Last year, Samsung launched the tweaked Galaxy S5 in the February, and today, exactly after a year, the Korean electronics firm has added one more iteration to the S series listing. Samsung today official brought out two of its much-awaited flagships Galaxy S6 and the curvy fellow Galaxy S6 Edge, which look robust and classy at the same time.

The two bad boys pack a punch, and if we talk about the Galaxy S6, then it holds an all-new design language. The phone reminds us of the new iPhone in terms of fixed storage and packs many top-notch specs that were missing in the previous generation S5.

Let’s take a look at the two flagships and how the S6 has advanced over time:
