Galaxy S6 Edge pics arrive, show departure from Note Edge design

Yesterday brought us the best images we’ve seen to date of Samsung’s Galaxy S6, as a number of pics captured the design of the upcoming flagship. But this coming Sunday in Barcelona we’re expecting Samsung to unveil not one, but two GS6 models, pairing the flat-screened handset depicted yesterday with a curved-screen Edge model. We’ve already had a few hints at how this phone might differ from the Note Edge, and beyond having a curve that extends onto two sides, teasers had suggested that the extent of the curve could be much less pronounced than on last year’s model. That’s all looking confirmed as we check out some new imagery, finally showing the GS6 and GS6 Edge side by side.

While we can’t see the Edge from all angles here, it’s clear that its curve does indeed extend onto the expected two sides. And the degree of that curve is just as conservative as it look in those recent carrier teasers.

This depiction of the GS6 Edge is supported by a separate report out of South Korea, with claims of a narrower, less curved design than the Note Edge delivered. Interestingly, that source drops a possible new name: the Galaxy S Dual Edge. That’s the first time we’ve seen that one, and despite apparent carrier confirmation for the Galaxy S6 Edge name, it may be one worth keeping in mind as we approach launch day.
