India Get Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Soon This Month

Samsung is all set to launch the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones in India on March 23. While the phones will go on sale in India from April, the company will announce the pricing and availability details for the Indian market on Monday.
The Galaxy S6 has a flat display, while the Galaxy S6 Edge has a dual-curved display that wraps around both the left and right sides. Stand-out features include casing made from light-weight metal used in airplanes, a step up from the plastic that disappointed many critics of the S5, and Corning's Gorilla Glass on both front and back.

The Galaxy S6 upgrades the previous version's camera and screen, and strips out many of Samsung's unpopular in-house software apps that infuriated users by gobbling memory. The new phones are powered by Samsung's new 64-bit, 14-nanometer Exynos processors.

The new handsets are also the first from Samsung to support wireless charging as a standard feature. In another departure, they have non-removable batteries to make them slimmer. To compensate for the lack of interchangeable batteries, Samsung says a 10-minute charge by cord gives four hours of power.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be available starting from April 10 with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options.

The phones will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (Galaxy S6 only) and Green Emerald (Galaxy S6 Edge only).

The new phones are critical for Samsung's plans to reverse plunging smartphone revenues that led to its first annual earnings fall in three years in 2014.

By some estimates, Apple surpassed Samsung as the world's biggest smartphone maker late last year, selling a record 74.5 million iPhones in the December quarter on the back of the success of its big-screen iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Samsung's previous flagship Galaxy S5 was outsold in its second full month of global sales by Apple's older iPhone 5S, according to researcher Counterpoint.
