Samsung's next Galaxy S series flagship smartphone will be called Galaxy S6.

Over the past few weeks Samsung has been rumoured to be developing the next Galaxy smartphone, codenamed Project Zero, from scratch. This is so as to make it the best Galaxy smartphone and thereby retain the incredible sales the company made with previous Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 versions.

Sammobile now confirms that the company's sixth generation Galaxy smartphone will be called Galaxy S6 and that the company will not experiment anymore with the naming strategy for the new smartphone. This does not sound surprising, as Samsung's Galaxy lineup is quite popular and the company would continue the Galaxy smartphone title adding the next number that represents the version.

What is Galaxy S6 Edge?

The report further suggests that like the Galaxy Note Edge, a curved Edge screen variant that was unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung intends to bring a variant of Galaxy S6, called Galaxy S6 Edge. The name could change in the course of time, but there is just a ghost of a chance that it will.

As for the hardware features, the Galaxy S6 Edge will use a curved screen like the Galaxy Note Edge and will bend to one side. Samsung could release limited units of Galaxy S6 Edge in selected markets but that is higher in number than the current Galaxy Note Edge.

Galaxy S6 specs

Samsung's latest Galaxy S iteration is likely to pack a Quad HD screen with resolution at 2560 x 1440 pixels, 64-bit Exynos 7420 or Snapdragon 810 processor, a 16 or 20 megapixel rear camera and five megapixel front snapper. Besides, there will be storage variants of 32, 64 and 128GB and Broadcom's new BCM4773 sensor chip.
