Samsung's next big flagship phone—presumably to be the Galaxy S6—will almost certainly be announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. According to Bloomberg, one model be all-metal and feature a screen that covers three of its sides.

According to "people with direct knowledge of the matter," there will be two versions of Samsung's new flagship phone. One will be draped with a screen that "covers the front and both the left and right sides;" the other will feature a standard front-facing screen. Both will have displays that measure 5.1 inches on the diagonal, according to the sources.

The Galaxy 6S won't be first time Samsung has flirted with the idea of a curved phone display—but it may well be the most mainstream. Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge, which we reviewed in November, can be seen as a precursor to the rumored triple screen. As you can see in the photo above, the right side curves down to turn the entire right edge of the device into a second screen.


Whether the rumors are true still remains to be seen. We'll find out soon—most likely at the Mobile World Congress in March. [Bloomberg]
