Placeholder on Vodafone site confirms Samsung Galaxy S Edge
A placeholder on Vodafone's website confirms that the curved glass version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be called the Samsung Galaxy S Edge. That would seem to make sense considering that the curved glass version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is called the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The source code of Vodafone's page shows that a pre-order form for the Samsung Galaxy S Edge will be added.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S Edge are expected to be unveiled on March 2nd, during MWC in Barcelona. It was at the same event last year when Samsung introduced its current flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5

Supposedly, neither device is going to have an IP certification for dust and water protection, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S5. In a bid to pump up margins this year, only the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is expected to feature an IP certification.


Thanks for the tip!

It's easy to file patents on things others have developed but you never have. It's kind of Apple's modus operandi.

this is probably one reason I dislike Apple as a company, they hold all these patents that they will never use I know its business but it just sucks that companies do this then try to suit

Not the same thing. What Apple patented was an idea to wrap the screen around the device. not just stop at the sides. It is not the same thing. This screen on the Samsung device stops at the Edge. It is a totally different application and idea. Also, drawing crap on paper is one thing, actually making it is something different. Samsung actually made the flexible display they are using on their devices. Apple doesn't make crap. The likely would pay someone else to make said tech once flexible displays were available. You need to understand that when you file a patent, words need to be more specific and not broad. However, "wrap around" and "edge" descriptively mean 2 unique things. Being similar in concept, doesn't make them equal in reality.

i would call it a "bezeless" phone... isn't that what everyone wants? who cares if it has function or not. the purpose has already been served

Ps. Would be nice to see a mini S Pen for the S range. I would drop screen sizes coming from a note 3, but I would miss the S Pen as I use it alot

The Note is basically the S, with a pen and better specs too.

Should be interesting to see the Galaxy S Edge. I think the Note Edge is an awesome concept, but being a pretty beefy phablet, I would not personally carry one around. A smaller version could possibly pull me to buy another Samsung phone.
