Available as an exclusive colour scheme for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, this green emerald edition is yet to get UK prices as it’s expected release has been delayed.
The black sapphire, gold platinum and white pearl colours of the Samsung S6 Edge are all due for release on April 10th with most UK retailers now offering pre-order contract deals across four networks; EE, O2, Three Mobile and Vodafone.
S6 Edge Green Release Date & Prices
The 32GB version of the S6 Edge is expected to be delayed for at least 3 weeks after the launch of the 64GB and 128GB models, although the exclusive green emerald colour scheme may take even longer to hit UK stores.
This is likely to make the green edition the ‘most wanted’ of all of the colour schemes simply due to lack of UK stock, however we do expect international smart phone retailers and websites to offer the S6 Edge in Green as a SIM free phone, we’re already seeing prices released (although all show ‘out of stock’ messages) at around £671.99 for the 32GB model and £796.99 for the largest 128GB edition.

The New Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is an amazing upgrade, it uses a full metal frame and glass construction that delivers superior look and quality. It features the latest Gorilla Glass front and back design with brilliantly machined power and volume buttons and curved corners. It’s three sided screen really catches the eye and eliminates the left and right screen bezels while adding useful functionality.
The Galaxy S6 Edge features a Super AMOLED 2k Display with 577 pixels per inch, delivering a beautiful range of colours. The 2,560 x 1,440 resolution allows your phone to show a high-resolution image in incredible detail. The curved edges act as a secondary display where you can view notifications and launch applications with one hand. Additionally, it comes with a new feature that lets you add your favorite contacts to the secondary display for quick access.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge runs on Android Lollipop, which is the latest software of Android. The Galaxy S6 Edge software puts its features and functions you want to use front and centre which means there will be less clutter in apps and no scrolling in the camera app to get to the important features.
The S6 Edge comes with a non removable battery. However, when you are on the go and are short on battery, not to worry, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has the ability to fast charge your battery when plugged into a charging cable. It can deliver four hours of battery life from just 10 minutes of charging. How convenient! This allows you to watch upto 2 hours of HD video from just 10 minutes of charging.
The new smartphone packs a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera capturing moments as they happen with a launch time of only 0.7 seconds. It also features Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) which allows the camera to use a slower shutter speed, allowing it to take in more light and keeps the image stable while you hold the camera, so you get less blur in your photos and less shake in your videos. You will be able to zoom upto 8X and still get amazing results.
IR White Balance Detection
The S6 Edge uses IR White Balance detection to detect the light around and adjust the camera to capture accurate colours and crisper blur-free images.
HDR (Rich tone)
HDR mode lets you take pictures and capture video when there is either too much or too little light. Auto Live HDR shows you a preview of how the photo will be taken in HDR, instead of showing you the dark or light preview. HDR photos are also taken quicker, cancelling out the need to stay still.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge features wireless charging. The S6 Edge wireless charging works on WPC and PMA chargers which means almost any wireless charger you find will support it.
Heart Rate Sensor

The Galaxy S6 Edge supports making mobile payments with NFC, known as Samsung Pay which also includes the ability to make payments with wireless magnetic card data. It is accepted in 90% of retail locations, which is much broader than NFC payment support but with a secure fingerprint connected solution.
