Samsung Galaxy S6 unveiled with metal and glass build and 16-megapixel camera

Samsung has finally pulled the wrappers from its new Galaxy S6 smartphone, bringing an end to months of speculation.

By far the biggest story here is the design. Gone is the cheap plastic look of last year’s Galaxy S5, replaced with a new metal frame and glass rear that’s bound to turn heads and put an end to years of carping about the build quality of Galaxy S handsets.

But beyond the looks, Samsung has added some serious new features that are set to give it added impetus in its dogfight with Apple.

A new fast charging feature will give you four hours of battery from just ten minutes of being plugged into the mains, meaning running out of juice shouldn’t be an issue.

The camera has also been given a boost to 16 megapixels. On top of that slick new sensor, Samsung has also added a new quick launch feature so you don’t miss out on those once–in–a–lifetime moments.

There’s also improved outdoor visibility, cutting down on screen glare when reeling off pics in bright sunlight. Speaking of which, the display is a mite larger at 5.1-inches with quad HD superAMOLED tech.

Samsung has also revealed a new wireless charger pad so you can power up without plugging in.

Plus there’s a new clear cover so you can see notifications without having to slide the device from its protection.

Samsung says the Galaxy S6 will be available from April 10th. So that gives you just over a month to stash away as much of your hard–earned cash as possible.

The question now is whether it can get the ailing Korean company back on track after a disastrous 2014.
