We at the Gospel Herald have already brought up the subject of the up-and-coming release of the Samsung Galaxy S6, even though there has been no formal announcement of the product and probably won't be until at least CES 2015, but most likely Mobile World Congress of 2015.

We at the Gospel Herald have already brought up the subject of the up-and-coming release of the Samsung Galaxy S6, even though there has been no formal announcement of the product and probably won't be until at least CES 2015, but most likely Mobile World Congress of 2015. 

Phone Arena seems to have obtained a leaked picture of the S6, and they claim an all-aluminum unibody.  This matches the rumors that we reported on about a week ago, which means that it will reject the plastic back tech.  I would definitely be a change in the look of the S series of smartphones. 

Another feature that makes the Galaxy S6 stand out is the very colorful plastic front.  As you can see in the image, it is extremely bright with its fluorescent yellow paint job, meaning that this phone will come in all kinds of colors. The pastel colors could give it a very retro 80's look, for sure. 

Speaking of the front, perhaps now would be a good time to talk about the screen size.  There have been rumors about somewhere between 5.2 and 5.5 inches, but as we have stated before, it will probably be about 5.5 inches.  That makes it almost to "phablet" level, sort of like the LG G3, the Samsung flagship phone's biggest competitor. 

Another rumor that is being spread is that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will not be the flagship phone, or at least not the only one.   Yes, there is speculation that there could be some "Galaxy Note Edge-like sibling" coming about, a premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S6, and it is rumored to have a 5.3 inch QHD (1440 x 2560 pixel) AMOLED display, 4 GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 810 system chip. 

The rumors of this other flagship phone have spawned rumors of Samsung restarting the whole Galaxy S line, not to mention the possibility of an iris scanner, something that really should be a standard feature on most smartphones these days. 

One thing that we cannot add to the rumors piling upon the S6 is the camera size.  We'll go with the current one of 16 to 20 Megapixels on the rear-facing camera, with 5 Megapixels on the front.  We'll also have to go with a Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm inside, not to mention 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB storage standard. 

Like last time, we'll also have to say that there is more waiting to be done before the big reveal, which will most likely take place at Mobile World Congress, if Samsung is following tradition.
