For a few weeks we’ve been seeing an incredibly high number of leaks and rumors talking about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6. So far it’s pretty likely that we’ll get an S6 Edge version too, and this has been rumored to have a three-sided screen, not two-sided like the Galaxy Note Edge (which is pictured below).
Today a new report comes to confirm this detail, along with other things that have been leaked recently. For example, both the S6 and the S6 Edge are said to sport “all-metal bodies”. So the much rumored glass backs may be out.
The phones will come with 5.1-inch displays, keeping the size of their predecessor. They will be powered by “Samsung’s most advanced processor chips”, or so say “people with direct knowledge of the matter”. This isn’t surprising, given how many times we’ve heard that Samsung won’t use Qualcomm chips for the S6, instead opting for its own Exynos 7 octa solution.
According to some analysts, the Galaxy Note Edge was received by the market better than they’ve anticipated, which means the S6 Edge might be a rather successful endeavor too. And its screen, which covers the front but also the left and right sides of the device, will surely make it stand out in public. Samsung plans to eventually produce a fully foldable smartphone, but until that’s possible these curved displays will have to do.
Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge will be unveiled by Samsung on March 1 at a special event in Barcelona.
