Samsung Galaxy S6 to have a regular version, and an Edge variant with curved display
Not long ago, we heard that Samsung would design its upcoming Galaxy S flagship from scratch under the codename Project Zero. Another rumor had it that the new handset would sport a curved display a la Galaxy Note Edge, with the mention that it should be curved on both sides, not just on the right.

Now, Sam Mobile “can confirm” that the upcoming flagship will be called Galaxy S6 - but that’s hardly a surprise. The website also notes that we should expect to see a Galaxy S6 Edge (name subject to change) variant, which would, indeed, offer a curved display, though it’s not clear if it’s going to be curved on one, or two sides. Assuming that all this is true, it looks like we’re going to have a regular Galaxy S6, with a flat display, and a version of it with a curved screen. The latter may be released only in select markets - just like the Galaxy Note Edge.

As a reminder, the rumored specs of the Galaxy S6 include a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD) display, a 5MP front-facing camera, 16 MP or 20 MP rear camera, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or Samsung Exynos 7420 processor. The smartphone should be made out of metal - at least partially.

We’re expecting Samsung to announce the Galaxy S6 in the first quarter of 2015 - one year after the Galaxy S5. What are your expectations regarding the new Galaxy flagship?
