We’re still not sure exactly what to expect from the Galaxy S6, but a new report from SamMobile suggests that when it does launch there may be more than one device to choose from. According to the usual anonymous sources, Samsung plans to launch a limited edition Galaxy S6 Edge as well, offering a curved variant of the rumored flagship phone.
Today’s news follows a report from early last month that claims the Galaxy S6 could actually feature two curved edges in an effort to set the device apart from its competition. Now, it looks like the flagship phone could feature a more traditional design. At the same time, the Galaxy S6 Edge could appeal to anyone who considered the Galaxy Note Edge but prefers a slightly smaller handset.
This isn’t the first time SamMobile has claimed to offer details on the Galaxy S6. The Samsung-focused blog previously revealed that the device is being referred to as Project Zero internally, suggesting it could be a big departure from last year’s S5. More recently, we learned that the new phone may sport a Quad HD display, a 16 or 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 32/64/128GB of storage. It’s also expected to pack a 64-bit processor—either the Snapdragon 810 or an in-house Exynos 7420 depending on the region.
We assume the Galaxy S6 Edge will offer similar specs, just like the Note Edge holds the same internal hardware as the Note 4. Of course this is just a rumor for now, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see Samsung make another push with its curved display technology early next year.
