The next big things from Samsung. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this month Samsung showed off the newest members of the Galaxy mobile phone family. We’ll let CEO JK Shin do the honors…
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. These are the most advanced, powerful, smartphones in the world with capabilities no other phone can match.”
Samsung is fighting back against Apple and other rivals with a new aluminum alloy body, built in wireless charging…and cameras that are designed to produce great results even in dim lighting. It will also be able to use a new mobile payments system the company will roll out this year in partnership with banks and credit card companies. On the down side…the new S6 phones do away with user replaceable batteries and memory cards. They arrive…next month. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
