Samsung Officially Announces the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge

34

Samsung just announced their new additions to the Galaxy line, and frankly they look kind of amazing. I’ve been a bit of a hater towards Samsung in the past due to them essentially releasing the same device since the Galaxy S3, but it seems that the S6 is a pretty new take on a style that was.. alright. The new devices feature lots of metal and lots of glass, in a form that seems to scream premium, while at the same time feeling fully functional. The new Galaxy S6 Edge features a curved display on both edges of the phone which have a few practical uses, but so far mostly gimmicky ones. For bezel-freaks, though, the S6 is essentially bezel-free, so we’ll see if Samsung threw something that will stick, like they did when they first introduced the Galaxy Note series. Also worth mentioning is the fact that Samsung are using their own processors this time around, which seem to offer quite a premium experience, especially since Samsung decided to do away with almost all of it’s bloatware on the device. Anyways, enough rambling. Check out the official specs below. Are you picking up either of these phones? Let us know.
