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.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the newest in a line of extremely popular smartphones sold by Samsung with Android onboard. They represent the best of Samsung in the smartphone business, trumped only (every year) by the Galaxy Note line. As such, last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was launched alongside a Galaxy Note Edge.

This device had a curved display, with an extra bit of space on its right side made for a bonus bit of digital interaction. What you’re seeing here is a conceptual video contructed by a couple of artists making way for the real release in just under a week.

The next video shows the abilities of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The abilities you see here will be reflected – more than likely – by the Galaxy S Edge, however that happens to come to fruition. The big question will be how two edges will be utilized instead of just one.

Below you’ll find some specifications for both Galaxy devices. These specifications are based on rumors and leaks.
