With a crisp 5.1-inch 577 pixels per inch quad high definition display that curves on both edges of the phone, a metallic rim that gives the handset a solid feel, and gorilla glass 4 to protect it from accidental scratches, the S6 Edge, available in beautiful colour options, is one good-looker of a smartphone.
The curved edge displays a watch which can act as your bedside timepiece, and there is a light signal for incoming calls or messages. You can also customise the colour of the signal to your contacts.
The Galaxy S6 Edge runs on an octa core 64 bit processor from Samsung, with LPDD4 memory to ensure it delivers speed and high performance. With its integrated 1440P/VP9 hardware- based codec, the processor ensures that you enjoy high resolution video streaming at minimal power consumption.
This smartphone can be recharged with any wireless charging pad that supports WPC and PMA standards. The wired charging in the S6 Edge is very effective; it charges 1.5 times faster than its previous avatar, and with a 10-minute recharge you get about four hours of battery use.
With an aperture of f/1.9 both on its front and rear cameras, the phone’s cameras work wonderfully in low-light situations. The rear camera features a 16 MP sensor, while the front has a 5 MP one. Features such as ‘auto real-time high dynamic range’, ‘smart optical image stabilisation’ and ‘IR detect white balance’ provide advanced light sensitivities and crisp results.
The Galaxy S6 Edge is available in 32 GB, 64GB and a 128 GB variants. It runs on the upgraded Samsung Knox secure mobile platform, ensuring suitability for corporate use too.
