Samsung takes a walk down memory lane to revisit the history of the Galaxy S series


Last updated: April 13th, 2015 at 16:43 UTC+02:00

Samsung has seen tremendous success with the Galaxy S series ever since the first smartphone was launched back in 2010. With its 4-inch display and 5-megapixel camera the original Galaxy S set out to compete directly against the iPhone. In 2011 Samsung built up on that device and came out with the Galaxy S2 which earned the company Smartphone of the Year award at Mobile World Congress Global Awards.

Then came the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S4, which widely cemented Samsung’s position as a dominant force in the Android market. The Galaxy S4 was undoubtedly a hit as it sold more than 40 million units across the globe. Samsung released the Galaxy S5 last year and it brought improved build quality, better hardware coupled with IP67 certification. Given the lacklustre performance of last year’s flagship the company went back to the drawing board for 2015 and came up with the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, which are now widely considered to be the best devices that Samsung has ever built. Pre-order volumes are a testament to increased consumer interest in the company’s flagship handsets and Samsung itself believes that it won’t be able to keep up with demand for the Galaxy S6 edge.

The company today posted a video on its official YouTube channel, it takes us on a walk down memory lane to revisit all of the Galaxy S series handsets that have led up to this moment, where the spotlight is well and truly on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.
