Both products feature an appealing design with the S7 Edge offering a curved glass face. Each device runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, but the S7 Edge comes in a little larger with a 5.5 inch (13.97 centimetres) screen compared to the S7's 5.1 inches (12.95 centimetres). For the clumsy among us, the smartphones also apparently boast around 30 minutes worth of water resistance in up to 1.5 metres of water (5 feet).
If you want to get into the specs, here is Mashable's complete breakdown.
Samsung also launched the Samsung Gear 360 camera in Barcelona, a device that will help average punters create virtual reality video content. The device should also be available in Australia in 2016, but exact dates and pricing have yet to be announced.
