It's been rumored there could be more than one version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone, but now it looks like we could see as many as five different body types when it launches next month.
According to alleged leaked photos obtained by CNET Korea, Samsung is working on five variants of its next-generation flagship smartphone, which will likely debut at the Mobile World Congress conference on Sunday, March 1 in Barcelona.
The obtained image shows five phones in what appears to be a promotional marketing shot. While the phone on the left looks like a traditional version of the Galaxy S6, the one on the far right appears to have a curved edge similar to the design of the Galaxy Note Edge. It also appears to have a physical home button and a thick, silver bezel around the screen.
The look of the bezel closely resembles what was portrayed on the press invite to the Samsung Unpacked event, which includes the tagline "What's Next."
The smartphone second from the right also hints at a dual-screen curved edge.
The Galaxy Note Edge launched in September 2014 and it was unlike anything seen outside of a technology demonstration. The device has two screens, the main Quad HD display (2,560 x 1,440) and another that looks like a thin strip on the edge — this is where widgets and other information are located.
Meanwhile, the other versions depicted in the image reveal different casings — the second from the left includes a Verus cover from a popular South Korean case maker. The third (center) smartphone has a thicker casing, but it's unclear if it also comes from Verus.
The unveiling will be an important moment for Samsung as it still faces stuff competition from Apple, which recently reported its strongest quarter for iPhone sales ever with 74.5 million units sold. In contrast, Samsung reported a decline in quarterly sales for the YouTube for those itching to watch the presentation online.
