We’ve seen a lot of the Samsung Galaxy S6 as of late, but through all the leaks and rumors we haven’t really gotten a good look at the supposed “Edge” variant said to be on the way. That changes today, though, thanks to the gift that keeps on giving — Verus and their careless render leaks.
The case manufacturer let slip another one of their promo images for Samsung’s latest phones, and on the far right side you’ll notice the curved display of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. It should serve a purpose identical to which a similar feature served on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. That is, you’ll be able to get notifications, information about weather, appointments and time, and mini apps that you can use if you’d rather free up the main display for more complicated tasks.
Like the Galaxy Note 4, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge won’t be produced at nearly the same scale as Samsung’s tried and true straight-edged model. There should be enough supply for everyone who wants one to get one, though, and we imagine most carriers will look to offer both options once they’re available.
CNet Korea also mentions that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be “dual-edged” and symmetrical on both sides, though from what we can tell the leaked render doesn’t seem to depict such a design. Perhaps it’s just a bad angle, but either way we will know for sure on March 1st.
