Leak suggests Microsoft is working on a Galaxy S6 Edge rival

The relatively unexpected success of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has been one of the year’s big tech stories, and it looks like Microsoft may be getting ready to jump on the curved-screened smartphone bandwagon.

A picture posted online by serial tech tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer shows what appears to be a Lumia panel with curved edges, similar to those seen on the Edge.

However, since “proto.nokia.com” can be spotted underneath the Windows logo on the bottom of the display, it appears that the design isn’t exactly brand spanking new.

It’s most likely a product of Nokia’s old mobile division, which now exists under the Microsoft banner.

If it was indeed an idea that was scrapped, Microsoft could do worse things than to resurrect it.

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge has proven itself an excellent device, scoring 9/10 in our review.

While the curves don’t offer much in terms of functionality, they certainly help the mobile stand out from the competition.

Microsoft is set to launch the mobile version of Windows 10 later this year, and we’re expecting the company to mark the occasion with the introduction of a new flagship smartphone or two.

Whether that features a curved screen or not remains to be seen.
