After officially launching the curved display Galaxy S6 Edge at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015), Samsung is now rumoured to incorporate dual-edged displays in the next iteration of its popular Galaxy Note series.

According to a G for Games report, the Samsung Galaxy Note will be launched in two variants, one of which will be the dual edge display edition.

It is worth remembering that Samsung released the Galaxy Note Edge smartphone last year along with the Galaxy Note 4. Galaxy Note Edge is seen as a dual-edge display version of the Note 4.

Currently, the South Korean electronics giant's Galaxy S6 Edge has a curved display that enhances the primary screen functionality.

According to the Korea Herald, people who had hands-on experience of Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge at the MWC were said to be impressed by the smartphone's dual-edge display. This has seemingly inspired Samsung to incorporate dual-edge displays in future high-end offerings.

As of now, the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Note, tentatively termed Galaxy Note 5, is said to be launched in September 2015 which conveys the impression that a dual-edge display variant of this smartphone could indeed be practical.
