The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S6 will reportedly launch on March 2 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The news comes as part of a report from Korean site, The Chosun Ilbo, and lines up with past release dates of Galaxy S phones. In 2014, Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 at MWC, and both of the first two Galaxy S phones launched at Mobile World Congress.
The announcement also places the Galaxy S6 toe-to-toe with the upcoming HTC One (M9), which is also set to launch at MWC. Fortunately, the event won’t be overly crowded with flagships, as LG has confirmed that it will not be launching the G4 at MWC, instead spending more time on “perfecting the new phone”.
Leaks have allowed us to build a picture of the Galaxy S6 that involves an improved fingerprint sensor, QHD display, Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 20-megapixel rear camera. Samsung is also said to be redesigning the software from the ground up, with a heavy emphasis on optimization for the device, to ensure speedy performance. Finally, Samsung is said to be working with a new design for the Galaxy S6, possibly involving metal and glass, which would be a marked departure from past Galaxy S phones that have used plastic. It’s also been rumored that the Galaxy S6 could have a variant with curved edges on the display, similar to the Galaxy Note Edge.
