Galaxy S6 edge Plus to be announced in the coming weeks?

Galaxy S6 Edge

Not long ago, we passed along rumors of Samsung giving the Galaxy Note 5 phablet an early July launch in order to get a lead before Apple’s iPhone announcements in September. Acting swiftly, Samsung’s JK Shin dismissed them, saying that no, the Galaxy Note 5 is not going to be a summer hit. He didn’t say, however, that there are absolutely no other announcements coming in this quarter whatsoever! And if the latest rumors are anything to get by, Samsung might, in fact, throw Android fans a bone.

According to hdblog.it, a Galaxy S6 Plus is being primed for an announcement in the coming weeks. Allegedly, Samsung called this one “Project Zero 2” internally, but this will actually be a larger version of the Galaxy S6 edge, which will retain the dual curved screen edges. Other ties to the Note line-up, such as S-Pen functionality, haven’t been mentioned.

What’s essentially a Galaxy S6 edge “Grand” strikes us as a rather odd product choice from Samsung, especially considering the rumors of a dual-edged Galaxy Note 5 announcement in September. While the latter sounds logical, the former is plain weird, but Samsung wouldn’t release such a thing if it didn’t make sense inside the company.

With this in light, the Galaxy Note 5 is still expected to show up around the IFA Conference in September, wielding a thin profile, an S Pen, and possibly a 4K resolution display. The rumored spec sheet has already made the successor to the Galaxy Note 4 one of the most hyped smartphones this year, with virtually no advertisement from Samsung.

US Carriers teases the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6!

Samsung Galaxy S6 photo leak T-Mobile

What do we have here? Yes, that is what appears to be the best teaser photo of the Samsung Galaxy S6 we’ve seen yet, as found on the T-Mobile website.

The page itself on the T-Mobile site offers little more than the image, embellished by the cheeky words “Six Appeal,” and a note to check back on March 1st. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Samsung will be officially announcing their latest flagship device next week, and that U.S. consumers will be able to at least pre-register, if not pre-order, from T-Mobile without delay after the announcement.

The device we are seeing in the T-Mobile image, appears to be the Edge variant of the device. With the curved sides of the display that wrap around just a little way. There is a touch of class borrowed from the Galaxy Note 4 here as well. Just look at that backing, that appears to be metal, and the shiny chromed metal looking ring garnishing the glass of the display, looks like metal to me.

Here’s the same device in AT&T blue, from here. Coming Spring 2015. Verizon red and Sprint yellow shouldn’t be far behind.
