Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge release details and first-impressions

Samsung has announced US availability for its flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones, and what better way to celebrate them landing on the SlashGear review bench than an impromptu photo-shoot. Announced back at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, the metal- and glass-bodied Android smartphones mark the beginning of a new - and welcome - design direction for Samsung, swapping the plastic of their forebears for a far more premium feel. The S6 edge, meanwhile, raises the stakes with a double-curved AMOLED display. Consider the gauntlet thrown down well and truly to the iPhone 6 and HTC One M9; read on for our first-impressions.

One of the things that some Samsung Galaxy smartphone users want on their device is a waterproof body and ruggedized designed.

Samsung now rumored to eye MediaTek for some handsets

Samsung now rumored to eye MediaTek for some handsets

It's rumors like this that make you wonder if there's more to the breakup between Samsung and Qualcomm than first believed. It is, after all, not exactly unreasonable for the Korean manufacturer to push its own Exynos chips to the forefront, but little did we expect that it might be pushing Qualcomm out of its products in more ways than one. Now MediaTek is entering the picture, with Taiwanese media painting a scenario where the chip maker will be present in some of Samsung's future smartphones.

Galaxy S6 details teased in Samsung video

Galaxy S6 details teased in Samsung video

This week the folks at Samsung are preparing for release of the Galaxy S6 with a new teaser video. This is "The Next Galaxy", as they've said the past several years, the next big thing to come from Samsung in smartphone form. This device appears to be very flat and without edge-faring displays. There's a second phone, more than likely, making this a double-release, but for now we're limited to this video bit. It's very short, and really doesn't say one whole heck of a lot.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get official mention

Samsung has seemingly confirmed that there will be two variants of the Galaxy S6 smartphone, with one - the Galaxy S6 Edge - expected to use a curved touchscreen. The new flagship will make its official debut at Samsung's pre-Mobile World Congress event in just a few weeks time, but two support pages for the Galaxy S6 (referred to by its SM-G920X product code) and the S6 Edge (as the SM-G925X) have already sprung up. Although neither has anything so useful as product shots or even diagrams of what the handsets will look like, it's apparent confirmation that the curved side-screen first used on the Galaxy Note Edge isn't quite ready for mass-market use.

Qualcomm admits “large customer” loss amid Samsung speculation

Qualcomm admits “large customer” loss amid Samsung speculation

They're not naming names, but we can pretty much read between the lines. In its Q1 2015 fiscal report, chip maker Qualcomm is lowering its revenue outlook for the second half of this fiscal year due to a number of huge factors. Aside from a shift in share among OEMs and higthened competition in China, where is actually facing some legal battles, Qualcomm also mentions the loss of a "large customer" of its Snapdragon 810. Given how things are going, it's hard not to believe that it is referring to Samsung.

Qualcomm rumored to have fixed Snapdragon 810 for Samsung

Qualcomm rumored to have fixed Snapdragon 810 for Samsung

The Snapdragon drama continues to unfold, of course only in rumors and leaks so far. After rumors that Samsung would be ditching the Snapdragon 810 for its own Exynos chip because of overheating issues, and with LG refuting such problems, word now is that Qualcomm is already addressing the root of Samsung's complaints. If such is the case, the only problem left is whether the fixed chips would make it in time for Samsung to use it on the Galaxy S6, which is expected to debut at MWC 2015 in March.
