This is one of those rumors that we hope will not come to be true. Reports in Korea are suggesting that the Galaxy S6 Edge that Samsung will launch on Sunday alongside the Galaxy S6 flagship will actually be called the Galaxy S Dual Edge and will feature two side screens and not just one. All good so far, but now things get a bit disappointing as those dual screens will apparently have little functionality and will be mostly for aesthetic purposes.You can color us pretty unconvinced at this point, but we'll press on anyway. The Galaxy Note Edge launched last year with a single folded screen that allowed notifications, images, media controls, app shortcuts and other functionality. However, the Galaxy S Dual's two screens will apparently not be as sloped so will not be able to house much information at all. There is even a leaked image that seems to support this claim, meaning those folded screens are just for show. Considering Samsung is likely to charge a premium for the handsets, how can the company justify those screens just being for looks? I am willing to wager that there will be functionality, but these reports are certainly cause for concern.
