As you all probably know by now, Samsung will hold their “Unpacked” in Barcelona as part of MWC (Mobile World Congress) on March 1st. The company is set to launch their Galaxy S6 flagship at the event, the much-rumored handset which has been teased extensively by the company lately. The Galaxy S6 Edge handset with curved display on both left and right sides is rumored to launch alongside the Galaxy S6.
As we’re waiting for Samsung’s event, new reports are coming in. The newest one comes from Korea Herald, and says that Samsung gave certain carriers a sneak peak at both of these devices, and left them speechless in a way. The report says that Samsung offered the executives of T-Mobile, Sprint, Vodafone and Korea SK Telecom a sneak peak at the device, and the reaction were more than great. They really liked the new design of the Galaxy S devices. “Some executives said the new phones were the best of the best among Samsung-made phones,” said an unnamed source.
The report goes on saying that the executives were more interested in the Galaxy S6 Edge, which sports curved display on both sides. “They said the Edge was better than Apple’s iPhone 6 in terms of design,” said the aforementioned unnamed source. The report also says that Samsung has already met with a lot of carriers in order to agree on marketing plans and release schedule.
“The S6 will become a new driving force for Samsung’s growth, outselling the S5 at least,” said Noh Keun-chang, an analyst at HMC Investment & Securities. Samsung has been hyping up these two devices for quite some time now, and many people think this is “make-it-or-break-it year for the company. Their profits went down significantly last year, and Apple managed to catch up to them. We’ll see if these new Galaxy S devices are really worth all this hype. Do you think Samsung will get back on track with the help of the new Galaxy S devices, or do you think they won’t make much of a difference in the market?
