A new report from Bloomberg claims to confirm recent rumors surrounding the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. With both devices apparently set to debut next month at Mobile World Congress we may already know pretty much everything about the upcoming handsets, at least when it comes to their hardware.
Citing the usual anonymous insiders, Bloomberg rings off a familiar list of rumored specs. The Galaxy S6 will apparently offer a 5.1-inch screen, Samsung’s own processor and a metal frame. The Galaxy S6 Edge is reportedly set to offer the same basic hardware, but with a three-sided display that covers the front of the device along with its left and right sides.
Based on earlier leaks, we’re also expecting a 1440 x 2560-pixel display, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel secondary camera, 3GB of RAM and at least 32GB of storage. On the software side, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will likely run the the latest version of Android 5.0 Lollipop along with a scaled back version of Samsung’s TouchWiz software. Other rumored features include a more reliable finger reader, a new mobile payment service and swappable back covers with different functions.
Despite the mounting evidence, these are still just rumors so don’t throw out your current phone just yet. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge likely won’t break cover until March 1, and we can’t wait to get our hands on Samsung’s latest flagship phone and its three-sided brother.
