It looks like an increasing number of rumors regarding the allegedly-upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus
keep surfacing online. Today, a new report from Sammobile quotes insider sources according to which the upcoming Samsung handset will be 151 mm tall and 73 mm wide. Furthermore, the Galaxy S6 edge
Plus is said to include a 3000mAh battery.
A previous rumor claimed
that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus will measure 154.45 x 75.80 x 6.85mm, hinting that the smartphone will come with a 5.5-inch display. This new report from Sammobile contradicts the dimensions mentioned above, suggesting that the HW dimensions are actually closer to 151 x 73 mm.
The original Galaxy S6 edge
, a handset that integrates a 5.1
-inch display, measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7 mm. At these slightly larger rumored dimensions of 151 mm in height and 73 mm in width, it wouldn't be entirely impossible for the Galaxy S6 edge Plus to feature a 5.5-inch display as previously rumored
. Remember that the Galaxy Note 4
, which integrates a 5.7-inch display, measures 153.5 x 78.6 mm.
This new report doesn't mention the thickness of the upcoming handset. Although the sources claim that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus will come with a 3000mAh battery, a slight upgrade from the 2600 mAh battery of the Galaxy S6 edge, the larger footprint would be enough to accommodate a larger battery without an increase in thickness.
According to previous rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, 32GB of integrated storage space (likely the same UFS 2.0 storage technology as on the Galaxy S6), a 16MP primary camera with OIS, and a 5MP secondary shooter on the front.
In the lack of any concrete evidence (a leaked benchmark result would be very nice to have at this point), it's impossible to tell which of these rumors will turn out to be accurate, so make sure to be skeptical of these rumored specs and dimensions.
