The Galaxy S2 was the biggest headline maker in the Galaxy S series. Till date the others haven't made that big an impact. I hope the S6 changes that and sets things right for a smartphone line that made Samsung what it is.
mkevin, 05 Dec 2014Nothing new, S5 is expensive, this phone must be priced insanely expensiveI don't know where do you live but here in KSA S5 sammy is reasonable priced around 400$
Yawn! Same old Samdung, they'll need to do alot more to attract more customers. There needs to be a much larger phablet variant to attract more people, if they can bring out another 6.3" phablet with premium specs just maybe they might get more people interested, otherwise it's more yawn 😦 time from me and millions of others.
samsung rules, 05 Dec 2014Good thing is mali gpu is better than adreno and exynos is faster than snapdragonWhat a contradiction
mali t760 ....put 16 cores in it and it is on par with tegra K1
Gary5, 05 Dec 2014I don't see Samsung launching a 5.5 inch screen flagship phone. S series has seen screen size ... moreWhile I hear what ur saying, isn't it also possible that Samsung are looking ahead, there is still plenty of space on Samsung displays to increase the screen without increasing the device to much, if this is the case of course remains to be seen, but shrinking the bezels and increasing the width by even a few mm and people would barely notice, thus in tern allowing the note 5 screen to grow to 5.9" with minimal alterations to build, there is also the chance that with the cutbacks that Samsung had said they will do in regards to streamlining isn't it also possible that we may see a smaller model on release as well with the same specs just a smaller screen, or we could even see 3 devices, the s6, s6 double sided edge and s6 mini......
No it shouldnt be 5.5" n wid same specs note 4 would be better if it doesnt get snapdragon 810
N since as the news says that samsung has strting from scratch we can expect a good design. What i ve seen that samsung exynos chipset is more power efficient like in case of alpha.. 3 gb ram is sufficient samsung realy needs to chnge the way their phones look.
Good thing is mali gpu is better than adreno and exynos is faster than snapdragon
so the hot issue has started... no matter phone shoots the stars or not but galaxy S series is alwaz the talk of the town everytime...its rumorland also receives an incredible attention... believe it or not but samsung definitely has something which attracts people to atleast have a look at its flagship device...
adeeb, 05 Dec 2014Is it not possible to put a QHD in less than 5.5inch I think it is possible but tasky.Like the new moto Maxx?
I don't see Samsung launching a 5.5 inch screen flagship phone. S series has seen screen size incriment every year but last year's change was minimal. That shows Samsung's view about phones & Phablets. First gen Note had 5.3 inch screen. Making a flagship bigger than S5 will only leave more customers looking for alternatives & Samsung can't loose more customers to iPhone 6.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 20143gb is not "stretching its feet", it is contracting them.
My phone from late 2013... moreignorant.
Don't you know that S galaxy doesn't support S-Pen as Note do??? Of course 3gb for S is a big upgrade. Next Note will be 4gb though.
Only thing I don't like is 5.5" display. S6 shouldn't be bigger than 5" display and NOT bigger device.
But this could be completely new model. Don't trust all rumors.
Is it not possible to put a QHD in less than 5.5inch
I think it is possible but tasky.
Sammy needs a radical new design...maybe ditch the home button and embrace onscreen keys and front facing speakers. Yes to a metal frame and a huge battery which is still removable(an added advantage compared to other top devices). Screen size should be south of 5.5" with minimal bezels all around.
Before some of these big OEMS/Company's start going about castigating their leaders...they have to understand that the competition is fierce and a lot of the smaller OEMs are catching up and making very good devices that are also priced less. Hence the reduced sales of devices like the GS5. Price your device right and if it has the top specs, the masses will shed their cash.
MD, 05 Dec 2014- Flexible display - Retina scanner - Any "real" reason to upgrade from S5 to S6I think the S6 is aimed at people who have the S4 rather than the people who have the S5
