Samsung has modified its logo on the Galaxy S6 edge on newer units

Samsung seems to have slightly changed the look of its logo on the Galaxy S6 edge (and possibly the Galaxy S6) in newer revisions of the device. On one of our Galaxy S6 edge’s bought in the initial batch, the Samsung logo at the front of the S6 edge had a highlight around each letter, but as you can see in the picture below, the highlighting has disappeared on newer units.

The highlighted logo is something that was very noticeable on the gold variant of the Galaxy S6 edge when the phone was launched, as it reflected light in odd ways at some angles and would sometimes look too dark as a result. It actually made us wonder whether it was a deliberate move on Samsung’s part, but it apparently wasn’t as is evident by the revised logo on the units that are on sale right now. We here at SamMobile are rather divided on which version looks better, though at the end of the day none of the revisions do anything to take away from the beauty of the device.

Which version do you have on your Galaxy S6, and which version do you like more? Let us know in the comments!

Platium gold 1 vs 2

Thanks, Faryaab!

My friend bought 128GB Gold model on 18th April in Singapore, and logo is highlighted, I bought same model on 2nd June in Singapore and it’s non-highlighted logo. It means mines is newer revision than my friends one.

Neither, it shouldn’t be on the front at all. But I guess that since we’re not in Japan, we’re not worth it.

Strange…………I have the S6 edge in gold and it has the highlighted logo.

I also have the S6 black which does not have the highlight. Both devices bought at the same time at Hamad Intternational Airport, Qatar

I personally think the non highlighted one looks more premium in my opinion anyway.

I had mine since it’s released in my country and it doesn’t have the outline around Samsung logo (and honestly it’s better this way), mine is the black sapphire color, might be for the gold color only I don’t know.

i like the non-highlighted one better, looks more solid/bold, while the highlighted one looks like a sticker. just my opinion.

Yep agreed with this 100%.
The outline on the new one looks like a cheap vinyl sticker has been put on it. Given the premium design (absolutely stunning phone) I was surprised to find that they thought THIS was a good idea. It cheapens the look of the logo.
