Samsung unveils Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6


BARCELONA: Samsung unveiled its two android smartphones Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 at GSM Association Mobile World Congress on March 01, 2015. Both are the successors to the Galaxy S5.


Rumors surrounding the Galaxy S5’s successor began to surface in January 2015. In early February 2015, Bloomberg reported that the S6 was to have a metal body, and was to be produced in a normal version, and version with a screen curved along the left and right sides of the device, similarly to the Galaxy Note Edge.

Both models are designed to address criticism and feedback received from prior models, starting from zero in particular, the company focused on improvements to the device’s design, cameras, and wireless charging capabilities. As part of its emphasis on design and targeting the majority of users, a number of features and capabilities seen on the Galaxy S5 were removed, including waterproofing, removable batteries, and expandable storage. A Samsung representative stated, “40% of the features in TouchWiz were removed in comparison to the S5.

Ben Wood, head of research at the CCS Insight tech consultancy, said,  “Samsung has clearly listened to feedback – not just for the Galaxy S5, which just missed the mark last year costing the company greatly – but also S4, which was a product that tried to cram in every piece of technology it could find.”


Both are scheduled to be released on April 10th, 2015.
