Although we’ve seen plethora of rumors hinting that Samsung is working on a dual-edge screen variant for its upcoming Galaxy S6 flagship.
Previous rumors suggest it may be a limited edition device, and may come with a Galaxy S6 Edge moniker, but it seems it could launch with a different name. Recently spotted at Vodafone website, the dual-edge variant may just launch as the Samsung Galaxy S Edge.
Although it may not make sense for some, but actually it does. If you recall, Samsung launched the curved screen version of their flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 4, last September but it didn’t have “4” in its name and was just called the Galaxy Note Edge.
Since it’s a limited edition device, which may launch in Korea in start, it makes sense for Samsung to choose a simple name. As far as the specifications are concerned, it shouldn’t be too different from the Galaxy S6, which is expected to come with an metal and glass design, QHD display sporting a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels, and an in-house Exynos processor.
Reports suggest the Korean OEM dropped Snapdragon 810 due to overheating issues. Although reports do suggest that Qualcomm is redesigning the processor to control the heat emissions for Samsung, it remains to be seen if we’ll see a Snapdragon variant for the handset.
Samsung has scheduled an event in March at the Mobile World Congress, we’ll update you as soon as the handset is officially announced.
