It seems like most people are pretty happy with the direction Samsung is heading in with the new Galaxy S6. With a far more premium construction and less bloat to slow things down, the device has had a lot of praise heaped on it. However, with no removable battery or external storage, a lot of purists have expressed frustration with the GS6.
But it looks like most folk are loving it. According to Samsung’s president of IT and mobile communications division, Shin Jong-kyun, pre-orders for the device are “pouring in,” and stock prices are rising and are expected to continue to rise. It looks like the device will be a big success and might turn Samsung’s fortune around, as the company has been in a slight decline lately.
He also explains Samsung’s lack of wearables at MWC 2015, saying that the company is focusing on the flagship smartphone, as they should. Wearables are taking a backseat at the moment, but we should expect to see a “new superior wearable” soon. Despite Samsung being one of the first to the wearable game, it hasn’t been one of the best so I’m excited to see what it can come up with.
