Samsung Geared to Redefine Galaxy S6, Codenamed ‘Project Zero’
With Samsung having already launched its Galaxy S5 flagship nine months back, it’s no surprise that a follow-up, Galaxy S6, is in works. Last week, the company announced that the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 smartphones, which dropped the plastic body to include the premium metal frame.
Now, according to the recent report from SamMobile, the South Korean giant has already started working on the Galaxy S6, and has codenamed it as ‘Project Zero.’ Previous flagship phones have gone by the names such as Project J, Project H, Project K and Project T in the past few years.
According to the publication, the Project Zero codename signifies that the company is developing the device from scratch — putting lots of thoughts into its design and materials. Right now, not much can be said about the upcoming flagship. However, previous rumors have hinted that the Galaxy S6 might come with a flexible OLED display, like the one included in the Galaxy Note Edge. It is also possible that Samsung will opt for a metal design like it did with the just-announced models, Galaxy A3 and A5.
A few rumours surfaced online reveal that the Galaxy S6 could be a monstrous device featuring a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED 4K (3840×2160 pixels) display, a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, and 4 GB of RAM. Additionally, it is also expected to boast a 20-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation, and other features like a retina scanner and a fingerprint scanner, which already come with the present flagships.
The company has pledged that it will be bringing several changes to the future device to lure in more customers, after a huge setback during the Q3 earnings. Over the past years, the company has been criticised for the use of cheap plastic material in the high-end phones. With the new flagship on its way, the company is expected to make a lot of changes in design to compete in the market ruled by beautiful devices like iPhone 6, HTC One, and Sony Xperia Z series and many more.
