Galaxy S6 Plus leaks on video, confirming it's a larger version of the S6 edge
If you ever thought that the rumored Galaxy S6 Plus was a bad joke, created out of someone's fantasy, think again, as 'tis the season of the Plus sizes. One Marques Brownlee, of YouTube gadget reviewing fame, has gotten his mitts on the Plus versions of both the HTC, and Samsung flagships for the season, providing us with an exclusive look of the S6 Plus in the process.

Well, it looks just like the "regular" S6 edge, curved screen on the sides and all, but notably larger, for those who can't satisfied with a 5.1-incher anymore. It is a smart move on part of Samsung, as Android's screen diagonals are getting larger and larger on average, so once you try, say, a 5.5" handset, it becomes harder to go back to a 5" one, no matter what's stuffed inside, or how good it looks. 

A Galaxy S6 Plus would fill that gap in perceptions, and keep the bench warm while the inevitable Note 5, with even larger screen, arrives. The S6 Plus is expected to sport a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, just like the LG G4, but the rest will likely stay the same - a 16 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras, as well as 32 GB of storage from the get-go.

Yes its true, I have a Mega with 6.3" screen and I can't go smaller at all I'll even go bigger so wtf are they doing about the millions of Mega users? Also, all phones need to have large amp chargers like 5 amps. Then when we use google navigator we don't drain the battery as we are driving even though its plugged in. We should be able to use as many apps as we'd like and the phone will still keep charging at the maximum rate. Irritating. While I'm at it don't make the battery and memory inaccessible to me. If I wanted an Apple I'd have bought one. I stopped buying HTC when they started that crap and I'll drop any others that try.

'One Marques Brownlee, of YouTube gadget reviewing fame'.......Yeah I don't think MKBHD really needs an introduction to an average PA reader.

The only "Marques" I know are the ones in the daily crime reports. Why do ghetto people continue to used ghetto names that they mostly make up ????? These people refuse to just be American, use American names, assimilate, etc. Shaking my head.

Hey moronic racist, take your racist bs to the foxnews website please. And that is an American name, that name is used here more than anywhere else. Daily crime reports? Theres just as many johns as there is Marques on them. How dumb are you? And your more un-American because you refuse to understand America isn't an "everybody is the same" type of country, go to North Korea is that's what you want. Its made up of every culture and race on Earth, youre the one that needs to assimilate... And sorry buddy but hes not ghetto, hes a student at a university that is already more successful than youll ever be. He just test drove a BMWI8... Because they wanted his publicity. So no hes not ghetto. Man youre an idiot. Leave this website please

The more I think about this comment the more mad I get. Refuse to be American? What the heck does that even mean? Seriously whats your view on what American is? Please tell all of us so we can be just as dumb as you are. Hes living the American dream, not making racist dumb comments on websites. Hes one of the most famous tech reviewers... Explain how hes not American and ghetto? Please give us your vast knowledge... Im sure your small view is exactly what American should be

Never knew you were a stereotypically racist idiot. Thanx for letting us know.

Being racist isn't considered cool. You can reply, but you'll sound like a kid on the internet having a rant. Funny how I'm a teen and I'm miles ahead of you in both maturity and respect. But, instead of dishing you, ill give you a prayer.

I would love an s6 edge plus but why the six core processor, maybe they want to leave the exynos with the note 5 edge?, (if that will happen)

This S808 is a total unneeded crap chip! Time spent on this shameful SoC should have been spent on the 810 to manufacture it better and make it in a better state that what it currently is now!

I don't understand why Qualcomm didn't include the Adreno 430 GPU alongside the Snapdragon 808. There would not have been drastic performance decreases than the current configuration of the S808/Adreno 418. Small performance drops are not bad but the current configuration leaves little to be desired, especially with them being naive about the overheating found in the S810.

Let's thank Daniel P. for another terribly-written article. Aside from countless grammar errors, he managed to place seven commas in one of his sentences. SEVEN. Why bother writing in English, Daniel? You might as well have just written in Bulgarian. The outcome would have been the same.

I wish it would cost the same amount as the S6 Edge. Being bigger means bigger battery, but I may not be able to afford a higher price point.

i think this is fake the OG S6 Edge/S6's screengrid can be change from 4x4 to 4x5 and 5x5 and that's exactly what you see on the video and the other photo of the back? it also look exactly the same as the s6 edge, including the size of the camera, sensors, flash... etc compared to the rest of the phone
