A tale of two Edges

Which is which?

From the front, the S6 Edge looks almost identical to the S6, except for the slight curves on both sides of the screen.

Lefties, this one's for you

It differs from the Note Edge in the fact that its rounded left edge is friendly to southpaws, too.

From the top

Unlike the S6, the S6 Edge has its SIM card tray at the phone's head.

Subtler bend

The S6's curve is shallower than the Note Edge's.

Pleasing shape

I think the rounded display gives the phone a more organic look and feel.

Different profiles

The Galaxy S6, top, has its SIM card holder on its spine. Not so for the S6 Edge, which carries it up top.

Emerald glow

Samsung is making the S6 Edge in four colors with highly reflective backings. Emerald green is the most unusual, next to gold. It also comes in white and black.

Green with envy?

Unless the light hits it just right, the green S6 Edge can look black.

Pocket size?

The 5.1-inch Galaxy S6 Edge won't squeeze comfortably into smaller pockets, but it's smaller than the 5.7-inch Note Edge.

Now with wireless charging

Samsung will sell its own wireless charging pad for the Qi-compatible S6 and S6 Edge.

Not just Samsung's

You'll be able to use other pads too.
