Samsung Galaxy S6 curved design revealed

We’ve been granted the best look at the Samsung Galaxy S6‘s curved design yet, courtesy of an American mobile network operator.

Recent weeks have seen teaser after teaser dripped onto the internet by Samsung, but a mobile network in the US has just given us the biggest glimpse of the Galaxy S6 design yet.

T-Mobile US boss John Legere has tweeted confirmation that his network would indeed be offering the Samsung Galaxy S6 when it launches. Not particularly exciting news for the vast majority of us, but it’s the link he provided with the tweet that’s of interest here.

This tweeted link points to a Galaxy S6 sign-up page on the T-Mobile website. There’s no information on the phone, but there is the above picture, which grants a pretty clear look at the Galaxy S6 from a slightly tilted side angle.

As you can see, the Galaxy S6 has a similar curved edge to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, only we know that this will be the case on both edges.

We also get a good look at that distinctive tapered rear, which is set to be formed from metal (as confirmed by Samsung itself) in a break from the company’s plastic past.

Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S6 at a March 1 launch event, just prior to the start of MWC 2015. It will face stiff confirmation from the HTC One M9, which will also be announced on March 1. Basically, if you’re considering buying a new high-end Android phone, you’d best hold off for a week or two.
