Samsung has unveiled two new flagship smartphones with a host of features aimed to compete with rival Apple phone. The phones are Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which were exhibited at the tech giant’s Unpacked event in Barcelona.
The company claims the smartphones are the most advanced and secure on the market.
New feature includes wireless charging which allows the devices to be powered up without being plugged in.
Battery charging speeds have also been improved, which will see the S6 charge one-and-a-half times faster than the existing S5 using regular plugged-in charging.
The company says it easily trumps the iPhone and can suck up 50% power in just half an hour.
One of the latest features of device is a screen that curves around both edges that enable it to display notifications and other information, including a contacts shortcut.
The new devices have a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen – claimed to be the highest pixel density of any smartphone, with 577 pixels per inch.
An upgraded camera is also part of the package, with a better f1.9 aperture boosting the quality of low-light photos and a start up time of just 0.7 seconds. The devices will also have an integrated payment system similar to the iPhone 6’s Apple Pay.
The phones are expected to be released next month.
Samsung is under pressure for the latest models to be a commercial success after the disappointing reception to the Galaxy S5.
