Samsung will reportedly unveil the Galaxy S6 on March 2, circle your calendars!
The influx of rumors regarding the upcoming forerunner of Samsung's, the Galaxy S6, will likely end only after the device gets official.

The rumor mill is churning speculation after speculation about the phone - it is now said to come sans an allegedly-overheating Snapdragon 810 and make use of an Exynos chipset, sport 4GB of RAM (similar to the likes of the Asus ZenFone 2 and the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro), and last but not least, have no water-resistance whatsoever. These are only rumors, of course, and we wouldn't scratch the Galaxy S6 Edge territory.

Well, here follows a rumor that reportedly reveals when all other rumors will hold little to no value - according to a South Korean media, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S6 at a dedicated Unpacked event on March 2, a day that will also mark the begging of this year's MWC exhibition. This also falls in line with the rest of the rumors regarding the announcement of this flagship, which will either "make or break" Samsung's market positions.

To be completely honest, it is almost certain that Samsung will unveil its "Project Zero" device at MWC, thus this alleged announcement date might turn out to be one of the spot-on speculations. Until the Galaxy S6 breaks cover, be sure to check out some of the more plausible new features of the Samsung Galaxy S6.

I love the hype but it's a bit annoying that every other article is on the possibilities of what the phone might be. I just hope the hype calms down a bit until it finally comes out.

Only Apple, Samsung, and to an extent HTC really get that kinda press....Nexus a little too. I remember the droidheads were dogging the "what the iPhone might look like articles", über hating. I won't stoop to their level. Let's let them have their moment bro :D

Lol word I guess I'm not excited because I usually get a new phone by the end of the year. Hope this is a monster though

I say Samsung steps it up a notch, or two. They have a lotta $!!!heads for fans, but they're a really great company.

Hey, don't praise Samsung. Your fake admiration of Samsung is just an irony. Goodluck with the iBend 6 plus.

Stop me from giving them praise, and my 6plus is just fine. When I sell it in September to get the new one, the resale value will be very high. One of the perks we iPhone users enjoy. Now, stop me from giving them praise.

Those "rumor" articles are their favorite. No actually facts need to be given, because everything is just a rumor :P

Some of the rumors are a given though like a better processor and a different design. Just want to see the finished product lol

I'm looking forward to seeing it too. They did a nice job restyling the N4, while keeping true to its lineage. It'll be a hit, as well as a nice looking device.

Like the sapphire glass? Lol
what's kinda ironic though, is that you iSheeps rejoice when you read an article saying that the iPhone 6s MIGHTTT come with a 2GB of ram, while Android fans are enjoying true multitasking on our 3GB of ram phones. Or how you're stuck with an 8MP camera and waiting for the next 'rumored' 13mp iPhone, when 13MP is a 2 years old feature for Samsung and Android fans.

It's all good bro. How're you liking your devices?
I'm liking my 6plus, but I'm missing my android fix, thinking of grabbing something off of Craigslist.

I'm really loving my iPhone its a solid device. I wish I took more pictures though but I have so much stuff that I don't use them to their capacity.

I find myself shooting a lotta time lapse, it works really well. I've got some great time lapse driving down the strip man. My pics sit at 2,388, I deleted about 400+. A few hiccups here and there, but it's a trusty device.

Talk tech? Lmao
Go check the exynos's article and take a note on how to "talk tech".
Highfiving your fellow iZombies, bromancing with them on this site, and showing your passionate love to Apple products and NEVERRR complaining about 1 single flaw in their products, isn't considered talking tech.
Not to mention your obsession with Arte and the need to bring him up in your fights with Android fans when the guy himself never gave the attention you are seeking for.
There is a reason behind your well deserved name, Fakejeddi.

Is the S6 royality as the Note?
Different class altogether no?

Shock, if it had the S-Pen, maybe. That one feature truly sets the Note series apart from any other. It's truly the best phablet on the market, bar none. Gotta give it up where it's due.

30. tedkord (Posts: 10663; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)


I just don't see that happening. The S-Pen is the defining feature of the Note series. They're not going to dilute it. But, who knows?

I agree with you ted, keep it Note exclusive, or equip all Galaxy phones with it.

Yeah, I just trying to answer buddy there with my weak understanding of SS flagships.
I was or am under assumption these are two different classes like you are suggesting.

No doubt, kudos to SS for Note series.
Cheers, let's see if WP kicks arse or lands on its own again today!!

Yes, 2 March is not too long. I'm going to celebrate a big party with my classmates on the day of the Galaxy S6 announcement. Yes, it sounds a bit silly, but we really long for it.

have you read this?http://www.phonearena.com/news/Apples-new-iPh​ones-have-a-smashing-November-in-Asia_id65048 it says -"No foreign brand has gone beyond the 20% market share mark in the history of Korea’s smartphone industry. It has always been dominated by the global smartphone leader, Samsung. But iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have made a difference here, denting the competition’s phablet sales."-Tom Kang, research director for mobile devices, Counterpoint

You mean the article that confirms Samsung is still in the number 1 slot by a good margin?

33. SuperNova (banned) (Posts: 649; Member since: 15 Jan 2015)


Yes, i read it. Don't be too happy. The reason Apple claims the 2nd place is because some Korean people tended to change their new phone. Since they already tasted Samsung and LG phones, then they might want to try another one. It was nothing besides iPhone (Yeah, for their first time to own an iPhone). But that's gonna change their mind when they realized that iPhone was not a genius like some Apple fanboys claimed. After that, iPhone would never be in those Koreans mind anymore.

No they just came back from what they usually buy. Samsung and lg were just tested now apple will soon become number one in korea just like before

Tiara, since you once told me that you're a Korean fandom, I'm really gratefull to see how a wonderful chance that I can meet a stranger who has a tendency toward Korea. Even so, your false perception about Korea just to challenge me is a bit painful for all Korean people. I don't know why you're against Samsung and LG, but at least you shoudn't have lied to yourself which brands really are popular in Korea.

Just Hope after the Rumours we got with the Galaxy S5 last year,Samsung does not let us Down with Galaxy S6,but Samsung knew the Galaxy S5 was not a Outstanding Smartphone with the Presentation that they put on last year,as the Galaxy S4 was alot better Presentation by Samsung
