Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge names trademarked
Samsung has inadvertently confirmed the existence of both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge via a new trademark filing.
Spotted by the GalaxyClub website, Samsung’s new filing proffers the names of both upcoming devices, although little else.
It’s also worth noting that the filing is in South Korea, Samsung’s home turf and one of its core markets.
What’s interesting about the filing is that the S6 Edge doesn’t come paired with the expected ‘Galaxy’ pre-fix.
This could be an effort to reduce the length of an otherwise unwieldy name, however, or simply an inconsequential mistake.
The main thing to take from this is that rumours of an S6 Edge spin-off device now seem all but guaranteed.
Most rumour-spinners suggest the S6 Edge will take up the core Galaxy S6 spec sheet, bundled with a Note Edge-style design that sees the sides of the display wrap over the edges of the device.

Samsung has kept quiet on both handsets thus far, but we’re expecting official details to be released around March or April this year.
While we don’t know much about the Galaxy S6, it’s very likely to land with either a custom-built Exynos chip, or Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810.
