    The 6.2 inch might mark the first time I ever buy a Samsung phone. Hope it ends up being true.

      Not a fan of the Galaxy Mega?

      I find the frame around the screen makes it really big. If they are able to keep the bezels at a minimum so it’s the same size but with more screen, then I’d definitely buy that. When I went to the Philippines, I almost bought the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 cause it was 6inch with only a hair bigger than the LG G3 I had at the time.

      well
      I like the Mega size
      But it is way too slow and far from a flagship phone

    What about all those people who want a more compact phones with full features? I guess it’ll be fine if they increase the size of the screen by just reducing the bezel. I wouldn’t want a larger phone in my pocket than my note 4 at 5.7″.

      The article states that the physical dimensions are going to be the same. So You’re getting more screen for that front area.

    “For the sake of comparison, the company’s two current Galaxy S7 flagship smartphones feature 5.1-inch and 5.7-inch displays, respectively.”

    Think there’s a little typo: Galaxy S7 Edge has a 5.5″ screen.

      Fixed! Thanks for the heads up.

    “will not ship a flat variant” … damn. If that’s the case I’ll be looking elsewhere for my next smartphone. IMO, the ‘edge’ versions are a gimmick and I’m not a fan.

      Was about to log in just to say the same. This is a stupid move on Samsung’s part.

    Problem with the Samsung Edge line is the false positives that get registered with your palm as finger touches. Unless they get that to near perfection, it’s going to be even worse than the current generation.

    Nice that they are increasing the size to bad it’s edged, when you factor in the edge, 5.7 is more like 5.5 and the current one is less. Wish people would start measuring phones as having xx Horizontal by xx Vertical instead of the current deceptive screen measuring system.
