The sixth generation Samsung Galaxy S series smartphone will come with a variant known as the Galaxy S6 Edge. At least that is what the chatter has been as of late. New reports stemming from SamMobile indicate that the alternate take on the flagship will include a display that overlaps the side of the device. You know, like the Galaxy Note 4 Edge which was announced last fall. Actually, it gets better.

According to the latest round of gossip, the Galaxy S6 Edge will actually include two edge displays, one on each side.

First of all, you will have the ability to activate the main edge panel on the right or left curve, depending on your primary hand. Then there’s Glance Lighting, which will light up the Edge area when you receive a call or notifications, when you turn your device over. Also, you will have an option to choose favorite contacts and an ability to assign specific colours to them. So, calls and notifications from important people will show the designated color lighting on the edge area.

We’ll be interested in seeing how much effort Samsung puts pushing this particular model. Will it be a limited release or might Samsung get aggressive with its features and selling points? We might not have to wait long to find out; Mobile World Congress is not far off and we suspect Samsung will host an Unpacked event to announce the handset(s).
