Samsung sent invitations to the press for an event where it will take the wraps off its next flagship, the Galaxy S6.
Rumors consistent in recent months have been that the Galaxy S6 will come in two versions, with flat and rounded screens. Samsung was also expected to adopt a dual-edge design on the new phone, but it seems that concerns over defect rates of curved glasses have forced the company to abandon that plan.
The upoming 'Galaxy Unpacked' event will be held at Mobile World Congress on March 1st. As you see below, there is a "What’s Next" tagline and a silhouette of a curve.
For sure, we should expect an updated Galaxy S6 camera, upgraded fingerprint sensor, new premium materials, more horsepower and a metal build. Glass will be used on the front and back sides of the device.
The device is also expected to feature a 5.1-inch Quad HD OLED display, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 3/4GB of RAM, and Samsung Pay, the company's response to Apple Pay.
The existing Galaxy Note Edge has a display that extends down one side giving quick access to buttons, apps and widgets without interrupting action on the main screen.
