    The latest intel from SamMobile simply corroborates earlier reports that there will be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6 which will have a dual-edge curved display. Still, they claim that they have definitive confirmation of that previous report, so perhaps there's something to it. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    It's interesting to see that SamMobile nicknamed the phone the Galaxy S6 Edge, but it actually wouldn't be too surprising if that ended up as the actual retail name from Samsung. What do you think? If the price isn't too exorbitant, would you opt get a dual-edge Galaxy S6 Edge?

    I like the fact that it's confirmed a "variant". I can now breath a sigh of relief as I won't be forced to choose another manufacturer due to a screen feature I'm not crazy about.

    I'm a fan of the Note Edge and glad to hear there will be an S6 variant.

    They need to stop with the gimmicks and stick to what works. Not an edge fan at all.

    When the Note first came out it was considered a gimmick with a huge screen (who'd want a 5"+ screen?) and a useless stylus pen (who uses stylus pens anymore?)

    But why a curved edge? Large screens make sense.

    I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. After using the Note Edge I hope they keep it alive.

    What I would like to see them do is get rid of the top bezel, move the in call speaker directly into the screen like the Aquos, and instead of a second edge make it one long soundbar.

    This is kinda the only way that Samsung is really innovating at all, so I'm glad to see them continuing to try. I'm intrigued by the edge screen and I think they're smart to make more devices with the feature, whether dual or single, if they want it to take off. Like I said in one or a few threads about the Note Edge, I have a hard time seeing many developers jump on the bandwagon and truly support the edge screen when only one device utilizes it. If they make a fleet of them, even if they're just variants on their standard lines, they make it a bit more enticing for developers to get in there and do work.

    A large screen is not a gimmick, a curved screen is.

    I think the curved screen has merit. Looks like Devs do as well with all the new Apps that are available.

    I asked the very same question about Android Wear.
    And remember at the time large screens didn't make sense to the vast majority, including myself. I had a tablet if I needed bigger than 3.5" of screen that was working nicely for me if I used Fox fi, Tablet Talk, etc.
