Samsung Admits Clear View Case Could Scratch Up Galaxy S6

May 20, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are the company’s newest flagship offerings. This Korea-based tech giant has announced the two devices during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona back in March, and both of them are available for purchase all over the world as we speak. Samsung has announced a range of accessories which are meant to keep your device safe and what not, but last week, reports surfaced saying that one of the company’s cases is actually damaging the two devices, read on.

The vast majority of such reports are actually false, in most cases those are isolated incidents caused by the consumers, but not this time around. Samsung has officially confirmed that their Clear View case actually might scratch the display of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets. Dirt and debris is reportedly causing these tiny scratches on the display, despite the fact this is Gorilla Glass 4 we’re talking about, glass that has proven itself to be extremely rigid. It seems like these small particles are actually causing some damage. A number of users at XDA’s forums are having such issues, and Samsung has told them that they’re aware of the issue and are looking into it. There are a number of images in the gallery down below which actually show off those scratches on the Galaxy S6 / Galaxy S6 Edge’s display. As you can see, those are tiny, but very much noticeable, as you can see in the provided images.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets are somewhat different on the outside thanks to the S6 Edge’s curved display, but they’re almost identical on the inside (different battery). These two handsets feature a 5.1-inch QHD display along with 3GB of RAM and various internal storage variants. The two handsets are powered by the company’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor and ships with a 16-megapixel OIS camera on the back. The 2-megapixel snapper is available on the front side of these handsets, and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top of it. The two devices also offer 4G LTE connectivity, of course.
