Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge leaked image

CNET has posted an image, which it claims is of the Samsung Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge, which they received from sources at a South Korean electronics distributor.The image also reveals that Samsung may be planning to launch the edge variant of Galaxy S6 with a dual-edged design.

The image shows five phones in the 3D render. The first phone on the left appears to be the Galaxy S6, while the second and third phones are in Versus-branded cases (one of the top South Korean smartphone case maker). The fourth and fifth smartphones appear to be the Galaxy S6 Edge, which appears to have a sloping curve on either side of the device. It is hard to make out the sloping curve on both the sides of the device if you look at the fourth and fifth handset in isolation, but the sloping curve on the left side of the fourth handset, and on the right side of the fifth handset seems to confirm the dual-edge design.

Based on the render, it also looks like Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will sport a metallic frame, and come with a physical home button. The shape of Galaxy S6 Edge’s bezel appears to be similar to silver curved shape featured in Samsung’s Unpacked invite for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on March 1.

Galaxy S6 will most likely be powered by Samsung’s own in-house Exynos processor and will feature a Quad HD display, 4GB RAM and a touch-based fingerprint sensor. The company is also looking to tone down its TouchWiz user interface on the S6 and optimise it to make the handset as smooth as the Nexus 6.

Let me know what you think of the render in the comments below.
