New high-end smartphones from Samsung are now only one official announcement away from being revealed to the public, as the company has applied for trademarks on "Galaxy S6" and "Galaxy S6 edge" (note the lowercase "edge") in South Korea. This information was found in the KIPRIS (Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service) database.
Unfortunately, it is unknown at this point whether the Galaxy S6 Edge will be available only in South Korea or internationally as well. While many Asian manufacturers, including big names (Samsung, HTC, Sony), often keep some of the most interesting and advanced products to their home markets, speculations about a Galaxy S6 variant equipped with a curved-edge display started circulating from the moment the first such smartphone, the Galaxy Note Edge, was announced. With Samsung's profits steadily falling and their increasing difficulties to stand out among competing manufacturers, it would be very illogical of Samsung to not offer the highly-anticipated Galaxy S6 Edge in Europe and the US.
Samsung has registered a lot of new trademarks (Galaxy E3, J3, J5 and J7) with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) recently, but the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are not among them yet. Even with the S6 Edge's availability uncertain, the regular Galaxy S6 is almost certain to make it internationally, though it's still not clear which SoC the device will use - while Samsung was said to be avoiding the new Snapdragon 810 due to its overheating issues, Qualcomm is allegedly working on fixing them or has already done so. Currently, Samsung is expected to present the new Galaxy S6 smartphones at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) exhibition taking place in Barcelona, Spain between 2nd and 5th of March.
