Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge names seemingly confirmed by AT&T

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge names seemingly confirmed by AT&T
Samsung isn't ready to officially confirm the names of its two upcoming flagship smartphones (which will be announced this Sunday at MWC 2015), but we're all expecting them to be called Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

Until now, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have all revealed that they'd release Samsung's Next Big Things, and it appears that AT&T is indirectly confirming their names. The "Galaxy S6" and "Galaxy S6 Edge" are both mentioned on AT&T's webpage that lets customers pre-register for the handsets - though the names are included only in the page's source code, so they're not directly visible.

All major US carriers should launch the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge sometime this spring. While Verizon doesn't have a pre-registration page yet (like AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile do), it will likely not be long before it, too, reveals plans to carry the new Galaxy series.

As you probably already know, the main difference between the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is that the latter sports a curved display a la Galaxy Note Edge - though it's one that wraps around both of its edges to create a symmetrical design.

We're looking forward to seeing both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on March 1. Stay tuned as we'll bring you all the official details about them as soon as they're announced.

yeah, knowing Samsung, they will make a two sided Edge version for the S7 edge. gotta leave room for improvement. Wow factor in full effect. I'm just curious, so what's the difference between the Note 4 and S6 Edge, other than size and one side having a Edge/Stylus factor!! Samsung is just shuffling the cards!

It sure takes a lot of horsepower to run Touchwiz which the flagship S5 couldn't run smoothly with. Lol How powerful is the S6? Can it encode h264 at slow settings for more than 1 fps? Lol Years ahead? Lmao. Stop the gimmicking bullcraps to justify the premium price for a mediocre device.

It just looks to me that you are butthurt that Samsung is actually trying to make the smartphone market more interesting and innovative by bringing out radical new designs. I also seems to me you are stuck a couple years back. If you have any sense of smart judgement you will see that touchwiz is actually faster than ios 8! Just do yourself a favor do a quick youtube search of the galaxy note 4 against iphone 6/ 6 plus for that matter. Also Samsung new lollipop touchwiz is also faster than stock android!!!!!

I've got the Note 4, runs anything I throw at it with no issues. But then, the overwhelming majority of professional tech reviewers have named it the best large sized phone on the planet, so you'd expect such performance.(And the S6 will be even more powerful, so yeah - years ahead. And no amount of tears from you will change that.)

Look, I have an iPad 4 and don't even get me started on the lag on iOS 8. The lag, imo, is actually worse than Android's. Fluidity is no longer an advantage of the iPhone.

We could have done a lot better without this "confirmation" news but this is Samsung season so we'll take it.

I think this image is the S6 and I reckon it will have edges on both sides and those edges will effectively be notification strips. The S6 Edge will may just have the one edge the same as the Note 4 Edge

So S6 will have one side curved display and S6 Edge will have both side curved display?
