Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 Edge on Sunday evening here in Barcelona, and we had a chance to look at some of the components that make the device so special up close in a meeting with the company.
Samsung started fresh with its new smartphones under what it called “Project Zero” internally. That meant designers had an option to build devices using whatever materials they wanted, instead of simply relying on mostly plastic parts for the body.
You’ll note the aluminum unibody frame that’s used at the core of the smartphone in the video above, in addition to the Gorilla Glass 4 panels that are on the front and back of the device. If you look close, you’ll see the edges of the front panel curve ever so slightly. Also of note are the new camera modules that Samsung is using, which we show briefly in the video above.
Samsung is placing big bets that consumers will prefer these materials in exchange for some changes, which include the removal of a replaceable battery and the expandable microSD card port. Check out the video for a closer look at some of these components.
