The glass-and-metal Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a 64-bit Octa-core processor, rear 16-megapixel and front 5-megapixel cameras, and wireless charging capabilities, according to Samsung. Samsung released the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in early 2015.
The official Samsung website includes photos of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge along with lists of features, technical specifications, reviews, videos of the phone's features and a way to order online. Both models feature a glass encasement, but the S6 display does not stretch to its rims, as does that of the S6 edge.
One novelty of these smartphones is that the S6 and S6 edge batteries are nonremovable. Unlike previous versions of the phone, Samsung claims that cutting-edge, wireless, fast-charge capabilities give the phone four hours of battery life after only 10 minutes of charging. Samsung also advertises advancements in its front and rear cameras, which feature improved clarity and a launch time of less than one second.
The Galaxy 6S has met with positive reviews from tech websites. A pull quote on Samsung's website by news and reviews site Mashable hails the Galaxy S6 as the most advanced smartphone made to date, while CNET lauds its sleek looks, improved finger reader and beautiful software design using the Android 5.0 platform.
