Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone maker, launched its latest flagship devices – Galaxy S6 and Galaxy 6 Edge – in the premium segment in the world’s fastest growing smartphone market in the world.
The Galaxy S6 starting price is Rs 49,990 and has has a 5.1-inch 2K Amoled display, 16 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera, an octacore processor with a 3 GB RAM.
The Galaxy S6 Edge is the world’s only smartphone which has dual curved screen, or curved from both lengths of the screen, and is priced at Rs 58,990 for the lowest storage variant. The Edge has the similar features as that of the S6, but differs in battery and the display make. “We see a large growth with edge and curved displays,” said Asim Warsi, head of mobile and IT business in India, indicating that innovation would be key to growth for the company that has seen device sales flagging and revenues slumping.
Warsi added that the S6 would be made in India, but did not give a time line. Original post at ET Telecom
