The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Sony Xperia Z4 are two of the devices that will drop next year and pretty much lead the market. Although there is still some time before any of the two makes an appearance, it’s that time again where speculations and rumors begin to rise and eagerly awaiting fans await news of the handset of their choice.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is rumored to make an appearance in the spring at the Mobile World Congress. As per rumors, the device will have a metal casing like the Galaxy Note 4 or the Galaxy Alpha, so you can pretty much let go of the idea that Galaxy handsets are made of cheap plastic anymore. The Galaxy S6 is also known as Project Zero in some circles, and will supposedly sport a large display that will measure even as much as 5.6 inches by some sources. The device will also have a 20 MP camera on the back that will probably match, if not outrun the Galaxy S5 camera. The processing power that will apparently power up the handset is the Exynos 7420 chip or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. A 64-bit architecture is expected nonetheless.
On the other hand, Sony also has a pretty sweet treat in the oven, in the form of the Xperia Z4. Fans and potential customers can expect the new Xperia Z4 to feature improved specs that will surpass what one can find in the Xperia Z3, but the design of the new phone is believed to be very similar to the one of its predecessor, with only some minor changes being made in this category. The Z4 is also believed to come with a 20 MP camera, as the device will be capable of recording 4k video. Like the Samsung Galaxy S6, the new Xperia model is also getting ready for the Mobile World Congress for its announcement.
From what we’ve heard so far and the rumors that have been piling up recently, we can expect 2015 to be just as rich in premium smartphones as 2014, if not even better.
