The iPhone 6 fever seems to cool down as Apple’s competitors are starting to steal the spotlight. It is rumored that Samsung will release its Galaxy S6 in Q1 of 2015 and the device will come with great features. Samsung hinted that their future devices will be bendable, which means that the upcoming Galaxy S6 might have this feature. Now, the big question is “Will this bendable feature kill the iPhone 6?”.
We all know that in the past few years, Samsung scored big time with the Galaxy S Line, Tab Line and Note Line devices. In concordance with Android Authority, back in 2010 these devices were somehow synonymous. Companies such as HTC, Xiaomi or LG are gaining more and more popularity, especially Xiaomi. Samsung didn’t have the best earnings in Q3 of 2014 and this kind of discouraged the company.
At the Samsung Investors Forum 2014, the South Korean multinational conglomerate company revealed a few plans they have in mind for 2015, one of them being bendable smartphones. That being said, Samsung will most likely bring their upcoming Galaxy S6 with a bendable feature, which will attract a lot of users. It is also rumored that Samsung has in plan to release a few models that will come with different features, to cover a larger category of users.
Robert Yi, Senior VP at Samsung and Head of IR, said that he doesn’t know how Xiaomi made profit, and the company has already become a big “threat” not only for Samsung, but for other older companies as well. We remind you that Xiaomi was born only 3 years ago, in August 2011. Since then, Xiaomi has gained market share especially in China.
Getting back to Galaxy S6, in concordance with Android Geeks, the device will most likely be unveiled in January during the CES 2015 or February during MWC 2015 and it will be followed by a release sometime in March. As for the specs, the Galaxy S6 will feature a Snapdragon 801 or Exynos Modem 333 processor, a Quad HD screen that will support a resolution of 1440×2560 and it will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Do you think that Samsung will risk using an untested technology and come with a bendable screen or they will retain a flat screen for the upcoming Galaxy S6?
