4GB ram
It was only in 2013 that we saw the first smartphone to feature 3GB of RAM, and while it’s not a standard yet, manufacturers have begun moving towards 4GB of RAM for their flagships. Xiaomi and ASUS announced the Mi Note Pro and the ZenFone 2 with 4GB of RAM earlier this month, and according to Korean analysts, 4GB of RAM could debut on Samsung’s smartphone lineup with the Galaxy S6 Edge. Samsung has always been at the cutting-edge of technology when it comes to hardware, and the company even started producing 4GB RAM modules for mobile devices recently, so it’s very plausible that we will see 4 gigs of RAM on Samsung’s next flagship.

According to the same analysts, the standard Galaxy S6 will only have 3GB of RAM, which means the Galaxy S6 Edge could have more than just dual Edge displays as highlight features. Of course, this is simply a prediction from the aforementioned analysts, but we would not be surprised if 4GB RAM does make its way to the Galaxy S6 Edge and consequently to the Galaxy Note 5 that is certain to launch later this year.

Samsung allegedly testing multiple prototypes of the Galaxy S6, some with curved edge screens

Samsung will most probably announce their next-generation flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6 sometime in the first or second quarter of 2015. Earlier, we had reported that Samsung is building the Galaxy S6, codenamed as Project Zero, from scratch with a metal build, just like the Galaxy Note 4. Now, a Samsung employee, whose identity has been confirmed by a Reddit Moderator, has confirmed our reports about the Galaxy S6. Apart from confirming that Project Zero is a real thing, the Samsung employee (who goes by the name SamsungRep2015 on Reddit) also revealed some more important information about the device.

Samsung usually tests multiple variants of its flagship device before actually releasing them. According to the conversation on Reddit, it seems that Samsung is testing at least three variants of the Galaxy S6, one with a one-sided curved edge display, another with a dual-sided curved edge display, and one more with a normal display. Would Samsung release a Galaxy S6 Edge?

SamsungRep2015 said, “Project Zero is indeed a real thing. I’ve also seen two different GS6 Edge variants, one with the normal Youm display on the Edge, and one with dual curved edges. However, when I went to my orientation, a few weeks before the S5 came out I got to physically see the 5.2 inch version. Samsung prototypes a lot and things change extremely rapidly.”

“As far as performance, benchmarks are noticeably higher but not by earth shattering amounts. Overall device responsiveness is vastly improved, and memory consumption is way down. Some build have freed over a gig of memory consumption from cold boot,” he added.

“[It’s] not just specs Samsung is focusing on this time around. I’ve heard lots of rumblings about crazy new designs (and I’m not just talking Galaxy Alpha ‘redesigns’ either.) Spec wise though, that all lines up with what I’ve seen/heard, but again there’s quite a good chunk of time between now and April,” added SamsungRep2015.

The device is expected to feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 SoC or an Exynos 7 Octa processor and LTE Cat. 9 connectivity, as rumoured earlier. It seems that the performance of the device is noticeably higher than the Galaxy S5 and the memory consumption has reduced drastically. If this turns out to be true, it is possible that Samsung has been working on optimising and slimming down TouchWiz. It is being rumoured that the Galaxy S6 might feature a 20-megapixel camera with OIS and 4K video recording.

According to a Vodafone website, the S6 Edge will be called ‘Galaxy S Edge’
Numerous rumours and leaks have pointed at a dual-edged variant of the upcoming Galaxy S6 that could be in the works for a release later this year. Samsung’s first phone of this kind, the Galaxy Note Edge, was initially dissed by the critics, but the one-sided curve on the screen actually seemed to have caught the fancy of quite a few around the globe soon, and that’s maybe why Samsung isn’t afraid of investing in another phone of the like. According to a Vodafone website, the dual-edged screen version of the Galaxy S6 that we’re talking about — earlier believed to be the Galaxy S6 Edge — will be known simply as the Galaxy S Edge. Now, that might not make a lot of sense at first, but when you go to think of it, the Note Edge too lacks the ’4′ in the name, which suggests Samsung thinks of it as a completely different phone rather than just a Note 4 variant.

Sigh, another rehashed rumor: Samsung Galaxy S6 to reportedly be announced at CES 2015

This is one rumor that you should not take seriously at all, but according to the Korean media, the Galaxy S6 might get announced at CES in January 2015, alongside its curved screen variant (which might never make it to market.) Right off the bat, this seems like a rumor that has little chance of being true – we’ve heard almost every year that the next Galaxy S flagship is to be announced early, but until now, Samsung has always followed a strict schedule when it comes to taking the wraps off each new Galaxy S smartphone.

The report comes from Korean publication Chosun Biz, which cites analysts as saying that the announcement will come early. According to the same analysts, Samsung is aiming to sell 45 million units of the Galaxy S6, including 10 million units of the Edge variant. While that estimate might turn out to be eventually correct, it’s worth pointing out again that the Galaxy S6 will most likely not make an appearance at CES. It’s possible Samsung could make an exception this time around and actually announce the S6 earlier than expected, but unless really concrete info comes along, you should expect the announcement to come sometime in late February or early March.

UPDATE: We asked Samsung Benelux for their take on the rumor, and received a very standard reply that says “We cannot comment on rumors as off now.”

If you're going to directly copy paste off SamMobile, please be so kind as to just say so.
