Samsung confirms metal Galaxy S6 design in latest teaser

Samsung has confirmed a metal Galaxy S6 design is on the way as it teases the eagerly awaited handset ahead of its March 1 unveiling.

With the Korean manufacturer steadily building the hype ahead of its next flagship phone announcement, the company’s latest teaser video has promised a new metal form factor.

A feature long tipped to be bestowed on Samsung’s flagship phone line, the S6’s metal design will likely echo those already handed to the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and oversized Galaxy Note 4.

“Tomorrow, metals will flow. Beauty will be powerful. Boarders will disappear. Reflections will be free. Colours will live. The future will be the present,” the S6 teaser video announces.

As well as making reference to a new metal build, the video offers tantalising glimpses at the upcoming Galaxy S5 follow-on.

The latest video follows a week of official teases, with Samsung having previously promised its upcoming iPhone 6 rival will feature everything from an improved camera and premium styling to a new Exynos processor and faster memory.

With MWC 2015 set to be held between March 2 and 5, Samsung has confirmed it will hold a dedicated press conference ahead of the show on March 1.

The Galaxy S6 is widely expected to be the star of this show, with the HTC One M9 challenger to feature a new, 5.2-inch QHD display alongside a 64-bit octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM.

Further Galaxy S6 features expected to make an appearance include a 20-megapixel rear-mounted camera, Google’s latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS and a newly refreshed, cleaner TouchWiz UI.
