Did Samsung Norway reveal some features of the Samsung Galaxy S6?

Did Samsung Norway reveal some features of the Samsung Galaxy S6?
Samsung Norway might have leaked some of the features of the new Samsung Galaxy S6. By posting three rumors about the handset and accompanying each one with a ridiculous image, we wonder if we are seeing a sneaky way to leak out information about Sammy's new flagship model.

The first rumor says "One feature that we might see is forward-facing stereo speakers." The second reads "The new Galaxy is expected to be durable." The third and final rumor states that "Samsung Galaxy display is supposed to reach onto three sides." When was the last time you saw a manufacturer embrace rumors about a new phone that were posted by phone blogs? So it is possible that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a display that covers both sides, feature front-facing stereo speakers and stand up to drops and falls.

There is also a countdown timer that is ticking down to March 1st. That's when the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are expected to be unveiled during MWC 2015 in Barcelona.


Thanks for the tip, Akkel1!

Front facing speakers. Nice. I don't care about quality much as I use headphones but make them loud.

I care about how good the product I'm buying it. I don't care if it's a shameless copy. I would love a phone which combines the best of all OEMs to make an ultimate phone. Isn't this the dream.

Samsung's display/NAND/RAM + Nokia's camera/build quality + HTC's design/speakers + Sony's water resistance. Who will not want this kind of combination. I'm all in for it even if someone calls it a blatant copy. I care how good the end product is.

Some things which I don' troll (sammy's made): better cpu, better ram, better eMMC, better display, better batery, better camera, better weight, better factory assembling, better ... younameit. What else remains in our discusion: TW and metal frame. You will have it. And you will have some unique curved display (give some time to be a standard one). Anything else?

I wouldn't care who made it, if it's the ultimate phone - it's the ultimate phone so who wouldn't want it?

I don't get having loyalty to a company that some people seem to have, be loyal to your friends or family or even a dog but not a company. Be loyal to someone who cares about wether you're sad or happy or sick, someone you can share moments in life with, not a company that only cares how much money they can get from you.

Wise answer, while some people here fighting for their precious brand. I think we customer shouldn't care about that, we should care about what we are getting for the price we paid.

Exactly

Also there's plenty of times Apple, Sony, HTC, Google, LG have taken hints from Samsung

Like mareh said the Note 10.1 had front facing stereo speakers before the HTC One M7
Apple's reachability is copied from Samsung's one handed mode
Samsung has multi window, I bet (and want) Apple and Google to eventually copy it

They all copy each other to some degree

HTC didn't invent front stereo speakets. Samsung were one of the 1st OEMs to use it matter of fact, the Note 10.1 announced in 2012 had front stereo speakers.
As for the side trim, we are not sure how the S6 will look like, but Apple didn't invent those either. The Note 2 and S3 had rounded edges.
But while you're at it, why didn't you criticize Apple for shamelessly copying HTC's design language? What's worst is the ugly way they implemented the antena bands on the iPhone, as if a kid had a white correction pen and started doodling all over it's back panel

exactly.. galaxy music had that front speakers about half a year before the one m7 came out, yet htc fanboys still ignore that fact and continue to think it's htc who came out with that !!

just look for galaxy player 5.8 in google and stop posting misleading info (iam talking to anktip)

yeah thats what stupid uneducated people just say .. samsung is a copycat

i didnt say samsung invented front speakers you damn moron, i said it existed in samsung devices before htc .. there is a big difference between these two points .. but again stupid moron wont understand that

we had enough with die hard fanboys claiming that company A came up with something first, then everyone is copying company A, now die hard fanboys (and haters at the same time) are saying that it doesn't matter what does really matter is who marketed and advertised that feature first loooool fanboys stupid logic !!!

with your logic i can say that best photo feature that was found in Galaxy S3 belongs to samsung regardless that sony had it long time ago in there phones (i dont remember what sony phone had it but it is about 9 years old) since samsung marketed it better that sony !!

you are a moron,..if htc didnot suceeded ,then sony now samsung wouldnt have came up with stereo sound front firing speakers on latest devices which they had tested on earlier devices..htc changed the game of how speakers of phone should be...so goes to mobile cameras..people donot want invention they want trend..they want their companies to follow the trend of high megapixel..you are uneducated moron and argue like a s**t

The front facing speakers & durability are appealing factors, its time a Galaxy phone produced quality sound. Based on the Note 4s QHD, the display should be equally amazing.

Well front facing speakers are alright, unfortunately quite a few people seem to think that this means they should blast out sound in public transportation and such places via those speakers.

They have their place, but yeah it is really rather limited situations, that said a welcome change.

I'm sure quite a few people do quite a few things they shouldn't in quite a few situations. Maybe for any announcement or article we can post irrelevant comments about them.

Well phones are alright, unfortunately quite a few people seem to think this means they should use them to talk on them in public transportation such places where we have to hear them.

Eh, if you are referring to my comment being irrelevant, I do not agree. I feel that the situations where you'd want to use phone speakers for any sort of output music/video what have you are quite limited and you can easily solve it by using earphones?

But yeah it is unfortunate people make use of it like this, it might be the reason I don't see it as something positive (though it isn't negative either) that there's a 'better' speaker.

Plus, Israel don't need to defend themselves atm, ISIS is doing the job for them

Obama helping Iran develop nuclear weapons. He wants to sign an agreement with them that will enable them to have nuclear weapons. I want you to open a map and see where Israel is located. It is surrounded by radical Muslim countries and enemies from every direction. Israel needs to obtain high-level weapons, and the United States help her friendship, like Israel.

Israel did not steal any land. I'm all for bringing land to the Palestinians but only on condition that security and peace agreement will be made with someone reliable and well, not as Abu Mazen, the terrorist who established a partnership with the murderous terrorist organization Hamas, who believes they should occupy whole Israel and return it to the Palestinians, which was not theirs ever .

And sorry for my poor english ):

what makes your country the authority to say who can use nuclear enegy and who can't? FYI USA is the only country who have ever used nuclear bombs agains humans! not one, but two of them. I beleive that every country should be able to use nuclear energy and no one should have nuclear weapons. but that will make us weak in case of probable alien attacks so it should be up to UN to decide how and where humans can make nuclear weapons and store them.

If he is going to sign an agreement allowing this, what exactly is being negotiated? Aren't the negotiations between 5 other countries (P5 +1), and not just Obama? Who gave Isreal the Iron Dome missile defense system? Who has implemented the toughest sactions against Iran?
