If that video did not get you hyped enough, its time to grip to the edge of your seats for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has finally been launched. Officiating its release in Barcelona, Spain, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy 6 edge is a seamlessly blend of premium materials with the most advanced Samsung technology to offer consumers an unmatched mobile experience.
|The New Launch from Samsung|
"With the all new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung is offering what's next in mobility, along with a new standard to drive the global mobile agenda. With a re-imagined design, robust partner network and novel services, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge offers users the ultimate experience in smartphone options." said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics."
Equipped with an incredibly vivid, bright and fast front and rear camera, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge have F1.9 lenses and high resolution sensors on both front (5MP) and rear (16MP) cameras that provide the most superior image quality in a smartphone, even in the dark.

Though what was most intriguing about the two Samsung phones though was the new "Quick Launch" feature that give its users fast, direct access to the camera from any screen in just 0.7 seconds by simply double clicking the home key button. These advanced camera functions enable users to capture their most precious and personal moments in uncompromising quality, however and whenever they want.
However what made the crowd cheer in applause was the fully embedded WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology that sports incredibly fast wired charging for up to 1.5 times faster than its predecessor; the Galaxy S5, providing about 4 hours of usage after only 10 minutes of charging time. Now you'd have to admit, that is pretty amazing.
Samsung has also included an easy and protected mobile payment called the Samsung Pay which will be compatible with more locations than any competing offering in a single application. This will launch on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the United States during the second half of 2015.
Now although this may rise a little concern, rest assured that all data will be protected by the upgraded Samsung KNOX, which is a secure mobile platform offering defense-grade features for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is pretty light and thin with a built in battery too and upgrades to DDR4 RAM that brings ultra-fast storage as well.
