The Galaxy S6, Samsung's next major release, is expected to be arriving in two different variants: the one with a 5.1-inch QHD screen, and the one with a dual edge curved screen - with the standard model to be made available first.

Going by the leaked images, the device has a glass front and back and metal sides and it's clear this is the standard model without a dual curved display. Notably, the home button seems to be slightly larger and rounder, meanwhile, the back camera module to have different positioning.

As mentioned earlier, Samsung is going to launch the special Edge version of the Galaxy S6 with curved screen. However, however, new reports claim the premium handset could be expensive - and that Samsung is struggling to make the display.

According to a report from Ars Technica, Samsung is launching both the curved and normal Galaxy S6 at high price points.

"Our source, who has seen Samsung's new devices in person, tells us that the mid-level 64GB curved Galaxy S6 will cost carriers €949 ($1,076), with the top-end 128GB model priced at €1,049 ($1,189)-around €50 more expensive than the comparable iPhone 6 Plus."

The same report also claims the Samsung is having issues for the curved display, which could mean the Galaxy S6 Edge is in very short supply when it launches.

Samsung has sent out invites for a launch event on March 1 where it is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in Barcelona.
