As per the leaked image, there would be two variants of the Galaxy S6; a variant with a normal display, and a variant with a dual-sided curved edge display.

You can also see that there are two separate buttons for increasing and decreasing the volume, unlike the single volume rocker from the Galaxy S5. The home button, which also doubles up as a fingerprint sensor, appears to be larger, which might point towards a touch-based fingerprint sensor, similar to that of the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus.
