Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus rumored to come with a 3000mAh battery

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus rumored to come with a 3000mAh battery
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.

I wish they would use the Exynos 7420, but the bigger battery is definitely a plus.

If this will have a good battery backup or SOT just like my Note2, then I should have an upgrade already..

I went to BB yesterday and checked out the S6 Active. The thickness of the phone is not bad at all. I don't know why Samsung can't make a regular S6 with a 3,500 mAh battery. I wish these stupid companies would stop chasing thinness all the time.

the sad thing is it's the consumers who are pushing companies to thin phones....because sadly no matter how good the phone is if it's not a shiny metal strip or a glass plate it won't get any attention.

If this phone becomes a reality, I will definitely be buying one!

Agreed! The S6 Edge is a beautiful phone, but the battery is lacking a bit.

Too true. Watching youtube videos on this phone does not do it justice. You have to see it to truly experience it's beauty. The screen looks like it's poping right out at you with it's sharpness and insane detail. The colors look so beautiful, puts all previous AMOLED types to shame.

I don't like idea of using 808 instead of exynos. So I will pass this one.

LOL indeed at that 808 instead of exynos. I'm like, really?

While I haven't heard anything bad about the 808, and it is clearly capable, I don't understand that move either. The Exynos chip is certainly better (GS6 vs G4 for example).

Yeah, more S6 clones? *inserts sarcasm here*
