In a new video, Samsung has shown how far its Galaxy S series has come, from the original Samsung Galaxy S to the cutting-edge Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Back in June of 2010, Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy S. The handset had a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels (pixel density of 233 ppi), a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera, 8 to 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (up to 32 GB), a Hummingbird single-core processor clocked at 1 GHz, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, 512 MB of RAM, and a 1,500 mAh battery. It ran Android 2.1 (Eclair) out of the box with TouchWiz 3.0 UI slapped on top. At the time, this was considered cutting-edge. This is a far cry from what the S6 and S6 Edge now have to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) made by Sony, a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,550 mAh battery for the the S6 and a 2,600 mAh battery for the S6 Edge. The S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighs in at 138 g, while the S6 Edge measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0 mm and weighs in at 132 g. They run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top. Unlike the original Galaxy S’s plastic construction, Samsung’s new flagships are clad in aluminium and glass.
