Obviously, the focus revolved around the Galaxy S6 and it’s new brother, Galaxy S6 Edge. This is the first time we have seen two Galaxy S flagships being announced at the same time. However, the differences between the two aren’t huge. A revamped design truly took away our breath. Traditions were broken and finally, Samsung introduced something which is exemplary. Glass and Aluminium will be releasing the plastics found on Galaxy S5 and ones before it. Internals were top notch as well. 14NM Octa-Core processor, 3GB DDR4 RAM and 16MP camera with F/1.9 aperture.

A new Gear VR was announced as well. It will support the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge out of the box. Newer features include a greater pixel dense display and clarity thanks to the QHD screen present on the new phones.
