The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are now official with their metal casing

The design of the new model is substantially different from what has been known so far. For example, the side volume buttons are now two, so the one that had always been usual in Samsung terminals is part. Yes, what they are not abandoned are the touch screens on the front, in order to control the operating system.

By the way the Home button is now much larger than in previous models, which is due to the inclusion of the fingerprint reader here and, seeking better performance, the dimensions have been increased so that efficiency and comfort are greater. Oh, and the sensors on the back, like the biometric, are next to the camera, not underneath as before. Finally, the glass finish is presented and, like the device screen, includes protection Gorilla Glass 4. This may prevent breakage problems that are found in other models.

The screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 is finally 5.1 inches and its resolution amounts to QHD (2,560 x 1,440) with a SuperAMOLED type panel.In this way, it also gives a qualitative leap in terms of its resolution and it has nothing to envy the LG G3 or the Galaxy Note 4 -the screen density reaches 577 dpi). Therefore, important progress is made here. By the way, the measurements of the device taking into account the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 are not bad, since they are at 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm in the terminal without curved screen and at 142, 1 x 7.1 x 7 mm in which it does have it (the weight is 138 and 132 grams respectively).

Processor and memory

Regarding the processor, the change of supplier is confirmed and, now, it is Samsung itself that is responsible for manufacturing the SoC of the new phone. The choice is a Eight-core Exynos Model 7420 -14 nanometer manufacturing technology- compatible with 64-bit architecture of which some benchmarks have already been seen and, the truth is that it has little or nothing to envy to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810. By the way, it has eight “cores” that use big.LITTLE technology in its two pairs of four cores that work at 2.1 and 1.45 GHz .. As for the GPU, this is a Mali-T760.

The RAM of the Samsung Galaxy S6 stays in 3 GBWhich is not bad but some might expect the four “gigs”. It is a bit lacking for such an amount of memory to be common even in high-end models. As for storage, this is located at 32, 64 or 128 GB. Another detail to assess is that the connectivity is resolved with LTE Cat. 6.

Camera and other hardware details

The main camera of the Samsung Galaxy S6 is confirmed to be 16 megapixels (which is quite prominent, everything must be said) with an image stabilizer, so it matches in resolution what models like Sony’s Xperia offer -the front reaches 5 Mpx, enough to get quality selfies-. Besides, it must be said that the battery of the new phone stays in the 2,550 mAh in the “traditional” model and in the 2,600 mAh on the Edge and you don’t have access to it since the device is “unibody” type. This load is mainly due to the reduced thickness of the phone.

It must also be said that wireless recharging compatible with the Qi and PMA standards. In addition, its USB port is up to 1.5x faster than in previous models (this is the case even when charging). In addition, a single higher quality front speaker is included (for example, with the bass). Also NFC to make payments is from the game.

By the way, a certain toll had to be paid for the new design, since that any resistance has been lost, there is no option to increase the internal storage using microSD cards and, finally, as we have said, it is not possible to change the battery as the back cover is no longer removed.

software

The Samsung Galaxy S6 operating system is Android Lollipop how could it be otherwise and, perhaps, that TouchWiz now less demanding allows updates to new versions of Google to arrive more quickly. TocuhWiz is maintained, but with much less presence of bloatware, something that will affect the operation of the terminal and that we will really see when we see the new device.

With the Samsung Galaxy S6 some interesting functionalities are included to comment. For example, you access the payment system called Samsung Pay; to different Microsoft applications (with a space in the cloud in OneDrive of 115 GB for two years); Samsung Health 4.0; and features such as Download Booster or Ultra Saving Mode are still present.

Arrival at the market

The arrival on the market of these phones has been indicated that it will take place in the month of April (on the 10th specifically), and the price has not advanced anything in this regard for the moment. We will see if with the bet of the Samsung Galaxy S6 the Korean company pick up the pulse to the market with a model that arrives in white, black, gold and green.
