Galaxy S6 might come in Q2 with aluminum chassis and side-sloping display
The rumored dual-edged display for the Galaxy S6 might be more understated than the Note Edge solution, after all, if "reliable sources" tipping an Italian tech blog are to be believed. The sides will eventually be sloping much less here, in order to avoid the dual-edged panel affecting the grip ergonomics. The folks there have leaked a phone or two before, and have now received confirmation not only that the S6 will indeed have a display slightly curved on both sides, but it will also feature a unibody aluminum chassis.

We'll have to see this to believe it, as Samsung has been pretty plasticky so far with all of its Galaxy flagships, and crafting million of aluminum pieces for the casing will be a tough retooling for it to pull off. Moreover, the publication claims there won't be two versions - S6 and S6 Edge - as speculated so far, but all models will be with the flexible curved display, while the separation will be by the chipset utilized - Snapdragon 810 for the LTE units, and a brand new 64-bit Exynos 7 Octa for the other variation. 

The source is also debunking the rumor that Samsung has pulled the announcement of the S6 forward to CES next month, but rather reiterates that we will see Samsung's next flagship unveiled in the usual Q2 timeframe. Where there is smoke, there is fire, and we can't wait to see that eventual display waterfall on the sides of the S6, as well as the purported metal chassis, provided that all of this holds water in the end.
