Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge conquer metal and glassPrepare yourself for Samsung's most premium flagship phones yet. For the phone maker, they're anything but typical.
[MUSIC] Samsung has not one but two new flagship phones for 2015. This is the Samsung Galaxy S6 and we got the Curved Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNet and I'm gonna take you on a little tour of these brand new devices. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge represents a completely different design for Samsung. The plastic is long gone and we've got glass on the back and a metal frame around the edges. That is Gorilla glass 4 by the way. The phones are really slim, light, very sleek. That's because they have an embedded design. You won't be able to pull your battery out, theres' also no micro sd card, but there is 3 levels of storage. To satisfy your needs there. 32 gigabytes, 64 gigabytes and 128 gigabytes. It has the same size screen as last year. It's 5.1 inch amala display. But this time the resolution gets bumped way up to 2560 by 1440 P. For those of you who count pixel density of 577 PPI. That means you're gonna get ultra crisp videos and images when you're playing games, watching a movie or. [UNKNOWN] at pictures. Samsung is going with its own 64 bit [UNKNOWN] Core processor of its Xenis line. Both models of the phone have a 16 megapixel camera on the back and a 5 megapixel camera on the front. There's an auto HCR improved low light and optical image stabilization. There's also a really great feature to float the camera from any screen you're on really quickly. You just double click that Home key, if you want the camera in under a second. Samsung has done a lot of work regarding charging of the battery for both of these phones. There's wireless charging for both [UNKNOWN] built into the back of the phone. Now the S6 and S6 Edge come in four different colors each. You can get either phone in sapphire, black, white pearl or platinum gold. The S6 also comes in topaz blue, and the Edge comes in emerald green. Carriers will announce their own prices. And we don't have a launch date, but we do know that both phones will be available in Q2. I'm Jessica [INAUDIBLE] for CNet.
