Samsung S6 Edge With Curved Screen Unveiled

Samsung S6 Edge With Curved Screen Unveiled

the Galaxy S6 Edge uses the feature to provide a quick way to stay in touch with select contacts, and to alert owners to important information.

It will be sold for a higher price than the standard S6, which otherwise has the same specifications.

Samsung lost market share to Apple and others after the S5 sold fewer copies than its predecessor in many countries.

Its replacements were unveiled in Barcelona, ahead of the start of Mobile World Congress. They go on sale on 10 April in 20 countries, including the UK.

Metal frame

The South Korean firm said it had set out to address past “missteps”, and had codenamed the devices “project zero” to reflect the need for a rethink.

Changes include making the TouchWiz user interface simpler to use by cutting the number of pop-up messages and introducing a metal frame and glass back instead of the plastic styling of earlier models.

The redesign has, however, meant some features have had to be jettisoned: the phones are not water-resistant, they do not have a microSD slot for extra storage and their backs cannot be removed to change their batteries.

Even so, one expert praised the company’s choices.

“Samsung has clearly listened to feedback – not just for the Galaxy S5, which just missed the mark last year costing the company greatly – but also the S4, which was a product that tried to cram in every piece of technology it could find,” said Ben Wood, head of research at the CCS Insight tech consultancy.
