Students walk out of Samsung Electronics' headquarters in Seoul July 7, 2014. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd on Tuesday said operating profit likely fell 24.5 percent in April-June, its lowest in two years due to slowing growth in the company's cash cow smartphone business and the strength of the South Korean won.

Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6, will reportedly be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) in Las Vegas between Jan. 6 and Jan. 9. Apart from the Samsung Galaxy S6, the company is also believed to unveil the curved-variant Galaxy S6 Edge at the same event.

According to credible sources of SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy S6 with the code name Project Zero and the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones will be showcased to "selected partners" only. This means the handsets will not be presented to the consumers at this point, reports GSM Arena.

When it comes to key specifications, the Galaxy S6 will reportedly feature a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, bundled with 1,440 × 2,560 pixels QHD screen resolution. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by either an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7420 chipset or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC and will be backed by a good 3 GB of RAM. As far as the memory goes, the device is expected to come equipped with 32 GB of internal storage capacity. If the reports are true, the upcoming handset will also support LTE Category 9/10 connectivity.

Moving on to the camera configuration, the S6 will reportedly sport a 20 MP rear-facing camera unit, in addition to a 5 MP front-facing shooter, says GSM Arena. On the contrary, SamMobile points out that multiple prototypes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 have visited AnTuTu benchmark site in the recent past. While one of them showcased a 16 MP camera, the other apparently sported a 20 MP unit.

In contrast to other Samsung smartphones that predominantly feature plastic/polycarbonate materials, the Galaxy S6 will reportedly come with aluminium construction altogether, says GSM Arena. This also means that the upcoming handset will not sport a metal frame, seen in the Galaxy Note 4, to get the metallic look. Alternatively, the smartphone will flaunt a full-metal construction, similar to the Galaxy A line of handsets.

On the other hand, reports also point out that the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone will feature a bent-glass display. The interesting part, however, is that the bent-glass display will not only be part of one side of the S6 Edge, similar to the Galaxy Note Edge, but also on both sides of the device. Other reports point out that the bent-display will be part of the flagship model Galaxy S6 itself and that the S6 Edge does not exist at all. With contradicting speculations going around, it remains to be seen though, if the two-side bent-glass display rumours will indeed be realised.

What do you think of the two-side bent-display? Will you be interested in buying one? If yes, what is the value addition of owning the said display? Feel free to leave a comment.
