It looks as if Samsung plans to release multiple versions of its Galaxy S6, including one with a curved screen just like that of the Note Edge. Photos obtained by CNET Korea reportedly show five variations of the phone, which is scheduled to be unveiled March 1.
Two of the phones in the image are covered with cases, so it's difficult to tell what they look like. Samsung usually releases a more durable version of its flagship phones called the Active, so it's possible one of those devices is the Galaxy S6 Active.
The photo lines up with previous leaks. It looks as if Samsung plans to use a smooth, polished back for the S6, unlike the dimpled rear panel and glossy plastic it has used before.
The curved edition looks almost identical to the Galaxy Note Edge, which has a secondary display that curves around one edge. The curved Galaxy S6 seems to be rounded on just one side, which would contradict earlier reports that suggested it would curve on both sides.
Other than a new design, the Galaxy S6 is expected to come with a sharper 5.1-inch screen that packs 577 pixels per inch, a new mobile-payments system created by Samsung, and a fresh, simpler version of Samsung's TouchWiz software that is more similar to stock Android. We expect to learn more next month.
