We have been hearing a number of rumors about the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones, one of the rumors was that the device would feature a full metal casing, including the back of the handset.
Now according to a recent report, Samsung will not be using a full metal casing for the device, instead they will use a metal frame similar to the Samsung Galaxy A series of devices like the Galaxy A7 or the Galaxy Alpha.
The news apparently comes from a Samsung executive who has told Korea’s DDaily that both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will use a metal frame rather than a full metal case.
The good news is that Samsung will not be using plastic for the rear of the handset, instead the company will use glass for both the front and back of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 will apparently not come with a removable battery like previous models of the handset.
The Galaxy S6 is rumored to feature a 5 inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, there will apparently be two processor versions of the device.
Samsung have plans to use their new Exynos 7420 processor and also the new eight core Snapdragon 810 processor, although the majority of the handsets at launch with come with the Samsung processor.
The handset is also rumored to come with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, plus a new fingerprint sensor, and updated cameras, with either a 16 megapixel or 20 megapixel camera.
We should have more details on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones when they are mode official at Mobile World Congress next month.
