The much awaited Samsung Galaxy S6 has been released with its Edge variant, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with dual curves at MWC 2015. There were a lot of rumors, leaks and speculations about the Galaxy S6 but finally it is in our hands and we are going to show you how does it looks like, what are you going to like and dislike.
Samsung Galaxy S6: What is New ?
The Metallic Body with glass
The new Samsung Galaxy S6 is not completely made of aluminum but it’s a mix of metal and glass. The Gorilla Glass 4 makes the design much better than the predecessors and you will like the blend of metal and glass.
The Thinner the better
While Apple introduced Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with the slogan of ‘Bigger than Bigger’, the latest flagship device of Samsung is very slim and thinner as compared to its predecessors. You will feel it delicate when 6.8 mm or 0.27 inch Samsung Galaxy S6 is in your hands.
The Camera with OIS
The HTC One M9, which was launched only couple of hours earlier, has 20 MP camera at back but without OIS and this truly disappointed the HTC fans but this is not the case with Samsung Galaxy S6. The new Galaxy Series phone is equipped with 16 MP camera and OIS support. OIS results in better images and videos in low light and deliver smooth videos and photos without hand-shakes and blur problems.
On the other hand, you will get improvement in the front camera as well. While Galaxy S5 had a 2.1MP front camera, the new Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with 5MP camera with f/1.9 lens. If you are a selfie lover, then you will become the Galaxy S6 fan sooner.
64-bit Exynos processor
As it was confirmed already, Samsung ditched the Qualcomm Snapdragon for its upcoming Galaxy S series phones and is using 14 nm Exynos octa-core 64-bit processor. Samsung claims its home-made processor will support the Android latest OS along with hardware as well.

The biggest surprise of the launch event was Wireless Charging. Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will support Wireless charging. We will tell you more details on this later. With this Samsung also claimed the normal charging process is much faster now and you will get the 4 hours usage with just 10 minutes charging.
