The second of our big Android smartphone announcements just kicked off this fine Sunday morning. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge were officially unveiled, and Samsung put on quite an impressive show. Sammy's flagship is officially outed now, and Samsung fans have something new to be excited about.
Will the Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge be a hit? Here at HQ we are actually quite impressed with the Galaxy S6 Edge, but aren't sure what to think about the regular Galaxy S6. Its aesthetic design isn't much different from the past (except for the back), and it has given up many of the features that fans of the Galaxy series appreciated (like a removable battery and a microSD slot).
Still, to reiterate, the Galaxy S6 Edge does push the envelope on both a technological and an aesthetic level. It's a truly beautiful smartphone and could really surprise this year. Also, Samsung's Exynos 7420 (industry first and only 14nm chip) brings some impressive specs to the table, and really evolves the internal hardware to a new level. The phone also has the fastest quick charging battery in the industry and has built-in wireless charging. The camera includes the world's first real-time HDR lighting in a smartphone for fantastic pics and video.
The phone will initially come in white, black, gold, & blue-green and will be available on April 10th.
