The release of the Samsung Galaxy S6, the South Korean technology giant’s next-generation flagship smartphone, could be months away, but the company is expected to put the device on display during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week, according to a report that is in line with previous rumors about the handset’s unveiling.
Apart from the Galaxy S6, Samsung is also expected to showcase its variant, probably the Galaxy S6 Edge, at the event, which is scheduled to take place between Jan. 6 and Jan. 9, SamMobile reported, adding that the company is likely to show the devices to its selected partners and not to consumers.
This is not the first time that the Galaxy S6 is rumored to be a part of CES 2015. Last month, Korean media reported that Samsung could announce the Galaxy S6 at the event in January. The report also said that the device could be accompanied by a curved screen variant with a dual-edged display, similar to that found on the Galaxy Note 4 Edge.
Last week, an anonymous Samsung employee reportedly confirmed previous rumors that the company is planning a massive overhaul of the Galaxy S6, which is being developed under the codename, “Project Zero.” The employee also said that Samsung is working on at least three variants of the Galaxy S6.
According to rumors, the Galaxy S6 could sport a larger, 5.5-inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. The device could also feature a 20-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera, while the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop could serve as the operating system. The handset is also expected to be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and 3GB RAM.
