SAMSUNG ELECT LTD(F) (SSNLF) expected to reveal Galaxy S6 with Dual Edge screens
According to Sam Mobile, SAMSUNG ELECT LTD(F) (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) is expected to release a special variant of the unannounced Galaxy S6 flagship with two edge displays. The edge display of the Galaxy S6 will be similar in functionality to the edge found in the recent Galaxy Note Edge (pictured above). The device is rumored to be announced along the Galaxy S6 during the Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona.
Sam Mobile mentions that the Galaxy S6 Dual Edge will run the same apps found in the Galaxy Note Edge, such as the Yahoo Finance, News, Sports, and Contacts, Pedometer powered by S Health, Night Clock, Express Me and other downloadable Edge panel apps. Sam Mobile says that the S6 Dual Edge will feature the capability to activate the main screen from the right or left curved edge. Additionally, another feature mentioned is the Glance Lighting that lights up the screen edge when the device receives an incoming call or a notification.
Sam Mobile adds that users can add their favorite contacts to the Dual Edge panels, and assign them with specific colors of their choice based on priority. Other reports indicate that the Galaxy S6 is expected to release with 4GB RAM. There had been rumors lately that Samsung has been facing heating issues with the Galaxy S6 and the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor. The Snapdragon 810 from Qualcomm is expected to power most of the upcoming flagship smartphones such as the Sony Xperia Z4 and the LG G4. Furthermore, Samsung is also expected to announce a new version of Galaxy Note 4 with the Snapdragon 810.
Last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy Note Edge during the IFA 2014, along with the Galaxy Note 4. The Galaxy Note Edge was seen to be an experimental device, and first of its kind with a curved display on the right.
