Will add-on accessories be the Galaxy S6’s strongest suite?


Last updated: January 27th, 2015 at 15:23 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s next big thing is right around the corner, and everyone, right from the consumer to the retailer, and wholesaler to accessories maker are on their toes in anticipation. Each time there’s a Samsung flagship launch or an iPhone launch, the market is abuzz with all kinds of new accessories. While these accessories for a major part have been inexpensive add-ons that compliment the device’s functionality, they’ve now started becoming essential parts of the ecosystem that many can’t do without.

From what we’re hearing, the Galaxy S6 will rely heavily on accessories to put forth its agenda of being one of the best devices on the planet. This includes, but will probably not be limited to, features such as:

• Extended S Health: You’ll be able to measure blood sugar in addition to things like heart rate right from the comfort of your home, without depending on a standalone blood sugar measuring machine. What’s more, thanks to Samsung’s renewed interests in cloud computing, you’ll be able to upload the results to the cloud for the doctor to take a look at.

• Secondary e-ink display: You’ve probably seen accessories like this for the iPhone in the past. It’ll be a secondary display for e-book lovers and the like, which will not only make reading easy on the eyes, but on the battery as well.

• Add on camera lenses: Samsung’s been pretty active with standalone cameras, and it could offer K Zoom-like optical zoom to the upcoming Galaxy S6 via means of detachable lenses!

Besides these, Samsung is also said to be working on sports equipment such as bicycles, steppers, etc. that will be able to bind to the Galaxy S6 to give you an even more in-depth overview of your fitness activities.
