Outline

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is our new model with an innovative product design the world has never seen; "Dual Curved LCD". The device demonstrates another advancement of the design philosophies of the Galaxy series. It employs 'Fluid UX' and 'Edge lighting UX', a set of UX choices optimized for the curved LCD, in order to maximize the value of the product. This adds a sense of humanistic value to the hardware characteristics of the Edge, by satisfying one of the basic human needs; desire to stay connected with his family and friends.
