Previous reports have claimed that the South Korean phone maker will officially announce their next-gen flagship early March at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, then release it on the market late March. A new leak is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date has been set for March 22nd.
According to a Samsung internal document obtained by the folks at Phone Arena from an alleged Samsung employee, the South Korean company could release the Galaxy S6 on the market soon after the March 1st announcement. The said document is informing the Samsung employees about a vacation blackout between March 22nd and March 30th, which is an indication that a new major Samsung product will arrive in their stores in the aforementioned time frame.
As usual, the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date will not be the same in all countries. Korea is expected to be the first country to receive the new smartphone, while the US carriers could get it a couple of weeks later.
Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to arrive with beastly technical specifications. If the rumors prove true, Sammy’s next-gen flagship smartphone will be equipped with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad (1440 x 2560) HD resolution, 3 GB of RAM, and an octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset with 64-bit support. Rumor has it that this year we will not get a Qualcomm-powered Galaxy S6, as the South Korean company has ditched the Snapdragon 810 unit because of an overheating issue. Samsung recently indicated that their new smartphone will arrive with a camera that sets new standards for phones, while reports are talking about a 20 MP unit.
Without a doubt, the Galaxy S6 will run Lollipop out of the box, with rumors suggesting that Samsung have lowered the TouchWiz customizations. We even heard about a new fingerprint sensor, which unlike the swipe based unit used for the S5 and other Samsung devices, works similar to iPhone 6’s touch-based sensor.
The rumor mill also talks about a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge variant. Unlike Note Edge, which arrives with the screen bent over one side, S6 Edge will have the screen bent over both edges.
