Project Zero: Samsung is re-imagining its flagship with the Galaxy S6

The new metal finish on the Samsung Galaxy A5

Samsung hasn’t been having the greatest financial results lately, with a marked decline in their profits that seems to be a lot more than a blip in the data. But the company is looking towards the future and hoping to reclaim their lost mindshare.

In fact, Samsung is reportedly to change things up as the company is currently re-envisioning their flagship device: the Galaxy S. According to the latest reports, Samsung is working on “Project Zero”, a complete reimagining of their premier handset, a vision that will come to fruition with the launch of the Galaxy S6 next year.

This info comes from a SamMobile report, who has a pretty good track record with this type of information. According to their unnamed inside sources, Samsung is redesigning the Galaxy S6 and they’re starting from scratch with an entirely new vision.

The current Galaxy S5 has failed to capture the public’s imagination, so the next version of the device is rumoured to adopt new design techniques – such as the metal body currently present on the Galaxy Alpha and A series – and major overall changes aimed to impress and reinvigorate Samsung’s lineup.

Here are some of the rumoured specs of the Galaxy S6:

  • Quad HD display, 2560 x 1440 pixels, no word on size
  • 16 Mpx back camera, with OIS
  • 5 Mpx camera same as the Galaxy A5 and A3
  • New Exynos 7420, 64-bit chip / Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
  • Possible in-house LTE modem

Of course, while this may be quite close to the mark, the info should still be taken with a grain of salt. We’re still a long way away from the launch of the Galaxy S6, and the device is in early development so many things may change by the time it comes to market.

That being said, what do you think? Is a redesign and some good specs enough to tempt you or are you expecting more from Samsung’s future flagship? Let us know below.
