It seems that Samsung will be giving up of removable batteries for this year’s flagship. According to some sources the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a high-end glass back panel like the one on Sony’s Xperia Z devices. Samsung is said to be ditching the user-removable battery with the Galaxy S6, as well, in favor of a more smooth and consistent design.
The Korean company is expected to reveal big changes on the Galaxy S family in 2015. With the smartphone sales falling, Samsung company needs to do something to win back fans.
Some sources claimed that the device would have an all-metal design, but it’s possible that Samsung has changed its mind or is testing both models and will release one or the other.
Of course, this kind of design would have its advantages and disadvantages. It willlook great, but non-removable batteries wouldn’t be the only issue; the device would also be more fragile.
Samsung reportedly had the Galaxy S6 at CES 2015, but was only showing it to select partners behind closed doors. A report last week said that the Galaxy S6 would have a touch-based fingerprint scanner. Other rumored specs include a qHD Super AMOLED display, Android 5.0 Lollipop with TouchWiz, either an Exynos 7420 or a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage.
