A lot of rumours have been surfacing about the Samsung Galaxy S6 as of late, and it seems Robert Yi, IR head of Samsung Electronics, had a few clues to give about the Korean tech giant’s next flagship, KoreanHerald reports.
The exec said that Samsung will be launching an “innovative premium handset” this 2015. He adds that it will come with a “special function.” We’re thinking it’s safe to presume that this “premium handset” is the Galaxy S6. However, this “special function” the exec mentioned is anyone’s guess.
Another Samsung exec also had something to add about the S6. Korean-speaking ZDNet reports Park Jin Young, VP of Samsung Mobile, saying that there will be enough Exynos APs (presumably the Exynos 7420 SoC), suggesting that Samsung will not be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 for its next flagship.
Now about the Galaxy S6’s rumoured premium design, there has been talk that Samsung was having problems with a metal design, since it did have problems with the Galaxy Alpha’s metal chassis in the past. The report says the mass production of metal cases like that seen on the A3 and A5 have been perfected, and that there will no longer be any problems with the mass production of metal cases for the S6. This also means that rumours of the S6 sporting two glass panels on the front and back over the metal chassis is not true.
Of course, we won’t know for sure what these execs are talking about until Samsung unveils the Galaxy S6 in March at Mobile World Congress.
