Samsung on Monday sent out invites for a press event on March.1 in Barcelona, Spain.
The company provided few hints about what will be announced beyond saying, "What's Next". That could indicate that Samsung is all set to unravel its next big thing at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in early March of this year. The successor of the Galaxy S5 has been one among the most anticipated smartphones to hit the market in 2015.
Interestingly, Samsung's press invite hints that the next handset under its Galaxy S series will be curved. From the teaser above, it seems that the Galaxy S will have a curved display, just like the Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge.
Previous reports in the past have claimed that Samsung could unveil the Galaxy S6 with the dual-edged displays. That's certainly a possibility, as Samsung recently filed for a patent showing a curved design on both sides of the screen.
Many analyst believes that Samsung's Galaxy S6 will be made out of premium materials. Some media reports even suggested that the Galaxy S6 will run on a Samsung-made chipset rather than one from Qualcomm. Other reported specs of the Galaxy S6 include a 5-inch QHD screen (2560 x 1440), 4GB of RAM, 20.7MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front-facing shooter and LTE Cat. 6 connectivity.
Last year's Unpacked event at Mobile World Congress saw Samsung reveal a slew of smartwatches. This time around, though, we're expecting the arrival of a circular intelligent watch that's set to give Apple Watch a tough competition in terms of style.
For Samsung, the commercial success of the Galaxy S6 matters most for this established brand. The tech giant from South Korea reported its first annual profit decline for three years, so it's very obvious to assume that the Galaxy S6 will be critical for the company's financial health.
