Samsung Galaxy S6 to have a curved version
Curved displays are the latest trend in TV sets and smartphones as they allow manufacturers to innovate and offer new products, while for customers this means they can get a new technology that presumably makes displays easier to look at. Samsung’s own smartphones and displays are not an exception – last year the acclaimed Korean company launched the Galaxy Note Edge, which had a curved display. Now reports online suggest the upcoming Galaxy S6 high-end smartphone will have a version with a curved display too.
The curved display version of the smartphone still does not have a name but most probably it will be called Galaxy S6 Edge. The device will borrow a lot from the Galaxy Note Edge – after all why not take technologies that have proven themselves already? Thus the S6 Edge will have the same panel-based system that is featured in the Note Edge, which means it will offer the same Yahoo! Finance, news and sports panels, a briefing panel, a pedometer panel, favorite apps and more. You can also get the apps that you need from Samsung’s app store.
Again, the software that the curved S6 will use will largely be borrowed from the Note Edge but there are new things added. Owners of the S6 Edge will be able to activate the main panel through the left or right curve depending on the primary hand of the user. The so called Glance Lighting will light up the Edge area when you receive a call or messages and there will also be an option to choose favorite contacts and assign specific colors to them.
This is all that is known of the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge. The device will debut along with the “regular” Galaxy S6 during MWC 2015, which happens to take place between 2-5 March 2015.
