The all-new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge were introduced to the region by Samsung Electronics at the World Tour event held in Dubai today. Dubai is the first city globally to host the Samsung World Tour which will see the launch of the new flagships in different cities around the world.


Creating a new standard for design, craftsmanship and performance, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge mixes technology with aesthetics.

“When consumers see the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, they’ll see the future of mobility. Both are dynamic new additions to Samsung’s portfolio, but they are also powerful performers and intuitive devices that make sharing, exploring and creating more enjoyable and enriching than ever before. As the next generation in our Galaxy line, the S6 and the S6 edge are designed to help our customers go beyond convention and create meaningful experiences from the palms of their hands.” Mr. Hayssam Yassine, Head of Telecommunications Group at Samsung Gulf Electronics

The S6 and the S6 Edge are made of a mix of metal and glass which do not really define bling but are enough to catch the eye. The combination of design and features could have been better had it looked lesser like the iPhone 6/6+ but it’s still power packed in its own right. Glass Body made from Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and in 4 different color schemes White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz and Green Emerald which basically are light reflective to give a sort of a shiny element to the piece that’s bound to garner some attention when out in public.  A refined and fully optimized user experience simplifies applications and offers features and settings in a more intuitive way.


Equipped with a 5Mp front camera and a 16MP back camera, this device is no slouch when it comes to imagery. It has features very specific to low light and also combined with the lens is Auto Real Time High Dynamic Range (HRD), Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and IR Detect White Balance which will bring out the color’s and crispiness in the picture no matter what the light sensitivity. The lens being a f/1.9 will definitely cater well to the photographers who use mobile cameras while even video will be much better in low light situations. Furthermore, a new “Quick Launch” feature give users fast, direct access to the camera from any screen in just 0.7 seconds* by simply double clicking the home key button.

Samsung has stayed with the pace of the market with fully embedded WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology. They work with any wireless pad in the market which support those 2 standards. Also charging rate is very quick which in comparison to the S5 will be 1.5x faster providing close to 4 hours battery life for only 10 minutes of charging.

The thin (6.8 mm/7.0mm edge) and lightweight (138g /132g edge) Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge certainly shows Samsung’s commitment to make phones which are not a hassle to carry around due to weight or size. 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. Moreover, the world’s first mobile 1440P/VP9 hardware based decoder enables users to enjoy high resolution streaming video while also using less power. In addition, the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen offers users the highest pixel density of 577ppi.

The latest line of Galaxy devices by Samsung with all their design and performance certainly haven’t lacked in terms of security which happens to be a core factor for mobile production. Samsung has used its KNOX security suite to provide the latest in security of your device. They are also adaptable to the market leading MDMs and KNOX enhancements which make security simple to manage. Find My Mobile and Reactivation lock and an enhanced touch-type fingerprint scanner are some of the features available in the security.
