Galaxy S6 Edge detailed with 3-sided screen

This week the folks at Samsung seem to have a leaking problem – and/or the people talking about the Galaxy S6 have read the rumors from last week. Word this week is that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a double-sided or triple-sided display, taking the Galaxy Note 4’s best friend Galaxy Note Edge up a notch. This device would have two curved edges, one on the left, the other on the right of the main screen. There’s also rumors of metal! And a high-powered camera!

Does this all sound familiar? It very well should. One could take the rumors and the official talk from Samsung over the past several years and put together a picture that looks like what you see here:

Samsung Galaxy S6
Display: 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 (QuadHD, aka 2K)
Camera (back): 20.1-megapixel, OIS, 4K recording
Camera (front): 5-megapixel
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 inside USA, Exynos 7420 outside – both 64-bit
OS: Android 5.0 Lollipop
Storage: 32, 64, 128GB internal
Micro-SD: 128GB microSD/SDHC slot

Samsung Galaxy (S6) Edge
Display: 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 (QuadHD, aka 2K) plus additional space on left and/or right of screen, similar to Galaxy Note Edge
Camera (back): 20.1-megapixel, OIS, 4K recording
Camera (front): 5-megapixel
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 inside USA, Exynos 7420 outside – both 64-bit
OS: Android 5.0 Lollipop
Storage: 32, 64, 128GB internal
Micro-SD: 128GB microSD/SDHC slot

On the metal bit, you’ll want to have a peek at the this all-metal frame bit from the 4th of February. This device would have a frame similar to the Galaxy Note 4.

For those of you pumped up about the Galaxy 6S “Edge”, you can turn to today’s Bloomberg tip which suggests a “person familiar with the matter” has said so.

You can also see the Galaxy S6 Edge cases if you like.

Or perhaps you prefer the Galaxy S6 Edge semi-confirmation from Samsung? Or the name leak from Vodafone? Or an older leak – from back in January maybe.

Or the rumor from way back in December?

There’s also word of less TouchWiz apps and/or features. A more “pure” Android, as it were.

No matter what, we’ll be seeing what Samsung has to offer very, very soon. March 1st, to be exact. Stay tuned to our Samsung tag portal for more.
