Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus and Samsung Galaxy A8 certified in Singapore


A trio of Samsung Galaxy products have been certified in Singapore by the country's Infocomm Development Authority. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus and the Samsung Galaxy A8 are listed by the agency, which is charged with supporting innovative technology in the country.

Of the three models, only the Samsung Galaxy A8 has been officially announced by Samsung at present. This is the slimmest handset produced by Samsung to date. At its thinnest, the phone measures just 5.9mm thin. It also features a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display that has a 1080 x 1920 resolution. A 64-bit Snapdragon 615 is under the hood, equipped with an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage (12GB is available to the user). Those requiring additional memory can access the 128GB micro SD slot. The back to front camera combo weighs in at 16MP/5MP and the generator keeps humming thanks to a 3050mAh battery. Android 5.1 is pre-installed with TouchWiz on top.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to feature top-shelf specs and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus has been rumored to be a 5.7-inch version of the popular Samsung Galaxy S6 edge handset. Both models could be unveiled during the middle of next month and might feature similar specs. The important thing to take away from this is that the Galaxy Note 5 and the rumored Galaxy S6 edge Plus are now closer to seeing the light of day. In fact, with a government agency listing the Galaxy S6 edge Plus, it looks like the phone is real. Of course, we'd prefer to hear the official word from Samsung before Paul Revere-ing the phone throughout the world.

Thanks for the tip, Melvin!
