Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured alongside Galaxy S6: Edge displays not so edgy?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured alongside Galaxy S6: Edge displays not so edgy?Just when we thought we knew everything there was to know about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, a last-minute leak suggests the phone won’t be quite as edgy as last year’s Galaxy Note Edge.

Rather than having two additional Edge displays – left and right, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge might function with what's essentially one large, curved display.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge picture leak (above/left) first appeared on xda-developers, and while there’s not a great deal to take away at first glance, closer inspection reveals something rather interesting about the Galaxy S6 Edge’s display.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured alongside Galaxy S6: Edge displays not so edgy?See, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge’s Edge display - on its right - appears to be a curved continuation of the main display, rather than something that functions independently.

In pics of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (let’s chuck one in, right), we’re used to seeing the Edge display housing shortcuts.

Naturally one might wonder if we’re reading too much into this, but an independent report from Business Korea says much the same thing.

“The size of the Galaxy S Dual Edge is smaller than the Galaxy Note Edge. So, it was presumably difficult to enlarge its dual-edge screen,” says an anonymous source.

“I think that there will be no message alarm or information storage functions owing the narrowed screen.”

If – if – that’s all true, it really begs the question: Why would someone want to pay an extra €100 for a Samsung Galaxy S6 that simply has a curved display left and right?

We’ll wait for the official Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge launch before passing judgement. Fortunately, it’s just three days away!

Also: compared to the 'normal' Note 4 the Galaxy Note 4 Edge is not doing all that well, is it? I seems to remember figures along the lines of 1:5? But then: It was 'supposed' to be a niche device.... aka: R&D paid for by early adopters
