The Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a curved display, based on a new promotional image posted by T-Mobile on Monday.
A sign-up page for T-Mobile now flashes an image of a Samsung phone with a tag line: “Six Appeal.” This is almost certainly teasing the Galaxy S6, which is expected to be revealed at the Mobile World Congress on March 1, according to TIME.
The image shows just one side of the smartphone, although it clearly shows a curved edge, borrowing a popular feature from the Galaxy Note Edge. The curved edge displays notifications and other content.
Seho Park, Samsung’s chief engineer, has said that the S6 may have multiple wireless charging standards so users can charge their devices nearly anywhere. Park said this year will be a game-changer for wireless smartphone charging.

Samsung will accelerate to democratize this wireless charging technology with compelling smartphones. With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before.
The Galaxy S5, Samsung’s flagship smartphone, was hit for being too similar to its predecessor. Samsung sales and market share have fallen against stiff competition from Apple and low-end Chinese vendors like Xiaomi. Samsung is desperately hoping for a hit with the Galaxy S6, CNET reported.
Samsung has been teasing the Galaxy S6 for some time, with a video posted on Youtube called “Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 — The Next Galaxy” that plays up the metal aspect by saying that “borders will disappear.” While Samsung has defended the plastic body of the Galaxy S line of phones, it arguably makes the phones seem cheaper than rivals like the iPhone 6. The new teaser practically confirms reports that the Galaxy S6 will have a metal back, ABC News reported.
