Update: Maxis has posted on its Facebook page that the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge will be available for pre-order on April 3. The first 1,000 shoppers will receive a free wireless charger and screen protector worth RM280, and the opportunity to buy the Green Emerald variant (while stocks last) which is exclusive to Maxis.
Fans of Samsung will not have to wait much longer as the South Korean company is launching the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones on April 2.
The company has yet to announce when the smartphones will go on sale but usually it will not be far from the launch date.
Samsung has totally redesigned the smartphones with an aerospace-grade aluminium alloy frame and glass for the front and back.
The devices have a quad-HD Super Amoled screen but only the S6 Edge's display curves all the way to the sides.
They will run on Samsung’s new Exynos processor built on the 14nm process -- a first for mobile processors -- which is more energy efficient.
Both smartphones have 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation), 5-megapixel front-facing camera, up to 128GB of internal storage and 3GB RAM.
It is not known yet what colours will be available locally but the company announced White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (S6 only) and Green Emerald (S6 Edge only) at the Unpacked event.
