The Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the most beautiful smartphones we’ve ever seen, and it looks like that same design could carry over to Samsung’s next big device. The Galaxy Note 5 is still many months away from an official launch, but a new report from The Korea Herald reveals the company’s plans for the upcoming phablet.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Samsung’s product strategy chief Roh Tae Moon told reporters the company may carry over the Galaxy S6 Edge design to its next device. “There is a possibility that Samsung will introduce the curved display for the Galaxy Note lineup,” he said, adding that the new technology continue to be a key part of the firm’s mobile strategy moving forward.
It’s not a huge surprise to hear that the Galaxy Note 5—or a variant of the flagship phablet—could come with a curved edge design. Samsung introduced the new style last year, announcing the Note Edge alongside its flagship Note 4. We expect the Note 5 to take things a step further, refining the flexible display technology even more.
The Galaxy Note 5 probably won’t arrive until late 2015, giving Samsung plenty of time to change its plans. But if the Galaxy S6 Edge is a success we won’t be surprised to see a Note 5 Edge arrive later this year.
