The exclusive blue topaz colour scheme of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S6 is only currently sold on contracts via the CPW Group in the UK (who call it their Exbluesive!), however that doesn’t mean you cannot buy the beautiful blue S6 as a SIM free phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Blue is now available with no contract SIM card or network locks allowing you to simply insert your own SIM card.
Buying SIM free does mean paying the ‘true’ price of a phone with no network subsidy as with pay monthly deals, however it gives you complete freedom to use the handset on any network you choose.
This SIM free release is for the 32GB edition (the smallest of the memory formats available) of the blue topaz Samsung Galaxy S6, we expect further releases for the 64GB and 128GB models very soon.
Expertly crafted from metal and glass, the Galaxy S6 blends purposeful design with powerful features.
This timeless design required first-of-its-kind glass crafting technology and unmatched quality control, setting the Galaxy S6 apart from every other mobile device on the market. The premium device aesthetics deliver true value and are complemented by a totally new and lighter interface that greatly enhances usability and functionality.
The Galaxy S6 integrates the most advanced, cutting-edge, Samsung core technology available today. The world’s first 14nm mobile processor with 64-bit platform, new LPDDR4 memory system and UFS 2.0 flash memory provides higher performance and enhanced memory speed with lower power consumption. In addition, the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen offers users the highest pixel density of 577ppi. Enhanced outdoor visibility with a brighter display (600cd/mm) lets consumers experience content without compromise – anywhere, at any time.
Virtually re-designed from the ground up the Samsung Galaxy S6 no longer uses plastic found on previous Galaxy models, instead we have a blend of aluminium and Corning Gorilla Glass 4, offering a solid and premium in hand feel.
Such material change means that no longer is there a removable back cover; instead the battery is fixed internally, as is the memory.
However, what may be considered a negative is made up for by the immersive display that offers a massive 577 Pixels per Inch (PPI) thanks to a 5.1” Super AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution.
A complaint with screens has always been visibility outside in sunlight and the, brighter, images on screen ensures you have less issue when using the screen under such conditions.
More detail, more clarity, and an on screen experience that is even more impressive than devices of past.
An octa core processor and 3GB of RAM accompany 32, 64 or 128GB of internal storage for your files and memory hungry media.
The provided Microsoft One Drive access offers 115GB of online storage for 2 years.
Spend less time waiting with a fast processor and high speed wireless connections be it Bluetooth, WiFi or 4G, it is all built into the S6.
Wherever you are in the world you should be able to remain connected and in touch with the world around you. Use it for work, to send files and documents, or for personal access to websites and social media outlets.
Charged via a microUSB cable, this same port allows you to connect it to a computer, take advantage of USB hosting and, with the appropriate MHL adapter or cable, you can output the screen of your S6 to a larger HD display. Ideal for sharing content with friends, family and colleagues.
Capture stunning images from the rear 16 megapixel camera, capable of 4K video recording, or from the front facing 5 megapixel camera which will give even more clarity for those video calls. Enhanced camera functionality ensures lower light shots return better results from the F1.9 aperture and the dual tone LED flash.
We have all had moments when we wish to capture that image but the opportunity passes us by because we cannot load the camera quickly enough. Well with the S6 the Quick Launch option will give quick access to the camera with a double tap of the home button. Launch and be ready to capture in just 0.7 seconds.
Have you ever considered how much data is on your phone and what it is really worth to you?
Whilst Android offers password and PIN code security options, more robust security options like fingerprints ensure the data does not get into the wrong hands. On board the S6 is a reworked fingerprint scanner that offers improved security and reliability.
Where corporate data is stored on the phone and is perhaps more sensitive than personal content, Samsung KNOX offers an end-to-end solution for a secure mobile platform. Defence grade features to offer protection from threats.
Find My Mobile is a feature that secures lost devices and protects information through a number of services. All of this offers you peace of mind if the worst should happen.
All of these features if used to their fullest will, of course, drain the internal battery, so the ability to charge the device quickly will be of paramount importance.
Now included in the Galaxy range is Qi wireless charging, but not as an optional extra, this is included out of the box.
