Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are Android smartphones manufactured and marketed by Samsung Electronics. The S6 and S6 Edge jointly serve as successors to the Galaxy S5. The smartphones were officially unveiled in a press conference at Mobile World Congress on 1 March 2015. Alongside the S6, Samsung also unveiled the S6 Edge, a variant whose screen is wrapped along the sides of the device; the curvature is usable for several additional features. The Galaxy S6 was released on 10 April 2015.
The Galaxy S6 line retains similarities in design to previous models, but now uses a unibody frame made of aluminium alloy 6013 with a glass backing, a curved bezel with chamfered sides to improve grip, and the speaker grille was moved to the bottom. The devices are available in "White Pearl", "Black Sapphire", and "Gold Platinum" color finishes; additional " Blue Topaz" and "Emerald Green" finishes are exclusive to the S6 and S6 Edge respectively. The S6 carries some regressions in its design over the S5; it is no longer waterproof, does not contain a MicroSD card slot, reverts to a USB 2.0 port from USB 3.0, and has a non-removable battery.
The Galaxy S6 line is powered by a 64-bit Exynos 7 Octa 7420 system-on-chip, consisting of four 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 cores, and four 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 cores, and 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The processor is Samsung's first to use a 14 nm FinFET manufacturing process, which the company stated would improve its energy efficiency. It will be available with 32, 64, or 128 GB of non-expandable storage, implementing Universal Flash Storage 2.0 standards. Both devices feature a 5.1-inch 1440p Super AMOLED display; similarly to theGalaxy Note Edge, the S6 Edge's display is slightly curved around the horizontal sides of the device, although not as aggressively as the Note Edge.
