Samsung Galaxy S6 launch date official: March 1

Samsung Galaxy S6 launch date official: March 1We’re still not entirely sure what to expect from Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in March, but Samsung was tipped to play a big part, and it’s now official.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 launch is 99.999% confirmed for March 1, 24 hours before the annual Barcelona conference opens its doors officially.

That’s the word according to, well, the official Samsung invite doing the rounds. It reads simply “WHAT’S NEXT” and invites journalists to Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 on March 1 in Barcelona.

I say the Galaxy S6 launch date is “99.999% confirmed” since Samsung doesn’t mention the S6 by name, but we all know what’s going down here, right?

The not so mysterious shape in the Samsung Galaxy S6 launch invite is clearly a curved device akin to the Galaxy Note Edge. The Galaxy S6 is widely tipped to launch in two flavours, specifically one with a metal body, and one with two edge displays.

Rumoured Samsung Galaxy S6 specs include a bigger-than-5in QHD display (2560 x 1440), Exynos processor, 3GB of RAM, 20MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS), 5MP front “selfie” camera, and significantly streamlined TouchWiz.

We don’t expect the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be waterproof, which gives credence to the idea of a ruggedised Galaxy S6 Active at some point.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S Edge, you’ll be able to stick shortcuts and news tickers down the sides, where you can also house an always-on alarm clock while the main display sleeps.

Again, full story from the Samsung Galaxy S6 launch on March 1 – that’s three weeks this Sunday!
