Samsung presents the Galaxy S6 smartphone
The widely discussed Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone is here now – Samsung has officially presented the device at the on-going MWC 2015, along with its sibling – the curved S6 Edge smartphone.
We know that you are most interested in the hardware specs so we will list them right here – the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display at 2560 x 1440 pixels (Quad HD) and the impressive 577 ppi. Inside the new communicator comes with an eight-core 64-bit Exynos processor – four cores run at 2.1 GHz and are designed for demanding apps, while the remaining four cores run at 1.5 GHz and can handle simpler software. The device has the impressive 3 GB of LPDDR4 memory and 32/64/128 GB of UFS 2.0 internal memory, depending on the version chosen. The main camera of the S6 is a 16 MP unit, while the front one comes at 5 MP. The rear camera also has some nice features – it features optical image stabilization, improved image quality in low light conditions, autofocus and more. The smartphone also supports LTE and has Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, ANT+, apt-X, LE and various sensors. The Galaxy S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm and weighs 138 grams. Not surprisingly the Samsung Galaxy S6 flagship runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. A 2550 mAh non-removable battery powers the smartphone. The smartphone seems to lack a microSD card slot so this is something that needs to be taken into account if you plan to get an S6 smartphone.
The Galaxy S6 Edge has the same hardware as the regular S6 except for a few things – the S6 Edge comes with a curved display (obviously), measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7 mm, weighs 132 grams and sports a non-removable 2600 mAh battery.
Pricing has not been announced so we will stick to what we know – the Galaxy S6 will sell for EUR 749 (32 GB), EUR 849 (64 GB) and EUR 949 (128 GB), respectively, while the S6 Edge will be available in 64 GB and 128 GB capacities that will sell for EUR 949 and EUR 1049, accordingly.
