Stylish Samsung Galaxy S6 concept revealed
Update: We've now put together our own stunning Samsung Galaxy S6 Concept. (Watch the video above and view more details and photos here)
We might not know much of anything about the Samsung Galaxy S6 yet, but that hasn’t stopped one designer from coming up with a concept. Jermaine Smit has carefully created a render of one direction that Samsung could go with the handset and we have to say, we’re definitely fans.
As shown in the video below, the concept includes a bezel-free curved screen, 4GB of RAM, an Exynos 5433 64-bit processor, runs Android 4.5, weighs 162g and comes in white, blue, red and black varieties.
It has a 20 megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash and optical image stabilisation and the handset has a super-slim build.
Smit doesn’t state what material the concept device would be built from, but it looks to us like it has a glass back, which is quite a departure from the plastic Samsung is known for. Overall it’s a much smarter, more premium design than any existing Samsung handset.
Will the actual Galaxy S6 look like this? We doubt it. There’s been talk that Samsung might switch to metal, so it could certainly get more premium and the general shape could be used but we’d be very surprised if the S6 had a curved screen. It’s an area that Samsung has experimented with but it’s unlikely to risk equipping a flagship with one.
The specs on the other hand seem very believable. We already have phones with 3GB of RAM, so 4GB by next year seems reasonable, as does a 64-bit Exynos processor and it’s almost a guarantee that it will run Android 4.5 when it launches.
We imagine the camera will get an upgrade too. The Samsung Galaxy S5 already has a 16 megapixel camera, so boosting it to 20 megapixels would be realistic and some other phones have dual-LED flash and optical image stabilisation so that’s not unlikely either.
We’re sure plenty of other concepts will emerge before the final handset is revealed, but this is certainly a good start.
