The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are two of the finest devices that Samsung has ever produced, combining state of the art internal components with a beautiful design. Although Samsung made some compromises – there is no MicroSD card slot and the battery is fixed rather than replaceable – the device itself is a worthy flagship contender. We’ve news today that Samsung have announced the commercial launch of two new colors of the Galax S6 range. Customers are going to be able to buy the Galaxy S6 in Blue Topaz and the Galaxy S6 Edge in Green Emerald. These new colors join the existing range of White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum.
In other respects, the Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 and Green Emerald Galaxy S6 Edge are identical to the other colors available. Each is based around the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor, which is a big.LITTLE design based on ARM Cortex-A57 and A53 architecture respectively. There’s a healthy 3 GB of RAM and a choice of 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB internal storage available. Around the back, there’s a 16MP rear camera. Both devices support wireless charging as well as Samsung’s quick charger technology, which in combination makes the most of the relatively limited internal battery, just over 2,500 mAh for both models.
Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics, said this about the new colors: “The Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 represents the perfect fashion accessory for style-conscious consumers looking for a vibrant, expressive and distinctive color, and the Green Emerald Galaxy S6 Edge provides a simply stunning color choice that meets the needs of those who want a sophisticated, yet unique looking mobile device. We aim to bring a truly one-of-a-kind smartphone to consumers and provide them with a seamless combination of dynamic beauty and meaningful purpose, complementing every part of their mobile lives.” Younghee’s words appear to carry weight with Pantone (a leading institute for color trends and forecasting) when it comes to the blue model, as there are four shades of blue (these being Aquamarine, Scuba Blue, Classic Blue and Dusk Blue) included amongst the top ten tones leading the Spring 2015 fashion and design palettes around the world. Although Samsung’s press release states that the two colors are available now, it does not go into detail about the regions of world and if “now” truly means right now. If we receive any further information we will let you know.
