Samsung Galaxy S6 to Reportedly Launch Alongside Galaxy S6 Edge

Samsung may not have announced any plans for its next Galaxy S flagship smartphone (reportedly codenamed ‘Project Zero’) likely to debut next year; however, reports related to the company’s plans have started to emerge.

Sammobile claims that it “can confirm” that the next Galaxy flagship will be called Galaxy S6. The publication has also learned that Samsung, similar on the lines ofSamsung Galaxy Note 4 and limited edition Galaxy Note Edge, will launch the Galaxy S6 Edge alongside the Galaxy S6.

It however goes on to claim that “the name could change in the coming months,” but that it was not very probable.

As of now, details related to the Galaxy S6 Edge are limited; though Sammobile speculates that it will sport one-sided curved screen, reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

Notably, the current report somewhat contradicts an earlier report that suggested the Galaxy S6 might feature ‘dual-edged’ display that will be curved on both (right and left) sides. We have already heard that the Samsung Galaxy S5 successor is codenamed Project Zero and is reportedly being built from scratch.

“Preliminary specifications” off the Galaxy S6 are tipped to include a QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution panel (size unspecified); a Sony IMX240 camera sensor, the same used in Galaxy Note 4; a 16-megapixel or 20-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and inbuilt storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.

Further, the Galaxy S6 is said to be powered by 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor (four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores), while another variant featuring a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor is expected.

We remind readers however, that nothing is official yet, and that all such leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.
