Samsung Galaxy S6 to sport a Glass Back, may have a Dual-Edged variant


Samsung is expected to show off their 2015 flagship next month, and it’s been a hot topic around the water cooler lately. We’ve seen a variety of rumors hit the net over the past few weeks, so we thought it was time for a Samsung Galaxy S6 Rumor Roundup.

We’re going to start with the specs as those rumors are the most likely to be true at this point. The Samsung Galaxy S6 specs are said to include all the bells & whistles from the previous version 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a Snapdragon 810. That said, Samsung is thought to be considering issuing the octa-core Exynos equivalent due to overheating issues reported with the Snapdragon 810. As for the screen, all signs point towards a 5.2-inch QHD Super AMOLED display.

Samsung is believed to be reimagining the Galaxy S6, and the latest design rumor says the handset will feature a metal chassis with a glass back. This would definitely be different, but it would also kill the ability to remove the battery according to the report out of Korea. MicroSD card slots and removable batteries have been a big draw for the Galaxy series, and losing one (or both) of those features is going to draw some backfire.

We know Sammy loves their variants, and numerous reports say there will be an edged variant of the S6 just like we saw with the Note Edge. Some rumors say the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will have a dual-curved display while other say it will be just one side. Our money is on a device with and edged display on the left and right sides of the screen. That would be major, and it is just the kind of things Samsung needs to produce to shake things up.

Whatever Samsung brings to the table, they should do it in March during MWC unless they go rouge and decide to hold a separate event. For once, we think most of the rumors will pan out and when they do, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge will be two of the top selling smartphones of the 2015.
