Samsung Galaxy S6 cases already available for pre-order

A collection of Galaxy S6 cases have been made available for pre-order, despite the handset having yet to be formally unveiled.

With Samsung not expected to introduce its latest flagship phone until a pre-MWC press conference on March 1, case maker Spigen has jumped the gun, unveiling a selection of protective covers for the upcoming iPhone 6 rival.

As well as letting avid Samsung fans accessorise their smartphone aspirations, the prematurely unveiled cases have given yet another early look at the S6’s design.

Echoing past appearances, the Galaxy S5 follow-on has been shown to feature a sleek, 6.9mm thick, metal framed body with a protruding rear camera and heavily rounded corners.

A larger, fingerprint scanner incorporating physical home button can be spotted on the front, while an optical heart-rate monitor sits beside the camera around back.

The nine-strong fleet of Galaxy S6 cases are available for pre-order through Spigen’s official website, with the collection covering off everything from tough cases and traditional bumpers – via a leather wallet option.

Prices start at $14.99 (£9.75) for a basic plastic case, rising to $34.99 (£22.76) for more complex, kickstand incorporating options.

Interestingly, the case pre-orders could also offer some insight into when the eagerly awaited Galaxy S6 release date will be held.

With a single case lining up alongside a March 20 shipping date, it has been suggested the HTC One M9 challenger could hit retailers just weeks after its impending unveiling.

The remaining eight cases have all been pegged for shipping on April 1.

Recent leaks have suggested the Galaxy S6 will play host to a market-leading collection of specs.

With a 64-bit, octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and 20-megapixel, OIS-enhanced camera expected to land, the S6 features list has also been tipped to add a 3GB of RAM, Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop OS and a newly refined TouchWiz OS.
