Samsung is reportedly supposed to bring two Galaxy S6 versions at CES 2015, including one that has a curved display similar to the Galaxy Note Edge, in order to demo them to mobile operators behind closed doors. Further supporting the rumor about two distinct Galaxy S6 models is South Korean publication AsiaE, which has found out that the new Galaxy S6 Edge flavor might pack two edge displays rather than just the one featured on the Galaxy Note Edge, with Samsung aiming to sell quite a lot of such devices this year.

The Galaxy S6 Edge might be the first smartphone in the world to have three displays, a main screen measuring more than 5-inches, and two additional screens on each side of it, offering users access to some special features.

Previous reports also claimed that a Galaxy S6 Edge model might be in the making, with some people saying the phone would have one edge display, and others claiming that tiny vertical screens will be placed on both sides of the handset.

According to AsiaE, Samsung is looking to sell around 10 million Galaxy S6 units with edge displays this year, and at least 35 million regular Galaxy S6 units, for a total of 45 million to 52 million units.

The phone should be unveiled at some point in the coming months, with the publication saying the Galaxy S6 could be announced in early March at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
