Would you buy a Galaxy S6 with a dual-edge curved display?
Samsung is apparently going to start using curved screens everywhere, as per recent comments of its chief designer, in order to set itself firmly apart from the competition, and combat the unforgiving profit slump that resulted this year in the face of increasing competition. Samsung chief Note Edge designer Kim Nam-su said that "A change in the platform can bring about a variety of new considerations... I think a curved screen is a big solution for overcoming those challenges."

As a result of this expected pivotal change in strategy, the so-called Project Zero undertaking for creating the Galaxy S6 might include not only a brand new and premium design paradigm, but also a bold new dual-edged screen concept, that will slope both to the left and to the right side of the flagship. Note Edge is said to be just a proof-of-concept for the possibilities that such screens open up for Samsung and third-party developers, with a screen bent on one side only, while next year's S6 and likely the Note 5, too, could be the real flexible display deals. 

We don't know yet what tangible benefits Samsung will concoct for the two side panels, or even if these rumors will pan out, but in case they do, we wanted to ask you if you would consider buying one, given that it will probably be radically redesigned compared to the current Galaxy S line members.

To each their own. I'm being forced to go phablet to get the specs/features I want, and I dont like it.. but that's the new world. Who knows, maybe I'll be a phablet lover in a month.. lol.

I tend to this this won't be applied to the S6. It's too radical from traditional phones and could sacrafice the best selling phone Samsung has. I see it being something like the Edge and Note 4. Basically one model with, and one without.

Well. LG took a shot with backbuttons and it works perfect ;)

Back buttons are not as drastic a change as using a edge screen.

True , but they are needed when you have a dual curved edge smartphone

It's 2015 next year. Every phone today has basically the same form factor, only getting thinner. About time that we see something different pervasively. I'm looking forward to an extended or secondary display with Galaxy S6.

only one side curve is better than two,how are you gonna hold the phone?

How are you gonna hold the phone without constantly pressing it on the edges? You can't have a good grip.

Depends on how I can hold it in my hands!

That's the rub, isn't it? LG had enough of an uphill battle just putting the volume rocker on the back of the phone. Now Samsung is putting content on the edges? In their cash cow phone? Good luck, Sammy.

Not a good conceptual look. Judging by the Note edges lack of beauty...nope.

I agree. It looks fugly. Note4 looks better, with rectangular, and sharp corners.
