Highlights of the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 Event:
This Sunday, we will witness the launch of the sixth generation Galaxy S series smartphone, but besides the flagship smartphone, the company is also slated to unveil a limited edition Edge model with curved dual-edge display.
Going by the series of teaser videos, Samsung is very gung-ho about the new Galaxy S6, which is expected to have undergone a major upgrade over its predecessor.
Here is one Samsung video teaser which hints of metal in Galaxy S6:
A lot is at stake on Galaxy S6; if it fails to impress critics and fans, Samsung risks the danger of losing more market share to its arch rival Apple and Chinese firm Xiaomi. Unpacked 2015 Episode 2 will be a one glitzy event, just like when the company pulled off some glamorous theatrics (some called it a bit sexist though), at Galaxy S4 unveiling event last year.
