Samsung Galaxy S6: company mocks rumours with ‘Is This The Next?’ page

Samsung has set up a page on its website mocking and apparently encouraging rumours about its new Galaxy S6 flagship phone.

While the page does not comment on any of the rumours, they have all either been mentioned heavily before or are in line with those found on competitors’ phones. The rumours are likely to at least indicate what will be contained in Monday’s launch event.

Alongside the images, Samsung features pictures of mocked-up versions of what the rumours could mean, such as a phone sat on a pillow to illustrate a rumour about it being durable.

The page details four rumours: that the phone will have forward facing stereo speakers, that it will be “durable”, that the screen will reach onto three sides and that it will have a bigger display. All the rumours are believable, and chime with those heard from credible sourced in the run-up to the announcement of the phone.

Most of those rumours have been started or encouraged by Samsung and companies that it works with. The three-sided screen and metal body, for instance, were both all but confirmed when the CEO of T-Mobile tweeted a link to the network’s page for the phone yesterday.

At the end of the list of rumours, the company gives a countdown to the announcement of the handset. It will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress on Monday evening.

Samsung’s “Unpacked” event is set to begin at 5.30GMT. The company will live stream the presentation.
