S7 edge and Note 5 score exclusive Weather Channel app with edge alerts and smart alarm
The Weather Channel is one of the most popular rain or shine forecasting services there are, that is why it's somewhat exciting to find out that it has teamed up with Samsung on exclusive software for some of the top-shelf Galaxy line members, as part of the "Made for Samsung" project that the company announced back at the CES. Your Galaxy S7 edge, S6 edge+, and the Note 5 are all getting a combination of tailored weather app, widgets, edge alerts and unique alarm, courtesy of The Weather Channel.

The so-called Smart Weather Wakeup is perhaps the most intriguing of the new options, as it will wake you up a bit earlier than scheduled if it has started raining outside, to give you time to dress accordingly. Even more prep time will be allocated if it has started snowing while you slept, so "smart" is a fitting word for this new alarm. 

The two phones will flexible displays here will also get edge alerts for extreme weather, while all will be able to set custom wallpapers for within the app. Last but not least, the new Weather Channel piece of kit comes with its own floating shortcuts. To get the exclusives, head over to the Galaxy Apps store on your S7 edge, S6 edge+ or Note 5, and search for the Weather Channel offering.

The S6

No. As a user of s6 I cam safely say it's not that. This over has bigger side bezel and squarer on the corners. It looks more like the s5, but with some of s6.

it's an S5. I can tell by the bezels. The psuedo plastic chrome sticks out.

It's the S7 of some variation. The speaker grill isn't black like the S7 but I don't know if all versions of the S7 have black speaker grills. It's definitely not the Note 5. The bezels are not the right ratio. Maybe an S7 render.

So even more fragmentation for Android, now 3rd party apps only run on specific Oems?

More hype. 1. THEY ARE NOT FLEXIBLE DISPLAYS! 2. How does this actually use the edge? The icon shown is bigger than the bent bit
