Samsung Galaxy s6 & s6 edge launch party

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge land in New Zealand

Thanks to Samsung New Zealand, Remix Magazine and all the sponsors, we had an amazing time at the Galaxy s6 and Galaxy s6 launch party last night at Shed 10. The atmosphere was fun, well-dressed crowd and lovely hospitality all combined to make it an exciting event!

The long-awaited Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge from Samsung Electronics will be available at selected retailers in New Zealand tomorrow. Acknowledged for their beauty and design, speed and performance, the S6 and S6 edge are arriving in New Zealand to a storm of excitement.

I am in love with the s6 edge and I really want one (gold please!) It’s nothing like I have ever seen in a mobile phone, the curved screen gives it a crisp, sharp and 3D effect, in my opinion.  I love the way the phone looks and feel which is very significant. The phone is as unique as the owner, it is an extension of yourself as an individual, so for me, it needs to reflect me for me to want to use it. The selfie camera alone is 5mp, sorted. If you are like me, and have wobbly hands trying to get that perfect selfie shot, rest assured, the button is conveniently placed at the back of the phone, so you can reach out for a selfie at such convenience. Problem solved!

Both the S6 and the S6 edge boast a vivid screen, super-fast charging and high performance cameras. The S6 edge is the only device in the world to feature a dual curved screen.

Stefan Lecchi, Head of Telecommunications for Samsung Electronics New Zealand, says, “The overwhelmingly positive response to these fantastic mobile devices has blown us away. We’re delighted that New Zealanders are as excited about the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge as we are – we can’t wait for the ultimate in smartphones to be readily available here in New Zealand.”

Here are some fun snaps from the evening:
