Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus could sport a 5.5-inch screen, new render shows up


Briefly spotted earlier this month in a video, the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus is supposed to be a super-sized version of the regular Galaxy S6 edge (which, as you may know, sports a 5.1-inch screen, and is currently available in many markets around the world).

@OnLeaks (a reliable source if we look at its previous leaks) today posted what's reportedly a render of the S6 edge Plus - see above - while also sharing the handset's dimensions: 154.45 x 75.80 x 6.85 mm. This suggests that the upcoming Galaxy could have a 5.5-inch display, not a 5.7-inch one (as previously rumored). Even if the screen size may not be accurate, the S6 edge Plus is obviously taller and wider than the regular S6 edge, which measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7 mm.

Different size aside, it's said that the features of the S6 edge Plus will be largely similar to those of the original S6 edge, though the newer model might be powered by a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor instead of Samsung's own Exynos Octa 7420. The Galaxy S6 edge Plus could also become Samsung's first handset to feature support for RAW photography (but this should come to the S6 and S6 edge, too, at some point).

It's said that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus will be released in the third quarter of the year - which means July the earliest, or September the latest. We assume the handset will be a bit more expensive than the regular S6 edge, which is already one of the most expensive smartphones currently on the market (we're talking about normal smartphones here, not luxury ones dressed in gold or other precious metals). Who's interested?
