Samsung Galaxy S6 is going to arrive two different versions; one will be a regular version device and the other one will be sporting an edge screen. When the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was announced in September 2014, it was revealed alongside a curved display smartphone called the Galaxy Note Edge. Now, the Galaxy S6 is also expected to roll out in the market in two versions like the Note 4 and Note Edge.

According to Business Insider, both editions of the Galaxy S5 successor are slated to get unraveled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 event that will be held in March at Barcelona. As IBTimes had reported in the previous week, the new information from Business Insider further affirms that the regular version of the Galaxy S6 will come with metal unibody. The second edition will have a curved screen like the Note Edge and it will be able to work separately from the main screen. On the curved screen, users will be able to see alerts and updates from specific apps. The rumour mill is referring to this device as Galaxy S6 Edge.

In some regions, the Galaxy S6 will come out with Snapdragon 810 chipset whereas at other places it will feature the Exynos 7420 chipset, says GSMArena. However, as of this writing, there are plenty of rumours that suggest that the Snapdragon 810 is plagued with lot of issues. Samsung may even consider releasing all the Galaxy S6 with Exynos chip and 3 GB of RAM if Snapdragon 810 chip problems do not get resolved.

GSMArena claims that even though it is speculated that the Galaxy S6 will come with a 5.5-inch display, it may launch with a slightly smaller display of 5.2 or 5.3-inch, as Samsung usually prefers to use bigger displays on its Galaxy Note series phablets. GSMArena also says that if the Galaxy S6 comes out with full metal construction body, it will not feature a removable battery.

During the upcoming MWC 2015 event, the South Korean tech giant is also rumoured to come out with a new smartwatch. This time around, Samsung will be launching a smartwatch with round display like the Motorola Moto 360. Samsung is yet to confirm on the two editions of Galaxy S6 and round display smartwatch.
