Samsung unveils new metal glass made Galaxy S6 duo at MWC

The Samsung Unpacked event at the MWC 2015 is all about the next generation of Galaxy smartphones - the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Its no surprise that Samsung Galaxy S5 was a utter disappointment because it was hardly the exciting new Galaxy smartphone consumers were hoping for. The new Galaxy S6 series is a departure from the previous series, switching from an all-plastic shell to a dual-glass design enhanced with a metal frame. The new combination of materials works great indeed and the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are arguably, the most beautiful Galaxy smartphones to date. We’re sure, many will forgive the camera hump on the back for sure. The front and back body of the phones are molded from Gorilla Glass. The frame is aluminum.

Inside, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is powered by 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM and its own octa-core Exynos processor. Samsung didnt specify the processor name during our pre-briefing (well update this article when we get details), but it did mention that this is a 64-bit, 14nm system-on-a-chip. The company also claims its processor is about 30 percent more power-efficient than before, and that two separate quad-core sets are for two very specific purposes: One set is geared toward battery efficiency, and the other set is for performance.

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Note 4

Samsung Galaxy S6 packs a 5.1" Super AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution resulting into the amazing 577 ppi density. It is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The hardware Home key once again doubles as fingerprint sensor and supports the new Samsung Pay service. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will both include technology for mobile payments, though Samsung isn't unveiling a service to rival the iPhone's Apple Pay until this summer. Samsung's new phones will incorporate technology from LoopPay, a startup that Samsung is buying. LoopPay's technology reproduces the signals from a credit card's magnetic swipe, so it can work with existing retail equipment. Most rivals, including Apple Pay, require newer equipment.

When it comes to cameras, the Galaxy S6 packs in a rear 16 megapixel camera, and a 5 megapixel front facing camera. The camera also features realtime HDR and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to make sure your shaky hands don’t prevent you from taking a great shot. And to make sure you can take a photo in a moments notice, the camera is always on standby. In addition to this, the S6 comes with an improved fingerprint scanner, LTE CAt.6 at up to 300Mbps, 2,600 mAh non-removable battery, WPC and PMA wireless charging, and support for Samsung’s new mobile payments service, launching later this year.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Note 4 edge

This is one area where Samsung has doubled down on innovation and made some real strides. The Galaxy S6 boasts the title of being the fastest charging smartphone on the market — it takes just 10 minutes of charging to get 4 hours of typical use, and you can charge the phone to full in half the time it would take an iPhone 6. And better still, the S6 comes with built-in wireless charging. No additional cables or special phone cases are necessary to make it work.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will launch on April 10 in 20 markets, followed soon by even more countries in May. The Galaxy S6 will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz, while you will be abe to get the Galaxy S6 edge in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Green Emerald. The pricing is yet to be detailed.
