The wait is over. Galaxy S6 was launched at the Mobile World Congress Conference 2015, and it looks quite special. It’s accompanied by the Galaxy S6 Edge: a curved screen variation of the phone. Below you will find a few specs:
Samsung Galaxy S6 screen: Samsung has stuck with the outstanding Super AMOLED displays we’ve seen from the company for quite a while on the Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S6 comes with a 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD resolution.
Camera: Samsung has made the camera a key feature on this new phone, and has stuck a 16MP sensor on there.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 have identical snappers, with the South Korean brand looking to keep them as similar as possible – it’s just the screen that’s the differentiator.
Samsung Galaxy S6 power: Android Lollipop is here for a selection of different handsets and it brings with it 64-bit support which we see on the Galaxy S6.
According to CNET, Samsung hasn’t opted for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, preferring its own engine – likely based on its Exynos technology although it’s not confirmed that just yet (although they did tell us that it will be 64-bit enabled).
Other features: There are a few things that we knew Samsung would include. Samsung has been putting its fingerprint scanner on a number of phones and tablets so we’re not surprised to see in the S6 too. However, it’s a touch-based variant, rather than the erratic swiping model, making it more in line with Apple’s Touch ID than the S5’s swipe-style reader. The Galaxy S6 also keeps the heart rate monitor from the Galaxy S5, since that’s also been included on the Galaxy Alpha and Note 4, although it’s moved to the right of the camera sensor. The new Galaxy S6 models set some of their own Android trends. Both deliver built-in wireless charging support and compatibility with a new version of the Gear VR virtual reality accessory — two features you won’t find on the iPhone.
