Will the Galaxy S6 one-up the Note Edge with a dual-sided curved screen?

Last week found us taking a look at some early rumors about Galaxy S6 hardware, with claims that the so-called Project Zero would pick up a high-res quad HD display, run an Exynos 7420, and offer a beefy 128GB storage option. But what if the GS6 isn’t just a GS5 with higher-end specs, but a phone that attempts to do things a little differently? Maybe like with that kind of wrap-around display Samsung introduced this year on the Galaxy Note Edge? That’s the theory being expounded by at least one analyst, suggesting that Samsung could up its curved-screen game with the Galaxy S6, giving it a display that curves over-the-edge on two of its sides.

Having such curved screen elements on both of the display’s long edges might help mitigate some of those Edge-favors-righties complaints, but is this something Samsung’s really considering? The analyst presenting this theory doesn’t offer a much more compelling argument than “more curved surfaces = bigger screens = more profit for Samsung Display,” but that sounds a little weak to us. That’s not to say that such a thing couldn’t happen, but we’re going to need a lot more convincing – either by way of some actual evidence, or at least a more persuasive theory for why the company might take this action.

There’s also no sign here of if Samsung might plan a regular-old flat-screen GS6 as well as some kind of GS6 Edge, or if there would only be this one curved model. The idea of a curved-only GS6 does sound a little odd to our ears, but so did the Note Edge when those rumors first surfaced.
