Android fans who want a little color in their life will be happy to know Samsung just announced two new color options for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The color options include blue and emerald green. Before Samsung offered the two bolder color options, the only color options were white pearl, gold platinum and black sapphire.
Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge now come in fun colors
Samsung’s Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, Younghee Lee, explained that the blue topaz Galaxy phone is ideal for those who want a stylish phone in a unique color. The green emerald Galaxy phone is perfect for those who want a sophisticated gadget in a brilliant hue.
Samsung first unveiled the new phones during this year’s Mobile World Conference. Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge feature a 5.1-inch quad-HD super AMOLED display. The phones run on the Android 5.0 operating system and have a 64-bit octacore processor. The only major difference between the two models is the dual-edge display on the Galaxy Edge. The phones are some of the most popular Android smartphones available in the market today, adding two new bold color options to give customers more options.
Samsung vs. Apple
In other Samsung-related news, the South Korean tech giant lost against Apple as an appeals court upheld most of Apple’s patent victory from 2012. However, it did overturn one small part of the decision. The decision said the lower court should reduce the total amount the Galaxy phone maker is required to pay.
Apple claimed rival Samsung copied the iPhone with similar smartphones. The court claimed that Apple failed to prove that the iPhone’s physical design wasn’t functional. If Apple was granted special protection based on its smartphone aesthetic, it would be granting it a monopoly. In 2012, the jury agreed that Samsung violated patents. They also said Samsung needed to pay over $1 billion for the damages it caused Apple. A year later, that number was lowered to $930 million.
