Reportedly confirmed: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925) will have a curved display on both sides
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is expected to be a more pretentious version of the upcoming Galaxy S6 - one that, like the Galaxy Note Edge from last year, should offer a curved display. Today, SamMobile can reportedly confirm that Samsung is working on “a Galaxy S6 with two-edge displays, on each side.” The handset has the model number SM-G925, but it’s not yet clear if it’s going to be called Galaxy S6 Edge. For now, however, we’re going to use this name anyway.

According to SamMobile and its sources, the Galaxy S6 Edge will allow users to activate any of its two edge displays - thus being easy to use with both left, and right hands. Another new feature is Glance Lighting - this can light up one of the edge screens (or maybe both at the same time?) when incoming calls or notifications are received. Furthermore, there’ll be a option to assign specific Glance Lighting colors to each of your favorite contacts - so you’ll know who’s calling just by noticing the color of the edge screen(s).

It’s said that the S6 Edge will use the same panel-based system that we’re seeing on the Galaxy Note Edge, thus coming with edge panels like news and sports, contacts panel, Yahoo! Finance, briefing panel, and others that are going to be available via Samsung’s app store.

We don’t know if Samsung intends to announce the Galaxy S6 Edge at the same time with the regular Galaxy S6, though that’s highly possible. In any case, at least one Galaxy S6 will almost certainly be unveiled in the coming months. We’ll be here to let you know all about it!

This useless and ridiculous feature only serves specs hungry bums beside making the device more fragile. What about voice and gesture control? We've had these two useful features for years but phone makers have never tried to improve them. All they do is keep adding new stupid craps for marketing purposes. *sigh*

Are you high? Google Voice is vastly superior to SIRI and Cortana, and Motorola has done great things implementing it and gestures. I can literally operate my Moto X's without even touching them or having to repeat myself.

That's innovation from Samsung. Did you find it in iPhone or Xiaomi?

I beg to differ Tracy1988... I feel like this could become incredibly useful. Virtual buttons for volume? Or just have the whole side act as a slidebar for scrolling? It's opening the doors for innovation. Touchscreen was a useless and ridiculous feature at one point and look at it now... it drives the whole mobile world. I'm jsut curious is this time around it will be seen as a positive or negative.

The best Superamoled display + monster spec + innovative features + top quality brand = the king of smartphone in 2015. Long live Samsung, I trust you!

just where is the metal frame supposed to be if the thing has glass on the front back AND sides? ouch!

I'm thinking the Edge will be less pronounced than on the Note Edge, and it will just have a thin metal frame around the "Edged" sides.

I figure the metal frame is under the glass on both sides. (I can't stop laughing)

Double edge phone, made of aluminum and metal, SD810, 20mp OIS rear camera 1080 screen (no need for quad) 3300 MAH battery and the biggest change remove TW and create better looking icons and widgets. I would definetly give this a chance.

This will come as a shock to you... Aluminium IS metal.

It's also a very Cheap metal.. and if you ask me i'd just have the frame being any kind of durable metal and plastic back..

You are up on Samsung using metal in there phones like the gs5 but they always used in inside of the phone

Base stock sure, once treated, its a different ball of wax. Good T4 or T6 is not cheap, nor is it low quality. Want to read some good stuff on it, look up transparent Al, hit with big enough doses of soft xray an she goes near transparent just like Scotty said. I love Benchmade knives! D2 or VG10 ,G10 scaled T6 handle with a William & Mchenery axial lock ftw!

Samsung have always used metal in their Galaxy phones. The frames are magnesium alloy. Apple, no. And unlike the iPhone's supposed "aircraft grade" aluminium, which has been shown to be inferior..Samsung use an aluminium ALLOY on the Note 4 and Alpha, etc.

I don't care what anybody says - I think this sounds so cool. The "Glance Lighting" idea sounds kind of like what LG did with the home button of the Optimus G pro, (how it lit up when a notification was pending) which I always thought was a neat idea. Maybe it's not a groundbreaking innovation, but those little touches give a device character where others are found to be lacking. The Galaxy Note Edge struck me as an awesome idea, and I hope Samsung improves on the concept and knocks everybody's socks off with this thing.

Four sided curves or bust. I wanna have my headphone jack and charging port on the back of the phone so it looks like Julius Caesar every time I need to charge it while listening to music.

If it (or the Note Edge 2 since I won't go down in screen size) has that very big top bezel like the Note Edge I'm not interested.

I didn't like the first edge, I thought it was gimmicky...,

Of course you did. This comes as a surprise to exactly zero people.

We should go out and you can buy me a drink, I can also show you my iPhone 6 plus.

Making a crude sexually suggestive comment to a woman is funny? Can you hear me all the way back there in the 70's?

You sir, are a gentleman. Not to worry though, I'm here with the boys and I can take it. I actually thought he was talking about his phone until you posted :) In fact he probably DID mean his iPhone 6+ ..overcompensating, if you take my meaning.

Hilarious TM, that's probably not an actual woman though ;). Women don't generally frequent tech sites.

Not after getting treated like that much. Without class, low brow.

Seriously? Says the person with 13k posts. Women may not like tech sites as much as men but we do go to them, and yes I am a woman. Not that it matters. But I would think you of all people would not be so quick to judge. If you get my meaning.
