With recent reports arising that suggest the next Samsung Galaxy S device is currently operating under the code name “Project Zero” many are expecting a massive shift in the design direction of Samsung’s flagship line. As our readers will know, Samsung recently surprised many by announcing two Galaxy Note devices this quarter, the expected Galaxy Note 4, alongside the aptly named Galaxy Note Edge. Unfortunately many prospective purchasers were disappointed to find that the Galaxy Note Edge may be released as a “limited concept device“.
However, thanks to a recent tip from senior analyst Jerry Kang during the last IHS Display Analyst Conference we may now know the reason for this. Jerry Kang claims that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will feature a dual-edged display, not drastically different to the Galaxy Note Edge which featured one edge. We can infer from all the pertaining information that Samsung released the Note Edge, initially planned to arrive with a dual-edge display, as a means of gauging consumer reaction for the concept.
Samsung is not afraid to shake things up, as they’ve proven before with devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Round, the camera-oriented Galaxy K series, and even the original Note device (considered by many to be the first successful “phablet”). With Samsung’s Q3 profits down 60% year-on-year it is easy to see why may they feel the need to try something new, and it will certainly make for an exciting build-up to what is usually a fairly predictable flagship release from the Korean electronics giant. Let us know in the comments, do you think a dual edged display will be enough to turn around Samsung’s fortunes?
