Motorola Droid Turbo 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus reportedly coming to Verizon

Motorola Droid Turbo 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus reportedly coming to Verizon
Not long ago, we heard that a Motorola Droid Turbo 2 was coming soon to Verizon - this makes perfect sense, as the original Droid Turbo is almost 1 year old. Now, the Droid Turbo 2 (which is, of course, an unannounced device) was spotted on a list of upcoming Verizon smartphones that should be sold at some point via Costco. Moreover, the list also mentions Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which are expected to be officially unveiled next week, on August 13.

What's not clear is when Verizon is planning to launch these three Android handsets. The Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus might go on sale shortly after their announcement in select markets, but this doesn't mean that US carriers will also be ready to release them. As for the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, we don't even know when this is supposed to be announced. In any case, the new Droid could be available starting October the latest (since last year's Droid Turbo was released in October).

Verizon will certainly release plenty of other interesting smartphones before the end of the year, but the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus are likely going to be among the carrier's best offerings. Do you plan to get any of them?

With reports earlier today suggesting that the Note 5 is indeed coming with a Micro SD card slot, this actually makes sense why they would only have just 32GB for the Note 5.

This will be all internal like the GS6 and GS6 edge no memory card slot. . The same will go for the S6 EDGE+

Good point, might be the case.

That's the impression I'm getting from the latest leaks. SD slot on the Note 5 but not the Edge+. It makes so little sense for a device like the Note, which already has a slot for the S-Pen, not to support MicroSD, but we'll see.

Many people including myself are NOT buying the S6, S6 Edge or upcoming Note 5 due to the stolen key features of the removable battery and SD card expansion. I suggest many voice their displeasure by writing to Samsung headquarters at: 95, Samsung 2-ro, Giheung-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do, Korea, 446-811 You can also email then at: foundry@samsung.com However, I do strongly recommend writing them via postal mail as physical letters can't be 'just deleted' and thus would get more attention. I have written myself already. The current USPS international letter rate is $1.42. Not much to spend in order to voice a great displeasure. Furthermore, would be much appreciated if this was copied and pasted to many tech blogs / forums / etc. A great thanks to anyone that does this (and of course to whom writes Samsung as well).

Where do you think Samsung gets the recycled paper for its devices box and manuals? Your letter goes straight to the shredder and gets reconstituted in to the materials for them to earn just a glimmer of redemption in some tree huggers mind so they don't feel soo bad about the device that they purchased from Samsung... If you think that Samsung gives a dogs bowl-movement about what you think then your just fooling yourself... Samsung will continue selling devices without SD card readers and removable batteries, despite your displeasure, for as long as they continue to produce a profit...

Not just my displeasure. And what goes around comes around (not just recycled paper formed into a 'new' box...but with a hurting bottom line).

With the proliferation of cellular networks and WiFi hotsopts the SD card has been given up by more OEMs, a sacrifice for performance and device reliability. The consumer has spoken on removable batteries. Consumers would rather purchase slimmer devices with premium materials included in the construction rather than a device with a removable battery. Given the capabilities of quick charge and wireless charging most people don't want or need a removable battery any more. If you want an SD card reader then go forth my friend and buy a device that still has one or purchase a micro USB to SD card reader, if you want a removable battery again buy a device that has one or a portable battery that can be plugged in to the phone rather than post the same tired comment on every article that has the slightest tie in to Samsung or their products. Really want to make Samsung listen tell them with your money and don't purchase their products, but as it stands now you are in the minority with what you want....

Maybe let's wait till he S6 Edge and Note 5 get official announcements before leading everybody off that cliff? There's voicing concern to help a company maintain a focus and understanding on what users want, and then there is just entitlement...

You wouldn't be wanting to insert an SD card full of stolen apps, would you? Just curious...

No. And the removable battery is far more important to me, personally as 128gb internal is enough. But the other feature still couldn't hurt. Also trying to speak for most.

So even if the battery is over 4000 (100% on f, and it's up to the USA networks what they like) Is that going to stop you

Hopefully the Turbo 2 will have a micro SD slot like its Moto cousins.
