Samsung is readying itself to launch its next flagship smartphone - widely believed to be called the Galaxy S6 on March 1. With leaks and alleged information about Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S device picking up steam, a new report from Bloomberg reveals that Samsung may offer the Galaxy S6 with a display that can be view from three sides - front, right and left.
The latest such leaks comes from Bloomberg, which apparently claimed that Samsung is preparing to launch two variants of the Galaxy S6 at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC). Both phones would have metal bodies, come with 5.1-inch screen sizes and uses Samsung's most powerful mobile processors, the source said.
Samsung already offer the Galaxy Note Edge with an edge display. However, the Note Edge's 5.6-inch QHD screen that curves onto the right side to display notifications and other useful information. With the Galaxy S6, Samsung would try to bend the display to both the right and left sides.
It's generally believed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will mark an aesthetic departure from the Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S6 - as it's believed to be called - will be Samsung's most advance smartphone. This does seem likely, given the lower than expected reception that Samsung's Galaxy S5 got last year.
Earlier this week, the specs of the Galaxy S6 Edge appeared on benchmarking app AnTuTu. Falling in line with earlier reports, Samsung's got its own processor inside the new Galaxy S series device with an Exynos 7420 chip running the show and 3GB of RAM by its side. Thanks to Samsung's new Exynos chipset, the device scored a record high 60,978 on AnTuTu, making this one of the most powerful phones around.
Last month, Samsung sent out press invitations to a March 1 event at Mobile World Congress. The invitation said "What's Next" and displayed an image that seemed to hint at a curved device.
