QCOSTARICA TECH – The Samsung Galaxy Flat S6 and S6 Samsung Galaxy Edge, the two versions of one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, were released yesterday in the country.

With a metal body, internal battery super-fast processor, brilliant camera and wireless charging, Samsung’s latest flagship is the best phone it’s ever made. It is expected to go head-to-head with the iPhone 6. In fact, one review called the S6 “the iPhone killer”.

The follow up to the Samsung Galaxy S5, which had cutting edge technology but lacked a premium design and feel, the S6 continues the Korean company’s reinvention of the look and feel of its smartphones and tablets.
