Samsung is expected to launch its next Galaxy flagship smartphone alongside a curved-display variant at the company’s Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event during MWC scheduled for March 1, which is just a couple of days away from now. But the leaks related to the device just don’t stop coming in.The latest in the series of leaks is from mobile carrier Sprint. The US carrier along with T-Mobile, and AT&T earlier this week unveiled pre-registration pages that featured a side view of the Galaxy S6 Edge along with the words ‘Six Appeal’. Soon after, AT&T’s site code confirmed the names – Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

More recently though, Sprint briefly put up a contest page (now pulled down) which showed the top-halves of both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. In the meanwhile, more live images of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have surfaced on the Internet, matching the phones seen on the Sprint contest page, alongside new details about UI on the handset.

First spotted by Android Police, Sprint’s promotional teaser pages are for interested consumers to sign up for alerts on the handsets. Another promotional contest page shows the front panels of both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

The image only shows the upper half body of both the Samsung handsets that house the company logo just above the display while the screen has March 1 date potentially tipping the launch day. Sprint’s contest page seemingly also spills the names of the two handsets, in-line with previous reports, and says, “Pre-register for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge that are coming soon and you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of six GS6 (Galaxy S6) devices that are given away each week for a limited time.”

In another leak, Sammobile reports that the Galaxy S6 will come preloaded with just two in-house apps while it will also include the themes feature that debuted on the Samsung Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5. The report claims that Galaxy S6 users will be able to change “icons, colour bar, voice tones, background image and background colour in menus.”

Lastly, more live images of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have emergedon XDA forum (via GSM Arena). On Thursday, some images of the Galaxy S6 were leaked via XDA forum showing the brushed metal frames alongside front and rear panels, as well as the lack of a microSD card slot and removable battery.

The latest images show the front and rear panels of both the yet-to-be-announced handsets. In one of the images the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are seen with switched-on screens. The curved-display edge of the Galaxy S6 Edge on one side is also visible in the image. The rear images of both the Galaxy S6 and the curved-display variant look identical with a protruding camera, a notable feature that’s visible. As mentioned before, the images match that of the Sprint contest page, and we can now be reasonably sure the two phones will arrive in the form leaked by the carrier.

samsung_galaxy_s6_s6_edge_front_leak_xda1.jpgBased on previous reports, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is likely to feature a 5 or 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED display; run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop; octa-core Exynos 7420 processor; 3GB of RAM; a 20-megapixel camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation); 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2600mAh battery with fast charging features.

Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event on March 1 will kick off at 11:00pm IST and you can tune into NDTV Gadgets for live updates from the event.
