Two new Galaxy S6 image teasers suggest great battery life, fast charging?
By now one thing should be obvious – Samsung has initiated its Galaxy S6 marketing campaign, and we likely won't go a day without a new teaser that is meant to drive hype up around its next flagship. Case in point: After publishing a second video teaser yesterday, Samsung then went on to also tweet out two new image teasers within the next 12 hours. 

Like before, the teasers are quite ambiguous. So much so, in fact, that we're now starting to think that battery features, not performance, is what Samsung was trying to communicate all along. For example, the first of the two reads "Stop less. Discover more.", which sounds like a reference to either great battery life or quick charging tech. It's also been suggested by some of our readers that Samsung could be talking about wireless charging, too. 

What do you think?

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.

Without good marketing normal consumers wouldn't know there is a great device.

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"

Isn't a "3", like 3 days autonomy ?

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.

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

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.!

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.

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.

I think the charger will be a wireless charging dock... That would be cool.

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.

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.

Well, it won't just be software optimization. Their new chip is 14 nm and consumes less energy than previous generations.

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).

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

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
