Hate the battery life on your current phones? Samsung fast charge claims 4 hours of usage in just 10 minutes of charging, plus there is wireless charging built in though the wireless charging pad is sold separately.
The seamless metal and glass body redesign however means that there won’t be any microSD slot for storage expansion options or quick battery replacements since the back cover can’t be removed. The new phones will no longer be water resistant as well.
On the software side, Samsung has changed and improved the TouchWiz user interface cutting down the number of pop-ups.
The phones will go on sale in 20 countries from 10 April 2015, no pricing has been announced yet.
