Samsung has revealed a second version of its new S6 flagship in the form of the Galaxy S6 Edge, as it takes radical measures to revive flagging sales of its top-of-the-range handsets.

Like last year’s Galaxy Note Edge, it features a curved screen, although this time the screen drops down both sides of the device.

A new People Glance features lets you see details of contacts, emails and messages on the curved sides of the handset, making it ideal for sneaking a peek while your phone is slapped on a table.

Otherwise, its specs sheet is much the same as its S6 stablemate, with the same 16-megapixel camera as the standard edition.

That means a quick launch function for faster snaps and improved outdoor visibility.

The phone is the same size as the Galaxy S6 too, making it a bit more pocket–friendly than the sizeable Galaxy Note Edge.

Samsung says the Galaxy Note Edge will be up for grabs from April 10th, with preorders due to start in early March.
