Some sources reveals that Samsung Galaxy S6 will be launched by the end of this years that is in the fourth quarter of the 2014 . But if this actually happens it will be for the first time that Samsung will launch its second flagship phone of the same S series in a year. Nothing like this as happened ever in the history of the Smartphone industry.

Since there is no official confirmation about the specification and features ,everything that is present on the internet in present on the basis of rumors. So we will inform you about the design, specification, feature, price , release and rumors in detail now:-
Well we all know that rumors and expectations play a major role in the development of a product and with Samsung S series expectations increases day by day. The whole design ,specification and features of Samsung Galaxy S6 are based on rumors .The rumors that were out there were as follows:
- This rumor is interesting because it stated that Samsung Galaxy S5 won’t be launched at all and that Samsung would be directly launching Galaxy S6 in 2014. This became a hoax when recently Samsung Launched it s Galaxy S5.
2.Another very interesting rumor was about the operating system . Some said that Samsung would launch Tizen OS with Samsung Galaxy S6 leaving the support of Android anymore. Well there were still chances ,but the Google personnel rubbed this rumors off.
3.There are chances that Samsung Galaxy S5 was the last in the Galaxy Series and it is expected that Samsung would start launching Galaxy F series. But recently a Google personnel stated that Samsung Galaxy S6 will also have android.
- It is expected that next Series of Gear devices would also be launched.
- The introduction of retina scanner is also possible in Samsung Galaxy S6.
Well as we have seen the design of Samsung Galaxy S5, it’s not that hard to determine the design of the Samsung Galaxy S6 . Many of the futuristic reviews expected that Samsung galaxy S5 would have a aluminum body and a finish just like the HTC One ,but it was hardly that way. It was launched with a perforated back panel . Additionally it was waterproof and dustproof and interestingly it had fingerprint scanner ,which many people thought it might not have as the recently launched Iphone 5S had it . But keeping few things apart Samsung main focus on the smartphone was the Fitness of a person,so it had also installed a H R sensor i.e the Heart Rate Sensor making sure that person can measure his/her heartbeat. Well with all this in just the Samsung Galaxy S5 ,it leaves us thinking what else could be there in the all new Samsung Galaxy S6.
Since Samsung Galaxy S6 will be the next flagship in the Samsung Galaxy Series ,a lot of things are expected from it . People are generally not happy with the design of the Samsung Galaxy S series smartphone these day .Personally I still like the design of the Samsung Galaxy SII ,still the best in design in all the Samsung Galaxy S devices. From the above details this is what we can imagine as follows:
1.Atleast a 5.3” FHD Super AMOLED capacitive Screen with a pixel density of 500ppi
2.Expected an aluminum body .
3.Very less bezel size.
4. Will be lightest in the Galaxy S series .
5. There are slight chances that it may not have aluminum body and may have the same material just as Samsung Galaxy S5 but with a larger screen.
Well this is how we expect Samsung Galaxy S6 will have design changes.
Well mostly people are interested in features that a Smartphone provides. Since you know here we are talking about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy ‘s next flagship that is the Galaxy S6 the comparison of features become more important .Since many Giants are releasing their featured phone people generally require some additional stuff that helps them make their mind for buying such a smartphone.
Well the expected features of Samsung Galaxy S6 are as follows:
1. 19-21 MP Primary Camera
2. 3-5 MP Secondary Camera
3. 3GB RAM
4. 16/32/64 GB Variants with addition memory slot
5. Dustproof and Water resistant
6.Metallic Body expected
7. Upgraded Exynos 6 processor , Intel Haswell series won’t be a part of it surely.
8. Fingerprint scanner
9.Retina Scanner (expected)
10.HR sensor( Heart rate sensor)
11. Gear 3.0 (with amazing looks)
12. Android 5.0

14.Battery of at least 3200mAh
15.Would be lightest in the Samsung Galaxy S series and will have amazing looks.

Next thing that people are interested is knowing the price associated with such a Smartphone and whether is that Smartphone worth that price. Price of the Smartphone drops down every month ,but here we are concerned about the initial price of Samsung Galaxy S6.It is expected to cost around $1000.
It is expected that Samsung Galaxy S6 would be launched in some conference which may be called the unpacked event 6 or unpacked event 7 in last week of February 2015 or first week of March 2015 and is expected to release by April first week.
Well thats not it , colors also play an important part in texture and appeal of the smartphone . It is expected that Samsung Galaxy S6 will be launched in 4-5 colours ,taking into account blue ,black , white and few others.
5G Technology will not be present in S6
Since we also said that there are chances that Samsung Galaxy S6 might be 5G compatible ,well it won’t be as the 5G technology standards have not been evolved yet fully nor have they been defined . Samsung galaxy S6 ,for sure will support 4G LTE in all varaints.
Metallic Finish for S6 possible
Well one thing that comes into play is that how can a Metallic body be waterproof ? Well by metallic body it doesn’t mean it is made up of Pure Iron , the terms like anodization and galvanization will come into play. More over it’s a Samsung product and we know what they are capable of ! If Samsung Galaxy S6 come out with a metallic body you shouldn’t be surprised that much.
Dual OS Might not be Present
May of our users have asked whether Samsung galaxy S6 will have dual operating System? Well, the answer is NO. Even though some believe that Galaxy S6 will Android + Tizen OS, we would like to tell you that Samsung has a separate series for Tizen OS and we believe that it won’t mix Tizen which still in its initial phases with Android. Plus the Google personnel also confirmed that Samsung Galaxy S6 will have Android OS .
Samsung Galaxy S6 Might Have Android ‘L’ as its OS
Recently Google revealed the Android ‘L’ OS in its Google I/O 2014. The best part of Android ‘L’ is that it supports 64bit architecture same as the iOS 7 . We can have a sense of relief that Android OS is finally out for 64 bit devices . Even though few Smartphones were supported by 64bit chip but were running Android 32 bit OS. With this we can assure you that Samsung Galaxy S6 will have the latest 64 Bit OS that is the Android ‘L’.
Samsung Galaxy S6 to have Retina Scanner
Well recently Samsung Exynos division tweeted a picture which shows the possibility of retina scanner in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Since soon after note 4 Samsung would be launching the all New Samsung Galaxy S6 ,there are chances that Samsung Galaxy S6 might also have a retina scanner for an improved functionality.
