Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

Description

Best described as a "super-sized" Galaxy S6 edge, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ differs with a bigger, 5.7-inch display (a 0.6 inch increase), larger 3000mAh battery (a 400mAh increase), and bigger overall size. Hardware-wise, we're once again looking at an Exynos 7420 SoC, driving the mains alongside 4GB of RAM. Memory choices are the usual as well - there are 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage variants available. As in the original phablet, there is no microSD card slot, and neither a removable battery.

This device is also known as Samsung SM-G928V, Samsung SM-G928A, Samsung SM-G928T, Samsung SM-G928P, Samsung SM-G928I, Samsung SM-G928R4, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge plus
