So a certain company doesn't try and sue them for the "+" in the name would be my guess.

Yea I know but suing a company just for "+" or "Plus" is funnny considering they have been doing it since 2011 or even before (Galaxy S Plus), 2012 HTC One X.

Well that didn't stop Apple last time

Agreed. But remember, they tried to sue Amazon for something as generic as "App Store". They lost that one, but you get the picture.

App Store℠ is trademarked by Apple. "+" or "Plus" is not.
20. meanestgenius (Posts: 11575; Member since: 28 May 2014)
Apple still withdrew the lawsuit after their previous claim of false advertising was thrown out. They knew they wouldn't win on something so generic.
Next, we are going to see Apple try and patent a rectangle. Oh wait....

I still do not see a reason for Samsung to make a Galaxy S6 EDGE+ when they have the Note series. I hope one does not canabalize the sales of the other.
15. TerryTerius (Posts: 1782; Member since: 10 Apr 2014)
The way I understand it, they're doing this because they didn't have a way to make a dual edged note that still had enough room for an s-pen.
Which either means you will have the Galaxy Note 5, serving alongside the s6 EDGE+... Or in a decidedly Samsung move, they may have another note edge with a single curve like the previous one alongside the regular note 5 and S6 Edge+. Either way, I wouldn't be surprised.

Agreed. I just hope it doesn't canabalize sales, being that they will have two high end phablets on the market.
Although, I suppose a good number of Note buyers do so for the S Penn, and the S6 EDGE + won't have one.

no way, now I need to choose, compare, think... Note5 and this one

I think it's a shame of samsung to do something like this. Samsung had the best flagship release dates imo.
1 flagship phone and 1 flagship phablet a year. Also im not sure about the screen size as that is just note sized.

Galaxy S6 Plus and Galaxy S6 edge Plus...just wow... like we all know both Samsung and Apple steal from each other (Samsung mostly in the early days, Apple mostly "android wise" now days) but its like they both have just given up on covering the fact they cant be bothered hiding the fact they got the idea from Apple.
You have the most popular high-end Android phone... and even tho you named a phone plus in the past, its now claimed by Apple.. why follow Apple and go "!BACK!" to plus? why not something new and fresh like Galaxy S6 Note and Galaxy S6 edge Note or Galaxy S6 L and Galaxy S6 L.........If they do is regardless if Samsung did it first, the phone names will constantly be attacked for its name..Not a good start.
It also seems like Samsung is trying to ride on Apple success with the "PLUS" name... seems real Lazy.

Until you consider the fact that Samsung has been using plus in the titles of their phones since 2010 with the Galaxy S Plus.
Unless you're saying that Apple somehow deserves credit for time travel and phones that used the plus addendum to their titles four years before Apple ever did.
Granted, that wasn't for a larger version of the Galaxy S. But the point is valid all the same.

You meant Samsung time traveled and stole, right?
16. TerryTerius (Posts: 1782; Member since: 10 Apr 2014)
.... No, I dont. Because they did it before Apple in the first place. That doesn't even make sense. Unless you were mocking the typical Apple fanboy response.
27. Ruturaj (Posts: 1337; Member since: 16 Oct 2014)
Yes I know Samsung did it, and if someone says Samsung stole it then Samsung deserves credit of time travel because they came to 2014 (from 2011) saw what apple is going to use, went back and used.
In your example you said apple twice. "Unless you're saying that Apple somehow deserves credit for time travel and phones that used the plus addendum to their titles four years before Apple ever did."

Did you bother reading my post?
I acknowledge Samsung Did it first.. but then dropped it.. Years later Apple picked it up and now using it as part of its flagship names... So why Go back to "Plus"?
its in their past.. it just looks like Sammy is following Apple, after dropping "Plus" now adopting it again due to Apple success with it.

Samsung has at least 10 devices with the Plus, here is some of them.
Galaxy S PLus
Galaxy S II Plus
Galaxy S5 Plus
Galaxy Ace Plus
Galaxy Star Plus
Galaxy Mega Plus

Again try again Fagdroid.. I acknowledge Samsung Did it first.
But what would happen if Apple used Note to replace to "Plus"? The phone name would be constantly attacked.. its lazy and it makes apple seem it has ran out of ideas and just following Samsung.
This is making Samsung look lazy.

Samsung sucks a$$ for this one. They bring out the s6 edge with beauty, guts, and terribl battery life...now a plus is coming. A lotta people will be putting their edge on Craigslist, and I'm one of em. Had they released both at the same time, no way would I choose the smaller one.
23. Neros (Posts: 1016; Member since: 19 Dec 2014)
Well if they use sd 808, I wouldn't even bother tbh. Either we get full specs of the s6 + bigger screen and battery or we say no to the s6+. I also hope there will be an ordinary version without the edge.
26. darkkjedii (Posts: 21292; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
I hope it's the exact same design language.
