Samsung Galaxy s6 edge waterproof

Is the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge waterproof? 

Samsung fans are eagerly waiting for the launch of the new Galaxy S6 Edge. This new Smartphone from Samsung will be officially launched on 2nd March and will become commercially available in the market by April 10th. The handset will be available in four shimmering color options. These are white, black, gold and deep green. The shimmering effect is created by the reflection of the light that hits the screen.

The greatest speculation centered around the question whether the Galaxy S6 Edge will be waterproof or not. This question arose because the S5 was made waterproof. It could function for thirty minutes under about 3.2 feet of water. However, it has now been confirmed that the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will not be waterproof. So, if you are specifically looking for a water resistant Smartphone, your only option is to turn to the Active range launched by Samsung. However, though the S6 Active is waterproof, it is a little heavier because of the larger battery and a few features are missing to make space for the new technology.

Apart from this, the Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the most attractive products launched by Samsung. The most striking feature of this phone is the dual curved display. It is simply breathtaking as the glass screen sweeps round the edges of the phone. You can set up to five different color options of the screen and assign them to a specific caller. So, if the phone rings while upside down, you will be able to see the color from the edge and identify your caller.

The dimensions of the S6 Galaxy edge are 142 x 70.1 x 70mm and it weighs only 132 grams. It is equipped with a 64-bit 14nm Samsung Exynos 7 Octa processor and a 3 GB RAM. It has an excellent 16 mp camera at the rear and a 5 mp camera at the front with real-time HDR and wide-angle selfie. The power is derived from a 2600mAh battery. Wireless charging allows you to easily recharge your phone and it can be used for up to four hours after only ten minutes of charging. The Samsung Pay feature allows you to easily pay your bills from your Samsung Smartphone. The vastly improved fingerprint sensor which is present in this phone is a highly positive user experience. Finally, the display is definitely the best in the market.
