    These are the most advanced smartphones in the world, he says. (They all say that.)
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:38:27 PM
    The Galaxy S6 Edge curves are a lot more subtle than the one right curve of the Note Edge.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:38:36 PM
    "They look really cool," he says, citing an engineering term.

    With Samsung Knox, the GS6 gives businesses more confidence in security, he says.

  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:39:29 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:39:37 PM
    Samsung is working with Visa, Mastercard and many banks on the program.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:39:45 PM
    I didn't get a demo of Samsung Pay, so I'm pretty interested in what this looks like.

    Samsung is pursuing the best LTE connection technology, he says. When carriers are ready, your phone will be too.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:40:27 PM
    There's an all new design. But it's design with a purpose, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:40:41 PM
    The GS6 can charge wirelessly -- the technology is built right in.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:40:50 PM
    I wonder which wireless tech is in the phone?
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:41:03 PM

    Samsung transforms society for the better by pushing innovation, he says, adding that others will follow.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:42:12 PM
    We set out to deliver something better than anything we've done before, and I think we did it, he says. "Next is now."
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:42:21 PM
    Samsung is showing a lot of images of the blue S6 and green S6 Edge, but I'd be impressed if most markets get these colors.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:42:25 PM
    And with that, JK Shin leaves the stage. YH Lee returns.

    Lee touts the design and performance of the phone.

    Now for a deeper look at design.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:43:20 PM
    The phone uses what looks like metal parts.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:43:28 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:43:36 PM
    It's got a big camera in the back, but like the iPhone, it protrudes a bit.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:43:47 PM
    Samsung says it's imagined a totally new design. Samsung says that each year it embraces a new design philosophy that it applies to all the phones, things like: pure minimalism (not that, but like that).
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:43:50 PM
    This video is going on way too long.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 5:44:00 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 5:44:04 PM
    It's just different shots of the phone floating around. Get to the details!
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 5:44:14 PM
    Ok, other colors: white, gold, black, and then the blue for the S6 and green for the S6 Edge.
