zero' will most likely be announced at the Mobile World Congress 2015.


Samsung Galaxy S6, the device code-named 'Project Zero' will most likely be announced at the Mobile World Congress 2015, which takes place in March this year. Business Insider has reported that Samsung will release two variations of its next flagship phone at the event.

As we had noted earlier, the model will have an aluminium unibody frame. It is believed that the handset has also reached India for testing purposes, as an import data website Zauba, showed that Samsung had flown in a smartphone with the model number SM-G925F.

According to the site, Samsung declared Rs 44,909 as the price of the product for import declaration and the phone has come in from South Korea for Research and Development purpose. The phone that was imported apparently has the curved screen display like the Galaxy Note Edge. The Galaxy Note Edge has a display on the side that offers notifications and updates.

As far as other specs of the Galaxy S6 are concerned, it was reported that the smartphone will have an Ultra HD 4k display, 4GB RAM and a 20MP camera. An initial specs list for S6 reveals that the phone may have a 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.

Other than the Samsung Galaxy S6, the South-Korean firm could also launch a round-dial smartwatch. SamMobile reports that the Samsung smartwatch is codenamed ‘Orbis’ and will release at MWC. It will run the Tizen OS as well.

Given that Samsung Galaxy S5 didn't receive a great response from users, Samsung will hope that Galaxy S6 will vow users. For now, it remains to be seen what will Samsung offer with the device that will stand out.
