Images of a Galaxy S6 edge Plus prototype sitting under a regular S6 edge pop up
Word on the street is that Samsung is prepping not one, but two new phablets for release in the next month or two. We, of course, have the Galaxy Note 5, typically released in September, but rumors have it the South Korea company is also working on a Galaxy S6 edge Plus variant, which is expected to feature a 5.5-inch (or larger) display.

This is not just empty rumors, or at least it would appear so judging by the number of CAD renderings and supposed prototype imagery that have leaked in the last month or so. Just today, serial leakster @OnLeaks, who has a splendid track record so far, teased three new images of the S6 edge Plus — two showing the phablet sitting under a regular S6 edge, and another giving us a look at what AnTuTu sees powering the unit. 

Consistent with rumors so far, the Galaxy S6 edge Plus is looking pretty much identical to the S6 edge, save for a displaced microphone hole and the larger body. Interestingly enough, the infrared blaster on the S6 edge seems to have failed to make the cut with the S6 edge Plus, so future buyers might not be able to control home electronics using the device. As for the specs captured by AnTuTu, they're true to what we've been told so far: a Quad HD (1440 x 2560) resolution display, an octa-core, 64-bit Exynos 7420 processor, and a Mali-T760 GPU from ARM. We've also heard a 16-megapixel main camera, a 3,700 mAh battery, and 32GB of non-expandable storage being mentioned in the past, but we obviously can't be sure that'll be the case.

Do you think Samsung will attack the phablet market with two separate devices that could easily end up cannibalizing sales of each other? Or do you reckon there'll be sufficient differentiating factors between the two to drive overall demand for Samsung phablets?

Uhm, if you are speaking about image nr.3, where you can see the blue S6 Edge--- I'm doubtful about it.
That might be the regular S6 Edge, because when looking at first image you can see the same blue S6 Edge being on top of a bigger gold S6 Edge, which is obviously the Plus model.

Maybe they switched the color variants of S6 Edge Plus for exactly that photo, but I still believe that's the regular S6 Edge.
Whatever, I won't be able to buy it anyways :D :(

Typical for Sammy: making fools of its consumers.

And what is wrong with that chip? The last time I check it's the best chip available right now. Should we call the exynos 7420 dated already?

I think you misunderstood the upper comment. He's lad to see E7420 instead of SD808 inside.

My s6 edge still lags when coming out of apps... Takes 5 to 6 seconds to render the home screen and things get bottle necked when trying to do multiple things at a time. It seems that things aren't optimized for the beefy processor and ram... Hopefully everything on the note 5 will be a lot smoother. I'd hate to have to go back to LG and sell my gear s...

I think you may have an issue with yours mate, i have no lag when pressing the recent apps button like some have said & yes it does SOMETIMES re-draw the homescreen but always under a second. Have you tried clearing the cache by doing the power button/volume/ & home button menu?

I believe any phone will lag under the right circumstances. My friend has an iPhone 6 Plus & with Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Cyber Dust, Pintrest, Google Plus & all his other apps, texts, & emails. It lags very badly, so no phone is impervious, it's just when a you have a million things communicating & using resources all at the same time, it will make anything lag.

It's just the nature of the beast.

Crazy thing is my note 4 never did that and I have the same setup as my note 4 did. Maybe I have a bad unit but the note never lagged or got bottle necked like my s6 edge does. I never touched the cache on the note 4, I would just shut it down probably twice out of the month. I do the same with my s6 edge but after a couple days it bogs down again... Optimization is the key and I just don't think it's optimized for the hardware...

Right I get that but like I said in my other response I didn't get that with my Note 4...

Did you ever try this on your Samsung Device:

If not it should speed up your device considerably. O.o

It doesn't look to have an IR blaster. No blaster, no buy.

In all seriousness, what do you use an IR Blaster for? I don't know why it's so important. Lately I keep reading that people are upset that the IR Blaster is not included.

I use it all the time with my cable box and tv. I don't have to worry about different remotes...

OK, that's kinda cool. I really only use my phone while I am out & about, when I get home I usually just put my phone down...

When I get hope I like to unplug & relax, I am usually not on my phone until the next day, or if I go out.

To me the IR blaster has to be the single best feature. Try its uses out, I think you'll be hooked.

Well after Samsung screwed me and other Note 4 owners by slow updates and no new TouchWiz for a flagship less than a year old. Guess what Sammy even though i like the S6 Edge plus and the Note 5 from the Leaks, i will not buy a Samsung phone again until you learn to treat your flagship customers right. I have been buying Samsung since 2010, no more.

Now i gotta see what's good enough out there, LG or HTC, probably the Next Nexus phone, although i feel like trying Windows phone 10, but im still afraid. Any idea, anyone?
