Samsung is prepping up for an Unpacked reveal in Barcelona in the early evening of Sunday but had been beaten in schedule by a user in Reddit after the latter posted some images online. The Reddit user, who was confirmed to be a Sprint employee, posted images of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices with some details of the promo.
While there are still no confirmed specifications available or newer details about Samsung's upcoming flagship device, the leak had somehow confirmed that the company is indeed coming up with two handsets to be launched at MWC. The leaked image had also somehow revealed the design features of the newest addition to Samsung's Galaxy lineup.
"Pre-register for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge that are coming soon and you'll be entered for a chance to win one of six GS6 devices that are being given away each week for a limited time," says the words in the ad. The lower right corner of the ad says that users don't have to make a purchase and that the offer will end on March 26, 2015.
The same thread in Reddit has also led users to the Sprint site where an ad called "Six Appeal" can be seen. In the ad, users are invited to pre-register in order to be one of the first who would get the details on the latest Samsung handsets.
"If you unsubscribed from Sprint marketing emails, submitting your email address will not change your status," says one part of the ad.
If the leaked image is true, it will confirm that the S6 Edge will indeed have a wrap-around screen on both sides as opposed to the single side wrap-around design found on the Note Edge. It also shows that the device will be covered with a shiny metal frame. However, the ad also stated at the bottom in a smaller sized font that the screen images are simulated and that the appearances of devices may vary.
There is also a speculation that the email registration part could be fake although such request is usually a standard move by companies when they think about a gimmick in launching their devices.
The Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled on Sunday, March 1, at 5:30 p.m. That means there are only a few hours left to finally know for sure the authenticity of the leak.
