Samsung as planned it changed its design strategy from the Note 4, Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S comes in two aroma with parcels to like. The smartphones check a really sharp takeoff in hardwares from the Galaxy S5, with full metal casings, glass back cover and redefined features.

Samsung fabricated the S6 and S6 edge from the beginning with some new thoughts, concentrating on a high luxury feel for the handset in beautiful colors and new features such as a extruded out camera, wireless charging and on account of the S6 edge a couple of novel software features added.

The specs for the new smartphones is typically the same, with a couple of unforeseen components threw in. Controlling both handsets is a 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor with a 14nm based, which replaces the Qualcomm chip found in many emphases of past devices. The processor is powered with a 2550mAh battery (on edge 2600mAh), 3GB of RAM and a internal storage of 32GB, 64 and 128GB options being accessible imperatively in light of the fact that there’s no SDcard space accessible.

Both the S6 and S6 edge comes with a new 16MP camera with OIS, collaborating with new IR white balance, fast tracking autofocus and the capacity to launch camera app in under a second with two presses of the home button.
On the front Samsung has brought its most recent Super AMOLED screen innovative idea to both devices with a 5.1-inch QHD showcase 2560×1440, prompting 577 ppi, the same size yet higher resolution than the GS5. A new type of fingerprint scanner installed in the taller home button, which requires only a tap of your finger to verify as opposed to a swipe.

As the software is concerned the smartphone runs in Android 5.0.2 and a well known but somewhat conditioned down version of TouchWiz that reduces a percentage of the pointless things yet at the same time incorporates a lot of Samsung’s features like Multi Window, with services like Milk Music and the Galaxy Apps store.
