Samsung’s next big flagship phone — presumably to be the Galaxy S6 — will almost certainly be announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. According to Bloomberg, one model be all-metal and feature a screen that covers three of its sides.
According to “people with direct knowledge of the matter,” there will be two versions of Samsung’s new flagship phone. One will be draped with a screen that “covers the front and both the left and right sides;” the other will feature a standard front-facing screen. Both will have displays that measure 5.1 inches on the diagonal, according to the sources.
Displays aside, the same sources explain that both handsets will be hewn from solid lumps of metal, and feature “Samsung’s most advanced processor chips.” Which really you’d hope for in a flagship phone. Other details remain undisclosed.
If the rumours are true, it won’t be first time Samsung has flirted with the idea of a curved phone display — but it may well be the most mainstream. Still, the veracity of the claims remains to be seen. We’ll find out soon — most like at the Mobile World Congress in March. [Bloomberg]
