The next mobile product from Samsung will come in two models according to industry insiders who spoke with Bloomberg.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 developed under the name “Project Zero” is expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in March, the unnamed sources said.
One of the models will have triple-sided screen and the other model will have front-facing display.
The triple-sided screens will be designed covering the front side and the left and right sides of the model, the sources told Bloomberg.
Both Samsung Galaxy S6 models’ specs will include metal bodies and frames supplied by BYD Electronic International Co., the sources said. The phones with 5.1-inch screens will be powered by the latest and most advanced Samsung processor chips, the people knowledgeable of the matter said.
Only the front-facing display will be unveiled for the MWC event in March, Bloomberg reported citing “people with direct knowledge of the matter.”
However, it has to be recalled that Samsung released an invitation for its own event scheduled to happen on March 1 ahead of MWC. The invitation teased with the log line “What’s Next” and a drawing of a curved line.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 maybe the first device from Samsung that will put the concept of “The Internet of Things” or IoT in much better use. In his opening keynote speech during the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show or CES on Jan 5, President and CEO BK Yoon spoke of Samsung’s advanced sensors and chips.
One of these sensors is a three-dimensional range sensor that can detect the tiniest movements. Yoon had also spoke about Samsung working on embedded chips that will be energy-efficient and compact enough to be used on wearables and mobile devices.
“Samsung already has a broad range of IoT devices. Last year, Samsung delivered more than 665 million products, and this number is set to increase. We have already begun to unlock the value hidden in connected devices and all the everyday objects around us,” Yoon said.
