Samsung Galaxy S6 rumors: earlier March release, revamped TouchWiz, aluminum fame

Galaxy S6 concept

Now reports about the anticipated smartphone are concerned with the design, internal components, camera improvements and other specifications.

According to the BusinessKorea, the Samsung Galaxy S6 could bring revamped TouchWiz software so that it offers more of a Nexus 6 experience.

The company is reportedly working on building the smartphone from scratch both in hardware and software.

A report by Korean tech site DDaily cited a “Samsung Electronics official” that claimed the Galaxy S6 won’t be equipped with a metal unibody chassis.

Only the frame will be made from aluminum, while glass will be used for the back panel.

The reason for the change is that the company wants to avoid having too many devices being similar to those of the Galaxy A range.

The report adds that the handset could pack a non-removable battery.

Rumors about the smartphone’s possible release date have also surfaced, coming from Korean site ETNews.

The site writes that Samsung’s Electro-Mechanics division, or SEM, will ramp up production of 20 megapixels modules with optical image stabilization (OIS). Thus the Galaxy S6 could benefit from the said 20-megapixel sensor.

The report also adds that the device could be launched in March, 2 to 3 weeks earlier than expected thanks to the strong growth that the SEM will experience in the first quarter.
