Samsung is heavily rumoured to be working on the Galaxy S6 ready for a debut at Mobile World Congress 2015 in February. Leaked specs have appeared over the past couple of months but a new report has suggested there may be two different versions of the phone.
According to a report by SamMobile, the Galaxy S6 is likely to feature an Edge variant with a curved display. The report doesn’t come with a leaked name but SamMobile has suggested the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – we’ll go along with that.
Samsung released the Galaxy Note Edge in September – the first device by the company to carry a two-sided display. The Galaxy Note Edge had similar specs to the Galaxy Note 4 and launched alongside the normal flagship handset.
We reviewed both the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy Note 4 praising both handsets. KYM Editor Richard Goodwin wrote, "The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was awesome and the Galaxy Note EDGE is essentially the same deal, just with a funky new display. We LOVE this phone, although given its price a lot of people might be better off with its less-eccentric launch partner."
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is codenamed Project Zero and is heavily rumoured to be a ground up redesign. Galaxy S5 sales reports have suggested it has not sold anywhere near as well as its predecessor.
Specs for the new handset are rumoured to include a QHD display, a 16MP or 20MP camera and microSD support. As per usual there will be two different chipset versions of the Galaxy S6, one with a Samsung built Exynos 7420 chipset and another with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
