Samsung Galaxy S6 Press Event Announced for MWC

The press invites for the Samsung Unpacked event this March have now gone out, welcoming the tech world to see the reveal of the new Samsung Galaxy S6.

This year’s flagship model from the Korean company will be launched on March the 1st – a day before the Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona, Spain and two variations of the S6 are expected to be announced.

The first Samsung Galaxy S6 model will feature a regular 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display and the other will introduce a new curved screen with touch functions and notifications displayed along both of its sides – just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge has on one side. And like Samsung’s phablet, this variant of the flagship model is likely to adopt the name Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

An alternate design for Samsung’s annual premium handset has been teased unofficially over the recent months and if you take a look at the intriguing invite, which asks ‘What’s Next‘ it shows very little else than a sleek curved line, it would confirm this rumour will become truth as we edge towards the beginning of a new month.

Other rumoured specifications of the Galaxy S6 include Samsung’s own Exynos 7 chipset providing octa-core processing – this replaces Qualcomm’s Snapdragon after reports of overheating in manufacturing tests.

The S6 will also feature Android 5.0 Lollipop and come with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options and owners can expect longer periods between charges thanks to the 2550mAh battery and a new wireless charging method. Both the regular S6 and S6 Edge handsets will arrive LTE/4G capable and include connectivity through BlueTooth and NFC with Samsung Pay.

With MWC and the launch of Samsung’s latest and greatest less than a month away we can probably expect a few good leaks to spring in these next few weeks before the Galaxy S6 makes its official debut.
