Samsung Galaxy S6 News, Price and Specs

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge - front view

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the Korean company’s flagship handset for 2015. The disappointing sales of the Galaxy S5 and its declining market share led Samsung to redesign its 2015 flagship from top to bottom. The Galaxy S6 is the first high-end flagship device from the company to feature a premium design with an all-glass design which is sandwiched by an aluminium mid-frame.

As for the specs, the Galaxy S6 comes with a beautiful 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32/64/128GB of speedy UFS 2.0 based internal storage, and a 2,550mAh battery. The phone also comes with a superb 16MP rear shooter with an F1/.9 aperture, which when coupled with Samsung’s new camera app, is able to rival the iPhone 6 in terms of camera performance.
