US carrier AT&T has gotten in on the “Six Appeal” teasing campaign initiated yesterday by T-Mobile’s John Legere, with their own blue-hued image appearing on a “six” page that’s less of a preorder and more of a “send me information” signup page on their mobile site.
The image doesn’t reveal anything new about the phone, basically showing the same thing as yesterday but in AT&T’s colours. It is taller than T-Mo’s image, though – it looks like it’s been modified by AT&T to add the “Spring 2015” line below, as there’s a visible line in the image (well done, guys). “Spring 2015” in US terms covers our Autumn, so that’s March to May.
Given T-Mo’s pink and AT&T’s blue, we’re waiting for Verizon to drop a red-hued Six Appeal image of their own now. We’ve no idea if there’s any Australian teasing coming up, but red might also suit Vodafone, with aqua or yellow for Optus. Given Telstra’s recent colour-rich branding, theirs would probably just be a rainbow.
Notably, the filename (the stunningly detailed “224828-m-mrq-samsung-zero-flat-teaser-640×380-p.jpg”) contains reference to Samsung’s rumoured “Project Zero” initiative last year that’s supposed to see a completely redesigned and reimagined Galaxy S device delivered to us next month. The “flat” part probably refers more to the graphic’s production process than it does any “flat” elements of the phone or its operating system.
We’ll find out for ourselves when the Galaxy S6 launches next week at Mobile World Congress 2015, and we’ll be there on the ground to report it for you.
