It’s been 7 months since the first Samsung Galaxy S5 went on sale, and with the end of the year closing in, we’re now starting to receive the very first reports concerning the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the features that could find their way on the device.
The latest rumor regarding the SGS6 comes from Sammy’s homeland and suggests that the smartphone will hit the market with a dual-edge display, taking the concept behind the Galaxy Note Edge to the next level. Check out the details right after the break.
Samsung Galaxy S6 to Employ a Dual-Edged Screen?
During the last IHS Display Analyst Conference, senior analyst Jerry Kang said that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will sport a dual-edge display which will be curved on both the left and the right sides of the device. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was the company’s first smartphone to be fitted with an “edgy” screen, but as most of you know, the Edge’s display is curved only on the right side. Interestingly enough, Jerry Kang added that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was initially planned to arrive with a dual-edge display, but for unknown reasons, Sammy decided to ditch the plan in favor of the current configuration.
In another train of thought, earlier this week, sources of SamMobile have apparently dug out a few details in regards to the Samsung Galaxy S6’s specifications, and according to the initial report, the S6 would apparently employ a QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.
The Galaxy Note Edge whose screen also resides in the QHD category features a resolution of 2560 x 1600 in order to compensate for the extra screen real-estate on the right edge, so if a dual-edged display will be fitted on the SGS6 we’re obviously wondering if the screen resolution will result in 2560 x 1760 pixels to compensate for the second edge as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is said to be built from the ground-up as a brand new device, reason why, at the moment, the smartphone is referred to by the codename “Project Zero”. If the handset would employ a dual-edged screen, would you consider this to be a strong selling point?
