A Reimagined Design, Inside and Out
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is powerful to use and beautiful to behold. The slim and lightweight all-metal body and glass design make a bold statement, while the lightning-fast Samsung Exynos®
7420 Octa-core 64-bit processor delivers the most power and speed we’ve ever put in a smartphone.
Samsung put the imagination that makes their HDTVs amazing into the palm of your hand. The 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED®
display shows everything brighter, clearer and more captivating on-screen, and even automatically adjusts to all light conditions.
Our Best Smartphone Camera
The Galaxy S6 powers your selfies with a 5MP front-facing camera and a wide-angle lens, allowing you to capture more of the background and all of your friends. And if you double-tap the home key, it quick launches from any screen. The ultra-responsive 16MP rear-facing camera with built-in Optical Image Stabilization and Auto HDR will help you take great shots anywhere, every time.
Pay Almost Anywhere You Can Swipe or Tap Your Card††
Introducing Samsung Pay, the mobile payment service that works virtually anywhere you can swipe your card — from local grocery stores to corner coffee shops to your favorite department store. It’s also highly secure and simple to use with your Galaxy S6. Only compatible with select cards from participating banks/issuers, participating carriers and certain Samsung devices; check the Samsung Pay
page for a compatibility list.
Fast Charging and Power Saving
Equipped with a 2550 mAh Fast Charging battery, Samsung’s exclusive Ultra Power Saving Mode and built-in wireless charging capabilities, the Galaxy S6 keeps you connected to the things you love. With fast charging, your battery goes from zero to up to 50% in about 30 minutes. And in Ultra Power Saving Mode, at only 10% power, you’ll still get calls and texts for up to 24 hours.*
