Posted alongside the Note 4 for comparison, we can see that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is indeed much closer in size to the Note series than Samsung’s latest flagship. This supports the claim that the phone will feature a QHD (2560×1440) display in the region of 5.7-inches. We can also see why Samsung may choose to drop the Edge name from its Note series, as the phone is simply a larger form of the existing Galaxy S6 Edge.
Technical details were not included alongside the dummy unit. The latest rumors suggest that the smartphone will be powered a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 16MP rear camera with optical images stabilisation and a larger 3,000mAh battery than the regular Galaxy S6. Storage options are expected to come in the familiar 32GB, 64GB and 128GB sizes.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus was expected to be unveiled alongside the Note 5 in Berlin at the usual IFA event, which takes place in September. However, other reports have suggested that Samsung may be moving up the launch date to August 12th or 21st, in order avoid a clash with the launch of the latest iPhones.
