Samsung Galaxy S6 hits testing facilities ahead of upcoming launch

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has made yet another pre-release appearance, popping up at an R&D facility in India.

Leaked via a Zauba import document, the Galaxy S6 has been spotted doing the rounds under what is believed to be its official development model number – the Samsung SM-G920F.

Although the handset in question is not intended for consumer release, the movement of test units suggests that Samsung is nearing completion on its eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S5 follow-on.

The S6 unit, which was sent direct from the company’s South Korean HQ – was accompanied by the description: “Sample Samsung smartphone SM-G920F (For R&D purposes and evaluation, not for retail sale).”

While Samsung has yet to officially acknowledge the existence of such a device, it is believed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be official unveiled during MWC 2015 in early March.

It is expected the device’s Barcelona-based unveil will be followed by a consumer release in Q2.

Although the latest S6 leaks have failed to offer any further insight into the phone’s feature list, past leaks have painted a strong picture of what we can expect from the device.

According to reports, the S6 specs sheet will see an LG G3 echoing 2560 x 1440 pixel, QHD display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and improved camera optics.
