Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be launched by Sprint, too, pre-registrations now open
Shortly after T-Mobile and AT&T put up Galaxy S6 teaser pages on their official websites (see here and here), Sprint also joined the party, allowing customers to pre-register for "the latest Samsung devices."

Sprint is showing the same teaser image that T-Mobile and AT&T are using, revealing the side of a Samsung handset that features a curved display. You can check out all three images in the slideshow below. Mind you, the smartphone that we're seeing in these images is, almost certainly, the Galaxy S6 Edge, not the regular S6 (since it's unlikely that the regular model has a curved display which wraps around its edges).

As you may already know, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge should be officially announced on March 1 at MWC 2015, when Samsung will host one of its most important press events of the year. US carriers are planning to start selling the S6 and S6 Edge "this spring" - which could mean anytime between March and May. We assume the Galaxy S6 Edge will be more expensive than the regular S6 (just like the Galaxy Note Edge costs more than the Note 4). But we'll see about that.

Do you plan to buy a Galaxy S6, or a Galaxy S6 Edge? Let us know in the comments section.

"...has a curved display which wraps around its edges" - not so much. Doesn't look useful enough, since it appears to be a small curving

I have the note edge and the full curve is not used at all, I.e.this will easy cover what I got on the note edge

as far as i know the "colorful edges" in those pictures can be changed. it's related to contact in the phone. when in the middle of meeting we can mute the phone by flip down the phone while we still know who contact us via the color...

Nice but I was expecting for smth realy useful. A led can do it in my phone and I don't even use it. Do I need a curved screen for that? gimmick imo

Trying to be pretty is not a gimmick. One of the biggest criticism laid upon Samsung phones is its allegedly cheap looking, and Samsung is trying to rectify it. It is not up for debate whether one thinks this design is beautiful or not - that is a matter of opinion. Calling it "gimmick" is not justified, however. What would you consider a non-gimmick? Out of curiosity. Galaxy S5 style waterproofing is your thing?

It is going to have one side curved screen like the note 4. Not both sides like some of us are expecting it to be.

It seems like Verizon is behind on this just like every other phone and every update. Probably trying to figure out how to get Samsung to backtrack on its "less bloatware" approach.

Verizon is still trying to figure out how to plaster their ugly logo all over the S6.

Lol on the backside, in gold, and their famous red V by the speaker grill. I think they are more concern, how much bloat they are going to add.

Samsung is doing thire best to keep HTC under a rug. lol. We'll see how good their marketing blanket works on March 1st.

I mean if HTC wanted to, they could hype up their phone as well. But as you can expect Samsung spends much more money on marketing because they can easily afford too.

Given that HTC needs marketing more than pretty much anything else right now... They should be doing everything they can to create awareness of, and interest in; their upcoming products regardless as to what Samsung is or isn't doing.

Did you see the result of HTC's last marketing blitz? How can you take two great actors like Downey, Jr. and Oldman and make them uninteresting?

25. TerryTerius unregistered

Let me rephrase that: HTC needs *good* marketing more than anything else. You're completely right, their last two campaigns were a disaster. They need to bring in some outside expertise to help them sort that out. They can hire as many talented celebrities as they'd like... It won't make a difference if their commercials aren't clear, concise, attention grabbing, explanatory, artful, witty or easily understandable to the average person.

They should remove those pre-installed apps which most of them users won't use and it look so messy

Verizon will launch this along with the Note 5 in the fall.

This phone is going to be a fail. #1. Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you should. #2. What actual advantage is there to having a phone with curved sides? Honestly? #3. Well, so much for putting a case on this phone. #4 Samsung will over charge because its a novelty. No thank you.

back in the nineties when we were in high school you have to take typing class to show we could type and every single one of us said why should I learn to type I'm not going to be a receptionist this could be the same thing you say who needs three sides on a phone well maybe in the future we do people used to say why do I want a phone that can go on the internet in my pocket now you couldn't go a day without it

I would hesitate to say that the S6 Edge will flop. Regardless of the practical use case, which appears to be slim, there's no denying that the Edge makes it a unique device. I, personally, think it will look super sleek, as I loved how the Note Edge looked. Cases shouldn't be too difficult, as the design appears to have enough room on the sides for one. You're right that it will be expensive, but with a (presumably) more expensive screen technology, that's just bound to be the case.

The Note 4 has perfectly fitting cases, no problem. More real estate within the same sized package, less useless bezels can be welcome, even if there are no other applications (the Note 4 has a few, notification bar, clock at night, custom side buttons for many apps, etc). And swiping without hitting the usual edge, basically without actual borders, can be nice too. Look at the first LG round, where you keep hitting those irritating borders, whereas a bubble like glass without borders on top of the phone, or one step further, the display wrapped around the corners, feels like you've just been freed from an unneccessary restriction.

Honestly. What is the disadvantage of curved screen? Can you name one? Assuming it looks pretty and people like it, why shouldn't they do it? Can you provide a reason? I am sure there will be cases for this phone. And sure Samsung may charge more for curved screen. I suppose that is why Samsung is releasing two models at the same time. You know, choices. It is not forced upon your behind.

Not getting tired of looking at the phone in that teaser.
