Following months of rumors and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are now official.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge feature designs that the company says are “entirely redefined.” It’s been known for having plastic-y hardware in the past, but Samsung is looking to change things up with its new flagships. Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge have Gorilla Glass 4 on either side of their bodies as well as metal outer edges.
In terms of straight-up specs, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge have 5.1-inch 2560×1440 displays, octa-core Exynos processors, 3GB of RAM, and 32/64/128GB of storage. Unfortunately for microSD lovers, it appears that Samsung has opted not to include a memory card slot in its new flagships.
Both new phones have 16-megapixel rear cameras with optical image stabilization and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Diving back inside the phone, we find NFC and MST technologies for Samsung Pay mobile payments, Qi and PMA wireless charging, fast-charge technology, and IR blasters. One spec that is different between the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is battery capacity: the Galaxy S6’s is 2550mAh, while the Galaxy S6 edge’s is 2600mAh.
Samsung says that both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will begin rolling out on April 10, and both models are expected to launch at T-Mobile. The Galaxy S6 will be released in White Peal, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, and Blue Topaz color options, while the Galaxy S6 edge will be available in Green Emerald as well.
