Two new Galaxy S6 image teasers suggest great battery life, fast charging?

Even thought rumours are saying -200 mAh battery compared to s5 we can expect more battery life with new Touchwizz optimizations , 14 nm exynos and new generation super amoled.

I'm quite interested to see the wireless charging
From Samsung's recent blog post it seems like they are going to make the S6 support all 3 major wireless charging standards
I suspect this is from Samsung's investment/partnership with a startup called PowerbyProxi, from Auckland Uni, my Uni :)
Charging speed will be interesting since recently Qualcomm's Rapid Charge has made to gap very big
Rapid Charge 2.0 tops out at 36W
Qi wireless charging tops out at 10W (for phones/tablets)

It seems this will be a great device. They seems like adding almost every useful features to this one. I think every profitable/company should fall a little so that they can come back with a bang. I'm so excited for the new S6.

Marketing is a very important factor for a product to be successful.

i prefer a great device ,and not a good marketing ^^
12. LetsBeHonest (Posts: 1384; Member since: 04 Jun 2013)
Without good marketing normal consumers wouldn't know there is a great device.

I´m not a normal consumer :D Marketing is Ok but not for me. I want see it with my own eyes... ^^
22. LetsBeHonest (Posts: 1384; Member since: 04 Jun 2013)
I'm just saying marketing is indeed needed for this/any device to be successful. I want this device to be successful Because I always loved galaxy S series.

I'm guessing that Samsung didn't design their marketing campaign around "what Biernot wants"

Nah. It's a lightening bolt. I think the video refers to the super fast device and one other teaser image refers to super fast charging.
I hope we'll see a new faster charging tech. After all the exynos 5410 was the first processor to involve adaptive fast charging. So we can expect 7420 to lead there.
35. Langers (Posts: 1; Member since: 18 Feb 2015)
Its a lightning bolt with a "7" on the top. As in Exynos 7...
The videos and images all refer to speed to me. i.e. Less waiting around for the phone to complete a task as a result of it being faster. The high speed train speeding past cars, etc..

If Samsung are removing the removable battery option on the Galaxy S6,they have got to Offer Something that Keeps the Battery Running Longer,Fast Charging or Wireless Charging might a good idea,but will the Wireless chargers we have for the Galaxy S5,will it be the same type or a new type of charging plate needed costing consumers more again,come on March 1st and see what Samsung as got to Offer at Last

apart from the desgning everything will be awesome... if desgin will be better than htc m9 than it will be super duper hit.. otherwise no ceo or chairman can save samsung.. mark my words

It should be:
Iphone 6. That's what inspires me. I am the next Galaxy!
18. datguyglad (Posts: 98; Member since: 29 Aug 2014)
Actually the success of the galaxy note inspired apple to come out with a phablet.! The choice of build material for samsung's new phones is a expected evolution to the galaxy series. Thier not gonna use the same materials again.! Of course metal was the next step, nothing to do with Apple.!

32. datguyglad (Posts: 98; Member since: 29 Aug 2014)
Lolz you really think that the success of samsung's galaxy note line didn't have any effect on Apple’s decision on making a iphone phablet.? Please keep telling yourself that and maybe you'll start to believe it yourself.
44. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Lol right except the S6 from what we have seen with leaks and case manufacturer renders shows the S6 looks awfully eerily similar in design to the i6, 6.9 mm thin like the 4.7 inch iphone 6 and the phone overall looks real dam similar to the i6,
46. datguyglad (Posts: 98; Member since: 29 Aug 2014)
Umm nope. Smaller bezels better bigger screen (then the iPhone 6) bigger better camera sensor. I mean it's thinner but last time I checked pretty much every manufacturer is going thinner and the metal chassis, like I said before metal was the next logical step in the evolution of the galaxy series.
48. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Sure metal unibody next step in Galaxy evolution, but the blatant copy of the i6 and it looking extremely close to a i6 isnt a coincedence lmao.
51. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Nope, completly heavily influenced by Apple and iPhone, the Galaxy S6 from leaked renders and from what we have seen so far looks eerily similar to a iPhone 6. Samsung gets it now and is going the iPhone route, so much for removeable back covers being gone now too LOL and sd card support is probably gone too. Samsung fans will glamor how this is the best thing ever
39. GalaxyS5 (banned) (Posts: 430; Member since: 05 Aug 2014)
Isn't apple copying? doesn't the i6 and i6pi-s euhm i6plus (sorry typo) remind you of a metal Note 2? or a GS4? oh and the ui and the "we're so 2012 in everything" ahh the good old GS3 days where we lived on a 720p screen nfc and other awesome features. oh by the way, last year I was glad you l0sers could turn off the wifi easily .. you know going into setting was a headache. how do you turn off mobile data? by the way .. oh I guess ios 9 will include it in the slide up thing on your iFeaturePhone.
50. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Galaxy s3 screen absolutely sucked and was not as good as other 720p panels, that Pentile really brings down the quality of the djsplay since the resolution is low and pentile is very strong at low resolution because of the pixel layout. Other screen technologies dont sufer from that
52. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Android devices dont use the more secure NFC payment method that Apple Pay uses, and no that s**tty 720p pentile display on the GS3 Is no where near the Quality of the 4.7 inch i6 screen
53. GalaxyS5 (banned) (Posts: 430; Member since: 05 Aug 2014)
hahahahahahahahhaha the i6 whatever is so 2012. isn't NOTE 4 PENTILE? oh isn't it a QHD and the BEST display available? oh talk about CAMERA and SOFTWARE too. go to h*ll Fred Flinstone.
16. kryme (Posts: 329; Member since: 24 Oct 2013)
I think the charger will be a wireless charging dock... That would be cool.
17. wando77 (Posts: 813; Member since: 23 Aug 2012)
To me there is a 3 shaped lighting prong above a line. The line is either a phone or charging pad and the 3 represents the 3 types of wireless charging being compatible.
19. rotkiv3451 (Posts: 84; Member since: 07 Jan 2015)
No software optimizations will be enough to make a 2600 mAh battery last an entire day of heavy usage. If the S6 doesn't come with at least a 3000 mAh battery, then I'm going with the Xperia Z4. 3400 mAh battery, waterproof, great display, and hopefully a good camera (that would be a first) will make for the perfect phone.
23. lukkiristi (Posts: 68; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Well, it won't just be software optimization. Their new chip is 14 nm and consumes less energy than previous generations.
28. rotkiv3451 (Posts: 84; Member since: 07 Jan 2015)
Yeah right. Just like Apple's A8 chip consumes less energy and yet battery life is just as crappy as the 5S (even with a bigger battery).
31. j2001m (Posts: 2829; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)
this is on 14nm, there last phone was using 28nm and i think they on about there 5433 with 20nm used in there asia note4, i.e. they will easy cover the battery remove, that and they also using a battery that lasts longer then the one they used on the s6 over them mah size, ans there new screens give better battery (this is not led), also apple are full of crap, why samsung as always oferred more battery if they say so, i.e. note3 to note4 and so on
33. j2001m (Posts: 2829; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)
sony phone will last as long as the s6, even with that type of battery, due to there led screen used and the crap 810 battery hog,t hat or you get lag with it and it runs on 20nm
42. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
6 plus has better battery life then the note 4/nexus 6. So not sure what your saying. I get over 5 hrs of on screen time with my Plus
49. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Note 4 soesnt get over 5 hours of on screen time with the brightness set at 50% whole way through
55. lukkiristi (Posts: 68; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
According to PA's test it gets 8 hours and 43 minutes on screen time with approximately 43% of brightness (200 nits), so I'd say it lasts a lot longer.
40. GalaxyS5 (banned) (Posts: 430; Member since: 05 Aug 2014)
well .. if sony can make it till the z4 launch. it seems they're just eumm evaporating.
41. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Actually your wrong when you say that. A 14 nm FINfet Exynos SoC is going to be extremely power efficient, like ridiculously power efficient. lollipop will further increase performance and the use of 64 bit code is the cherry on top now. Not to mention Touchwiz has got a complete overhaul and is suppose to be much faster and lighter(thus less strain on resources and device overall)
Also new generation of AMOLED panel too which is suppose to be more power efficient. Id safely say the S6 is gonna have quite a bit better battery life then the S5 and much better standby times
45. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Further increase performance and also increase battery life**

Luckily for us February has only 28 days....10 more to go :)
21. d_myke (Posts: 15; Member since: 13 Nov 2012)
Samsung has always done well, battery-wise. All they need is just better design and software optimisation. As far as screen, camera and general hardware is concerned, Samsung remains unbeatable.
24. Alicia8870 (Posts: 28; Member since: 16 Feb 2015)
This is gonna be a good year for Samsung and Htc. Wireless charging sounds awesome.
25. likiii (Posts: 7; Member since: 18 Feb 2015)
As a Note 4 user i would not change my Note for S6.. maybe only if Camera and Battery will be something never seen before in any smartphone
26. trqster (Posts: 96; Member since: 17 May 2013)
The S6 won't cause a dent on iPhone 6 domination of the flagship smartphone world... I'm actually much more hopeful that the LG G4 will be a truly interesting and innovative flagship like the G3 was before it.
29. AppleJuice (Posts: 145; Member since: 12 Sep 2013)
Maybe it won't cause a dent, but expect it to be a lot better.
34. j2001m (Posts: 2829; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)
the g3 was not innovative at all, they put a crap qhd screen on a crap 801 cpu and then 2 months later add the 805, its been tested they made the phone crap by using qhd as they droped the res down to 1080p at root and the phone came good, they just did it to try and sell phones, if it was up to the note4 qhd screen, i take it back, but it was crap screen that made the phone slow and lag like crap, somewhat like there new fleklag2 but they even made a lag crap phone with 1080p this time, good look with the lag crap g4 with that 810 in it
38. DnB925Art (Posts: 963; Member since: 23 May 2013)
You're right, collectively as a whole the S6 will not cause much dent to the amount of iPhones sold as we know, there are only 4 active iPhones models being sold as new officially from Apple, the 6, 6+, 5S and 5C, while the S6 is just one model out of hundreds of Android models.
What it will show, however, is the direction of both what Samsung will bring to the future as well as other phone manufacturers will bring. If Samsung has a hit because of the changes and improvements we are hoping it brings into the S6, then you can bet it will set a new bar for other manufacturers to follow, including Apple.
43. miket1737 (Posts: 2381; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)
Actually Apple has been set this trend, its obvious what Samsung did here, blatanlty copy the iPhone model (all metal phone now, heavy optimizations, super thin design as the S6 is suppose to be 6.9 mm thin only, finally a good all around camera now too)
After Samsungs profits dropping hugely from the launch of the i6, Samsung said "f*** it" and went the route of the iPhone model(they even are having authentication chips now in the S6 so that unauthorized 3rd party accessories wont work with the S6, like iPhones)
But all of this is actually really fantastic and other OEM's should follow. I am actually glad Samsung went this route, no doubt about it the S6 is gonna be absolutely fantastic too and its surely been heavily influenced by Apple and iPhone 6
The S6 from what we have seen with leaks and renders from case manufacturers shows us the S6 looks real dam similar to the iPhone 6 in design, but thats a good thing. I know some may disagree with this but contrary to popular belief, people really do like thin phones and they also want great battery life too
54. Alicia8870 (Posts: 28; Member since: 16 Feb 2015)
Its all about the sound quality, and the camera for me.
