MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge announced

So it finally happened. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge made the official appearance at MWC 2015 that we’ve been waiting for weeks and months. Samsung streamed the whole event live from Barcelona and as far as we know, about half-a-million people watched the live stream. So about the two devices — 2015’s flagship phones from Samsung — we’d say, the Korean electronics giant has done a great job.

Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge looks to be the best device ever built by Samsung. However, there’s no denying that Galaxy S6 borrows a lot from iPhone 6 as far as design goes, look at the phone from sides and you can’t tell in an instant if it’s an iPhone or Galaxy S6. But, the S6 edge is truly unique. The curved display on both sides is both purposeful and beautiful on the S6 edge.
