Samsung_Teaser_Galaxy_S_6_Metal_01

The Galaxy S6 is due to be officially revealed on March 1st at MWC in Barcelona, after a steady drip feed of leaks and rumours. The pressure is on Samsung to deliver, and deliver big this year after the Galaxy S5 failed to meet expectations in 2014, both in terms of sales and what the mainstream consumer wanted. This time round though, it seems that Samsung has indeed listened to what its fans want by producing the Galaxy S6 (and Edge) out of metal, optimising TouchWiz as well as toning down the bloatware. Yes, you heard it right, according to Sammobile, Samsung is apparently only pre-installing two of their own apps, along with the other apps in the list below.

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab S 2 sometimes this year, possibly in the spring or summer. We already know that it will sport a metal build and the display will be more squarish as in a 4:3 ratio. There will also be two sizes, 9.7-inches and 8.0-inches. Probably the most important feature that we know is that it will be very thin, at 5.4 mm.

Today we have a little more confirmation on the rest of the specs thanks to a benchmark test on GFXBench.

Galaxy S 6 to be pricey, Galaxy S 6 Edge to be very limited and pricey

I don’t think anyone will be surprised by part of this news. If you were looking to get your hands on the Galaxy S 6 Edge, plan on jumping through hoops because it will be very limited as Samsung won’t be able to produce them fast enough. And not surprisingly, it will be pricey. The 64 GB version will go for €949 and the 128 GB version will be €1,049. That’s €50 more expensive than the iPhone 6 Plus. Converted to U.S. dollars, that’s $1,076 and $1,189 respectively, but it probably won’t work out that way due to extra taxes in Europe.

It may seem a little early in the cycle given that Meizu’s last flagship device, the Meizu MX4, just launched last fall, but there are some early rumors already floating around about a successor, likely to be the Meizu MX5. We know that Sony has already moved to a faster than annual update cycle, so we may not have to wait until next fall for the Meizu MX5 if they are looking to employ a similar strategy. When it gets here, it could be equipped with a fingerprint sensor and a whopping 41 MP camera sensor.
