Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: Hands-on with the new handset

Samsung has unveiled a new flagship smartphone, with a screen that curves at both sides, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The Galaxy S6 Edge uses the feature to provide a quick way to stay in touch with select contacts, as well as to alert owners to important information.

Samsung also unveiled a more traditional looking version of the phone, which will be cheaper to buy.

The BBC's technology correspondent, Rory Cellan-Jones, quizzed Samsung Mobile Europe about the new features.
