New Samsung S6 arrives in Bermuda

The latest generation of Samsung smartphones has arrived in Bermuda.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are now available at CellOne, while the S6 is also on sale at Audio Visual Electronics.

CellOne's Schereene Outerbridge said: “Customers will have the opportunity to choose between a sleek flat screen with the Galaxy S6 and the long, awaited, highly-anticipated curved screen with the Galaxy S6 Edge.”

The Galaxy S6 is available at CellOne stores across the Island, with an S6 starting at $799 with a two-year contract, while Audio Visual Electronics are offering the S6 at $1,149 at its stores in Hamilton's Washington Street and in Somerset.

The new-generation Samsungs feature upgraded designs and materials and increased efficiency through new chipsets, as well as upgrades to security, including fingerprint recognition which needs a single touch, rather than a swipe.

The new phones also feature improved brightness and contrast levels, making them easier to use in bright sunlight.

Audio Visual Electronics' Kevin Davies said the latest incarnations of the phone were closer in design to the Apple iPhone.

Mr Davies said the phone also had done away with a memory card in favour of phones offering different amounts of storage and introduced a metal housing instead of plastic.

He added: “We have sold a couple so far, but when things first come out, they tend to be fairly expensive.”

Digicel said it would also be offering both the S6 and S6 Edge and anyone interested in joining the waiting list should contact the firm.
