The Samsung Galaxy S6, the South Korean technology giant’s upcoming flagship smartphone, is likely to be available in four colors, including dark blue, blue-green, golden and white, according to a new report by SamMobile.
The report follows press invites sent out by the company for its “Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event” on March 1 in Barcelona, Spain, when it is expected to unveil the new Galaxy S6 as well as a curved-screen version of the device. The invite, which reportedly mentions the event timing as 6:30 p.m. CET (12:30 p.m. EST), includes an image suggesting that Samsung might present the curved-screen technology -- found on the Galaxy Note Edge -- on its Galaxy S series smartphones.

According to the SamMobile report, the dark blue color could be similar to the one on the Galaxy A5, while the golden and white color options are common among existing Galaxy handsets. But, the blue-green option, if turns out to be true, will be a new addition to Samsung handsets.
While Samsung has confirmed that it will hold the Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on March 1, the company is not likely to hold a separate event in the U.S., like it did before.
“Samsung has no plans to host an Unpacked event in the U.S. If you’re not traveling to Mobile World Congress, you can watch Unpacked via livestream at youtube.com/SamsungMobile,” SamMobile quoted a company spokesperson as saying.
According to previous reports, Samsung is planning a major overhaul of the Galaxy S6, which is being developed under the codename, “Project Zero.” The company is also rumored to have made significant changes to the device, including a fingerprint sensor and a new version with a curved display.
Rumors also suggest that the Galaxy S6 could sport a larger, 5.5-inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and could be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor. Some reports also claimed that the device could feature a 20-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization technology.
