With the sales slump of the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung has gone back to the drawing board and built the new Samsung Galaxy S6. Unveiled this week at the MWC 2015, the new handset is a complete reworking of the popular Samsung flagship phone, dramatically boosting its specs and improving the build quality.
Samsung Galaxy S6 processor, memory, display, hardware, new features
With the Galaxy S6 Samsung has finally responded to plastic build quality criticism, and the new Samsung Galaxy S6 looks great. It’s built from metal and glass, with Gorilla Glass protecting both front and back, and features a gorgeous 5.1in Quad HD (2560×1440, 577ppi) Super AMOLED display – with the smaller screen, that’s higher than that seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The super-thin Samsung Galaxy S6 is just 6.8mm thick (143.4×70.5×6.8mm) and weighs a tiny 138g. It will come in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, and Blue Topaz.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 also has wireless charging built in (supporting both PMA and WPC), meaning no more fumbling in the dark for power cables, although the trade-off is a non-removable 2550mAh battery. But you’ll get enough power for four hours use in just 10 minutes of charging, and it’ll charge from zero to 100 percent in half the time of the iPhone.
