Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is official: the super-sized Galaxy S6 edge
Hardware-wise, we're once again looking at an Exynos 7420 SoC, driving the mains alongside 4GB of LPDDR 4 RAM. Memory capacity choices are the usual as well - there are 32GB and 64GB storage variants available. Moreover, the Galaxy S6 edge+ uses the dual edges as a shortcut from any screen to users’ top contacts and apps. ‘Apps edge’ allows users to access their favorite apps by just swiping the edge display, while ‘People edge’ helps users quickly find their favorite contacts and send messages, or give a call directly from any screen.
SideSync 4.0 support is included as well, offering both wireless and wired PC-smartphone integration for easy connection across devices. Thanks to auto-detection and an ultra-quick setup, users can instantly connect their Samsung device to their PC or tablet to respond to text messages, answer phone calls or access and share files and data.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ will be available in the United States on August 21, with pre-orders beginning today, August 13, at 3pm EDT. The phablet will be sold in two colors, and it will be priced a fair bit more expensively than its predecessor. The unlocked base 32GB model will cost about $800 in the USA, and as much as 800 euro in European countries. Comparably, the regular 32GB Galaxy S6 edge retails for about $660 or 600 EUR unlocked.
