In just two days Samsung is going to formally unveil the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Ever since the company unveiled Galaxy Note Edge last year it was rumored that a similar version will also be released with the next Galaxy S flagship. Sure enough all rumors and leaks point to this possibility but a new report out of Korea claims that the curved Edge display on this Galaxy S6 variant isn’t going to be as useful as its Galaxy Note Edge counterpart.
One thing that has become evident from the recently leaked pictures of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is that the curved display isn’t as curved as it is on the Galaxy Note Edge. One of the reasons for this could be the fact that Galaxy Note Edge has a larger display, 5.6-inch, whereas the Galaxy S6 is only expected to come in at 5.1-inch.
Since the display isn’t as curved as many of us would have expected, Business Korea reports that it would be difficult to use this side panel due to the lower screen area, which means that it might not display message alarm or information like users can see on Galaxy Note Edge.
So what will the Galaxy S6 Edge be good for? Samsung will reportedly allow some software features to take advantage of the curved display, but if this report is to be believed then we shouldn’t expect it to be as useful as the Galaxy Note Edge.
