The Galaxy S6 rumors are coming in thick and fast today, but this one could well be the juiciest so far. If a list of all the specifications Samsung has crammed into its next-generation flagship doesn’t get you super excited for its launch, then I don’t know what will.

At this point we’re expecting a lot of great things from the Galaxy S6 — including stellar specifications and an all-new design. But like any other smartphone, it won’t be perfect. According to a new report, Samsung’s next-generation flagship will drop one of the features that made the Galaxy S5 so great: water-resistance.

Samsung is looking to deliver a more fluid software experience with the Galaxy S6 having finally listened to our complaints about TouchWiz. One of the ways in which it will do that is with a more streamlined operating system, but sources say the South Korean company is also going to max out the handset’s specifications as well just to be sure.

Wave goodbye to your removable batteries, Galaxy S fans, because it looks like Samsung could be ditching them for this year’s flagship. Sources say that the upcoming Galaxy S6 will have a high-end glass back panel similar to that of earlier iPhones or Sony’s Xperia Z devices, and you won’t be able to pull it off yourself.

Samsung’s fingerprint scanners could be some of the worst available in today’s mobile devices; they’re so unreliable that most people don’t even bother with them. But sources familiar with the company’s plans say it is working to change that for the upcoming Galaxy S6.

How? By copying Apple, of course.
