Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ announced alongside the Note 5


Alongside the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung also announced the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and as the name suggests, it is basically a bigger variant of the smartphone launched earlier this year.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) Super AMOLED display, and is powered by a Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core ( 2.1GHz Cortex-A57 quad-core + 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core) processor paired with Mali T760 GPU and 4GB of RAM.

There’s a 32GB and 64GB internal storage, but just like its predecessor there is no microSD card slot. On the photography front, there is a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front.

The smartphone also features a bigger 3,000mAh battery with fast wireless charging support, and connectivity options include single-SIM support, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and USB 2.0. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the box, wrapped under a refreshed TouchWiz UI. The new UI brings with it features like live YouTube broadcasting, and quick camera launch to name a few.

Just like the Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ too will go on sale in the US and Canada on August 21, with pre-orders kicking off today.
