Samsung Galaxy S6 leaks under ‘Project Zero’ codename

Luke Johnson by Luke Johnson 03 November 2014 |


The Samsung Galaxy S6 has leaked under a new ‘Project Zero’ codename, a title which hints at big changes to come. According to claimed insider sources, the Galaxy S6 is already in development deep within Samsung’s South Korean HQ. Although exact specs are currently unclear, the phone is reportedly being referred to as ‘Project Zero’ due to being ground-up refresh.

The unnamed insiders, speaking with SamMobile, have suggested: “Samsung is developing its next-generation flagship device from scratch, with an entirely new vision.”

The reports added: “Project Zero is an indication that Samsung is trying to achieve something unique and different with the Galaxy S6.”

Exactly what that new vision might be is still unknown. Given the updates made to the Galaxy Note 4, however, the S6 is expected to make the jump to a 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD display and a more premium, metal design. As well as being a common reference to something new and innovative, the Galaxy S6’s ‘Project Zero’ codename is a step away from Samsung’s past, alphabetised, naming structures.

With the Galaxy S5 was referred to as Project K, the S4 and Note 3 original did the internal rounds under the respective monikers of Project J and Project H.

A major refresh is needed for Samsung’s flagship phone line. With the S5 having been seen as something of a minor improvement over the S4, the company’s handset sales and subsequent profits have slumped massively in 2014.

Although the Galaxy S6 is not expected to launch until early 2015, this is far from the first time the phone has been teased. Recent S6 rumours have pointed to the phone landing during MWC 2015 next March with Android 5.0 Lollipop and a 20-megapixel camera in tow.

As you might expect, Samsung has yet to offer any official word on the existence of the S6.

Like I said about the galaxy S5 earlier this year, a design is needed. This just might be it.

Hmm...to think I can't even be bothered about Galaxy S anymore, Samsung put me off the S series this year with the S5.

I hope for their sake the S6 sees even greater success than the S3 and S4. Here in South Africa the S4 has been said to be the most popular Android phone right now due to the mix of top spec and great pricing, hope they achieve the same with the S6.

The S5 was a nice start in trimming TouchWiz, they must continue in that direction and give the S6 a neat differentiator, e.g. how the Galaxy Note series are known for the S Pen, productivity, incredible screens and batt life.

Samsung Galaxy S6 design is ultraslim and metal

Under: Mobile Phones, Samsung
By:Debbie Turner | November 6th, 2014

As usual for around this time of year, attention begins to turn to the next flagship Samsung Galaxy S smartphone rather than the current version. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the next in line and it’s fair to say that we’ve already seen several concept ideas for the phone. Today we’re showing a new Samsung Galaxy S6 design that’s ultraslim and has a metal frame.

Just a few days ago we reported on Samsung’s Project Zero, a codename for next year’s Galaxy S6. It’s thought that the company is completely revamping the handset, so it’s interesting to see this latest concept render that teases us with possibilities such as the metallic body. It comes from Giztimes who have also provided their idea of specs and features for the S6.

These include a Snapdragon 805 processor, a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, and 3GB of RAM. It has an 18-megapixel rear camera, a 3-megapixel advanced front-facing snapper, and a 3200 mAh battery. This Galaxy S6 runs the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. Features include wireless charging with fast charging technology, and like the Galaxy S5 it will be water-resistant.

Further features are a fingerprint scanner, air gestures, and also a retina scanner. As you can see from the image shown here, this Galaxy S6 render is extremely slim and has a virtually edge-to-edge display. You might like to compare the above specs with the recently rumored specs for the real Galaxy S6 that we reported on here.

I like how Samsung are starting from scratch, I was very critical about their design becoming stagnant and the choice of materials used ie plastic. Since the inclusion of a metal frame in the Alpha the design and feel has taken a step forward however according to some rumors the S6 will loose it's IP certification meaning no resistance to water or dust also a none removable battery and a glass back similar to the Xperia Z series. If that was to be true would anybody be tempted to upgrade from the S4 or even the S5 or be tempted away to try something new?
I'm so happy 'cause today
I've found my friends ...

Exclusive: Samsung removing bloat from TouchWiz, making most of it downloadable

. The fact that Samsung’s phones and tablets come with a lot of software features is both an advantage and a curse. These features certainly come handy, but on the flip side, they have resulted in Samsung’s software becoming extremely bloated and heavy. With the Galaxy S5, the company started removing some unneeded apps and features, and made some of them downloadable so that they wouldn’t get in the way but still be accessible if someone wanted them
