New Samsung phones have 50% stronger metal than any other phone and the toughest screens
In its relatively short life, the smartphone has been seen in a range of guises, with each design offering enhanced usability and improved functions. Fast-forward to 2015 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge take smartphone design to the next level, creating a new standard for craftsmanship and performance in the industry.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are the result of years of research, development and product testing, in keeping with Samsung’s innovation-focused design philosophy. Every vital design aspect – from shape and materials to user experience and content – was considered from an entirely new perspective that focused on premium device aesthetic as well as usability and function. The unique fusion of metal and glass in both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge has given an exceptional finished result and created beauty never imagined before for a smartphone. Combining these materials to create timeless pieces was a significant challenge, requiring R&D to seamlessly provide advanced technology in a thin and beautiful – yet strong – device.
The metal used for the smartphones (6013 aluminum to be precise) is a material usually found in aircraft fuselages, mountain bikes or yachts and is 50 percent stronger than any metal previously used in the smartphone market.
Exuding sophistication, the glass body of the device is made from the toughest glass to date, Corning® Gorilla Glass® 4. The Galaxy S6 edge takes things even further with a unique double-edged screen produced with temperatures as high as 800-degree Celsius.
Among the many innovations in the new Galaxy line is its dazzling array of colorful jewel tones, including White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz and Green Emerald. Every detail comes together to make these devices deep and solid, but also slim to hold and easy to use, bringing together many elements of design in harmony.
Making the impossible, possible, Samsung has used industry-leading technology in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. These lightweight smartphones integrate the most advanced, cutting-edge, Samsung core technology available today arming them with serious power credentials. The world’s first 14nm mobile processor with 64-bit platform, new LPDDR4 memory system and UFS 2.0 flash memory provides higher performance and enhanced memory speed with lower power consumption.
In another first, the 1440P/VP9 hardware-based decoder enables users to enjoy high resolution streaming video while also using less power. Meanwhile, the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen offers users the highest pixel density of 577ppi to integrate 77 percent more pixels into the Galaxy S6 than the Galaxy S5, which makes for crystal-clear viewing. If that wasn’t enough, enhanced outdoor visibility with a brighter display (600cd/mm) lets consumers experience content without compromise – anywhere, at any time.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are elegant and powerful devices that perfectly capture Samsung’s passion for technology and design. By combining cutting-edge design and style with industry leading power, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are giving users a first-of-its-kind opportunity to experience the future, today.
