#MWC15: Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will take you into the New Galaxy of Shining Stars

Samsung has revealed their Giants Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in MWC15. The smartphone to beat in 2015 setting its level at par.  Forget everything you thought you knew about Samsung smartphones, because these new Galaxy S6 phones are different in every way imaginable.

Samsung’s new phones both feature 5.1-inch quad HD Super AMOLED displays (that’s a whopping 577 ppi), 64-bit octa-core Exynos processors, 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM, between 32GB and 128GB of internal storage, 16-megapixel rear cameras, 5-megapixel front-facing cameras and a complete reimagining of TouchWiz over Android Lollipop.

The difference between the two, as we saw in countless leaks and rumors, is the Galaxy S6 edge model features a display that curves down toward the back of the handset on both sides.

Samsung built the S6 and S6 edge entirely out of Gorilla Glass 4 and metal. The design is sleek and remarkably slender, especially considering all of the technology packed into these handsets. Beyond the specs listed above, the phone also includes a heart rate sensor, a touch fingerprint scanner (no more swiping), LoopPay and NFC mobile payments support, and wireless charging support.

Samsung has fitted a 16-megapixel sensor, which is the same resolution as that of the S5. However, there are several improvements, which should boost image quality. First, the lens has an f/1.9 aperture (up from f/2.2 on the S5), which lets in 34% more light. Next, real-time HDR is turned on by default, improving the dynamic range of images. Finally, Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) should reduce blur when taking low-light images. A double-click of the fingerprint sensor/home button now launches the camera app in less than 0.7ms; in other words, you'll never miss taking that perfect shot again.

At the right angle, it’s fairly clear that Samsung’s new phones took design elements from Apple’s iPhones. There are also plenty of original design elements to enjoy on these handsets, though.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge feature far better than others 

The quad HD Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy S6 edge is positively gorgeous. It’s exactly what we have come to expect from a Samsung display. The pixel density comes in at a shocking 577 ppi (unbeatable) and I’m not sure we’ll see a better screen on a smartphone all year.

The curved sides of the screen still provide a few additional functions that the standard S6’s display doesn’t support, but the separate pane we see on the Note Edge is gone. You can still use the sides as a night clock and they still support that embarrassingly awkward rub-to-wake gesture, but the rest of the features from the Note Edge are gone.

There is one cool new function to speak of, though. Sliding your finger inward from the edge of the screen on a specific point opens an overlay with your favorite contacts. Each of those contacts is also assigned a unique color, and when one of those contacts calls you while your phone is face down, the curved sides of the screen will glow with that contact’s color

If you miss any notifications from one of your key contacts, a colour tab appears on the side of the screen. All you have to do is swipe in from the tab to bring up the full details. It's a neat way to keep in touch with people, and feels far more integrated than the Note Edge's approach, which treated the side area of the screen as a completely separate display.

The new version of TouchWiz on the Galaxy S6 edge is a stark departure from last year’s version. Android Lollipop shines through much more clearly on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge than Android has on earlier phones, and Samsung said it reduced the number of features by 40% in its latest software. There are four colours to choose from: White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, and Green Emerald (Galaxy S6 Edge exclusive). My favourite is the green, but the other colours all have their own merits, so it's a matter of choosing which one you like the most.

Samsung has fitted a 2,600mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the 2,800mAh battery fitted in the S5. Don't worry that this will mean reduced battery life, as the 14nm processor and efficient OS should, according to Samsung, mean more battery life. Again, we'll have to wait until we have a review sample before we can test exactly how long the S6 Edge lasts.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will launch in April 10 in the U.S., and it will be available from Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular, as well as from popular retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon.
[Update]: Samsung sources hinted us that the two new entrants will go on sale in India on 10th April. Samsung go on sale in India starting April 10th meanwhile pricing is expected to be around Rs. 52,999 for the S6, while its curved Edge counterpart will likely get a price tag of Rs.61,999.
