Samsung Electronics will today release its entirely redefined smartphones - the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge - in Jamaica.

The phones were officially launched at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston yesterday evening.

In a statement, Samsung said the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge blend premium materials with the most advanced Samsung technology to offer consumers an "unmatched mobile experience".

"With the all-new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung is presenting what's next in mobility, along with a new industry standard to drive the global mobile agenda. By listening to our customers, we've been able to create two devices that offer the best of the Galaxy experience, taking attributes such as design and functionality to a higher level than ever before," said Kenneth Moore, key accounts manager at Samsung Electronics. "For Samsung, it is exceedingly important to place the newest Galaxy line in the hands of our local consumers, to offer users the ultimate experience in smartphone options, combining premium design with the latest technology."

Crafted from metal and glass, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge blend design with powerful features.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are built on the upgraded Samsung KNOX, end-to-end secure mobile platform, offering defense-grade features for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks. Both of these new devices are also ready for immediate enterprise adoption, with market-leading MDMs and KNOX enhancements enabled at launch to simplify and improve mobile-device management.

Additionally, the Find My Mobile feature secures lost devices and protects personal information through a number of services, including the all-new remotely controlled 'Reactivation lock'.

With an enhanced touch-type fingerprint scanner, it also provides quick authentication and saves encrypted data in secure device storage.
