With rumors swarming around Samsung’s Project Zero – aka Galaxy S6 – a new report has shed some light on the color options the company’s front runner could be sporting once it’s released. This would be the first time the colors have been reported on, and the first time we get a glimpse of an option which we haven’t seen before.
We’ve heard about the Galaxy S6’s design and specs for some time now, with a recently leaked photo of the device showing flat surfaces on the front and back and as was discussed way before the leak, looks to be dressed in glass panels on both sides with a metal band running around it.
According to SamMobile, an insider report suggests that the device could come dressed in four colors; dark blue, gold, white, and blue-green. We’ve seen Samsung have a go with the dark blue before on the Galaxy A5 which does manage to squeeze some oomph out of the device, striking a rather premium look. If the device is indeed sporting glass panels like the iPhone 4 / 4s, the dark blue and the debuting greenish blue could sell like hot cakes.
Clearly, Samsung is not looking to add some funk to its top of the line phone, and as was suggested earlier how Samsung will be betting on premium construction and design for the S6, these existing color options aren’t that surprising. Now if we do see a splash of these colors from the Korean electronics giant or not, it is something all of us would have to wait for.
In light of these color options, are the recent Samsung event invites that are peculiar in a way, showing a wavy line which I badly wish could be the device itself but, Samsung isn’t exactly known for being that radical when it comes to designing smartphones. However, it has proven us wrong with the addition of a curved edge display for the Galaxy Note Edge, and there are plenty of rumors flying around that the AMOLED creator will be including a similar design in a Galaxy S6 variant. Who knows, maybe the curved edge display will be a standard feature on the S6.
Samsung is all set to unveil the mysterious device on the 1st of March at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, along with possibly newer devices as well.
