I'm really hoping they follow these specs...which match the S6+ specs above...
14. Landon (Posts: 488; Member since: 07 May 2015)
Oh and this article can be perceived as the Note 5 having expandable storage given there's only a 32GB version available. Again, all speculation though.
48. khul00 (Posts: 24; Member since: 06 Sep 2014)
Non expandable and 3000 mah battery i can confirm held the phone in my hand. And went into the battery settings
50. Ordinary (Posts: 2316; Member since: 23 Apr 2015)
You cant see how much mah in battery you have from battery setting, straight up bs.
51. Landon (Posts: 488; Member since: 07 May 2015)
Why must you shatter my dreams? Lol kidding but it's just weird that they're only showing a 32GB version on the link above and not a 64GB version too.
In your opinion, how do you think the phone sizes up overall against the Note 4?

LMFAO These prices are absolutely INSANE. I commend Motorola's $180 G-phone for proving these cell phone companies are GREEDY PIGS.

The Moto G while nice for the average Joe is not a power users phone and does not pretend to be. Some of use power users want the latest and greatest spec'ed out device and certain people are willing to pay to play.

really? tell me what a power user does with his phone that a moto G can't handle

$1K? Wow! I'd buy it if it was half that much, but I can't reasonably justify paying $1K for a phone. There's just not enough productivity work that I could get done with it at my job (or at home) to make it worth it.

It will probably cost 799 usd in America. In Europe everything is expensive due to high taxes.
17. Ahovking (Posts: 710; Member since: 03 Feb 2015)
Everything in is more expensive in Europe and Australia is because wages are higher so they can rip off consumers even more.
60. ibend (Posts: 4577; Member since: 30 Sep 2014)
not really, even if they buy from online store, they still pay VAT..
they one ripping of consumers is government, not companies

Wait two to three months and the price will be halved.
4. Carl3000 (Posts: 162; Member since: 11 Oct 2014)
1200 for a phone is very expensive. Even by Apple standards. I'm just waiting on the 3 phones to pick from. Z5, New Nexus, or Xoami Mi 5.
18. -Shadow- (Posts: 94; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
it wont be over 1000, this kind of conversion of prices usually is not true to the real cost, a 799euro phone will propably cost 799$, still very pricey though.
42. Johnnokia (Posts: 1093; Member since: 27 May 2012)
After three months when the new iPhones smash their sales, Samsung is gonna cry, cut the price 40%, and seek for alternatives and another project zero.
Samsung, HTC , and Sony are always starting with dumb decisions, but later regret and pay millions of $$$ to solve these problems, and they can't.
Every time they think they are like Apple having a control over the market.
NO, YOU DON'T HAVE APLLE POTENTIAL NIETHER THEIR FANBASE.
Just learn from your mistakes !

This guy is a genius, he is so right! I mean he makes Stephen Hawking look like a buffoon :)
5. gersont1000 (Posts: 334; Member since: 13 Mar 2012)
$1000 for a 32GB phone? LOL! Samsung, your phones are great but with your latest decisions and pricing schemes, you're pretty much giving Apple the win. Not to mention all the great cheap Android phones that are out now and that will come out. I would've gladly bought Samsung phones before but to get the features that I used to love from Samsung and the good prices, I will continue to look somewhere else.
19. donfem (Posts: 646; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)
You want all the features but at a very reduced price? By the way, when was the last time Apple sold a "cheap" phone to warrant your decision to give "apple the win?"
65. gersont1000 (Posts: 334; Member since: 13 Mar 2012)
I say Apple "won" because that's one of the reasons Samsung fanboys used to defend buying a Galaxy phone. Now, there's no removable battery, no microSD slot, the phone is built with a fragile glass surface all around, and is more expensive than other flagships. Instead of continuing to be better than Apple, Samsung has stooped to Apple's level but are only losing their long time supporters along the way. So, in my mind, that's a win for Apple. And I HATE Apple, btw!

I don't see where pricing is any different. The Note 4 in the USA starts at $699 on Verizon, while GSM versions start at 799.
The S6 starts at $599 and the S6 Edge is $699 with VZW again the other carriers tend to be higher.
You have to consider the gap of the Korean Wan vs the USD or the European Dollar is going to be very different. Also, doesn't Europe charge a larger import tax vs the USA?
Everyone always complains about phone pricing. The iPhone costs more than any phone in it's mid-ramged class and cost more than flagships from other brands. Yet people are buying them. Samsung phones don't cost to much for what they offer.
You start with double the iPhone storage, more/faster ram, better cameras by a longshot, nicer design, less fragile, bigger display, faster gpu/cpu/, thinner, faster, more features, more customizations and more and yet they cost less.
Stop complaining about Samsung pricing when you are getting a better piece of hardware vs any brand you can name. PERIOD.

Is the Note 5 EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS better than the Motorla G? NO, it is NOT, you idiotic Samsung wh@re.
36. willard12 (Posts: 1677; Member since: 04 Jul 2012)
KKKwertyphone, it's the same rationale as Apple. If people end up getting the MOTO G in larger numbers than the Note 5 then you are right. However, if people choose the Note 5 in larger numbers than the Moto G, then you are an idiot.

LMAOOOOO KKK! From his posts, I wouldn't be surprised if he's a Grand Wizard.

I just googled prices in "romania s6 edge price" I got following result
Romanian prices : Samsung Galaxy S6 - 32GB = 742 Euros / 785 Dollars Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge - 32GB = 876 Euros / 928 Dollars
By that calculation S6 Edge plus would be slightly higher than S6 Edge. And we will see price drop in normal S6 edge, so IMO expect fair prices.

At the end of the day remember that most humans are very indecisive and love to complain. They're very hard to please, there's always people opposing, so no matter how great something looks in your eyes there's always some who's saying blah blah blah
55. mrochester (Posts: 549; Member since: 17 Aug 2014)
The only real problem with the Samsung phones is you get Android rather than iOS. The value tanks because of that.
64. Ahovking (Posts: 710; Member since: 03 Feb 2015)
Poeple buy iPhones because they are fair better..
look at how wasteful Samsung is...I’ll give you one example of how the iPhone and IOS is more efficient.. enabling its so called mid-ramged class to compete with wasteful high end toys.
The iPhone 6 with 1GB of RAM runs much faster than a similarly specced Android smartphone with 2 - 3 GB of RAM. And it all has to do with the fundamental difference in the way iOS and Android handle apps, features etc.
You see Android apps use Java, and need all the extra RAM to do something called garbage collection.
Garbage collection, is a process that triggers the recycling of memory once an Android app is done using it. Usually, this works pretty well on systems that have a lot of free RAM, but once you get a lot of different apps running, things start getting dicey.
As for iOS? The operating system doesn’t need all the extra memory associated with Java and Android, since it was designed to avoid this sort of garbage collection from scratch. It only needs the memory it’s using.

All we have to do is wait, and I'm sure it'll depreciate in just few months.
9. natypes (Posts: 1092; Member since: 02 Feb 2015)
Just in time for Verizon's new 'f you customers' plans with no subsidies. $1000 for a phone lmao ok.
Go ahead be the next HTC. Why do these companies keep doing stupid shyt? Who in the HELL is making these asinine decisions.
12. Scott93274 (Posts: 4605; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)
I imagine that carriers discontinuing subsidies on contracts will really hurt both Samsung and Apple as their products tend to be more expensive than the rest of the market. It'd be interesting to see if this forces them to lower prices.
47. jeroome86 (Posts: 1124; Member since: 12 Apr 2012)
I doubt they will. Now that Samsung is the face of Android they will follow Apples ways. HTC has the best build quality of Android but poor Camera and bad marketing has hurt the sales. LG peak with the G2 and drop off with the latest G4. Motorola has the best prices if you don't need the specs. Good phone for the non geeks.
25. TechieXP1969 (limited) (Posts: 10115; Member since: 25 Sep 2013)
Why do you need a subsidy? You pay more for a phone when you subsidize. Example, for an iPhone you pay 199.99 upfront and the rest is rolled into your contract for 24 months. For 24 months you pay $40 for a line. Do he math, the line is only $10 and they charge you $40 for a smartphone. That $30 extra is your phone cost, plus you pay extra for insurance.
That's $50. I did the math and when you actually bill the retail price of the phone in 24 equal payments and no money down, you save 8% with Verizon. Sure its not a huge saving, but its a save and you pay the phone off how you want. so if you want to pay it off sooner you can, something you cant do on contract.
I personally am glad version switched. Now I need no money down to get a new phone or tablet, and I pay less per month for the line even after I am done paying for the phone and I don't upgrade.
You're complaining about nothing. VZW doesn't have f you customer plans. It seems you are to dumb to understand the benefit.
32. Ruturaj (Posts: 1329; Member since: 16 Oct 2014)
Actually depends on plan.
Right now I am paying approx $36 for my line (unlimited text, minutes, around 3GB data). If I get phone on contract I have to pay $200 up front (assume we are talking about S6), $40 activation fee and $25 extra per month for 24 months. So if I get phone on contract I am paying $840 for phone, but if I get one on installments it will be just $685 + tax (just is because I am not paying activation fee or upfront amount, $685 is a big amount).
Previously I had a limited min, no text plan (20 cents per message) and 3GB data (was sufficient as per my needs) with phone every 2 year on contract price, I use to pay around $45 (just my line). So I used to pay $40 activation fee, $200 up front amount and $240 extra compared to my current plan. and Ta Da I used to get phone for $480.
35. natypes (Posts: 1092; Member since: 02 Feb 2015)
Yep, I'm "to dumb" lol. I can barely read your nonsensical post. I don't need a subsidy and haven't had a subsidized phone since the T-bolt. Many people do.
61. ibend (Posts: 4577; Member since: 30 Sep 2014)
if that the real price, forget about S6edge+..
just buy S6edge, and be happy with that
10. Neros (Posts: 1016; Member since: 19 Dec 2014)
So it costs the same as the s6 edge on release, but it offers bigger screen, batery, and more memory. It only proves that the base s6 edge was overpriced as hell.
15. natypes (Posts: 1092; Member since: 02 Feb 2015)
The S6 edge was $700 if I remember correctly. $799 tops for the 32gb version.
16. Pattyface (Posts: 1612; Member since: 20 Aug 2014)
What a stupid move if true. I knew it would be about 1k but hoped for better. Sammy is their own worse enemy
20. donfem (Posts: 646; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)
No one has forced you to buy have they? It is called "choice".
23. walkman800 (Posts: 113; Member since: 26 Aug 2014)
ahh, philosophers had written numerous books about illusion of choice and free will. I wanted to buy Nokia 1020 Lumia successor, but they scrapped it. So much about choice, who else offers 40 mp camera with xenon flash.
24. j2001m (Posts: 2941; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)
You joking right, always if the phone is sold in the UK for like £700 it cost $700 to buy in the USA, due to our vat and import charges, so do not make things up or go with the this crap post from pa
It's going to cost the same as the normal edge did in the uk
27. willard12 (Posts: 1677; Member since: 04 Jul 2012)
It will only be $799 in the US because the EU includes ad valorem tax in their prices. The S6 was 699 euro and $699 dollars when it came out. People can either buy it or they can buy something else so it shouldn't be a big deal. Or, Vertu may also be their on worst enemy. Also, were you really going to get an S6 Edge+ after days of commenting about your S6 Edge being a worthless and laggy POS?
26. hafini_27 (Posts: 888; Member since: 31 Oct 2013)
I don't expect it to be cheap but a grand for the base model is a big no.
29. TechieXP1969 (limited) (Posts: 10115; Member since: 25 Sep 2013)
I expected the costs to be 799 899 and 999 for 32, 64 and 128 respectively. Same price as the original S6 Edge depending on carrier. VZW is the lowest of all the US carriers at 699, 799 and 899 respectively for the different sizes.
So this device which is nearly the same size as the Note is being priced the same as the Note which also starts at the same price.
I wouldn't however call the S6 Edge Plus a penless Note as some has said because the Galaxy S and the Note have nothing in common other than brand name. The Note to me is an S with a Pen and more better features, but take the pen away its still a Note unless you remove the extras.
What all the fools here aren't considering is this. It costs Samsung nearly $300 to make the latest Galaxy devices. I think $280 was the last costs I recall seeing. That means the Note costs more do to the S-Pen licensing, even though Samsung owns a very small percentage of WACOM. I think it was 5%. So a phone that costs $300 to make being sold for 60% more is a fair deal IMO, consider it costs Apple $220 to make an iPhone and its being sold starting at $649 which is just over 3 times what it cost them to make it.
All these trolls complaining about costs? Look what you get for a phone that is 60% higher than the cost to make vs another than is a 200% price increase over what it costs to make.
Do the math. When taken into proper perspective, Samsung certainly isn't ripping you off for what you get. The Galaxy S has always offered nearly double everything vs the iPhone and yet sells for less money.
33. Ruturaj (Posts: 1329; Member since: 16 Oct 2014)
I guess you got the calculation wrong,
Note costs around $750 (t mobile) and manufacturing cost is $300, so retail price is 150% higher than cost to make, and margin is 60%
Iphone cost $650 and manufacturing cost is $200, so retail priceis 250% higher than cost to make and margin is around 70%.
57. mrochester (Posts: 549; Member since: 17 Aug 2014)
In terms of value for money, I'd definitely pitch the iPhone higher than any Samsung Android device. That the iPhone also happens to be supremely profitable for Apple too is just a bonus for them. It's a model we need more manufacturers to follow.
34. 27satz (Posts: 134; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)
Samsung S6 Edge+ $1000??? bulls**t.
Seeing the comments, People are more interested in Note 5 than S6 Edge+.
37. gazmatic (Posts: 795; Member since: 06 Sep 2012)
I remember when samsung galaxy were the cheap iphone imitations for people too broke to buy the real thing
now they have so much notoriety that they can out apple, apple
anybody that pays over $600 for a phone is an IDIOT
these phones cost $2-300 to make...
paying double the cost price is not a big deal but 3-4 times?
what are they, vertu?
38. Jason2k13 (Posts: 1214; Member since: 28 Mar 2013)
A lot of idiots here, Samsung as well as Apple has always been selling expensive flagship phones... it's like they want the flagship priced the same as the Moto G lol
39. Dodong (Posts: 31; Member since: 30 Jul 2015)
If that's the final pricing of this phone Samsung wouldn't sale s**t. There's a lot of good phone out there for less than half the price.
40. Loubielou (Posts: 508; Member since: 11 Jul 2012)
How can Samsung who just have to cut the prices of the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge then Charge to much for the S6 Edge Plus,Samsung have really gone over the Top with the pricing of there current phones,if this phone offered the Removable battery & Card Slot people might have given this phone a Chance,but with Galaxy S7 coming up what is the use of buying this phone,Motorola X Style Plus might be more Affordable and will offer the Card Slot,Loads will be leaving Samsung with them letting there current phones down,by not offering there Best Selling options loads have been used to,they are getting feed up with Samsung
52. Andrewtst (Posts: 631; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
Samsung selling expensive phone - True.
Apple selling expensive phone - True
Samsung phone no market value - True
Apple phone have market value - True
Samsung phone price heavy drop after 3 months - True
Apple phone price maintain even after 6 months - True
This is the differences between Samsung and Apple.
After my S6 Edge price drop like s**t by only 3 months, the worst I could said. This is a lesson. I am not going to buy S6 Edge Plus or Note 5 at launched anymore.
56. Ruturaj (Posts: 1329; Member since: 16 Oct 2014)
I have a some rules to buy phones
Apple iphone Buy in first 3 months after launch, price is not gonna drop till next phone is 1-2 month away
Apple ipad,ipod Buy on thanks giving from target (expect gift coupon)
Android phone Buy 3 to 6 month after launch, At 3rd month you get approx 20-25% off at 6th month almost 40-45%, after that price drop is minimal and next generation is launching soon.
I don't have any for other type of devices yet
58. mrochester (Posts: 549; Member since: 17 Aug 2014)
Android phones tend to be overpriced at launch to cash in on the suckers who are prepared to pay big bucks for a device that'll see a third of it's price wiped off within a few months. These Android OEMs will try to make as much out of these people as they possibly can before having to succumb to price drops to shore up demand.
None of that applies to Apple.
