Looks like Samsung has finally found a reason to smile. According to a report from the Korean Times, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have managed to witness a cool 20 million pre-orders from network providers in Europe.
Out of the 20 million units ordered, 15 million are for Samsung Galaxy S6. The remaining 5 million are for the more expensive Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The executive, who wished to remain unidentified due to confidentiality, said that he had a very high opinion of both handsets.
Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge made their debut at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Spain. These new devices from Samsung will go on sale around the world, starting April 10. The Netherlands was the first territory to start receiving orders of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
The all metal and glass handsets will come in 32, 64, and 128GB models and have a 5.1-inch QHD 577ppi display, which puts it just above the Galaxy S5 as far as pixel density is concerned.
Powering the device is a 14nm Octa-core application CPU running Android 5.0 Lollipop. The phone features a 16MP rear and 5MP front-facing camera at f/1.9, which means it's wide-open for low light capabilities. The Galaxy S6 comes with an unremovable 2,550mAh battery pack. It features integrated wireless charging for both WPC and PMA standards, which means it will work with almost any charging pad you lay it on.
Samsung has been struggling lately to compete with the likes of Apple in the high-end handset market. That will change significantly once the Galaxy S6 will be made available next month.
