In today’s Samsung Galaxy S6 news, it would appear that the Korean tech giant’s upcoming flagship smartphone will look strikingly similar to one of its biggest competitors, the iPhone 6. The folks over at Sammobile have recently uncovered a new leaked image allegedly showcasing the initial design of the device. As you probably already know, there are plenty of other images of the smartphone, however this seems to be one of the most believable yet according to the said website. We obviously can’t confirm that this rendering shows the actual Samsung Galaxy S6, but if it does, you only need to take one quick glance at it to realize that Samsung drew a lot of inspiration from the iPhone 6 when designing their next flagship.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 sure looks a bit like the iPhone 6 in this leaked picture.

We can’t really tell you anything about the materials used based on this picture alone, but word on the street is that Samsung is finally dropping the plastic in favor of metal. The company has already proven that it can design good metallic phones with the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy A series. The next logical step would be to release a metallic flagship and that’s where the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes in. Naturally, this is just speculation for now, so keep that in mind. As for the leaked render, it goes without saying that is should be taken with a healthy pinch of salt, much like all the other leaks. That said, it would be interesting if Samsung were to launch an iPhone 6 look-alike, wouldn’t it? In any case, Apple fans are likely already having a field day thanks to this image.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 currently doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s almost certain that we’re going to see it on stage at the MWC 2015. The event is scheduled to take place between March 2-5 and should also serve as a launching pad for another highly anticipated flagship smartphone, HTC’s One M9, otherwise known as HTC Hima. It was previously rumored that the LG G4 will also be unveiled at the show, but this rumor was dispelled by LG late last month.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.
