Earlier today we reported that according to a rumor, the Samsung Galaxy S6 could feature a glass and metal design. Now there have also been rumors that Samsung is planning on launching two phones. One would be the Galaxy S6, and the other would be a variant of the Galaxy S6 where both edges of the phone would feature a curved display.
This is basically like the Galaxy Note Edge, except that instead of one side, both sides will be curved. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of this rumor, but thanks to the folks at SamMobile, they have more or less “confirmed” that this will indeed be the case. The upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge (or whatever it will be called) will feature the same display technology found on the Galaxy Note Edge.
This also means that it will come with the same features as the Galaxy Note Edge, such as the ability to display panels from Yahoo! Finance, news, sports, a briefing panel, and even a pedometer panel. It will also display favorite apps, contacts, and more specially designed apps will be created and available for download via Samsung’s app store.
The edges can also be customized and users can choose which panel they would prefer as their main, depending on which hand they tend to hold their phone in. The edge can also light up when a call or notification is received, and users will also be able to customize their contacts and assign to them individual colors. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us later for the details.
