Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is the stunner in the couple. Its dual curved display makes it look unlike anything else on the market at the moment.

It is important to note that, despite the design similarity, the display of Galaxy S6 edge has different setup than that of Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The newcomer's screen is conventional - its curved glass cover produces a 2.5D effect.
A closer look at the curved display
The Korean giant has worked closely with Corning to develop the smartphone's curved glass. The latter's shape requires a specific temperature to achieve.

Samsung has taken advantage of the unique display design by implementing clever gesture controls. For example, you can pull your favorite contacts by swiping from the right edge.

Some of the available camera settings
Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will be available in four colors - White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, and Green Emerald. The green shade is particularly attractive in the flesh and unique for the model.
