The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Constructed beautifully from metal and glass the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge were unveiled at the official launch – and this is no joke - at Raffle Le Royal Phnom Penh on April 1.

The event hosted the famous Cambodian singer Aok Sokunkanha who wore a stunning white waist jumpsuit during the product launch. The pop star expressed her pride of being brand ambassador for Samsung.

“I’m very proud of the technology and creativeness of Samsung Smartphone’s. I’m honored to be the brand ambassador of this company,” she said.

The official launch of the new technology in Cambodia followed the global announcement of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge at the Mobile World Congress held March 5, in Barcelona, Spain.

At that time, JK Shin, CEO and president of Samsung who has recently made international headlines when it was announced that his salary last year topped $13 million, spoke of the smartphone’s as seamlessly blending premium materials with the most advanced Samsung technology to offer consumers an unmatched mobile experience.

“With the all new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung is offering what’s next in mobility, along with a new standard to drive the global mobile agenda,” he said. “By listening to our customers, and learning from both our success and missteps, we continuously push forward new technologies and ideas. With a reimmagined design, robust partner network and novel services, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge offer users the ultimate experience in smartphone technology.”

The dramatic redesign gives the carefully crafted smartphones an expensive and elegant look. What’s more, the smartphones are equipped with cutting-edge core technology, and an enhanced camera.

The thin and light weight Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge integrate the brand new 14nm Exynos chipset with 64-bit architecture, one of the most powerful in its class.

Behind the 5.1-inch active-matrix organic light-emitting diode, or AMOLED, display screen, the camera has been upgraded to 16MP while the front camera has 5MP. These incredibly vivid and fast cameras are the best option for selfie fans even in a dim light environment.

For the first time, Samsung has put away the removable battery and the micro SD card slot. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are equipped with built-in storage options and wireless charging. For only 10 minutes of charging, the smartphone can last up to four hours.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are available for pre order in Cambodia. The S6 32 GB retails at $690, while the S6 Edge 32 GB, depending on the storage capacity and colour choice, starts at $800.
