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?

Why calling this S6 edge plus, samsung filed for a name S6 note.

The Note 5 will be called S6 Note. Having the S6 and S6 edge in stores the Note "5" naming suggests an older model (S5 generation) for those customers not familiar with Samsung models. To make it less confusing from now on the S and the Note line will have the same numbering...like S7, S7 edge and S7 Note for next year.

What's up with you and hating Android, is there any reason to say why you hate it? Or are you just being an ass

A Samsung rep shoved an Android phone in my arse when I was young, so from that day on I have sworn to hate Android forever.

This must mean the Note 5 will have removable battery and SD card. Just asking where is PA news on IOS MAJOR security issues that I've seen on other sites last 3 days. Also on OS X but as its PA i would expect you to show the Apple lads thats the have issues too. Just saying

That's not for sure. They could easily abandon those 2.

If it's got sd card, then no ufs 2.0 and that means big lag after a month of use and a slowing down of the phone,ufs 2.0 does not work with sd cards, this is because sd card slow the bandwith down big time on the phone and ufs needs fast bandwith I.e. Why the sd card was removed, I.e. This is not a cash in like Apple phones

Your comment makes no sense at all. The SD doesn't need to be as fast as internal storage. Just as eMMC is not as fast as RAM and RAM is not as fast as cache. When used correctly, there should be no issues. People using it to store apps are using it wrong. The SD does come really handy for storing big music collections, videos and pictures.

Not a bad move by Samsung. If you want a stylish bigger and slim device you go with the S6 Edge Plus. If you want better productivity (S-Pen, bigger battery) you go with the S6 Note/Note 5.

Eh.. I don't think this design looks good for a bigger forum.. They took the 6+ route on this one.

I think it's a mistake for Samsung to offer a S6+, and a Note. If they want a S6+, just rename the note.

I still thing Samsung should stop the production of this phone. S Series and the Note Series should be apart. Could it be the Note 5 Edge variant?

Samsung has started falling love with bezels. The note 3's dimension was 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3 mm, instead the note 4 came with 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5 mm. The s5 was 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm and the s6 came with 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm. And now the dimension for the s6 edge plus above is even bigger than that of the note 4 but the screen will be 5.5". It looks like they are increasing the top and bottom bezels in every new device.

That's just a blown up edge, it'll look a little different.

thought Samsung learned from it past , but it seems that they flooding the market again with all sort of variants phones ...they just cant held themselves not to release a new phone every day ....better invest in supporting their products better and publicity then releasing new phones every day that will drive people crazy after a few months cause of the lags, bugs and lack of support of new software

I feel like the S6 Edge Plus is more of a second edition Galaxy Note Edge. I could be wrong. (yeah I know that the Edge Plus probably will not feature an S-Pen)

I believe Samsung is tad bit late with this release. This may eat into their Note 5 sales.

With all that extra space, they can surely add a microSD card slot, right? RIGHT?!?!?

Snapdragon 808 instead of improved Exynos 7420? Abd yet they call it "plus"?? Are they stupid or what? Hope it's fake.
