What makes these smartphones so special? For one thing, its casing is made from a special light-weight material specifically used in airplanes. It’s definitely another class on its own and the fact that it isn’t plastic, that’s an added bonus! It will also have the iconic Corning Inc’s Gorilla Glass on both the front and back of the smartphones.

When it comes to the camera and screen upgrade, the brand did not disappoint as Samsung has spruced up their new smartphones. No longer will it house unpopular in-house apps that irritated many users no end because it swallowed up a lot of memory space. Now, that’s in the past. Samsung listened to their users and have churned out a real beauty. The new phones will be powered by Samsung’s own 64-bit, 14-nanometer Exynos processors, a departure from its previous reliance on Qualcomm Inc’s chips.

Another major noticeable change are the batteries. Users would need to know that the batteries in the new phones cannot be replaced, unlike the other Galaxy devices in the past. To compensate for this factor, the devices are the first from Samsung to support wireless charging without a dedicated accessory, which in itself is very cool!
