The revolution of design: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
By Samsung, 08.03.2015.
The new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge mark a major milestone in Samsung’s design history. With a premium design and polished finish, the smartphones are a powerful blend of superior style, sophistication and elegance.
Inspired by the works of glass blowers and artisan metalsmiths, the flagship devices are a fusion of premium metal and glass. Just as an artist spends days in perfecting his or her craft, the designers behind the S6 and S6 edge invested countless hours, effort and innovative thinking to develop these masterpieces. The fine metal and glass exterior on both sides features a solid and sleek look with a matte-finish, while offering a smooth, palm-friendly grip. The metal elements are 50 per cent stronger than that used in other smartphones.
The screens of the S6 and S6 edge have been carefully crafted with Gorilla® Glass 4, with a thin optical film layer embedded under the glass to create a beautiful reflection of light and a wide spectrum of colours from different angles. The 5.1" Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED adaptive display delivers stunning clarity and an optimal viewing experience, while delivering crisp visuals in both indoor and outdoor conditions. Samsung has integrated 77 per cent more pixels into the Galaxy S6 than its predecessor, S5.
Beyond the edge of possibilities
The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge features the world's first dual-edge design and offers a seamless experience to users – following the footsteps of the Galaxy Note Edge, which featured a curved display on the right side. The two fluid curved edges of the S6 edge took several years to develop, involving applications of 800 degree Celsius to curve the glass.
In addition to augmenting the visual appeal, the edges complement the functionality of the phone. Users can take advantage of enhanced connectivity with the option of listing up to five favourite, colour-coded contacts on the edge display to call, text or email them in an instant.
Layer of convenience
With a thickness of only 6.8mm (7mm for S6 edge), the device easily slides into the pocket and does not feel bulky when being carried around in one's hand. The speakers are conveniently located at the bottom of the smartphone for clear sound when it is stationed on a surface.
The front-facing camera has been upgraded from 2MP in the Galaxy S5 to 5MP in the S6. Positioned above the screen, it complements the 16MP rear camera for spontaneous, high-quality selfie needs.
Array of options
The smartphones come in a fabulous selection of colours to suit different tastes. The S6 will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Blue Topaz, while the S6 edge will offer options such as White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Green Emerald.
With a futuristic design, and the combination of dynamic beauty and purposeful power, the revolutionary Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge clearly demonstrate that the 'Next Is Now'.
