Samsung has announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 EDGE

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Samsung just announced their new flagship duo the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Judging by the number of leaks the last couple of days it seems that Samsung has managed to build up the kind of buzz they was hoping for.

Now for the good part, Here are the highlights from today’s announcements so far.

First of all let us just start by saying that these phone looks like a million dollars. One of the first pieces of information we were given was that the phones is in fact covered in Gorilla glass 4. It remains to se but Samsung went on to say that the devices are INSANELY responsive.

They both come with built in wireless charging, no need to buy a special back panel to get it up and running.

Samsung has obviously put a lot of thought into the camera as well. If the images we saw at the announcement has any foot in reality you can forget about those dark mobile fotos.

Like the S6 the S6 EDGE looks really impressive, in fact it looks even better. Much thanks display that bends two edges of the phone. The S6 EDGE also comes with built in wireless charging, no need to buy a special back panel to get it charged.

Mobile payment may really get a foothold once these phones starts trickling into the corners of the world. Samsung has devised a system that works on all payment terminals from day one. So if you get one of these and set up the mobile payment you are going to be able to use it anywhere a regular credit or debit card would work. Impressive.

The duo of phones will hit stores on april 10th in 20 select countries, no word as of yet which countries will get it and which won’t.

  1. Say i wanted to root the phone or jail break it then could i update it too? Sprint has me locked out. I only get wifi and in some spots that’s a pain. I want to hook up my Obama government phone number some how and get free texting and 500 minutes and 1 gig of web free. Is it possible? I am not computer Elite rate so walk me through

  2. Thank you for your help. I have the galaxy 6 and I love it. My girlfriend has the note 4. They are both locked to sprint. They are also turned off. Any ideas what either of us can do? If i wanted to unlock the note and put my own number on it , can i do that?
