New antenna tech on the Galaxy S6 will ensure antennagate doesn’t repeat itself

Apple certainly lost a few scores of fans when the iPhone 4 was found to have antenna problems, thanks to the all-metal casing around the phone. A few generations later, Samsung seems to be prepared to launch an all-metal Galaxy S series flagship, which is due in less than a week’s time from now. What’s good about the phone, or so it appears, is that Samsung has learned from Apple’s mistake and is going to implement an advanced antenna technology on the Galaxy S6 which will ensure there’s no loss in signal quality despite the internals of the phone being enclosed in metal and glass all the way around.

According to a report originating out of Korea, Samsung will make the switch from Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) antenna type to flexible PCB (FPCB) on the Galaxy S6 in order to allow for maximum antenna exposure, and thus, better signal reception. So, hows the Galaxy S6 shaping up in your mind thus far? If you missed it, Samsung (via T-Mobile) also posted a teaser earlier today that confirmed an Edge version of the Galaxy S6 was indeed in the works.

A year before original iPhone and it had a round physical home button before iPhone, with 3G (not 2G like iPhone), dual front n back cameras, gesture based touchscreen and no freaking physical keyboard. I just find it amazing that a… Read more »
