Samsung Galaxy S6 launch date rumors continue to firm up with the latest round pushing forth a possible Galaxy S6 launch date that aligns perfectly with previous whispers about the Galaxy S6 release.
As we push closer to the usual Samsung Galaxy S launch window, we’re starting to see Samsung Galaxy S6 launch date rumors start to heat up as Samsung makes its arrangements behind the scenes. The Galaxy S6 release still remains a blip on the horizon though reports continue to hint at a specific time frame for Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S6 release.
Galaxy S6 launch date rumors hinted at an arrival at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, Spain, a likely venue given that Samsung’s used it twice to announce Galaxy S variants in the past. The Galaxy S2 was the first and more recently, the Galaxy S5 was debuted on stage alongside several other products at the trade show.
MWC 2015 kicks off on March 2nd, just a day after HTC is scheduled to announce its new flagship smartphone, and it looks like Samsung may have finally made its move. According to Korean media, the Samsung Galaxy S6 launch date will fall just one day later on March 2nd. March 2nd is the start of the show and that date not only aligns with Galaxy S6 rumors but it also matches what Samsung did last year with the Galaxy S5 launch.
Samsung typically sends out media invites a month ahead of launch so if this is true, we should see invites for an Unpacked 6 event go out to media members in the early part of February. Samsung’s invites usually tip off what the company will be announcing though they rarely reveal the whole package. The company is known for announcing several new products on stage at the same time and this year, the company is rumored to have two Galaxy S6 variants and a round smartwatch up its sleeve.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 specs sheet is beginning to come together though it’s not clear if the company has settled on one of the prototypes its reportedly juggling behind the scenes. Galaxy S6 specs rumors have not yet aligned, a sign that the company could still be debating what to include on board the iPhone 6 challenger.
Galaxy S6 rumors point to a collection of high-powered specifications including a souped up Quad HD display, Exynos 64-bit processor, 16-20MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a new design that employs premium materials perhaps aluminum or glass, wireless charging, and a release on all five major carriers in the United States which includes AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 release date itself remains out of reach for the moment though Samsung usually gets its devices out about a month or so after their announcement date. The company’s typical Galaxy S release window falls between April and July with the last two Galaxy S models making their mark during the month of April.
Galaxy S6 release date rumors have not yet outlined a specific date though Samsung usually announces specific release dates on stage ahead of the device’s arrival.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is charged with improving the company’s struggling mobile division and Galaxy S series. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4 were both considered failures in the eyes of Samsung and the company is hoping that the Galaxy S6, a device that appears to be a departure from its last two releases, will help it rebound.
On paper, the device poses a threat to high-end flagships like the iPhone 6, LG G3 and Moto X but it appears that we still have a few weeks to go until we can pass judgement.
