Multiple Galaxy S6 designs still being considered

With the Samsung Galaxy S6 widely expected to be unveiled in early March, latest reports have suggested the manufacturer is still deciding between a number of potential designs.

According to claimed Samsung insiders, a range of Galaxy S6 designs are still being tested, including edge and dual-edge encompassing display offerings.

Having been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours in recent weeks, the Galaxy S6 – codenamed Project Zero given its standing as a substantial refresh – is widely expected to launch around MWC 2015 with an all new, metal framed finish.

“Project Zero is indeed a real thing,” an unnamed Samsung employee is quoted by SamMobile as stated.

They reportedly added: “I’ve also seen two different GS6 Edge variants, one with the normal Youm display on the Edge, and one with dual curved edges.

“However, when I went to my orientation, a few weeks before the S5 came out I got to physically see the 5.2 inch version. Samsung prototypes a lot and things change extremely rapidly.”

Although the insider has failed to offer any detailed insight into the phone’s finalised specs sheet, they have suggested the handset is benchmarking with only marginally better performance than its predecessor, the Galaxy S5.

“As far as performance, benchmarks are noticeably higher but not by earth shattering amounts,” they stated. “Overall device responsiveness is vastly improved, and memory consumption is way down.”

They added: “[It’s] not just specs Samsung is focusing on this time around. I’ve heard lots of rumblings about crazy new designs (and I’m not just talking Galaxy Alpha ‘redesigns’ either.)”

While we must stress that these questionable claims be taken with a considerable pinch of salt, reports of a reworked design have long been linked with the S6.

As well as an all-new look, past reports have claimed the Galaxy S6 will follow the Galaxy Note 4 in adopting a 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD display and an improved, optical-image-stabilised camera.

Power will also be improved, with the S6 expected to be one of the first handsets to come running Qualcomm’s new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor.
