Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Verus Leak

Galaxy S6 Edge Renders Show Left and Right-Edged Device Variant

February 5, 2015 - Written By Phil Bourget

The Galaxy S6 has been hot news lately, and for a good reason or two. Namely of course is that it’s Samsung’s spring flagship, packing the unlikely silicon from within its own company instead of looking to San Diego’s Qualcomm for processing power this year. The other reasons are the rumors of a much-improved, less plastic-heavy design and construction, as well as the addition, as with the Note 4 this past fall, of an Edge-variant sibling device. The S6 has seen the ridiculous rumor, however, of a dual-curve (one on each side) display, but today we got some even more interesting looks at some various angles of Verus cases on renders of the upcoming S6. If you want to check what we got of Verus earlier, head here and check back when you’ve had a look.

These come courtesy of CNET Korea and ZDNet Korea, and it showcases five devices of various orientations. We’ve covered some various case leaks, including an earlier one featuring Verus, with what might be the regular model of S6 inside its protection. So, let’s go across the five devices and see what we can gather, shall we?

Farthest left, which will be one just for ease of reference. looks to be the original form of the S6, no edges in sight, which is likely to be partnered with the second device, which is the device next to it but in one of Verus’ new cases. In the middle, we see the other edge of the previous device, showing no curvature on the edge with the power button. Then the last two are the gold mines. See them, how the curve is on the right of the device’s front? And the fifth device has it on the left, as with the Note Edge? Also, if you look closely, you can see the volume rocker / buttons along the edge of the fifth device, so that should make it interesting, since all five devices have the same power-on-right and volume-on-left configuration Samsung has for all of its devices.

The possibility of the dual-edged display actually referring to a left or right-handed prioritized model of the S6 Edge would definitely be nifty, because the Note Edge just let you use it upside-down with virtual keys if you were not the intended dominant hand audience member. Does this seem a little overkill for a smartphone, offering a hand-version of the new improved Samsung flagship? Would you consider getting a left or right-edged S6 Edge, or would you still go for the previously rumored dual-edged display? Or, will you probably just pick up the regular one, since the cost and excessiveness will both be lower on the main device?  Let us know down below.
