A Samsung senior official has been quoted in Korean media, stating that the company’s next flagship, the Galaxy S6, will indeed be announced at the MWC in Barcelona, specifically on March 2. What’s more, Samsung has developed several prototypes and is yet to determine which exactly will become official.
This goes in line with the multitude of contradicting rumors and leaked images. Apparently, the company is simply surveying user opinions, by feeding the buzzwords unibody and glass back panel to the press. Samsung still don’t have their mind set on whether a dual-edge screen version will see the light of day, the same source claims.
The choice of hardware is also a persistent topic in the news, with reports that Samsung will go for an in-house Exynos chipset instead of the Snapdragon 810.
Meanwhile, an LG executive has denied that the company plans to reveal the G4 in Barcelona, instead focusing on wearables. The company’s position is that with the May 2014 launch of the G3, they still have plenty of time to develop its successor.
