Samsung has long been flaked for using stale design language and cheap plastic material on its handsets. This has also resulted in poor sales figures. But it seems the South Korean technology conglomerate has had enough of it. The company will be launching two metal-clad Galaxy S6 handsets at the Mobile World Congress event, Bloomberg reports.

Citing its sources, Bloomberg notes that one of the two handsets will have curved display at three sides. Also Read - Samsung Note 9 issue: Users report seeing a line of light leak on some units
So far we’ve seen curved display at one side of the display in Galaxy Edge, and two sides in Xiaomi’s Mi Note, but Samsung seems to be taking a step further from current market trend. In Edge, the company had utilized the display to show notifications. Previous reports claim that the new curved display will be used to show notifications, weather report, information fetched from company’s health app and news outlets.

From what we’ve heard so far, the Galaxy S6 will come equipped with 4GB of RAM, and 32GB internal storage. On the camera front, the handset is pegged to come with either a 16-megapixel camera or a 20-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter upfront.
