According to latest report from SamMobile, who is usually spot on with regard to Samsung news, the Korean manufacturer has a set name for its upcoming 2015 flagship device. Unsurprisingly, the device will continue its Galaxy S lineage, being called the Galaxy S6.

Interestingly, but no less unsurprising, Samsung will look to outfit the upcoming Galaxy S6 with top tier specs and a re-envisioned design language, hoping to make the phone stand up against the heightened competition. However, from what is stated in the report, don’t look for an abundance of curved displays or flex technology quite yet on the next flagship. 

The Galaxy S6 is reported to feature a QHD (2560 x 1440) display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 16 or 20MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front-facing camera, come in 32/64/128GB storage options, and feature Broadcom’s BCM4773 chip, which acts as an always-on navigation and application sensor chip.

Besides the Galaxy S6 hype, information is also trickling in for a Galaxy S6 Edge device. Much like the Galaxy Note Edge device, the S6 Edge will feature a curved-edge display, which is a direct application of Samsung’s Youm technology, introduced a couple years ago at CES. No additional information is currently know besides a release sometime in 2015.

We may only be a couple of short months away from an official Galaxy S6 announcement. Before that takes place, is there anything you need to have in the upcoming device to make it a must have for you? QHD? Awesome camera? Chamfered edges?
