The Samsung Galaxy S6 is an exciting development that shows how the Korean company is switching gears after a long history of producing virtually the same device in different forms. Understanding the need for change, the Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone embraces a unibody metal case and a curved screen, which The Verge claims "will bring change to the entire mobile industry." Of course, this bold statement owes a lot to other developments.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 will not be powered by Snapdragon. This decision, reports The Verge, "will have a huge impact on Qualcomm, which relies on Samsung’s immense order of processors every year to keep a healthy bottom line." Although these changes won't solidify the Galaxy S6 as a winner just yet, they move in the right direction.
