I hope Samsung really does something truly innovative with the S6 and not make it just a spec bump like the recent Galaxy S releases. The Alpha series shows they are at least willing to try different materials, so it is promising.
Looking forward to this. I kept my GS4 because I was disappointed with the S5, no new design or major leaps forward. Sure as a stand alone phone the GS5 is one of (if not the)best phones out there but after the GS1,3 and 4 I was looking for something that bit extra special in design.
The Note Edge has really caught my attention and if Samsung do similar with the GS6 I'm sure I will be getting it.
So, a 5.5" screened Galaxy S. This rumor couldn't be further from the truth. :)
The S6 wouldn't be an incremental upgrade, I can tell you that. In fact, it would be the biggest leap an S line has ever seen from it's inside out. But it won't be in regard of the screen size. It's just simple logic, really. Unless the guys at Samsung have gone really, really dumb, a 5.5" Galaxy S6, will never happen.
Faz, 15 Dec 2014Nah man wait for the note 6, intel quantum 128b microprocessor!!Note with Intel? Go home you're drunk.
i very much doubt it they have always announced new tech in march at there unpacked event, I doubt this will change.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014another piece of disappointing device, I'd wait for LG G4, sorry, bye sammyBye Bye Nokia
Wish there were more options for smaller screen (between 4 and 4.5 inch). Market completely dictated by big screens and seems to be the obvious upgrade. Give me a good screen to body ratio nothing bigger than 4.5 inches and well optimised hardware...solid and maybe a hardware home button... And something other than Samsung... Even Apple has gon to 4.7 straight now, and quite frankly too big for me.
WWW, 15 Dec 2014wait for note 5 with uhd resolution Nah man wait for the note 6, intel quantum 128b microprocessor!!
WWW, 15 Dec 2014wait for note 5 with uhd resolution Lol. Keep waiting................ Every week there is a new phone its their business to temp you. Buy the most practical phone to your needs
Galaxy s 5 has an excellent screen. I hope they just make the bezels very small and leave the screen as it is, making the phone smaller. Or even if they upsize the screen I hope they don't make the actual phone any larger than it is now. Also, I hope the plastic body stays there because I hate metal frames around the phone making the phone very uncomfortable to hold in hand especially if holding for a while.
what so 0.2 inch difference between the regular phone and a phaplet, when do these companies got al little sense man it goes way too much
parasky, 15 Dec 2014I think with a 5"5 inch screen it would cannibalize sales of the Note 4. I think a 5"... moreYes I really hope, they don't decide to go for a 5.5" display. Why are the phones getting larger and larger now? They should be handy and able to be handled one-handed. I hope the max. will be 5". If someone needs a large Samsung phone, there is the great Note 4.
Apple is doing it the best, in my opinion.(not an iphone fan) They don't go with the large display hype. The max. should be between 4.6 and 4.8, and not more.

Its been publicized that sammy has been losing tons of money because of the GS5. There was supposed to be a big shakeup of employees as well. I'm not surprised if they announce the GS6 earlier to make up for lost profits.
