Carriers start sharing official Galaxy S6 pics
One week from now, the mystery will be over. Samsung will have its Unpacked event behind it, and we’ll be talking about the Galaxy S6 no longer in the context of rumor and theories, but as a phone that’s very much here, having just launched in Barcelona. Until March 1 rolls around, however, it looks like there are going to be plenty of last-minute reveal to keep us busy, and some of the latest come from Samsung’s US carrier partners, as they share some interesting new imagery of the next Samsung flagship.
So far we’ve been talking about a regular flat-screened Galaxy S6, as well as a model that would repeat the curved-screen layout of the Note Edge (while possibly also extending the curve to a second edge). But what we see here in these pics from both AT&T and T-Mobile is something a bit outside our expectations: an apparent Galaxy S6 with only a subtly curved edge.
At least compared to the Note Edge, the degree of the curve here is minimal, with just a smidge of screen peeking out from beyond the phone’s face. What the heck does that mean for our expectations from Samsung? Well, this could be the Galaxy S6 itself – and the wording the carriers are using sure seems to hint as much (or at least the the Edge version would also carry that “six” branding). Or maybe this is the Galaxy S (6) Edge, and it will just have less pronounced curves than the Note Edge (maybe to make up for the fact that it will have them on two sides).
Wherever the truth lies, we’re clearly not quite to the bottom of the Galaxy S6’s story.
