Samsung's Galaxy S6 Smartphones Get Points for Style, Performance

The latest Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphones just launched at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, Spain, as Samsung works to raise its game in its fight against Apple's latest and very successful iPhone 6 devices for domination around the globe. The two new Galaxy S6 handsets are impressive, with significant improvements in style, design, components and features compared with earlier Galaxy models, based on some hands-on looks that eWEEK shared at a special pre-MWC event recently in New York City. The new phones, a standard Galaxy S6 and a much flashier and more sculptured Galaxy S6 Edge that features a bright display which wraps around both sides of the handset, both include a new metal chassis; a 5.1-inch, quad HD Super AMOLED display; and strong Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on both the front display and rear panel of the phones. Both new Galaxy S6 models also include Samsung's latest 14nm technology, 64-bit Exynos 7 processors, which have eight cores and use less power while providing higher performance. Prices have not yet been announced. Check out this eWEEK slide show for a closer look.
