Samsung Norway takes Galaxy S6 rumors and turns them into crazy, off-the-wall concepts


Sasmung Is This The Next countdown

By now, we’ve all heard a lot of crazy rumors regarding #TheNextGalaxy, the still unannounced Samsung Galaxy S6. Apparently Samsung Norway has been listening too, taking some of these rumors — some crazy, others not so much — and having some fun with them, transforming them into some pretty elaborate concept devices.

There’s 5 total posted on their new “Is this the next?” domain, the first dealing with front firing speakers and showing an almond shaped phone with pull out stereo speakers. The second concept quotes a rumor about durability and shows a phone with its own built-in airbag. For the third, Samsung takes 3-sided display rumors and dreams up a phone with a twisting triangular shaped design.

Samsung Norway Galaxy S6 concepts

For the larger display rumor, Samsung reaches back to their flexible AMOLED concept device shown at CES a few years back, displaying blueprints for a phone that extends into the size of a tablet. Finally, rumors of an “all-glass” Galaxy S6 are dreamed up into a phone that look like glass-blown Wii-motes, complete with little circuitry housed inside.

It’s definitely an interesting approach to the numerous rumors that leak out ahead of a phone’s launch. We’re not sure where Samsung Norway was going with this, but don’t take this as much of a confirmation of anything as it their way of saying they’re confident the real thing will blow you away. Only 4 days and 19 hours left to go. Our bodies are ready.

  2. I would bee them, just because they’re super different, lol, they look so 2024

  3. that first one is kinda sexy. very different from anything else out there

    1. That’s what I’m saying. OMG!! Them speakers are driving me insane!! But gaming on that would be quite difficult.

      I won’t be able to play Geometry Dash. =.[

      1. You wouldn’t be able to use any software on it, including the internet, that wasn’t specifically designed (which is stupid) or letterboxed (which defeats the entire purpose). That’s what separates realistic designs and concepts from idle fantasies.

  4. Who else sees the possibility of these actually having been prototypes? ;)

  5. The speaker concept would be great if the speakers folded out from the top instead of the bottom (where you will usually have your hands resting to use apps or play games), and is 5000% likely to be infinitely more interesting than whatever boring slab Samsung will actually unveil.

  6. love em

  7. Samsung rocks

  8. different from anything else

  9. This is what happens when you are stuck inside with really short days (sunlight) during the winter.

  10. Another S6 rumor….

    “insane off-contract prices. For the Galaxy S6, Ars Technica reports that the phone is listed at $849, $963, and $1,076 for the 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models respectively. These prices are what Samsung will sell the phones for to carriers, and have also been converted from Euros, meaning they could fluctuate a tad. More startling are the prices for the GS6 Edge, which is reportedly listed at $1,076 for the 64GB version and $1,189 for the 128GB model.”
