The Samsung Galaxy S6 could be landing much sooner than we thought, with analysts tipping the device for a January launch.
South Korea’s top tech crystal-ball gazers now think the upcoming flagship device could debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month.
Samsung typically saves its Galaxy S- range for Mobile World Congress, which falls around February/March, with a release coming the month after.
The news comes courtesy of a Korean site called Chosun Biz, which cited Mirae Asset Securities.
The report revealed the likeliest window for a Galaxy S6 release would be between January 6 and 9, which puts it squarely in CES time.
The rumour mill keeps churning however, as the report also suggested Samsung would release a dual-edged version of the Galaxy S6 soon after the plain-bezel version landed.
If this is true, Samsung could be planning to use CES to launch the standard S6, with MWC seeing the ‘Edge’-variant debut.
We’ve already seen a raft of leaks regarding the Galaxy S6, with talk of a Cat. 10 LTE Exynos chip packed inside remaining at the forefront of the rumour mill.
The device is also expected to carry a 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, 32GB of storage, 3GB of RAM, and a 20-megapixel camera.
Although a CES 2015 S6 unveiling has been tipped, we would suggest taking these reports with a sizeable pinch of salt for now. The Vegas-based convention is not known for its mobile announcements, with Samsung far more likely to use to show to focus on its 2015 TV and home entertainment lines.
