Anonymous, 01 Feb 2015Haha 4 inches better. 3.5 even better. 5 inches already unusable by most people. Thats why ... moreThey have note4 at 5.7", they should keept the flagship phone at 5"max, it's a phone not a phablet. Not unless they competing with their own products.
3GB RAM? Oh, Samsung, you're so funny that my money's booked on the LG G4.

MaxSmarties, 01 Feb 2015That's typical Samsung's approach.... QHD on a 5" screen and they still use a PenTile mat... moreI think its ok, Pentile was a huge dealbreaker on Galaxy S3, the crosshatch and lower experienced resolution were too obvious, but on S4 i couldnt really see that it made a problem, for an AMOLED is was quite pleasant to use, like a million times better than the awful non-Pentile amoled of Galaxy Note 2.

Qualcomm chips are manufactured by TSMC, are you saying they are not Qualcomm? Is BMW not a german car just because much of its aluminum parts came from norway? If Total pumps up oil in Libya its still Total, everyone knows that so what your problem is i cannot fathom. Try to get real instead of being so infinitely ignorant.

All I really care about is whether the back is removable. If it is not, it will be Samsungs biggest mistake ever and I'm getting a note 4. If it is, hello S6.
prajjj123, 01 Feb 2015hey dont forget that apple uses chips made buy samsung ... can apple make water resistance mob... moreApple designs their own chipsets. Samsung is just one of the sub contractors..... like TSMC.
Samsung semiconductor isn't Samsung mobile, even if they share the same brand.
Great news if display sizes are getting more reasonable again, there is hope for 2015 after all. 2014 was a terrible year with no good devices launched, everything was just getting bigger and thinner with more and weaker CPU cores, resulting in lower real life performance. Galaxy Tab S was the ultimate proof that experienced performance took huge steps backwards in 2014.

QHD is useless in smartphones. Honestly now. It drains your battery quicker with no real added feature. FHD is more than enough for any phone out there.
Manufactureres should focus on reliability of the device ( ergonomical design, bigger battery, improved camera and sceeen technology and efficient processors). Instead, they focus on gimmicks like MEGAULTRAHYPER HD screen and super thin useless design...
People should stop complaining about Samsung's design, the front will never change, that's what makes it a Samsung. The only design change is the rear side and the dimensions. I expect them to go metal or faux-metal with a thinner profile with a flat "zero dot" back. (like the one leak)
AnonD-111968, 01 Feb 2015And what is the advantage of having more than 5"? U want to watch movies anytime anywhere... moreHaha 4 inches better. 3.5 even better. 5 inches already unusable by most people.
Thats why one hand mode and all those stuff comes in.
So, don't bother with ergonomics. Just keep growing.. Apple is not far behind! Grow grow faster.
that s6 wallpaper with camera icon on the right bottom , looks familiar , like been looking there somewhere else... nope, maybe im wrong , samsung always did it first ~
AnonD-354877, 01 Feb 2015thats never gonna happen get real! they will make it 5.2+ no doubt! they're trying to improve ... moreAnd what is the advantage of having more than 5"? U want to watch movies anytime anywhere? S4 size is perfect, anything more than 5" is absolutely useless in terms of ergonomics. We have human hands not giants.
thats never gonna happen get real! they will make it 5.2+ no doubt! they're trying to improve their device not ruin it.
It took iphone 2 years to add one more row of icons.
Samsung took 4 years... And couldn't even have enough screen space to add even one row of icons.. Hahaa.

It could mean better fingerprint censor, there has been rumours about galaxy getting better censor. Its not possible with current sze of home button.
If this real, that will be the downfall starting point of Sammy, smaller screen bigger bezel!
back to a 5"screen would be great as bigger than that for a flagship phone shouldn't happen!
Flagship should be phones not phablets. Give option with a S6 max for those who want a bigger screen. but a flagship should be a phone, 4.7" to 5" screen!!!
However the dimensions reported are too big for a 5"screen... S4 dimensions max, if possible even smaller please!
