Samsung’s efforts in grabbing the mobile market share with its Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 have not paid off as the Korean phone maker reported a mammoth 71 percent operating profit loss compared to 2013. This was mostly due to the number of combined iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units sold in a short span of time (10 million units in three days) as well as companies such as Xiaomi, One, and Huawei flooding the markets with their cost effective and high performance mobile devices.
With the overwhelming competition nearly bringing Samsung to its knees, the company has proposed another idea; to give its upcoming flagship device,the Galaxy S6 a whole new re-design. The re-designing of the Galaxy S6 has been placed under Project Zero, which is far different compared to the other project names the company had designated for its earlier mobile products.
- Project J for the Galaxy S4
- Project H for the Galaxy Note 3
- Project K for the Galaxy
- Project T for the Galaxy Note 4
The company used to designate single letters to its devices so the when the leading Android phone maker comes up with a whole word to codename the project, Galaxy smartphone fans can expect something big piled up in Samsung’s pipeline. Similar to its previous device’s release dates, Samsung will be looking to maintain the same timeline for the Galaxy S6’s release. As far as the technical specifications of the device go, the Galaxy S6 is rumored to be sporting an aesthetically appealing metal design as part of its makeover, shifting away from the regular plastic materials that Samsung incorporates for its smartphones.
In addition, it is also rumored that the company will be equipped with a 20 megapixel rear camera sensor, and running Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 810. The Snapdragon 810 will be Qualcomm’s first high end chipset that will possess a processor that will support the 64 bit architecture so that will give something for Samsung fans to rejoice about.
