These two phones are unfortunately not the much rumoured Iron Man themed red and gold Galaxy S6 models, but Samsung has launched two new colours for its current flagship Android smartphones. The first is the shiny Blue Topaz Galaxy S6, and the second is the colourful Green Emerald Galaxy S6 Edge.
Blue Topaz and Green Emerald Galaxy S6 unleashed
The Samsung press release is fairly amusing as it talks about appealing to buyers who are self-confident and fastidious in the case of the blue model, for example. But having more colour options definitely isn’t a bad thing, and the phones certainly look a little more fun and enticing than the standard colour options.
It does seem though that Samsung really put a lot of thought into who would want to buy these colours. Unfortunately the blue colour will only be available for the Galaxy S6 and the green model likewise for the Galaxy S6 Edge. Launch dates have not yet been announced though, and as usual availability is likely to vary by region. Both models will be available in 32, 64 and 128 GB versions.
Here is the full press release:
Samsung Electronics announced the commercial launch of two new color editions of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. Launched globally on April 10th, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 edge smartphones redefined what’s next in mobility. In addition to the already available colors including White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum options, the long-awaited Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 and Green Emerald Galaxy S6 edge are available to consumers now.
Creating a new standard for design, craftsmanship and performance, Samsung’s newest flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 edge smartphones seamlessly blend premium materials with the most advanced Samsung technology to offer consumers an unmatched mobile experience in unique colors and materials.
“The Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 represents the perfect fashion accessory for style-conscious consumers looking for a vibrant, expressive and distinctive color, and the Green Emerald Galaxy S6 edge provides a simply stunning color choice that meets the needs of those who want a sophisticated, yet unique looking mobile device,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics. “We aim to bring a truly one-of-a-kind smartphone to consumers and provide them with a seamless combination of dynamic beauty and meaningful purpose, complementing every part of their mobile lives.”
Blue Topaz Galaxy S6
Exclusively available for the Galaxy S6, Samsung’s Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 hits the scene in a striking but subtle blue hue that is closely reflected throughout the most fashionable colors of the year. According to Pantone, a leading institute for color trends and forecasting, four shades of blue (Aquamarine, Scuba Blue, Classic Blue and Dusk Blue) are included amongst the top 10 tones leading the Spring 2015 palette for the fashion and design industries.
“People who opt for Samsung’s Blue Topaz Galaxy S6 are likely to be more self-confident, fastidious, discriminating, sensitive, exacting, and intuitive,” said world-renowned British Psychologist Dr. Donna Dawson. “The ‘brightness’ of the color tends to attract more people who are both self-assured and know what they like.”
Green Emerald Galaxy S6 edge
Exclusively available for the Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung’s newest Green Emerald exemplifies the harmony of Samsung’s design philosophy where “beauty meets purpose.” The color green represents new life and new beginnings and is closely linked to themes of nature.
“People who choose Green as their preferred color will tend to be balanced, loyal, hard-working, honest, benevolent and concerned for others,” Dawson said. “They may aspire to be good citizens with a highly-developed moral sense and a desire for simplicity. ‘Green’ also represents new life and new beginnings, and often inspires ‘hope’ and renewed vitality and energy in people, conveying friendliness and a connection to others. Green also has been shown to decrease the feeling of restlessness – this is why, when people are stressed, they often crave sanctuary in more natural surroundings. The Green Emerald shade of the Galaxy S6 edge deepens the general attraction of all things green through its depth and brightness.”
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are available globally with 32/64/128GB storage options available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (Galaxy S6 only) and Green Emerald (Galaxy S6 edge only).
