Samsung fans are no doubt eagerly awaiting the next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone series, which should be popping up in April if the established release pattern holds true. But fans may find themselves awaiting two new Galaxy S phones. According to rumors, a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be coming out alongside the Galaxy S6.

The rumors come from Samsung news site SamMobile, who reports that one model of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 will feature a curved display and will be called the Galaxy S6 Edge.

It would seem, then, that Samsung is trying to expand upon the design it released this year in the Galaxy Note Edge, a variant of the Galaxy Note 4 that includes a 160-pixel extension that curves off the right side of the touch screen. This Edge screen functions independently of the main screen, allowing users to check supported apps and even keep a shortlist of their favorite programs on standby, all without needing to leave the app that's running on the main screen. It's a neat and innovative new way to interact with a smartphone, and it looks like Samsung is trying to bring their Edge screen to more phones in their catalog.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is rumored to be packing a Quad HD display, a possible 20-megapixel rear-facing camera and up to 128 GB of internal memory. If the S6 Edge ends up following the same pattern as the Note Edge, expect it to have almost identical specs to the Galaxy S6 with the addition of the Edge screen.

So far, details are still few and far between about both of these phones since both are still in development, but expect more details to crop up once March and April come around next year.
