Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy S6, and a curved-screen variant called the Galaxy S6 Edge, at its Mobile World Congress announcement early next month. The phones look like this. Aside from a few specs and information on prices and dates, that's about all you need to know. But the leaked images were pretty tiny, so Sprint has been kind enough to leak some more for us. It doesn't include the bottom portion of the phone, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess there's a home button down there. Thanks, Sprint!


OK, so it's probably not intentional. The image of the S6 and S6 Edge was posted on this thread on the Sprint subreddit, from a user whom the mods have marked as a "verified employee" of Sprint. The image's text is self-explanatory: it's a giveaway for those who give Sprint their email addresses in order to know the minute that the phones become available from Sprint stores. Of course it could be fake, but it seems like a fairly standard move for a device launch, and the "leaked" image uses the same campy "six appeal" marketing tagline as Sprint's pre-release message. The pre-release image also matches both the previous leak and the new one.


I'm still not sure why anyone needs a phone with two curved edges on the screen, and the glimpses of the standard Galaxy S6 don't make it seem particularly mind-blowing. Here's hoping Samsung is saving something a little more interesting for its presentation in just three days.
