We’re a mere couple of days away from Samsung’s Galaxy S6 launch event, but it seems that Android fans aren’t the only ones that can’t stand the anticipation. Sprint is getting on board with the teasers and has launched a “Six Appeal” landing page utilizing a familiar side profile image of what we assume to be the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Here interested Sprint users (are there any Sprint users left?) can register for updates about Samsung’s highly anticipated smartphone.
But lest you think that’s all we will get before the official launch of Samsung Galaxy S6, a second image has surfaced giving us a near full-frontal view of both the standard and Edge versions of the device. The Edge is shown with a display that curves at both sides — a feature that has been rumored but not quite confirmed in recent leaks.
Interesting to note is that in all of Samsung’s early advertising, the Edge variant of the device seems to be the one getting top billing, a different strategy than what we saw with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and and Note Edge. If the S6 Edge is the true flagship, we might wonder why Samsung didn’t simply go all-in on that model while foregoing a version with a standard display.
The image also seems to confirm the notion floating around that the Galaxy S6 Edge will not use its curved display in quite the same way as the Note Edge the preceded it. While the Note Edge had a more dramatic curve that served as a secondary display, the S6 appears to utilize a more subtle taper. There are no indications of the so-called Edge display, leaving us to believe the choice is all about design and ergonomics.
