Galaxy S6 Edge vs. Note Edge; Samsung gets edgy

Now that we can call Samsung the edgiest smartphone maker on the planet, with their two curved-screen devices that tumble off the side of the device, it’s time to compare the two. Should you opt for the larger Note Edge, or is the Galaxy S6 Edge right for you? Two sloped sides, or one? It’s a tough question to answer, but if you’re slipping your credit card out to buy a Note Edge, you might want to wait. Then again, it might be your best bet.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hands-on: 2015’s hard-hitters

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hands-on: 2015’s hard-hitters

You might want to sit down for this one: Samsung has, with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, finally built the Android smartphones we’ve been asking it for. Freshly announced at Mobile World Congress 2015 today, the new flagship pair also debut a new design language for the South Korean company, taking what was hinted at with the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4, and finally doing away with Samsung’s old plastic fetish in favor of metal, glass, and - in the case of the Galaxy S6 edge - double-curved AMOLED. Read on past the cut for my first-impressions.

Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge promo image leaked

Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge promo image leaked

It's just a few days before Samsung finally reveals what it really has in mind for the sixth generation of its Galaxy S flagship. And while we've had up to here with leaks, rumors, and official teasers, it wouldn't hurt to have one more right? This new image of the two smartphones, or at least half of them, are supposedly the real deal because they come from a "verified employee" of a mobile carrier. Of course, these days, almost anyone can claim that.

Yesterday, the Galaxy S6 was leaked in all its prototype glory. Still cased in bubble wrap, we got our first look at what might be the next flagship from Samsung. Now, we’re getting a better look at the device, and a comparison to the Galaxy S6 Edge. Side by side (edge to edge?), the two phones give us our first look at Samsung’s new two-phone flagship scheme. Oddly enough, while the thought of a curved screen might not appeal to you, these pics might change your mind.

Samsung Galaxy S6: every detail we know

In just a few days, Samsung will reveal their next smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S6. We know that. We can also readily guess at the idea that there'll be two models - the other model will have a curved display, not unlike the Galaxy Note Edge. The rest of the details we're able to gather come from images of the device(s) and clues left by Samsung. The rumors we'll be leaving to the rumor posts today. Or back last week, that is to say.

T-Mobile teaser confirms “edgy”, “Six Appeal” of Galaxy S6

T-Mobile teaser confirms “edgy”, “Six Appeal” of Galaxy S6

We've seen quite a few leaks and teasers about the Galaxy S6, some coming from Samsung itself. With MWC 2015 so close, however, even mobile carriers are jumping on the train. T-Mobile has just put up its pre-release email registration page and, while that act itself is nothing newsworthy, the carrier is throwing in a teaser our way as well. It is probably the clearest preview of the Galaxy S6 we've ever had, but, like any good teaser, it still leaves some questions open for us to think about.

Galaxy S6 and Edge: here’s what they look like

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are likely on their way to the United States soon. But before we get there, we've got some conceptualized visions to look at. The following bit is a rendered piece of work by artists Ivo Maric and Jermaine Smit, and it'll give you an approximation of what the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy Edge (or S6 Edge, whatever you prefer) might very well look like. Remember - this isn't from Samsung, it's a concept based on rumors.

Galaxy S6 details teased in Samsung video

Galaxy S6 details teased in Samsung video

This week the folks at Samsung are preparing for release of the Galaxy S6 with a new teaser video. This is "The Next Galaxy", as they've said the past several years, the next big thing to come from Samsung in smartphone form. This device appears to be very flat and without edge-faring displays. There's a second phone, more than likely, making this a double-release, but for now we're limited to this video bit. It's very short, and really doesn't say one whole heck of a lot.

Samsung Gear VR Teardown (mini)

Samsung Gear VR Teardown (mini)

What follows is not a full teardown of the Samsung Gear VR. We're not going to go through all the steps involved in finding the right screwdrivers, spudgers, pins and all that. Instead we're going to go through the basics for two groups of people. First, the people that own Gear VR units that want to get inside without destroying their device. Second, for people who want to see what this device is made of. To the untrained eye, it's certainly not made of a lot, that's for certain.
