The Galaxy S6 is gradually being released in more markets across the globe, and Samsung is aggressively marketing the device as great for snapping selfies to attract more buyers. A newly released commercial touts the wider angle of the phone's front-facing camera.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are fitted with a 5 megapixel front-facing camera. GSM Arena said the rendering prowess of the selfie camera can be compared with that of a 16 MP primary camera. It can shoot high quality photos and shoot videos of 1,440 pixels at 30 frames per second. It comes with a wide selfie feature that can shoot a range of 120 degrees.
Phone Arena said the Samsung ad claims the new flagship will change the way a selfie is shot. With support for a wider angle, the photos snapped with the front-facing camera can include more people as well as scenic background.
In the ad, the voiceover claims people try everything to fit more people into tiny frames, taking a jab at selfie sticks that have become ubiquitous in recent years.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are both fitted with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display screens. Both support Quad HD resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels and a pixel density of 577 pixels per inch. However, the Galaxy S6 Edge features a dual edge curved display.
Both the handsets are powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chipset supported by 3 GB of RAM. Although it does not feature a microSD card slot, it is available in three storage versions: 16 GB, 32 GB and 128 GB.
The 16 MP rear camera has optical image stabilization, LED flash and can shoot video in 2,160 pixels. The Galaxy S6 is powered by a 2,550 mAh battery while the S6 Edge has a 2,600 mAh battery.
