    These products are a result of a simple philosophy, a philosophy that has made it the leading smartphone company in the world, he said. It comes down to "relentless innovation."

    I may not be the best speaker, but that's because my first language is engineer, he says.
  • Jason Jenkins 3/1/2015 5:34:50 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:34:57 PM
    That gets a good chuckle from the crowd.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:35:12 PM
    We listen from our customers, and we learn from our successes and missteps, he says.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:35:17 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:35:18 PM
    This sounds like a more humble Samsung.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:35:25 PM
    Thats how we offer new products first, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:35:40 PM
    He talks about the use of LTE tech, the Note phablet, and the Gear smartwatch as firsts for the company.

    Samsung set out to build a best in class smartphone with best in class designs. "We did it," he says. "It's the most beautiful smartphone in Samsung's history."
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:36:37 PM
    Cue another video. Here comes the unveiling.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:36:38 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:36:57 PM
    Lights flash on the screen.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:37:00 PM
    And it goes dark.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:37:07 PM
    Dramatic bass plays. Here we go.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:37:19 PM
    A left rounded edge illuminates.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:37:20 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:37:20 PM
    I do see a lot curves.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:56:20 PM
    Sorry, the power efficiency is a boost from the Note 4, not S4.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:56:28 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:56:42 PM
    The S6 family has an enhanced processor that is faster but more power efficient, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:56:56 PM
    We've invented a battery that charges faster than any in the industry, Denison says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:57:12 PM
    It takes 10 minutes for a charge that can last four hours.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:57:13 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:57:23 PM
    Charging from 0 to 100 takes half the time as the iPhone 6.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:57:33 PM
    Samsung hitting Apple where it hurts: In the battery department.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:57:42 PM
    Pretty much every spec on the S6 and S6 Edge are the same. Only slight differences to = dimensions, battery life.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:57:58 PM
    The battery is built into the smartphone.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:58:16 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:58:22 PM
    The embedded battery isn't the only thing that some people are going to get upset about. There's no microSD card slot.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:58:22 PM
    We've refused to do this for a long time. We didn't want to do this until we felt confident that people were comfortable charging their phone, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:58:30 PM
    Wireless charging is built right in, he reiterates.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:58:36 PM
    It's 6.8mm thick.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:58:51 PM
    Samsung will sell a wireless charging dock, but it will also work with other chargers, say your existing Qi charger.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:59:18 PM
    Ah, Samsung is using both WPC and PMA wireless standards. Hurrah!
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:59:33 PM
    You know that you're covered, he says. "Wireless charging has arrived."
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:59:55 PM
    Samsung's doing a lot to reassure people who love their removable batteries.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:59:56 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:59:58 PM
    Now on to the camera.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:00:26 PM
    He is so confident about the quality of the camera that all of the scenes of this video are shot with the G6, he says.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:00:47 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:00:49 PM
    The key challenge is creating a camera that works in all lighting situations, especially dark.
