The all new Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge was revealed yesterday night in Dubai at Armani Hotel Downtown, as a part of Samsung S6 World Tour. Dubai is the first city around the globe to witness the sexiest flagship from Samsung, till date. It was one of the best launch events we ever attended in Dubai. Unlike other launch events full of words like ‘The first’, ‘One of he the best’ and ‘Awesome’, they rather had an army of exhibitors walking around the hall placing a piece of beauty in front of everyone. First grip on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and I got sold.
Carefully crafted from metal and glass, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge blend purposeful design with powerful features. Galaxy S6 Edge, apart from its unique beauty, provides a solid grip because of the curved display on both sides. Both flagships are equipped with an incredibly vivid bright and fast front and rear camera. The F1.9 lenses and high-resolution sensors on both front (5 Megapixels) and Rear (16 Megapixels) cameras provide the most superior image quality in a smartphone, even in the dark.
A new “Quick Launch’ feature provides users fast / direct access to the camera from any screen in just 0.7 seconds by simply double clicking the home key button. You can also take a selfie by just tapping upon the flashlight on the back of the phone and that is where your finger usually is while holding the phone. These advanced camera features enable users to capture their most precious and personal moments in uncompromising quality.
We made a short video of the Quick Launch and also compared the camera with iPhone 6 Plus’ and turns out Samsung wasn’t wrong about better colors and low light capturing ability.
