Mobile World Congress is only a week away, but it seems Samsung's efforts in concealing details of its upcoming flagship from the public may just go in vain.
While confirming that T-Mobile will be the official carrier of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6, T-Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted a link to the company's pre-order page that contained an image of Samsung's most closely guarded secret this year.
Featuring a 'Six Appeal' graffiti, the image reveals a sleek device with prominent curved display, like in the Samsung Note Edge. However, the single angle does not indicate if the new display will be curved on both edges. The image also revealed a shiny black metal-look frame as against the traditional plastic or faux leather body that usually make an appearance in Galaxy S smartphones.
In addition to its home-made chip powering the Galaxy S6, Samsung has also invested in an advanced quad HD Super AMOLED display for a crystal clear view.
The same display also appeared in the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 4. However, the much hyped integration of the LoopPay wireless payment system may not take place with the Galaxy S6, given that Sumsung completed the acquisition just days ahead of MWC.
The feature will be available in newer Samsung devices to be launched later in the year. With an expected all-new wireless charging technology as well as internal storage of up to 128GB and a minimum of 4GB RAM, the new flagship could give the top-end gadgets a run for their money, if not the Apple iPhone 6 just yet.
However, with dropping revenues over the past couple of years, Samsung will be hoping for a miracle. As revealed by T-Mobile's CEO today, the Galaxy S6 does look sleek and attractive to begin with.
We hope there'll be more surprises come March. Even though Samsung claims that the Galaxy S6 will be a revolution in smartphone technology, we may already know a thing or two about the gadget by the time it is launched during Mobile World Congress next week.
