Samsung Galaxy S6 and Edge spotted before MWC reveal

Newly leaked photos show the front and back sides of two versions of what’s being reported as being the upcoming Galaxy S6 which has already revealed impressive benchmarks.

The images show two handsets: one that looks similar to last year’s Galaxy S5 and one with a curved edge, which would be in line with earlier rumors that suggested Samsung’s next flagship would come in regular and “Edge” versions.

The interesting thing about the Edge device in the photo is that it appears not to have the special app menu like the Galaxy Note Edge does.

Other rumors have suggested the S6 will have metal components in the body of the phone instead of the typical plastic frame. Needless to say that side of things is impossible to make out the materials from these photos.

Samsung has already hinted at a curved screen with its press invitations to next week’s event. Promotional photos, leaked earlier this month, also depicted five different versions of the phone, at least one of which had a curved display.

All will be revealed when Samsung takes the wraps off of the Galaxy S6 at an event during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on March 1.

I will be at the UK HTC event to hopefully witness the unveiling of the One M9 but I shall be also keeping an eye on the Samsung live stream.
