See all the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge color variants here - which one do you like best?

Samsung says the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are the most beautiful smartphones in its history, and it's obvious that the company has spent a lot of time deciding what colors the handsets should have at launch. As you may already know, the new Galaxies have four color versions each, but only three of them are common to both phones: White Pearl, Black Sapphire (which looks more like dark blue, rather than black), and Gold Platinum. The Galaxy S6 has an exclusive Blue Topaz variant, while the exclusive color variant of the S6 edge is Green Emerald.

While we're still about a month away until Samsung releases the S6 and S6 edge (both should be available around the world starting April 10), we can obviously take a look at all the color versions that the handsets have. We're curious to know which of these colors you like best, so check them out in the slideshow below before voting in our poll.

P.S.: for a look at real photos of Samsung's new flagships (plus videos), check out our Galaxy S6 hands-on, and our Galaxy S6 edge hands-on.

I'm not sure about the color accuracy on these renders. In real they have a weird looking metallic / shiny / iridescent varnish (or smth like) and they need to be seen in person. The black looks bluish here and the gold in some real photos elsewhere silvery

That iridescent thing is very tacky and flashy but some people call it... sophisticated

It'll be a lot more subtle in person if the S3's Black Sapphire colour is anything to go by. Not as sure about the other colours but with the black you need sunlight or a very precise angle to see the iridescent texture. Pity about the memory thing. I was hoping they could make a phone look this good and keep the utility I need for work. I'd be getting the black or emerald otherwise.

Well, they ditched microSD but they make a special dual sim edition for Philipines, don't they? Why? Because they favor carriers more than us. No microSD means more carrier data usage. Thus S6 is more attractive to carriers. They basically say to carriers: "I have a money sucker for you, better than the iPhone!" The CEO said in his speech addressing to the carriers: "our customers will be ready when you are". He also said "We put our customers first, (...) we listen" Who are their customers and who did they listened? Do it like the AppOle, Samy

thats funny, when the phone looks quite bit like the iphone... I don't even like apple products besides their keyboards but there is no denying how close they look together. Of course there is only so much you can do with a thin rectangle

I like the gold s6 edge a lot. The problem is im very sure some carriers wont get all the colors, only basic colors like white or black.

I like it, too, and I hate gold on pretty much everything. The sad thing is that you have to be a Level 3 Baller to buy the gold, and I just got promoted to Level 2.

The Prize fight is between Black Sapphire & Green Emerald. But I voted for Blue Topaz. Its very hard to choose from.

I hear you. I ve always went with black phones(except for a white Xperia S), but the Green Emerald S6 Edge is definitely calling me.
