Case makers spill the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge ahead of MWC unveiling
Can’t wait until Mobile World Congress to get your first glimpse at Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge? Well, thanks to third-party case makers, you don’t have to.
Both devices have been leaked in promotional photos for upcoming cases, and they sport a somewhat familiar look.
Photos like these are always a little disappointing. While they do give us an early glimpse at upcoming handsets, thanks to the cases themselves, we rarely get to appreciate the intricacies of the design. But at least something is saved for the official unveiling.
The image above suggests the Galaxy S6 won’t look vastly different to its predecessor, though the arrangement of its rear-facing camera has certainly changed, and it appears to have more rounded edges — as recent leaks have suggested.
It’s still hard to tell exactly what the back of the device will be made out of; some rumors have promised glass, others have promised metal, but it still looks a little plasticky in this picture. Again, perhaps that’s simply because of the case itself.
As for the S6 Edge, which can be seen in the image below, there definitely appears to curved glass on both sides of the device. From what we can tell, that’s a regular Galaxy S6 without a case on the far left, and an S6 Edge without a case stood up on the far right.
The S6 Edge can also be seen laying down.
Samsung is expected to announce both the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge, which names were confirmed by recent trademark filings, at MWC on March 1. We’ll have to wait until then to find out when they’ll go on sale, but you may be able to pick them up before the end of next month.
