Samsung Unpacked Galaxy S6

The Korean electronics giant will show off its newest devices during an event in Barcelona, Spain.

    Samsung Pay comes this summer in the US and Korea. It'll be accepted by more retailers than any other offering, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:08:04 PM
    That's what we mean by getting mobile payments right.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:08:05 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 6:08:20 PM
    You better believe we're going to take Samsung Pay for a spin, especially against Apple Pay.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:08:42 PM
    The GS6 is ready for business. Denison now introduces Gregory Wade, VP of the enterprise business team at Samsung.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:09:11 PM
    The Galaxy S6 ranks as one of the most secure devices on the market today, Wade says. It has "defense grade security built in."
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:09:20 PM
    BlackBerry may say a thing or two about that.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:09:31 PM
    Of course, now BlackBerry and Samsung are partners.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 6:09:37 PM
    BYOD (bring your own device) is huge, especially now that BlackBerry is out of the picture as its own mobile phones. Samsung has hit Knox for enterprise hard.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:09:45 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:09:48 PM
    Wade talks about estimates calling for Samsung to dominate the business world.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:10:02 PM
    The GS6 is definitely ready for business right now, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:10:15 PM
    Agencies in the US, UK and Finland have given their thumbs up on Knox, he says.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:10:21 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:10:49 PM
    Knox also works with the leading mobile device management service, like BlackBerry. That means IT folks in the office can work with your Samsung phone.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:10:59 PM
    And with that, YH Lee is back.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 6:11:02 PM
    This is a pretty short presentation. Sounds like we're almost done.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:11:05 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:11:11 PM
    Today's Unpacked was a big one, she says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:11:28 PM
    Tonight, we bring you the beginning of a whole new galaxy, she says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:11:37 PM
    And with that, cue another video.

  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:12:28 PM
    It'll be interesting to see how much the Edge costs relative to the GS6. How much of a premium will there be?
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:12:31 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:12:35 PM
    The Note Edge was $100 more than the Note 4.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:12:53 PM
    The S6 and S6 Edge will be available on April 10 in 20 countries.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:13:06 PM
    You can buy them in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:13:09 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 6:13:33 PM
    Since there's no Micro-SD card slot, Samsung needed to boost the internal storage space. Default leapt from 16GB to 32GB.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:13:40 PM
    "Okay, that's it," she says. And with that, it's all wrapped up.
  • Roger Cheng 3/1/2015 6:14:18 PM
    And YH Lee says, that's it.
  • Kent German 3/1/2015 6:14:26 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 6:14:31 PM
    I know from seeing the devices that there's a Microsoft partnership as well, because I saw a Microsoft folder, and because Microsoft is giving you over 100GB of free OneDrive storage space for 2 years.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/1/2015 6:15:22 PM
    There's a lot more that Samsung didn't cover here. I had a chance to see both devices, so make sure you check out the video and first impressions, plus a breakdown of the specs:
