Samsung is coming off one of the worst year’s since it came into the mobile business, but is looking to reform its division to be even more efficient in 2015.
This will start with the launch of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Edge S, according to a new report. The report comes with a press invite to Mobile World Congress (MWC) on March 1.
It is interesting that Samsung is bringing the main event to MWC, considering the lacklustre amount of announcements at CES 2015. Samsung might have a press event a few days prior to MWC, allowing journalists to get early previews of the new device.
Samsung is changing the design of the Galaxy S6 from previous versions, finally adding a full metal design. The South Korean manufacturer hired a new lead designer who used to work under Jony Ive to work on the Galaxy S6.
Internally, it is still unknown what the Galaxy S6 will run, now that Samsung have been outed as the “large customer” who dropped Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, due to thermal issues.
Samsung might have to utilise its own Exynos brand or MediaTek, both are not popular in the West. Other internals include 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 21MP rear camera.
The Galaxy Edge S will feature the same internals but should come with a flexible design. Samsung is sold on the flexible idea and might sell this as a “pro” version of the Galaxy S6.
Software will also be worked on by Samsung this year, drawing back some of the features on TouchWiz to give the skin a stock Android look.
This all sounds great, but the proof is in the pudding and if Samsung cannot win back customers in 2015, it might spell the end of its reign on the top of the mobile charts.
