Samsung recently announced two new Galaxy S6 smartphones Sunday at the Mobile World Congress industry exhibition held in Barcelona, Spain. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the company’s newest from its popular line of Android phones while the Galaxy S6 Edge features a curved screen not unlike the one seen on the Galaxy Note Edge phablet. Both phones will be on sale April 10 and will have 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage options, but no 16GB offerings.
Both the S6 and S6 Edge have 5.1-inch screens, which will make its screen size fall in between the iPhone 6 (4.7 inches) and iPhone 6 Plus (5.5 inches). The S6 Edge weighs slightly less too, but the main difference between both devices is the curved screen, which helps in providing at-a-glance notification. Some of its other features is that you can assign colors to contacts – for example, color red can be assigned to calls from your boss, and the phone will emanate a visible red light from the curved part of the screen when the phone is faced down.
When Apple launched iPhone 6 last fall, the company weathered some bad press reviews when a video surfaced showing the device bending during a stress test. Samsung’s Younghee Lee, executive vice president of the company’s mobile division, leveraged on this opportunity for a jab during a recent press event.
“This stuff will not bend,” Lee said
Although iPhones might bend, but they sure don’t curve like the new Samsung! Watch out for these new mobile devices.
