Samsung has raised the bar with the all new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge with an all-new design.

Samsung has, once again, taken the lead by introducing the class-leading Galaxy S 6 and S6 Edge at the MWC 2015. Earlier today, HTC announced the M9, and it seems that Samsung has taken that seriously. Starting from the design, Samsung has raised the bar with an all-new design with Gorilla Glass 4 and metal body. The South Korean Giant has always been criticized for its plastic phones, but now things have changed and Samsung is back with a more premium construction for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Samsung has also raised the bar when it comes to the display, with the Quad HD Super AMOLED display with the 577ppi, which is even better than the Note 4, which is just amazing. The home key also acts as the fingerprint sensor and is larger than the Note 4 and Galaxy S5. Samsung is ready to take on Apple Pay with its Samsung Pay feature, which uses NFC and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) for mobile payments, and this fingerprint sensor will play an important part integrating it.

Talking about the processor, we already knew Samsung has skipped the Snapdragon 810 processor for their home-baked Exynos 7420 chip and Mali-T760 GPU bundled with 3Gb of RAM. Not to forget that the HTC One M9 uses Snapdragon 810 with 3GB of RAM. The battery on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is non-replaceable which is not a norm for Samsung phones. Many users will be disappointed about this, but Samsung has introduced Fast Charging feature and claims that 10 minutes of charge will give you enough juice to use your phone for 4 hours which is great. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge also comes with the wireless charging out of box to compensate for the non-removable battery. The Galaxy S6 is powered by a 2,550 mAh battery while the S6 Edge has a 2,600 mAh battery.

Coming to the Camera, it's a 16 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus supporting 4K video along with a 5MP front facing camera. Samsung claims it to be much better than the class leading iPhone 6 Plus camera and compared some pictures and videos shot from the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy S6. Clearly Galaxy S6 took the lead with better low light pictures and videos. Samsung has also improved the software experience by removing bloatware from the Touch Wiz and claims lag-free user experience.

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be running on Android 5.0 Lollipop and will come in Black Sapphire, White Pearl, Gold Platinum, Green Emerald color options. It will be available in 20 countries on April 10 with the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options. The price is yet to be revealed.
