Rumor reappears: Samsung to showcase the Galaxy S6 in the following few days, but there's a catch

SamMobile, the info reasserts that the Android heavyweight will, after all, unveil several "variants" of the successor to the Galaxy S5 during the aforementioned expo, but only to "selected partners". What exactly that means is up for speculation, though we could imagine that Samsung is hard at work trying to reassure its many partners of its continuing efforts to keep on top of things over at its lately struggling smartphone division. As for the variants part, this is a fairly obvious reference to the rumored Galaxy S6 Edge model.Courtesy of
Keep in mind that none of this is verifiable, and even if true, we probably won't even know for sure. The only thing we do know for sure is that a Galaxy S6 announcement as early as the beginning of January would be a serious departure from the past, as the company's S line usually sees its refresh happen a bit later in the year (anywhere from the end of February to sometime in May). That said, one could argue that shaking things up a bit (or a lot) is what Samsung needs right now.
We'll keep you folks posted.

Chinese phone brand are great . As they help to build a better connected world . Not everyone has excess money to buy overpriced I-junks and Soomsungs . China is the workshop of the world . Chinese are working , that's why the demand of huge population of the world is met .

Oh yes. Chinese phone brands are great. They help to build a better connected world, the world of cheap electronic devices which last only in a few months. Give me a break. I don't know how good Chinese devices in China land, but their products for export are not good at all.

Tell that to Apple mate. The iPhone is even doing considerable well in China even tho its a lot more expensive. That's the power a brand gives you. Samsung seems to have watered it's down with the 100+ subpar phones it rains down on us

A public announcement of the S6 now would be a financial disaster: there are huge inventories of unsold Galaxy S5 is still in the warehouse and making their way through the supply chain. Announcing the S6 now would see demand for the S5 get hammered even further, forcing deep discounts that were not supposed to happen for months at least 3 more months. They're not that stupid.
