During the presentation event, Samsung pointed out that the smartphones presented were the best they had ever created . And the fact that the Galaxy S6 Edge won the “Best New Handset, Tablet or Device” award at MWC 2015 is more than deserved.

In addition, the Galaxy S6 Edge has a 2,600mAh battery with wireless charging and fast charging mode .
Other interesting features of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
In addition to the above-mentioned features, we cannot overlook other aspects such as the rear and front cameras that integrate the Galaxy S6 Edge, 16 and 5 megapixel respectively , as well as their compatibility with Samsung Pay, a mobile payment system similar to Apple Pay.
JK Shin, president of Samsung’s mobile division, said that with the Galaxy S6 Edge they were looking to merge technology and design in a completely new way . He further noted that “we are honored that the GSMA considers these to be our most elegant and powerful devices ever created” .
As they say from GSMarena, at Samsung have reason to be very proud of their new Galaxy S6 Edge , and more after receiving this award. We’ll see how it’s received in the marketplace when it arrives on April 10th.
