T-Mobile shows off the Samsung Galaxy S6 design, curved screen and all

Samsung logoMobile World Congress is almost here, and the show is expected to have reveals of the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. No one really knew what the S6 would look like, but thankfully T-Mobile's Galaxy S6 teaser page just went live, and it shows enough of the Galaxy S6 to remove any surprises about the phone's design.

It's still designed like a Samsung phone—it looks like every other phone the company has made in the last few years. The new addition is the curved screen, which surprisingly doesn't look as pronounced as the curve on the Galaxy Note Edge. The Edge met the back in a sharp, uncomfortable edge, which made it difficult to hold and left no room for side buttons. The S6 curve looks a lot shallower, allowing for a flat side and room for a power button (the Edge's was top-mounted). The curved version of the Galaxy S6 is expected to be curved on both sides, so both sides of the device should look about the same. There is also expected to be a flat version.

Other than the curve, the picture shows Samsung's trademark hardware home button, and a wraparound gray back, which could possibly be metal. There's also the slogan: "Six Appeal"—we're sure some marketer is very proud of that one.

Samsung is set to fully unveil the Galaxy S6 during its MWC press conference on March 1.
