Realistic-looking dummy of the Galaxy S6 EDGE+ compared to the Galaxy Note 4

Realistic-looking dummy of the Galaxy S6 EDGE+ compared to the Galaxy Note 4
So far, we've heard a number of reports that the Galaxy Note line may not get a curved-screen unit this year. Instead, whispers say that the expected Galaxy S6 EDGE+ will come to fulfill customers' needs for edgy phablets, while the Note 5 will be the only 2015 phone to bear the signature S-Pen stylus.

Now, as far as hardware goes, while the Note 5 is rumored to bear a turbo-powered Exynos 7422 SoC and 4 GB of RAM, reports claim that the Galaxy S6 EDGE+ will copy the specs of the regular S6 edge – Exynos 7420 and 3 GB of RAM.

In terms of design, the curvy phablet is expected to look exactly like the “normal” one, only inflated up to size in order to accommodate a 5.7” screen. We've already seen possible cases, and even a dummy unit that manufacturers ship out to case makers so they can start working on the accessories. Now, how about a few photos of an actual S6 EDGE+, compared to the Galaxy Note 4 that we are all familiar with?

In all honesty, the source does claim that what we see below is actually a dummy of the curved phablet. However, it's a pretty sophisticated one, and it looks quite convincing. So, if you happen to let out a drop of drool or two while looking at the pictures – don't worry, it's a common reaction.

Now, as far as when we will actually be able to see the new top-shelf Samsung phablets, curiously, it may be much sooner than the expected September date, as various sources say that an August 12 launch date is very possible.

Beautiful, but far from practical with that slippery back.

Metal is more slippery IMO!

It won't be once you put a case on it. Right? I to don't like the dual glass concept, as I also didn't like it on other phones I've had that had the same design; but it feels nice and looks much color with the way Samsung has done it. Thank goodness it GG4, as videos have shown it can take a pretty good licking before it stops ticking. Though I hate phone cases, this is the first time I've paid almost $1000 for a phone; so I made sure to have one this time. I usually use a Maximum Zagg on my devices so I don't have to use cases, but Zagg doesn't have one as of last I checked for the S6 Edge. But once in a while, I pops it out the case just so I can touch it. The design is mesmerizing vs any other phone I have owned and it is just a dream to look at. Though I still have plastic on both sides to prevent scratches, it still feels so awesome to hold naked in hand with no case. A bigger version? A frikkin bonus!!!! Even tho based on renders the Note 5 looks like a backwards S6 Edge, it too will be a beastly dream to hold. I can't wait. Aug can't come soon enough just so I can touch them.

I'm exactly. The same, I like to take my s6 out of its case to marvel at how nice it spooks and premium it feels, much prefer this over the old, cheap plastic builds of yesteryear. No more creaminess!!!

Obviously you are yet to hold the S6 or S6 Edge. I have the S6 Edge and my wife and brother have the regular S6. We are FORCED to use cases, it's not a matter of choice as it was when i had the Note 3, 4 and S5. On previous Galaxy models the faux leather back cover was grippy and stands pretty well against scratches. And it's totally different with the S6.

Yes it is. The iPhone 4a were too.

My S6 edge is slippery as hell, but I take that consequences over the beautiful design and craftmanships.

Samsung had a chance to build on the useful edge that the note 4 edge possessed. I like the look of my s6 edge but it's not really that functional like the note 4edge is. If they would have made the edges like that on the 6+ it would have been a killer device!

Well the edge just isn't large enough for it to be anymore than a cosmetic design concept over the regular S6. The Note Edge has a much wider edge with room for the features it offers. But I haven't seen any devs actually make solid use of the idea. If Apple had done this, OMG it would have had 200 uses by now because the devs would have plastered even the most crappiest apps. For me personally, I didn't like the app icons being on the edge itself. It looks cool, but it just didn't sway me into choosing it over the regular Note 4. What I did like is when playing games, when you get notifications, they would roll on the edge and not get on the screen and block my view. The Yahoo ticker is lame. I would have preferred if someone would make an RSS for the Edge so I can scroll tech articles and similar.

Yeah there could have been so much more done with the edge on the note 4 edge but it was definitely functional. On another note it looks like the release date is going to be on the 21st...
