South Korean publication, Korea Herald, is reporting that Samsung has plans to launch an "innovative premium handset" this year that will feature some form of a "special function". Samsung teased the news during its recent earnings call, but didn't add anything more. We could expect some innovation version of the Galaxy S6, or two separate models, no one knows for sure just yet.

ZDNet Korea is also chiming in, with Samsung Mobile Vice President, Park Jin Young stating that the Galaxy S6 will launch on schedule with no supply shortages. This even takes into considerations that Samsung has ditched Qualcomm and its reportedly problematic Snapdragon 810 processor for its own Exynos chip, as well as an all-metal chassis.
