Galaxy S6 Edge Plus full specs and accessory prices leaked
It doesn’t rain, it pours and so seems to be the case with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 smartphones and although they are set to launch in just a couple of days, we’re hearing more and more about them with every hour that passes. Earlier today we saw Samsung reveal pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will launch on August 21 (before pulling the listing) and the latest leaks have now revealed the full specs list for the curved phablet along with the cost of the official accessories.
First to the specs and a listing by well-known Romanian retailer evoMAG has revealed the full specs of Samsung’s upcoming curved big-screen device. We’ve already heard most of them before but it’s always nice to get confirmation and looking at the listing, we know the handset will have a 5.67 inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display and will be powered by an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor with 4GB RAM.
The specs list also includes 32GB internal storage that is non-expandable, a 5MP front facing camera, 16Mp rear camera with 4K Ultra HD video recording, LTE Cat 6 offering 300 Mbps download speeds, Wi-Fi n/ac, Bluetooth v4.1, NFC and a fingerprint sensor. The handset will launch running Android 5.1 Lollipop and will reportedly come with Samsung Pay (which ties in with previous reports of a September release for Samsung’s payment solution).

Now to the accessories and last week, we saw a leak of an unique keyboard cover for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Earlier this week, we saw another leak that seemingly confirmed the existence of the cover along with a price tag of 60 euros and now UK retailer Mobile Fun has confirmed the cost of a range of official Samsung accessories. The full accessories list includes (US conversion is approximate and rounded to the nearest full dollar)
