Samsung executive: Galaxy S6 to be unveiled on March 2 at MWC 2015

Samsung Galaxy S6 to be unveiled on March 2nd
A top Samsung executive has been quoted today by the South Korean media claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be unveiled on March 2 in Barcelona at the 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress.

As previously reported, a lot of flagship smartphones are expected to be unveiled at MWC 2015 in Barcelona. HTC has already started sending invites for an event scheduled March 1st, an event where the upcoming HTC Hima is said to share the stage with the first smartwatch manufactured by the Taiwanese company.

In an interview with South Korean online publication Chosun, a top Samsung manager confirmed that the Galaxy S6 will be unveiled at MWC 2015 on March 2nd. Two previous members of the Samsung Galaxy S family have been announced at the Mobile World Congress: the Galaxy S5 last year, and the Galaxy S2 back in 2011.

Previous rumors indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S6 could be launched with specifications such as a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, 4GB of RAM, and an improved processor. One previous rumor claimed that the 90% out of the Galaxy S6 units produced by the South Korean manufacturer at launch will use an Exynos chip, this apparently due to the fact that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is allegedly facing overheating issues at the moment. Other rumors say that Samsung will launch a special "Edge" version of the Galaxy S6 that features a display that curves on both sides.

The same publication also quotes an LG official claiming that the LG G4 won't be announced until later in the year (perhaps at some point around May). Apparently, LG will be focusing solely on wearables at the 2015 edition of Barcelona's Mobile World Congress.
