Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ are selling faster than the Note 4 and Note Edge (at least in Kore
Samsung earlier this month announced and launched the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, two extra-large Android smartphones (or phablets, if you prefer) that come to succeed last year's Note 4 and Note Edge. Of course, the S6 edge+ isn't a true successor to the Note Edge, since it doesn't have an S Pen stylus, but still: it's Samsung's newest extra-large handset to sport a curved display.

According to Korean publication Yonhap News, the Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ are off to a much better start in South Korea compared to the Note 4 and Note Edge. Reportedly, over 75,000 units of the Note5 and S6 edge+ have been sold in three days in Samsung's home country. Last year, at launch, only about 10,000 Note 4 and Note Edge units were sold daily. Apparently, the Note5 and S6 edge+ are helping Samsung control 70% of the South Korean mobile market.

For now, we don't know how well Note5 and S6 edge+ sales are going in the US and other markets, but we hope we'll find out soon. Meanwhile, check out our Galaxy Note5 review and Galaxy S6 edge+ review for more about Samsung's latest super-sized Android smartphones.
