The long-rumoured Samsung Galaxy S6 will finally see the light of the day in March first week, says a new report.

South Korea based Chosun Media, citing an employee of Samsung's supply partner, has claimed that the company will unveil the eagerly awaited Galaxy S6 at the upcoming international electronics trade fair MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2015, Barcelona (2 -5 March).

Though the report is in line with speculations on the web, Samsung is still silent about the rumours. If history is taken as any indication, we believe that Samsung is most likely to showcase the Galaxy S6 at MWC 2015, but will host a parallel event of its own like Samsung Unpacked 2015 Episode 1.

In 2014, Samsung had held Samsung Unpacked 2014 Episode event in Barcelona to pull the wraps off Galaxy S5 and later demoed the flagship phone at MWC 2014.

For the uninitiated, the upcoming Samsung 2015 marquee phone is said to come in two variants- one normal model and another with dual-edge display.

It is learnt that the limited edition Galaxy S6 Edge will boast of dual-edge display, where-in phone's screen will be curved on both right and left side. Other internal hardware is said to remain same as the flagship phone.
