HTC won’t be hogging the spotlight on March 1st when they look to make their big announcement at Mobile World Congress. Samsung has reportedly started dishing out invites to press for an event on the same day.
The invite is really thin on details, naturally, but they do tease us with a curved contour of what could be a smartphone. We’re all expecting the South Korean company to announce the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the curve could confirm rumors that a special version of the Galaxy S6 with a curved edge display ala the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is also coming to town.
That’s as much as Samsung wants to reveal. Early rumors indicate the company is looking to launch a brand new design for the release of this smartphone. We’re expecting a metal unibody build, and one that uses tempered glass on the back to add to its looks. The Samsung Galaxy S6 specs should look something like the following:
- 5.1 inch 2560 x 1440 display
- Samsung Exynos Octa-Core chipset
- 3GB of RAM
- 20.0MP rear camera, 5.0MP front camera
- 2550 mAh non-removable battery
- Android 5.0 Lollipop and the latest version of TouchWiz
Sounds like it has all the makings for a smartphone worthy of attention, but we won’t know for sure until Samsung delivers the details. We’ll be toting our bags to Mobile World Congress so be sure to circle your calendars and ready up.
