Huge leak: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured for the first time

Galaxy S6 vs. Galaxy S6 Edge: Picture Leak

If you thought the Galaxy S6 model that’ll sport a curved display would get similar software features as Samsung’s Note Edge phablet, then you might be in for another surprise. As SamMobile reports, the Galaxy S6 Edge might lack the special Edge functions available on the Galaxy Note Edge, as Samsung has apparently chosen a different approach to such displays.

Even more interestingly, a handset said to be the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge Samsung intends to announce this coming Sunday has just been pictured for the first time

FROM EARLIER: The iPhone 6 might be low-res, but Apple’s highest-resolution device ever is coming soon

Following Wednesday’s major leak that showed a clear picture of what is believed to be a Galaxy S6 prototype, a second set of images has popped over on xda-developers, where a user posted photos showing the two Galaxy S6 prototypes side-by-side, with their displays turned on.

SamMobile notes that the Edge displays on the Galaxy S6 Edge aren’t working separately from the main display, as they do on the existing Galaxy Note Edge.

The publication speculates that the Edge displays might work separately only when needed — one such scenario is having the tiny vertical screens show notifications and other information when the screen is off. At all other times, they’d simply form a continuous screen together with the main display.

The newly leaked Galaxy S6 Edge images follow below.
