Eager Android fans waiting to get their hands on Samsung’s hot new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones still have more than a month to go before they finally start hitting store shelves in the United States and other launch markets. We’ll provide plenty of coverage between now and then to keep them sated, but it will likely still be a few weeks before we even have our review units.

Luckily, however, anxious fans don’t have to wait another minute to see these sleek new phones unboxed.

You’ve seen the full replay of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge unveiling, and you’ve seen Samsung tout the phones’ new designs on video as well. Now, it’s time to enjoy the first official unboxing and walkthrough video courtesy of Samsung.

It will still be quite some time before you can unbox one of these sleek new phones yourself, but Samsung’s well-produced unboxing and hands-on video might be the next best thing.

Of course, you should also be sure to check out our Galaxy S6 hands-on and our Galaxy S6 edge hands-on.

In Samsung’s video, Samsung starts by unboxing the Galaxy S6 edge in Platinum Gold — which might just be our color preference — and discussing the design and key features at length. Then the video moves on to the standard Galaxy S6, and covers the phone’s design, construction and key features.

Samsung even manages to toss in a little jab at Apple and its “Bendgate” issues.

The full video is embedded below.
