Samsung Galaxy S6 Could Be Announced Next Month With Gear VR 2

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is set to be announced next month and may come in two versions. Even though the Samsung Galaxy S5 wasn’t a huge hit, Samsung is still setting the bar high with their next smartphone, which will come in two versions. Phandroid reports about the excitement over Samsung‘s upcoming smartphone.

“Samsung will look to bring more than just one big device to the show. Alongside the metal-built Samsung Galaxy S6 we’re expecting, Samsung is also expected to introduce a version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 with a curved display, ala the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.”

Numerous reports suggest the Galaxy S6 will not only come with Android 5.0 Lollipop, but have a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. It will also have a 20MP rear camera. The phone, or at least one version, will have a metal chassis — this is something Samsung users have asked for. Samsung has included a metal chassis for the Galaxy Note 4.

There are rumors that Samsung will release the Gear VR 2 virtual reality headset, which can be used only with the Galaxy S6, in April. A popular poster on the Gear VR Reddit forums talks about the upcoming Gear VR 2.

“Today, I met with a representative from Samsung, who claims that the Gear VR 2 will be available for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 in April. He said the screen resolution would be slightly higher, the Field of View will be larger and somehow, there will be less of a screen door effect. He said Samsung will add more controls to the headset. This sounds exciting!”

Even though the Gear VR 2 hasn’t been officially confirmed from Samsung, many speculated that the company would release an updated virtual reality set for the Samsung Galaxy S6 this year. The Gear VR, currently only available for the Galaxy Note 4, has received excellent reviews. Ben Kuchera at Polygon has described what most people are saying about Samsung’s Gear VR.

“This isn’t like the failed experiments that have plagued the past 20 years of virtual reality; this is technology that actually makes you feel as if you’re inside the virtual world of each program. It’s an impressive achievement in technology and usability, and is superior to the PC-driven virtual reality headsets created by Oculus in many ways.”

All of the early reports suggest that Apple should be scared. Are you going to buy the Samsung Galaxy S6 when it comes out? Tell us in the comments section.
