Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

There has been a long wait for the next smartphone in the Samsung Galaxy S series since the release of the stunning Galaxy S5 last year. That wait appears to be almost over if the reports going around are anything to go by. The Galaxy S6 is almost here! We present to you information (guesses at best) available on the next flagship device from Samsung. The Galaxy S21 is the latest iteration.

Release Date

Rumours initially had it that the Samsung Galaxy S6 would be released toward the end of last year, but that has obviously not happened. The device now appears to be set for launching at the Mobile World Congress 2015 holding in Barcelona at the beginning of March.

This is after the Korean company recently sent out invitations to a Galaxy Unpacked event on March 1. MWC 2015 commences on March 2 and, given Samsung’s practice of unveiling products a day before the show, the device set for unpacking could very likely be the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Specs and Features

It is being speculated that the Galaxy S6 could bear certain semblance to the Galaxy Alpha, but it is not clear to what extent. However, the upcoming smartphone looks set to have an all-metal body, possibly with a curvy touch to it.

Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to have a screen larger than the 5.1-inch provided on its predecessor S5 – perhaps, as large as 5.5 inches. The Super AMOLED screen technology will likely be used on the device as well. A camera of up to 21 megapixels appears to be on the cards for the device.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been expected all along to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 octa-core, 64-bit processor. But it is now being rumoured that Samsung may opt for its own Exynos processor after the Snapdragon 810 processor had overheating issue during testing.

Release of Samsung Galaxy S6 variants with different processors (Exynos and Snapdragon) is another possibility. The phone will very likely run on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop platform.

Given the fact that several of Samsung’s devices now come with a fingerprint scanner, the Galaxy S6 could mostly likely come with the feature as well. The scanner could also be equipped with a touch-based recognition capability. Features recently introduced to the Galaxy Note 4, including UV sensor and fast charging, should also be available on the Galaxy S6.


The price of the Samsung Galaxy S6 will understandably be higher than that of the S5, which launched at around $750, since it comes with more features. The phone is speculated to sell for any amount between $850 (N170,000) and $1,100 (N220,000) when it is finally released.
