Full Galaxy S6 Edge+ specs sheet and prices leak, it won't be cheap

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 announcement is fast approaching, and with it the crescendo of leaks, renders, actual design shots, and specs galore. About the only thing left is price and release date, and we already have a hint about both. Samsung will allegedly release the enlarged version of the S6 edge a week after Thursday on preorder, and the price bandied about for Europe was tipped to start from EUR 799.99 for the basic 32 GB model. Well, that pricing got confirmed today, as a Romanian e-tailer already listed the phone in its ordering database, complete with the full specs of the device. 

The new dual-edged phablet from Samsung will apparently come costing the equivalent of $1012 for the 32-gigger, and about a Benjamin more for the 64 GB version. As far as specs go, the phone indeed seems to mimic the Note 5 sheet, save for the eventually smaller battery: a 5.67 Super AMOLED Quad HD display, covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 in curved edges, an octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset with Mali-T760MP8 graphics, and... surprise, surprise... 4 GB RAM. The rear camera is listed as a 16 MP module, while the front shooter is shown as 5 MP. The only ho-hum field is the 3000 mAh battery, whereas the Note 5 is rumored to have a larger one, but we'll believe that when we see the official specs.

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. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Motorola-Droid-Turbo-2-Samsung-Galaxy-Note-5-and-Galaxy-S6-Edge-Plus-reportedly-coming-to-Verizon_id72407

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.

$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.

Everything in is more expensive in Europe and Australia is because wages are higher so they can rip off consumers even more.

Wait two to three months and the price will be halved.

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.

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.

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 !

$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.

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?"

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.

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.

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
