Galaxy S6 leaked design

The Galaxy S6 is definitely the most awaited smartphone of the year. As a result, many rumors hint that Samsung’s forthcoming flagship will innovate when it comes to design. Even the South Korean company has said that future handsets will be made using new materials, so Galaxy S6 won’t be made out of plastic.

Recently, the casemaker Spigen has published a few pictures with Galaxy S6 cases, showing us details such as camera and heart rate sensor position which are different when compared to the Galaxy S5. Spigen has been accurate with their leaks about design elements for Android devices, showing them publicly on its own cases ahead of their official announcement.

Right now, their pictures are somewhat confirmed by another accessory maker through a few leaked schematics which reveal the smartphone’s design. Also, now we know the exact measurements for the forthcoming flagship. So, Galaxy S6 measures 143.52 x 70.70 x 7.19 mm (Galaxy S5 measures 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm). As you can see, Galaxy S6 will be slightly taller, narrower and thinner when compared to the Galaxy S5. The leaked schematics also reveal some design elements. For example, the heart rate sensor is placed on the right side next to the camera. Also, the speakers seem to be on the bottom side, not on the back, a design element we have seen on Galaxy Alpha, too.

My advice is to take this information with a grain of salt until Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S6 at MWC 2015 in March. In the meantime, make sure you check out the said schematics below, courtesy of Nowhereelse.fr.

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.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
