Samsung's Galaxy S6 - a curved affair

23 February 2015

Even though Samsung aren't ready to actually unveil the new Galaxy S6, an image of it has appeared on the internet. With this not being an Apple phone, the level of salivating is greatly reduced as Android users tend to be a bit more lowkey about new handsets.

The new device is going to be officially announced next week, but T-Mobile CEO, John Legere, tweeted a link to the S6. When you get to the page, you're greeted with this image.

So what does all this mean?

Well, it does look like the handset will be a curved affair, as seen with a previous Samsung release - the Note Edge. The difference this time is that it is thought the curve will be on both sides of the thing.

One good thing is that Samsung appear to have edged away from the fake leather and horrible plastic, with a rear made out of metal.

Gathering up the online rumours and confirmed reports, the Galaxy S6 will have an improved processing chip which will be faster and use less battery, which is useful. There's also news that there's going to be some wireless charging going on, as well as something that Samsung describe as a new "amazing" camera feature.

Samsung’s DongHoon Jang has vowed that this is "the future of cameras", which is a rather bold claim, adding that the S6 "will be intelligent and do all the thinking for users, allowing them to take amazing pictures under any conditions, without having to worry about anything more than just pressing the shutter button."

Hmmmm. Either way, this new phone has got to be better than the S5 which was met with a thorough 'meh' from the world.

    What's the point of the curve again?

    @ Albi Make it easier to shove up the owners' collective arses when they keep going on how wonderful the curves are.
