After the release of Samsung Galaxy S5 the excitement towards the future generation Galaxy S smartphone is spreading like fire because Samsung hinted that they may use the flexible display for the first time in the smartphone. But since the past couple of months lots of things has been revealed for next generation Galaxy smartphone and on other hand Galaxy S5 is criticised by the people because of its design but let us tell you that it is one of the best optimised, efficient and fast gadget Samsung ever manufactured. Also, it’s display has win the tag of “best display smartphone” as it is really efficient and better in rendering. And the good news for Galaxy S6 followers is that, Samsung might bring it in the month of October 2014.
Galaxy S series smartphones made the Samsung to achieve the first position in the market and these smartphone promised to be the most superior smartphone. No doubt at the launch of Galaxy S4 the pre order rates were surprising but slowly with the launch of different manufacturer smartphone the fire of S4 is lesser brighter now. Recently launched, iPhone 5S is one of the top most leaders in the market with its 64-bit chipset, its performance is unbeatable at this time. However, in the performance Galaxy Note 3 is also reaching to the iPhone level but still no Galaxy S smartphone exists at present which can lead. So, Samsung need something and its S series is ready to come with next fire i.e. Galaxy S5 and on other hand, guess what, Samsung is already planning Galaxy S6.
Samsung Galaxy S6 release date
There is maximum possibility that Samsung will schedule the Galaxy S6 release date in the month of August 2014 as Galaxy S5 is released in the month of April 2014. Earlier there were rumors that S6 would be launched in 2015. But competition pressure is walking with every release of Samsung and if anyone wants to survive in the market and maintain best sales then manufacturer has to come up with something best and different. So, Samsung would definitely come with two Galaxy S smartphone in 2014. So, start expecting from the next release. But the release date of Galaxy Note 4 would be earlier to S6, so we will see big brother of S6 in the market earlier.
Galaxy S6 price
Samsung will fire the Samsung S6 with the most advanced hardware and software of the generation in the 2014 but the question is, everything would be under a good price range for a consumer? The answer is yes, however Galaxy Note 3 is one of the most costly phablet / smartphone that Samsung has ever launched and it is priced at 770 USD in most of the countries. Guess what, Galaxy S5 would also get the maximum price tag of the 750 USD in the beginning and later would be sold for pretty handsome discount and same thing would happen in the case with the Galaxy S6 price. But we are not sure because the flexible display concept could increase the cost. However the price of Galaxy S6 would be maintained in the range between 750 and 800 USD Max.
Galaxy S6 Specs and Features
As discussed above after the launch of Sony Xperia Z1 and iPhone 5S the sales of S4 are affected with really bad pace and still declining. However, on other side Samsung is climbing with next stair of its market the all new Galaxy Note 3 but the future is not so easy. Other manufacturers are also trying to bring the similar hardware devices and already there are few similar devices. Samsung has a name no doubt but people out there are getting intelligent and they are comparing every bit of a smartphone and most importantly the price & performance ratio. In just few days, Google will come with up the unbeatable price & performance ratio smartphone i.e. Google Nexus 5 whose price would be around just $299 and the performance would be matching the iPhone 5S criteria.
Where Samsung will stand in the future if things will go like this? Well, we have an answer. Galaxy S5 is going to be the first Android smartphone to be powered with 64-bit processor chipset. Firstly there were rumors S5 would be powered with next generation 16-core chipset Exynos 8000 series but not it seems like, S5 would be powered with true Octa-core Exynos chipset but the good news confirms the presence of Exynos 8000 series chipset in the Galaxy S6.
The performance of Samsung Galaxy S6 would be defined by its internal hardware that would be better than your present laptop in many aspects.
• Samsung Exynos 8000 16-core processor / Snapdragon Qualcomm 810 64-bit
• 4GB RAM
• 128GB on-board memory
• 5.2 inches Ulta High Definition display (4K) or full HD flexible display
• 21MP (Ultra Pixel Sensor) recording at 8K resolution (ready content for your 8K resolution TV)
• 3300 to 3500 mAh battery
• Android 5.0
These specifications are damn amazing if we think about 2013 but who knows, if some other manufacturers like Sony, HTC, ZTE or LG would come up with better or similar specs in 2014 so that if Samsung will launch them, then it would be indifferent.
Update: 09/02/2014- Galaxy S6 will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and modem 4G LTE Advanced Cat 6?
According to the latest information, the upcoming Snapdragon 810 would be powering our next flagship Galaxy S6. If we talk about the new chipset would be coming later this year, is based on 20nm technology and has 64-bit architecture.
The features of new chipset include the modem 4G LTE that would support Advanced Cat 6. And the integrated modem is designed to be paired with the radio frequency module and supports data transfer speeds at 300 Mbit / s in the most modern frequency ranges.
To be specific Snapdragon 810 uses 4-core 64-bit processors based on ARM Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 (high performance or efficiency, depending on the specific tasks), GPU Qualcomm Adreno 430 (support 4K displays and standard OpenGL ES 3.1, hardware tessellation and geometry shaders).
And new GPU hardware would improve the efficiency by 30%. Among other features of the Snapdragon platform includes support for LPDDR4 RAM standards. Also, a good news as we were expecting 2K resolution display in our S6 flagship and yes, the new chipset has the support for 4K video at up to 30 frames / s, and has two 14-bit image processor with a capacity of 1.2 rn / s and has ability to connect an external display 4K resolution via HDMI 1.4.
New Snapdragon 810 will allow to record video of 1080p at 120 frames / second. So, let’s wait for few months to hear all this information officially.

The more is not always the best
The above specifications are remarkable and will make Galaxy S6 the beast smartphone out there. Apple iPhone smartphone are still running 1GB RAM criteria, however the hardware optimisation is maximum but still Apple will need 2 year to reach such performance hardware as discussed above but Samsung will make it possible in an year only. But the reverse could be happen in this case. Apple will achieve the double performance with 1X hardware (with max software and hardware optimisation) and on other hand, Galaxy S6 again has to suffer as in the case of Galaxy S4. But the conclusion is not so easy, almost 10 months are left.
May be Samsung will bring such solution to the market which would be unbeatable in the performance. So let’s hope good this time for the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6 future because, if they will make something different we will get something different to consume and excitement, fun and thrill would be doubled.
