Samsung Galaxy S6 Release Date......


Everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S6

With the iPhone 6 now on sale, the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date, is the next big talking point on the tech calendar. Although not expected to touch down until the early part of next year, a raft of Samsung Galaxy S6 rumours have already surfaced, suggesting the handset could be with us sooner than expected.Tradition would suggest the Galaxy S6 will not be unveiled until February next year, but recent reports have claimed a huge drop in profits have forced Samsung to push the Galaxy S6 release date forward. The phone could pair this early arrival with an all new look, and a powerful, octa-core processor, too.

With the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4 having both been unveiled recently, it is now widely expected that next year's Galaxy S6 release will echo its siblings and adopt a metal design of its own.
Given the Samsung Galaxy S5 was as a strong, albeit slightly iterative update on the Galaxy S4, we expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be a more serious refresh which includes a higher resolution, QHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 or 810 chipset and even, according to some, a flexible body.


While some reports are farfetched and others more likely, what is almost certain is that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will launch in early 2015 as a direct rival to the Nexus 6, remaining consistent with previous launches.

Given that the LG G3 features a 2560 x 1440p QHD display, a feature also bestowed on the Note 4, it is a fair prediction that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will also make the jump to a QHD panel.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Release Date

As you would expect, Samsung has yet to offer any official details on the distant Samsung Galaxy S6 release date. That doesn’t mean we don’t have a good idea as to when the phone will launch, however.  

Like Apple, Samsung has become a creature of habit, with the company’s annual product cycles bringing a level of expectation to certain points in the year. For example, September and the Berlin-based IFA conference means a new Note.

Since the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Korean manufacturer’s flagship phone line has been reserved for unveiling during – or within weeks of – the Barcelona-based Mobile Word Congress conference in February. As such there is no reason to believe this will be different for the S6.

With MWC 2015 to be held between March 2 and 5, we would anticipate that the Samsung Galaxy S6 release date could be confirmed during the manufacturer’s dedicated press conference on either Sunday 1 or Monday 2 March.

This tradition could be thrown off by falling profits, however. With Samsung predicting a 60 per cent drop in annual earnings, analysts have suggested the S6 release could be pushed forward in order to stem the rot.

“Samsung’s profits in the mobile division will continue to deteriorate during this period of changing their line of smartphones,” Lee Min-hee, an analyst at IM Investment and Securities, told The New York Times.

Speaking with Bloomberg, Claire Kim, an analyst with Daishin Securities Co in Samsung's native Korea added: “We all know Samsung’s third-quarter earnings will be pretty ugly. The earlier release of its new phones could be reflected in its third-quarter earnings, it could give them a slight boost.”

We will of course update this post as soon as more concrete Samsung Galaxy S6 release date details are available.
