The latest Galaxy S6 rumors, Windows 10 for phones preview, and the HTC Desire 626: weekly news round-up
It is Monday again – the beginning of what we hope to be another week full of fun and productivity. Let's start by taking another look at the most exciting stories from the past 7 days, shall we? To no surprise, our weekly news round-up is loaded with Samsung Galaxy S6 rumors. One of them suggests that the smartphone, along with its curvier counterpart, the rumored Galaxy S6 Edge, will come with 5.1-inch displays. It is also believed that both will be metal-made, at least partially.
In other news, Microsoft released the technical preview of Windows 10 for Phones. Owners of select Lumia smartphones may opt in to test-drive the upcoming release of the OS. The final version of Windows 10 for Phones won't be ready until the year's second half, however.
HTC, in the meantime, announced a new affordable smartphone. It is known as the HTC Desire 626 and it is expected to retail for under $200 without a contract. That's a pretty decent price for what you get in exchange hardware-wise – a 64-bit, quad-core, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 SoC, a 5-inch display with 720 by 1280 pixels, and 1GB of RAM, among other goodies.
