Given the improved internal memory, Samsung tried the same technique by their top competitor, Apple, in avoiding the MicroSD slot and focus more on the RAM with its 32, 64, and 128 GB options.

Surprisingly, the company also took out some of its notable smartphone features such as the waterproof capability and the option to remove the battery. However, they stepped up to the competition by adding the wireless charging support for WPC and PMA to allow users to maximize Qi-enabled chargers.

Samsung modified their fingerprint scanner on the two handsets to enable the users to utilize the Samsung Pay. It is said to compete with the Apple Pay with its NFC and MST (magnetic secure transmission) chips to make it compatible with the NFC payment terminals and magnetic swipe readers on the market.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be available across several countries, including Canada, on April 10 with its three color variants.

Some mobile service providers are now offering pre-order options on their websites for the said devices as early as February.
