Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

The relative quiet with which Samsung just announced the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is probably a good indicator that smartphone tech advances are no longer moving at a brisk pace. But if you’re big on premium materials, you might wanna hold out for the successor to the Galaxy S5.

The big changes for the S6 Edge are the body made from aircraft-grade metal and of course the 577 ppi 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display that curves around the frame on both sides. Other highlights include Samsung’s new 64-bit Octa-core processor, a 16MP rear camera with real-time HDR & 4K video capabilities, a 5MP wide-angle camera on the front, and here’s a big one: built-in wireless charging. The battery won’t be replaceable this time around though, but Samsung says a 10-mnute charge by cord will produce four hours of power. Both the S6 Edge and S6 go on sale April 10 for a price to be determined. [Purchase]
