S6 edge Plus tipped to be 'Note 5 without a stylus,' both pegged for August 13 unveiling

S6 edge Plus tipped to be 'Note 5 without a stylus,' both pegged for August 13 unveiling
The grand Note 5 unveiling has been indeed pulled a few weeks forward, it seems, as yet another Korean source now confirms that the phablet is expected to arrive in August, alongside the "Note 5 without a stylus" - Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge Plus

In fact, the tangible specs differences between the two are very few, if we count out the S Pen Stylus, of course. One of these is be the amount of RAM - 4 GB for the Note 5, and 3 GB for the S6 edge Plus, as well as the battery capacity, which on the Note 5 is said to be 4100mAh, versus 3000 mAh on the S6 edge Plus, though this one sounds rather fishy. The rest will stay the same, tips the source - a 5.7" Quad HD Super AMOLED display on both, Exynos 7422/7420, and a 16 MP camera with optical image stabilization.

So, when exactly are these two planning to show their faces for the world to see? The source tips August 13 as the day for the grand unveiling in New York, while before we heard that it will be August 12th. Close enough, though, so something unorthodox might indeed happen this hot summer, and it seems destined to occur just three weeks from now. The only thing left to wait for now is the actual official Samsung invitation, which should be arriving any day now, if the Note 5 and S6 edge Plus are indeed arriving mid-August

Yes if rumors are true note 5 will be beast but boring. cuz most of it is blown up version of S6 with stylus. just like M8 to M9. though Samsung is big company with great camera.

NO 4GB RAM = NO need new Note NO SD slot = NO need new Note NO removable battery = NO need new Note NO Infrared blaster = NO need new Note NOTE 5 without 4GB RAM , INFRARED blaster , removable battery , micro sd slot is real failure

It is none of your business and you know nothing about these things. I can copy if I want to.

Nothing special here, most of the specs are similar to note 4 with minor improvements.

I guess that's the reason why they decided to call it 'S6 Edge Plus' instead of 'Note 5 Edge'.

Or how about Note 5 Neo?

I'm hoping for a Neo with smaller 5.2" screen with high end specs and stylus of course.

So the snapdragon 808 rumor proved to be false for the Edge+
