Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge rumor round-up

With all the hype around Samsung’s much anticipated next flagship our news section has been overflowing with various reports about the new device, its possible specs and variants. While Samsung has the final word on this matter, with MWC still about a month away it seems unlikely that we will get any closure on the pressing question any time before the beginning of March.

We do however have a lot of little bits and pieces to go by and seeing how the whole situation is quickly getting out of hand we have tried to make a quick rundown of what has surfaced about the Galaxy S6 up to date.

If you think you might have missed something or feel understandably confused you can refer to the table below. From what we have heard so far it seems that the Next Galaxy flagship will be available in two separate variant – a standard one, supposedly with a 5-inch screen and a edged one, which if rumors are to be believed will go one step beyond the Note Edge and offer slopes on both sides of the display.

We also hear bits and pieces about the build and design of the device. Apparently it is going to spout a metal frame, which is all but understandable seeing how metal phones are in style nowadays and will probably have a protruding camera, similar to the one on Galaxy Note devices.

Be sure to remember that all of this is taken straight out of the rumor mill and should be taken with a grain of salt, but for now this sums up what we know about Samsung’s next flagship handset.
