Carefully crafted from metal and glass, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge blend purposeful design with powerful features. The Galaxy S6 Edge, particularly, shows unique and outstanding beauty while also providing a solid grip and an immersive viewing experience with the world’s first curved display on both sides. Its glass body, made from the toughest glass to date, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, is available in an array of colorful jewel tones, including White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz and Green Emerald, which elicit a unique visual texture as it reflects natural light. This timeless design required first-of-its-kind glass crafting technology and unmatched quality control, setting the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge apart from every other mobile device on the market. The premium device aesthetics deliver true value and are complemented by a totally new and lighter interface that greatly enhances usability and functionality. A refined and fully optimized user experience simplifies applications and offers features and settings in a more intuitive way.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are equipped with an incredibly vivid, bright and fast front and rear camera. The F1.9 lenses and high-resolution sensors on both front (5MP) and rear (16MP) cameras provide the most superior image quality in a smartphone, even in the dark. In addition, Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and IR Detect White Balance provide advanced light sensitivities and crisp camera solutions. Furthermore, a new “Quick Launch” feature give users fast, direct access to the camera from any screen in 0.7 seconds by simply double clicking the home key button. These advanced camera functions enable users to capture their most precious and personal moments in uncompromising quality, however and wherever they want.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are setting a new industry standard for universal wireless charging, being fully embedded with WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology. The devices work with any wireless pads available in the Saudi market that support WPC and PMA standards. They also sport incredibly fast wired charging, providing (depending on usage) about 4 hours of usage after only approximately 10 minutes of charging.

The thin (6.8 mm/7.0mm Edge) and lightweight (138g /132g Edge) Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge integrate the most advanced, cutting-Edge, Samsung core technology available today. 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 5.1-inch Quad HD Super Amoled screen offers users the highest pixel density of 577ppi. Enhanced outdoor visibility with a brighter display lets consumers experience content without compromise.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are built on the upgraded Samsung KNOX, end-to-end secure mobile platform, offering defense-grade features for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks. Both of these new devices are also ready for immediate enterprise adoption, with market leading MDMs and KNOX enhancements enabled at launch to simplify and improve mobile device management. Additionally, the Find My Mobile feature secures lost devices and protects personal information through a number of services, including the all-new remotely controlled “Reactivation lock.” With an enhanced touch-type fingerprint scanner, it also provides quick authentication and saves encrypted data in secure device storage.
