Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is expected to have these enhanced People Edge features
On August 13th, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ will be introduced along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. According to a published report, one of the new features on the Galaxy S6 edge+  takes the "People Edge" that allows you to store up to five contacts on the edge of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, and adds a second similar page for apps. This way, opening one of your five favorite apps is as easy as a quick tap on the edge of the glass.

The "People Edge" also has been updated for the Galaxy S6 edge+. Clicking on a contact will give you six options: calling, video chatting, messaging, emailing, sending a picture, and sending an emoticon. The Galaxy S6 edge allows you to send a message, make a call or send an email.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ recently had its specs listed by a Middle East retailer and the phone will feature a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD screen. The Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC is under the hood, with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside with 32GB/64GB of internal storage. A 16MP camera adorns the back while a 5MP snapper graces the front of the phone, ready to take selfies and handle video chats. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

While it looks pretty certain that the model will be unwrapped this coming Thursday, we could see the Galaxy S6 edge+ released on August 21st. We're in the home stretch, hold on!


Thanks for the tip!

Dude, trust me. With the size of the bezels, it's going to match a 6 incher. Still stoked to get it though.

Being mostly an iPhone user for so long, it's not even an issue. Even with my galaxy devices, I never swapped batteries and sparingly used SD.

i had iPhones and i always ran out of memory and it ran slow so i stayed away from those after the 5 but sd is a nice option cause i switch them out and if something ever happens to my phone i have the sd i could pull out i don't like cloud storage don't really trust it.

That's understandable. I've always gone for the largest capacity, since it's non expandable and just manage it best I can.

Either you ad the 16 gig version or you seriously download every movie possible. What in the world do you keep on your phone to possibly need more than 64/128 gigs? Dude, get a music streaming service if it music. Put movies in the cloud. How often are you watching movies on your phone? As far as games, how many games are you playing at once?

Not sure how big your cloud is, but 128GB of movies/music in the cloud would cost you money. Not to mention mobile data. Not to mention speed drops when connection is bad. I use my phone to play music in my car (Appmode Unchained) and 128GB card is filled with music. No need to stream s**t. Also putting games/apps on a SD is not recommended, but for media it's fast enough (faster than streaming anyway).

I don't have Samsung and despite having a 100GB cloud myself, I don't like to use it for music. And my mobile data isnt unlimited.

The sd card will hurt but there's always this option to put on your keys....

This works y faster than a normal sd card, that also linked to ufs gives very faster transfer speeds even when using USB 2.0 on the phone

Too big! I have a better option. This is what I use -http://www.amazon.com/Leef-microSD-microUSB-Connector-Android/dp/B00J2D7R20/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1439309033&sr=8-1&keywords=leef+otg

Smaller and 1/2 the cost and does the same thing.

All that is is an adapter. That doesn't come with a micro sd card. That's another $13 at least (and that price is for a 32GB micro sd card).

This still isn't enough to justify paying extra money for an edge model. Yeah it looks awesome, but until Sammy adds some real features or eliminates the flat models, it will remain yet another classic Samsung gimmick

Do the math because you're looking at it wrong

iPhone 6 vs S6 Edge
16GB vs 32GB - 649 vs 699
64GB vs 64GB - 749 vs 799
128GB vs 128GB - 849 vs 899

1.2/8MP/2.2 cameras vs 5MP/16MP/1.9 cameras and the S6 has more camera features

1GB of DDR3 RAM vs 3GB DDR4 RAM
1.4GHZ dualcore vs dual 2GHZ QUADS
750p vs 1440p
4.7" vs 5.1"
1800mah vs 2500 mah
0%-100% charging time is 2 hours vs 90 mins
Apple Pay only works with NFC vs Samsung Pay which works with NFC and MagStrip

I could go one. But for $50 of a higher price, I am getting more than $50 worth of advantages, like default apps, 100% customization and more.

The Galaxy S can do everything the iPhone can do, does most of it better and yet the iPhone can't do many things the S6 can yet it costs more depending on country.
