That speculation may have been confirmed on Monday, thanks to code spotted within the Vodafone website in the Netherlands.
Following the launch of the Galaxy Note Edge back in September, complete with a panel that curves over the right edge of the phone, speculation has been rife the company plans to double down with the S6 variant.
Not only does this seemingly confirm the variant is on the way, but also gives away the name.
Most observers have assumed the dual-edged variant would take the name Galaxy S6 Edge, but it seems Galaxy S Edge will win out.
After testing the waters with the Galaxy Note Edge, Samsung is likely to release the S6 variant in larger quantities and make a bigger push towards engaging customers with its flexible display tech.
Samsung released a limited number of Galaxy Note Edge handsets late last year, which was essentially a Galaxy Note 4 with a screen that curved around the right edge of the phone.
This flexible display enabled users to navigate around the phone faster using side-loaded ‘panels’ featuring favourite apps, news, sport and finance. Some Galaxy Note Edge reviewers suggested it was more difficult for left
handed people to use, so this option could help to give the phone a
more universal appeal.
