London, UK – 5th March 2015 – The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge today received the special honour of “Best New Handset, Tablet or Device” from the GSMA at Mobile World Congress 2015.

“With the Galaxy S6 edge, we sought to blend technology and design in a way the world has never seen before,” said JK Shin, president and head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “We are honoured that the GSMA agree that these are our most elegant and powerful devices so far.”
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge have received more than 20 prestigious awards on-site at MWC 2015, including Ubergizmo’s “Best of Mobile World Congress,” Mashable’s “Top Pick” and Laptop Magazine’s “Top Pick.”
