Samsung explains the process behind the Galaxy S6’s metal and glass build


Last updated: March 4th, 2015 at 14:04 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are everything one would expect flagship devices in 2015 to be, and one of the best features of the two devices is their rather stunning metal and glass bodies. The backs of the devices are especially awe-inducing thanks to the way they reflect light, and Samsung has detailed just what goes into the process of designing what are the most attractive smartphones the company has ever produced.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge feature high-strength 6013 aluminium that is typically used in products like aircraft fuselages and automobiles and is “1.5 times stronger and 1.2 times more scratch-resistant” than the aluminium used in existing smartphones on the market. The devices are made to feel luxurious through the process of nano-thin multi-coating, which is what is responsible for the way light is reflected on the back. For the Galaxy S6 edge, the design process also includes what is called 3D Thermoforming, something Samsung says it has perfected in order to achieve the three-sided curved display.

It’s an interesting look at how the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are manufactured, and you can get all the details at the source link.
