Designer Hasan Kaymak has created an interesting Apple iPhone 7 Edge concept that borrows features from the highly-popular Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The iPhone concept shows a smartphone without bezels. A few design features have also been changed.
The iPhone 7 Edge retains the form factor of the Apple iPhone 6. It sports a “full aluminum chassis,” but does not come with those unsightly plastic antenna cutouts. It also has more holes at the bottom, and the speaker have been moved to make may for the 6 mm profile.
The Apple iPhone 7 Edge also comes with a feature found on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, which is the ability to show notifications from the edged screen. We’re pretty sure, however, that Samsung would object if the concept sees the light of day.
Hardware was not mentioned.
Like any concept, it is less likely that this Apple iPhone 7 Edge concept will see the light of day.

SamMobile, a site renowned for having inside information on anything Samsung-made, has more information on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (Samsung Galaxy Note Edge shown below) and a device under “Project Zero 2.”
SamMobile reports that Samsung has renamed “Project Zen” to “Project Zero 2.” The Project Zero 2 device bears the model number SM-G928. Unlike the Note 5 (Project Noble), the SM-G928 does not come with an S Pen. It is rumoured to work just like the Galaxy S6 Edge.
Like the S6 and the S6 Edge, Samsung will offer an S View case and a Clear View case for the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920) and the Project Zero 2 device. SamMobile adds that a new accessory called the “keyboard Cover” will be available. It is likely to be a detachable keyboard, and will be available for both devices.
Samsung Mobile president J.K. Shin debunked rumours that say the Note 5 will be unveiled in July. The new phablets will be unveiled at IFA 2015 in Berlin, Germany in September, just like their predecessors.
As for specs, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to sport a 2K or 4K Super AMOLED flat screen, an “updated” Exynos 7422 octa-core processor, and an S Pen. The Project Zero 2 device is expected to sport a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED dual-edge screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, 32 GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS, and a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.

Not too long ago, we heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was coming in July. Normally, Samsung releases new versions of its Note series in September. The reason behind this is said to be Samsung attempting to gain an advantage over Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, which were rumoured to be unveiled early in August instead of the usual September. A top Samsung Mobile executive was quick to deny these rumours.
The exec in question is none other than Samsung Mobile head honcho JK Shin. GforGames reports that the exec said that the Note 5 is not coming earlier than expected.
Shin also denied a rumour surrounding the S6 and S6 Edge. We recently heard that only 10 million units of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge have been shipped globally, meaning the two new smartphone took longer to hit the 10 million milestone than the S4 and the S5. Shin said that this was not true.
Interestingly, Shin did not deny a rumour that claims Samsung is planning to launch another edged smartphone aside from the Galaxy Note 5 Edge. Rumour has it that the mystery device before the Galaxy Note 5 is unveiled in September. The question is, is the rumour true or not? We’ll just have to wait and see.

A new report has revealed that global shipments of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge have reached a combined 10 million units.
This is according to Yonhap News, who quotes a “high-ranking Samsung official” who said, “The sales of the Galaxy S6 series have already surpassed 10 million.”
If it’s only now the S6 and S6 Edge reached the 10 million milestone, this isn’t impressive at all.Global shipments of the Galaxy S4 hit 10 million in 27 days, while it took the Galaxy S5 25 days to reach the 10 million mark. This means that it took the S6 and the S6 Edge longer to reach the milestone.
On the flip side, the Samsung official did not mention when the S6 and the S6 Edge hit the 10 million milestone. This means that the two could have reached the milestone earlier.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge, the two sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) (some units ship with cameras made by Samsung, while some units ship with cameras made by Sony), a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,550 mAh battery for the the S6 and a 2,600 mAh battery for the S6 Edge. The S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighs in at 138 g, while the S6 Edge measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0 mm and weighs in at 132 g. They run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top. They are clad in both glass and metal, which make them more appealing to the consumer.

Will the tough as nails Samsung Galaxy S6 Active come with a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) just like the regular Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge? A User Agent Profile reveals that it will.
Hungarian-speaking Napidroid.hu was first to spot the User Agent Profile (see below). It reveals that S6 Active will have the model number “SM-G890A,” and the screen’s resolution will be 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD).
The Galaxy S6 Active is expected to be IP67-certified, which means it can survive being submerged in up to 3.28 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. Other than that, the rugged smartphone is expected to sport the same specs as the S6 and S6 Edge. These include a 5-inch screen with a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) , a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 3,500 mAh battery. The S6 Active’s measurements are yet to be determined, but from the leaked renders seen above, it is expected to be bulkier than the S6 and S6 Edge. It will run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top.
Like the S5 Active, the S6 Active is not expected to be only available in the US.
The S6 Active is expected to make its debut this month.
