Last year, Samsung introduced two variants for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4: the standard variant, and an experimental Galaxy Note Edge. The latter offered users with a curved display from one side, offering access to shortcuts and apps.
According to a new report from the reputable SamMobile, Samsung is also working on a Galaxy S6 variant which will offer dual-edge display, one on each side.
There’s no word about what the company will call the handset, but we may be looking at the Galaxy S6 Edge. And, this isn’t the first time we’re hearing about it, previous rumors hinted that Galaxy S6 Edge will see the light of the day at the Mobile World Congress in March, alongside a new smartwatch and the Galaxy S6.
The report continues to mention that the alleged Galaxy S6 Edge will rely on the same display panel as the Galaxy Note Edge, so it will offer the same set of shortcuts as the phablet. But, there are still some new features to make the new device stand out, such as the ability to activate either side of the curve depending on your primary hand, Glance Lighting which will light up the display upon a call or a notification, and more.
As far as the specifications are concerned, it shouldn’t be too different from the Galaxy S6, which is rumored to come with a QHD display, Snapdragon 810/Exynos processor, and Android Lollipop as its operating system. And yes, it’s also expected to feature a new metal design, making it look more premium compared to its previous iterations.
Stay tuned, we’ll update you as soon as we hear more about the alleged devices from the Korean company.
