Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (both for Sprint) show up at the FCC

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (both for Sprint) show up at the FCC
Earlier this week, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus variants that are likely made for AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile have all been spotted at the FCC. Today, Sprint's variants of the two handsets have also been approved by the FCC - so we should expect all four major US carriers to launch the upcoming smartphones at some point.

Sprint's Galaxy Note 5 carries the model number SM-N920P, while its Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is known as the SM-G928P. The P at the end of the two model numbers confirm that the handsets are Sprint-bound, since all of the carrier's recent Samsung devices have model numbers ending in P.

Both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus could be announced in the second half of August, though it's not clear exactly when they'll be available to buy. The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is expected to look like a larger S6 edge, sporting a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and being powered by a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor. The Galaxy Note 5 could feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, while being powered by the yet unannounced octa-core Exynos 7422 processor. Which of the two upcoming Samsung devices would you get?

I'm confused....one moment the S6 Edge Plus is powered by an Exynos chip, the same as in the S6/S6 Edge. Now they are saying the Qualcomm 808 chip. So which is it? Or did I miss something?

Sammy can't keep up with the demand. Exynos is too ambitious to be in every Galaxy device. Plus there could be hope removable storage will be back since it has Snapdragon powering the device.

They've said many times they belive the s6 edge to be posted by the 808 sane as the g4... The note 5 will be powered by a SIMILAR Exynos chip same speeds etc but a true octacore with HMP

The S6 Plus should have a SD Card slot since its using a Snapdragon so theres no excuse about the BS 2.0 Memory Controller crap.

Pa are making the normal error they make and going back to saying its 808 but it's the 7420

No removable battery then I guess I'll just upgrade my Note 3 to the Note 4.

Why Snapdragon 808? How are they going to call it "S6 edge plus" when SoC in S6 edge is much better than S6 edge plus?? That Adreno 418 GPU is worse than Adreno 430 or maybe even Adreno 420. I can't make any sense. =.=

Hahaha that's what you have to put up with if you like sd cards back, but no the plus will have an 7420 and the note 5 got 7422 Note 5 spec are 7422 CPU epop 4gb of Ddr4 ram linked to epop Very big battery but you will not be able to remove it but it's big Ufs hd, I hope the base will, be 64gb as there will not be an sd card reader S6 plus 7420 CPU Bigger battery than the s6 Same spec as the s6
