During its Unpacked 2015 event as part of this year’s Mobile World Congress, Samsung unveiled its newest flagship smartphones – the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
The two smartphones share very powerful hardware including a 577 ppi display, octa core Exynos 7420 processor and a 16MP camera. The Galaxy S6 Edge also flaunts a screen which is curved at both sides.
Samsung has surely put a lot of effort in the design of the S6 and S6 Edge. Both use Gorilla Glass 4 for the front and back panel while the sides are clad in metal.
The 5.1-inch displays use Super AMOLED technology while the camera can take a picture in just 0.7 seconds after pressing the camera icon. Both cameras have an f/1.9 aperture enabling it to take great pictures even in low light.
There’s 3GB of RAM aiding the 64-bit octa core CPU and its Mali-T760 graphics processor in running your favorite games and apps on the Android Lollipop platform.
4G LTE, dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 with apt-X, NFC, USB OTG and MHL are all support by the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The Galaxy S6 version in the Philippines will come with dual nano SIM card slots while the S6 Edge is a single SIM device.
A finger print sensor is once again integrated in the home button which now works with a simple press instead of a swipe and supports mobile payment via Samsung Pay.
However, Samsung removes two essential features that many people loved with its Galaxy smartphones – removable battery and a microSD card slot.
