Just like we knew would happen, Samsung has introduced the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones at the MWC in Barcelona. Read on to see what is new.
Samsung’s latest flagship is coming in several colors including but not limited to green, white, gold and black. Other designs might include colors based in jewels (expect sapphire or emerald). The phone sports a 5.1 inch QHD Super Amoled screen, 3gb of ram, 4G capabilities, a 16 mpx camera in the rear and a 5 mpx front one.The galaxy S6 also sports an alluminium frame, and comes in three variations of 32, 64 and 128 GB storage. Also, the main draw of the phone is that it features a curved screen (on both sides in the case of the Edge, making it ideal for left handed people).
Samsung explained that the new S6 models are not based on the S5, but were designed from the ground up with beauty as the main design pillar. Besides, with its thinness and aluminum frame they also made light of Apple by claiming that “the S6 does not bend”. Another thing that works just like with Apple gadgets is their new print reader as seen in the iPhone 6.
The new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will feature a new, redesigned software meant to simplify the process of looking for things by eliminating some icons and creating a faster, easier way to navigate with simple yet bright colors. What Samsung did take from the S5 is the camera software, which was one of the few very praised features on the previous flagship.
Samsung also claimed the Galaxy S6 will charge up literally twice as fast as the iPhone 6 and touted wireless charging for the future, as to forfeit cables for ever, and wouldn’t that be something.
Despite all these new features it is a shame that Samsung decided to drop the Micro SD slot and the possibility of submerging it (we don’t know about you, but we drop our phones a lot) in the name of design – at least we’re left with the new services like Samsung Pay to use the phone as a credit card, and Milk VR, for watching media in virtual reality.
