Does Samsung's invitation show the silhouette of the Samsung Galaxy S Edge?

Does Samsung's invitation show the silhouette of the Samsung Galaxy S Edge?
Earlier this morning, we showed you the invitation being sent out by Samsung for the March 1st unveiling of its next flagship model. The invitation featured a curved design that we felt represented a silhouette of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Based on an image put together by a Korean website, the curved design either shows the Samsung Galaxy S Edge, or else the Samsung Galaxy S6 itself will feature curved glass.

Regardless of whether the phone symbolized by the curved design on the invitation is the Samsung Galaxy S Edge or the Samsung Galaxy S6, it seems clear that Samsung will continue to offer a smartphone with that extra display space on the side of the phone. Virtual controls, notifications, stock quotes, sports scores and other content can be found on the extra real estate, leaving the main display space less cluttered.

We have both the original invitation from Samsung, and the one that was created by the Korean site. Check out both by clicking on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip!

14nm with 3GB of ddr4 vs 20/28nm with 3GB of ddr3. Yeah, nothing new here.

I thought specs bump mean s**t, pretty sure that was the complaint from sheeps of the android army when apple updates the internals but not much new on the outside

Apple updates the internals, but safari still crashes on its own. Just because s6 might have a curved screen, it doesn't mean it'll look the same as n4 edge.

Seriously? Specs don't matter has always been the mantra of the Apple faithful. Specs only started mattering when Apple went 64bit, because 64 may be twice as good as 32.

@tedkord 64bit basicly doesnt change to much on android (not 2x faster like you stated ... but indeed faster) whats important is, that it uses armv8 which is great for power savin + performance and also lpddr4 instead of lpddr3 (by far faster and also less voltage (0,9 vs 1,35))

I didn't state that 64bit was twice as fast 32 bit. That was sarcasm. EDIT: I see now, autocorrect bit me. It was supposed to say 64 MUST be twice as fast as 32.

Exactly what was on my mind for nctx77. also Samsung makes more revolutionary products than Apple. Just wanted to throw that in there. Lol

Specs don't matter. If Samsung seriously improves the looks and cleans up touchwiz so it doesn't lag they will have a great year.

Lol! Revolutionary? Give me a break!!

Putting prototypes on the market and hoping an idea sticks is not revolutionary! There is a reason they released a Note and Note edge. They are scared to release the edge as their main unit because they know it's hard to hold and really serve no purpose. It just seems revolutionary to people like you. You know,, rallying the base.

They released both because they're not arrogant enough to think that they can decide for each user what is best. And the prototype was shown years ago, this is the actual product, and it is innovative.

Lolz hoping it'll stick huh. You mean like how samsung made the whole phablet thing stick? Or maybe how they managed to make the s pen stick also? How about not using a traditional ips lcd display like everyone else in the industry and make thier amoled screens one of the best most loved screen technology in the industry.! Yeah your right samsung don't know s**t about being revolutionary like Apple. Because apple was the first in the industry to do umm.... Wait.... Ummm.... I'll get back to you on that..?

Really? How about the following new things to the S model: 1 - 2K display 2 - No removable back 3 - Dual Edged display 4 - Exynos (No SnapDragon) 5 - First 64Bit phone from Samsung 6 - First time the S available with 2 selling models 7 - Fast Charging 8 - No 3.0 port 9 - 20MP Camera 10 - 5MP front camera List goes on as to what is new 11 - TouchWiz Lite 12 - TouchWiz Themes Need I go on? First phone to have sensor mounted cases vs putting them inside the phone. Open your mind, or just stick with iPhone articles where there is never anything truly new to talk about.

Look at your list mr. android follower. Everything at that list is COPIED feature. Thats what shamesung does. It copycats and steals everything. Curved edge is shamesungs only "original" idea in that scale. Although curved screen is not. Shameshung = copycat, the one that is falling already. The worlds biggest copycat horde from china, is alrady biting shamesung. Going to smile, when shamesung uses "our innovative product".

Don't forget the LoopPay integration they're adding to provide a literally 10x better payment option than Apple Pay. It will literally be accepted at 10x more places because it's backward compatible with magnetic swipe card terminals and not just NFC. Also the metal chassis and potential option to add interchangeable lenses and e-Ink screens and other stuff to the back side. If even half these rumours are true this phone is going to kick some serious @$$!

It likely is curved on both sides of the screen for the S6.

You can still hold it... welll.. I can't say that... But when I grab my phone, I dont really touch the sides... I just touch where the side meets the back. It's kinda like ∀ where the horizontal line is thep hone and the V shape is my hand holding it.

Apparently the palm rejection tech they use on the Note Edge works really well, so if the S6 does end up having two curved edges I don't think accidental presses would be an issue.
