Leaked image claims to depict the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge
Although nothing has been confirmed, it would appear that Samsung has sprung a leak as of late given the waves of materials claiming to depict the Galaxy S6 in all its case-enclosed glory. It is understood that Samsung will be releasing a Galaxy S Edge model as well, something that became a much more plausible presumption earlier this week when the MWC (Unpacked) invitations went out. And now, we may have the first images of what the product might look like.
While the two devices on the left are believed to be the Galaxy S6 (and thus further the belief of a relocated flash/fingerprint sensor and protruding camera), the three on the right are apparently of the Galaxy S Edge. To be sure, the picture certainly looks real, and given that it’s showcasing cases made by Korean case manufacturer Versus, it would seemingly be all the more legitimate.
At first sight, the image may be a little confusing, because the right slope isn’t visible for the rightmost device; however, the right slope is clearly present on the second device from right. It’s very likely that this apparent inconsistency is due to the angle at which the device is shown in the render. After all, multiple leaks point to Samsung launching a device with two slanted edges.
Just to speculate, it’s theoretically possible that Samsung plans to produce two different variants so as to accommodate people of differing dominant hands: one with the curve on the right, and one with the curve on the left. Considering that the Note Edge was criticized for its alleged handling problems for southpaws (a problem this writer had no trouble with whatsoever for reference) it would make some sense.
The Samsung logos on the devices are extremely small, to the point of looking just plain out of place, especially on the fourth device from the left. And, on the leftmost device, the logo seems to be off-centered. These inconsistencies would strongly suggest this is an unofficial render made by Verus, rather than an image made or sanctioned by Samsung. So there’s a good chance the real product will look somehow different.
