After months of rumors and speculation, Samsung has finally taken the wraps off of the highly anticipated Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. While the two flagship smartphones have virtually identical hardware and both combine metal and glass to give them a more premium feel, they feature two different designs. The standard Galaxy S6 is definitely a change from previous Samsung devices bu the dual curved screen Galaxy S6 Edge is the truly radical one.
Samsung has indeed revealed its new flagship smartphone today, but there are actually two: The Galaxy S6, and the Galaxy S6 edge. The company’s latest premier smartphones are mostly similar on the inside, but with different external body designs, both of which push the envelope in terms of what Samsung has done with its Galaxy lineup in the past. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge combine metal and glass, eschewing almost entirely the standard plastic setup that Samsung has show a preference before in previous smartphone designs. A metal frame runs throughout, sandwiched between two panes of durable Gorilla Glass 4, which has also been treated on the inside with a special reflective material coating, giving them a jeweled-metal look that explains why some early leaks made it seem like Samsung had opted for metallic rear casing surfaces.
