Is Samsung producing a Galaxy S6 Edge variant next year?


There’s going to be a Samsung Galaxy S6 next year, of this we are certain. A report last month gave us a glimpse of something at Samsung called Project Zero, and now we’re getting word that the Galaxy S6 Edge may be a variant of Sammy’s flagship next year.

SamMobile is reporting that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is going to have an interesting variant next year, and it may be called the Galaxy S6 Edge. It appears as if they are going the way of the Note 4, which means we will get a regular version of the Galaxy S6 alongside its “edged” counterpart. It’s not shocking news, and something we honestly expected considering Sammy is attempting to shake things up and curved displays are the “in” thing at the moment.

While the report didn’t give us any other juicy details, it’s safe to say Project Zero aka the Galaxy S6 will have top-notch specs like a QHD display and a Snapdragon 810 processor. It will essentially be a souped up version of the Galaxy S5, and the build “should” include a bit more metal this time around as well. There is always a chance Samsung will do something different in terms of the design, but we don’t think that will happen this year aside from the Galaxy S6 Edge variant.

It remains to be seen how the Galaxy Note Edge will do as it’s expensive, and not the type of device your average consumer is going to flock to in droves. It’s also not designed for lefties, so we still consider it a niche device at the moment. That could change with the Galaxy S6 Edge if Sammy cranks enough of them out and keeps the price low. We’ll find out next year as the Galaxy S6 is expected to be unveiled during MWC 2015.

Do you like the curved edge concept or are you waiting for a truly flexible device?
