CES 2015 is almost in full swing and according to the latest reports concerning Samsung’s plans at the trade show, the Korean tech giant will allegedly showcase both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge at the event. The catch, however, is that Samsung will apparently reveal these brand new products to select partners only, which include carriers and accessory makers.
Regardless of who will get to see the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in action first, the latest reports from the company’s homeland suggest that once the Edge will hit the shelves, it will do so as a limited edition smartphone. More details right after the break.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to be Launched as a Limited Edition Device?
According to industry insiders cited by the Korean outlet Asian Economies, the SGS6 Edge will be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature a double-edged display, which will wrap around the left and right-side edges of the chassis. The handset’s internal specifications will be roughly the same as those of Galaxy S6’s, which should pack a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 / Exynos 7420 SoC, and a ~5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, just to name a few.
More to the point, the report suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be a limited edition smartphone, with “only” a “10 million units shipped in 2015” forecast. This isn’t the first time we come across this figure, and back in December 2014 we also heard that a total of 45 million Galaxy S6 devices will be shipped in 2015 – 10 million of which will be accounted for by the S6 Edge.
In other words, the SGS6 Edge might be sold in a similar fashion as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge. The handset in question is not as much of a rare sight as the Galaxy Round before it, but you can’t easily find it on the shelves of any third party smartphone retailer either.
That’s all we have for now, but we’ll be keeping an eye on Samsung in the following days so stick around for more.
