The Samsung Galaxy S6 might still be a ways off, but the rumours have already started rolling in.
The latest crystal-ball gazing tips the oddball idea of the handset landing with a dual-edged screen.
Tech analyst Jerry Kang reckons the Galaxy S6 will riff on the Note Edge, but reproduced the over-edge screen curving on two sides of the upcoming handset.
According to Kang, the display would carry over both the left and right sides of the device.
It’s not as crazy as it might sound – Samsung has already said the Note Edge is an experimental device, which could mean the Galaxy S6 will see a more refined version of the tech should its oddball forebear see some market success.
Kang also revealed that Samsung was originally planning to make use of a dual-edge display with the Galaxy Note Edge, but binned the idea before it went public.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note Edge on September 3 at its Unpacked event.
The Edge’s screen curved around the right side of the device, with the quirky side-panel boasting a notification bar, camera controls, and information display.
We’re expecting Samsung to announce the Galaxy S6 at next year’s MWC in March.
The spec sheet is tipped to read as follows: a Snapdragon 810 processor, with an Exynos 7420 chip variant on offer, 32GB built-in storage, a 16-megapixel snapper, and Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
