Samsung might not launch a Galaxy S6 Edge after all

Samsung might not launch a Galaxy S6 Edge after all
Lately, we’ve been hearing quite a lot of things about the alleged Galaxy S6 - Samsung’s next flagship smartphone that’s expected to be released in the first half of 2015. 

There have been two separate reports suggesting that Samsung’s getting ready to wow us with a Galaxy S6 Edge that sports a curved, flexible display (similar to that featured by the Galaxy Note Edge), in addition to preparing a regular version of the new handset. 

However, according to Sam Mobile, “there might not be” any Galaxy S6 variant with a curved screen. Even so, it’s said that Samsung may still introduce a “separate variant” of the upcoming flagship - though it’s not clear what the difference between it and the regular model will be. The regular Galaxy S6 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and a brand new design - part of what Samsung is reportedly calling Project Zero. The smartphone should be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor (at least in some markets), while also featuring: a 16 MP or 20 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and Android 5.0 Lollipop.

As always when official details are yet to arrive, for now we can’t be sure of anything regarding the Galaxy S6. This, of course, won't stop the leaks coming, so check back soon for more!

Finally a 32GB storage. Hopefully no one won't be to disappointed in the GS6. It will be the king of phones for 2015.

I can see that. The 2 big problems I saw with Galaxy phone was touchwiz and design/materials used. They fixed touchwiz with the Galaxy s5. ( idk about everyone else. But to Mr the touchwiz presented in the galaxy s5 is a MASSIVE improvement. Specially in performance and animations. Even better with lollipop. And for design and materials used, that was corrected starting with the Galaxy Alpha release

Actually TouchWiz on the S5 was still quite laggy TouchWiz on the Note 4 is more or less as fast as iOS iPhone 6+ or Lollipop on the Nexus 5

32GB should be standard for any phone over $350. I mean its nice to have micro SD support for cards up to 128GB but you usually cant install apps to them unless you root your phone. and when your phone comes with 16GB its usually 9-12GB available.... Reasons I did not get a Galaxy S5, Xperia Z3, lack of internal memory... Looks like the SGS6 will be on my watch list now.

I think Samsung should focus on keeping the gs6 as the primary focus and not dilute too much with a hundred variants.

watch it still be the same old ugly phone with "beastly" specs, but still run slowly. Imo the galaxy alpha is still a ugly phone and the only reason that people call it the best looking samsung phone is because it has a metal frame that probably feels as cheap as the metal frame on the note 4. After the S4 I just gave up on Samsung because they continue to try and copy apple while making horrible phones. At least when LG copies Samsung's software features they do it right.

"Samsung because they continue to try and copy apple" There are still idiots spouting this kind of BS?

They have to rationalize Samsung success somehow...

lol, im spouting this because its true. We see Sony, HTC, Motorola, and even LG being innovative with their smartpones but Samsung continues to copy Apple. This is why I'm not holding my breath for the S6 to be released like how i did with the S5 release. Just for examples of Samsung copying Apple there is the fingerprint reader in the S5 and the gold galaxy S4

The frame on the Note 4 feels anything but cheap, but does it run slowly. It's is, simply put, the best large smartphone you buy right now, but a huge margin. Looks are subjective.

That should have read, "nor does it run slowly..."

Did you see and touch the Alpha? I don't think so. Just spitting words around.

From what we have been hearing, Samsung is in course-correcting mode and I really do expect them to pull out the stops this coming year - They have to. As I have read - that means fewer models, better mid-range choices, and premium high-end models. I'm using a new Moto X after my Note 3, and have to admit that I don't miss the physical home button one single bit. There are other things I prefer on the Moto, but quite a few things I miss from the Note 3. While the Note 3 has saturated colors (I know this has been remedied on the 4), I still prefer the display on it over the Moto. Maybe it's because I am slightly colorblind! The Samsung battery and camera are far superior too. I'm ready to jump back to Samsung with the right offering and hope it's this coming year.
