Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones during the Mobile World Congress 2015 held in Barcelona. These smartphones will be available across the world starting from April 10th. Like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Launch Event, we expect it to release here in Nepal on the same day as the global release. There has been no words about the pricing, but we expect the S6 to be priced at around $650 (32GB) and the edge variant to be around $850 (32GB).

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has a metal body and a Gorilla Glass 4 on the back. The Galaxy S6,looks much similar to the Note 4, and is perhaps the best design we see in the Samsung flagship. Below are some notable specs of Galaxy S6:

  • Display: 5.1 inch Quad HD (2560×1440) 577ppi, Super AMOLED
  • Processor: Quad 2.1GHz + Quad 1.5Ghz, Octacore Processor (Exynos 7240)
  • OS Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
  • Camera 16MP OIS(rear), 5MP (front)
  • Connectivity: WiFi: 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, Mobile hotspot, Bluetooth: v4.1
  • RAM: 3GB, LPDDR4
  • Internal Memory: 32/64/128GB, UFS 2.0
  • Wireless Charging: WPC1.1(4.6W Output) & PMA 1.0(4.2W) compatible
  • Dimensions (S6):143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm, 138g
  • Battery: 2,550mAh

Samsung Galaxy S6, WHAT’s new about it?

This is the first Galaxy S-series to feature a Quad HD screen and runs Android Lollipop with revamped TouchWiz UI, which is based on Material Design guidelines. The new TouchWiz UI is said to be lighter, better (64-bit) optimized, and sport a cleaner interface.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 also sports its own in-house processor- Exynos 7420, an octa-core processor with 64-bit ARM Cortex A57 cores clocked at 2.1GHz, and another four ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz.

The home button now has a  fingerprint sensor embedded in it and supports mobile payments with the help of NFC and MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission).’

WHAT’s the difference between S6 and S6 Edge?

While the Galaxy S6 is the successor of the Galaxy S5, the S6 Edge is kind of a experiment done from Samsung. The specs between them are strikingly similar, expect the Galaxy S6 has a curved display on both sides. Below are some notable specs of Galaxy S6 edge:

  • Display (S6 Edge): 5.1inch Quad HD(2560×1440) 577ppi, Super AMOLED, Dual edgo
  • Processor: Quad 2.1GHz + Quad 1.5Ghz, Octacore application processor
  • OS Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
  • Camera 16MP OIS(rear), 5MP (front)

  • Internal Memory: 32/64/128GB, UFS 2.0
