This wild Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge concept dreams of a phone with a triple curve, microSD card slot

Just around a month before the expected official unveiling of Samsung's next big thing, the upcoming Galaxy S7, we still haven't seen any huge leaks and the phone remains a fairly well kept mystery.
We have heard some things: Samsung is expected to introduce various versions of the device, and by now it seems certain that there will be a model running on Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 system chip and another one, with Samsung's custom Exynos solution. Other rumors have also mentioned that Samsung might release a regular Galaxy S7 and then a curved Galaxy S7 Edge.
A month before the official unveiling, Samsung has kept the Galaxy S7 Edge a secretWhile we have not seen the phone in its physical form, here is a wild concept made by the brilliant designer Martin Hajek that explores the idea of a futuristic Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with one more curve to it. While the current Galaxy S6 Edge has its screen curved on both of its sides, this wild S7 Edge concept imagines a phone with three curves: both edges and the bottom. Interestingly, the home key is somehow build inside that curve, and so are the two capacitive keys.
There is also a microSD card slot depicted right on the bottom of the device, with the slot being particularly interesting: it looks like your typical card reader where you don't have an enclosed tray for the card, but rather an open slot.
With a razor thin border around three of its four sides, all of the ports of the phone are pictured at the top: the 3.5mm headset jack and the USB Type C are all there.
You can see images of the concept right below, but don't forget for a moment that this is merely a concept and a wild one at that. Chances are that the Galaxy S7 Edge, when it arrives, will be much less radical than those images show.
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3600 mAh(36h 3G talk time)

Thats impossible. Especially doing that for gorilla glass 4 is harder than picking stars from the sky. Also, it's not realistic and I can already tell it's not comfortable to hold. Please stick back to the s6 edge design please. I want the s6 edge design of s7 please.

in order to curve an AMOLED screen like that, it would require reverting to gorilla glass 3. but it is entirely possible (although impractical and useless). the main problem would be the cost of making it. it is easy to bend an AMOLED screen though, and the screen can even twist, roll, etc...

I am a Samsung Galaxy fan, have a note 5 .This thing is so ugly, no way would I buy that. I would for sure move over to LG if Samsung Galaxys looked like that.

There is a reason for it being "futuristic".

Sometimes I think these CONCEPT renders are really meaningless. They are great pieces of drawings, but the artist himself/herself lacks some basic understanding of technology. Therefore most of these concept phones are impossible to be made, at least using the current technology. You are free to imagine all you want, just don't lable it as the current generation.
