Samsung has finally held their Blogathon fro the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Well, the things are happening quite fast these a days because a few weeks back, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge were launched in Mobile World Congress and from Spain, these guys have flied to India. First of all, we should go back and take a glance at the previous Galaxy S series devices. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and S4 were disappointing for both consumers and the Korean tech giant here in India. So, they have done their homework this time to attract their consumers again with the new design and new features.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display which offers a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The key thing about this display is that it is a curved display and both the sides are curved. The Korean tech giant has also explained that it too around 800ºC to craft this design. Firstly, they thought that t is not going to be possible but they did it. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge reminds us about the Note 4 Edge which was having one curved side, but now with the S6 Edge you get two. The device is quite strong as this guy is not going to bend and it has also passed the drop test. Also, it is a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 display which is protection your inner touchscreen.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is also seeing a complete redesign just like the Samsung Galaxy S6. The swiping fingerprint scanner has been removed and now, the company has introduced the switch based finger print scanner which we have already seen on the Apple iPhone 6. The dual curved edges are going to provide you more holding grip and now, we can assure you that it is not going to slip away from your hand. Also, it is very slim as the curved displays are there. The SIM card tray has been moved upto the top and it is just the design change which we have seen.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a 16-Megapixel AutoFocus camera which is capable of shooting 4K HD videos and the camera also supports variety of modes. Also, on the front of this device there is a 5-Megapixel camera present which is the first front facing camera of the world providing the capability of real time auto HDR.
The image above shows the variety of modes included by the Korean tech giant in this smartphone. The Auto Mode is there along with Pro, Selective Focus, Panaroma, Slow Motion, Fast Motion, Virtual Shot and this is not the end you can download many more modes too.
The slow motion videos made by this device are fantastic. The handset is also having a new feature which allows you to take instant images. You have to double tap the menu button and you are done. The camera will open in 0.7 seconds and you can take an image at that very moment.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is running on the Android Lollipop operating system which is the latest one from Google and we do think that it is going to get more updates in the future. The device comes with the Knox security features and these features are going to keep your handset very secure. The handset comes with the connectivity features like 4G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB port and a 3,5mm AV jack as well. Also, the handset is capable of wireless charging. the company has included the Samsung Pay with this device. It is running on the Android Lollipop operating system and it will receive the future software updates as well. It is quite light.
Also, the metal body is providing some premium feeling and the corners of this handset have also been chamfered. The device is also coming with a 2600mAh battery which is going to give you a good battery life. Also, the company has revealed that with 10 minutes of charge you will be able to use your device for 4 hours. The company also said that the device is going to be long lasting.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a sliding feature. This feature can include 5 of your most important contacts. So, you can give them a certain color and when the device is kept downside you can know from the color that who has called you or texted you without even lifting up the handset. The things which we have seen changed on this device is that the battery is not removable now and also, you can now see the speakers grills at the bottom. The heart rate sensor is back again and it has been improved too.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is made available in 3 different storage options. The company has finally removed the 16GB storage model. So the handset is now available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB with a price tag of Rs. 58,900/-. Rs. 64,900 and Rs. 70,900. It will be available in markets on April, 10th. Overall, the phone is quite good and it is going to beat many smartphones in the price range. So, the first impressions of the device were good.
