Galaxy S6 Edge Plus preorders may start on August 21
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus are fast becoming the most leaked handsets of the year and the company itself seems powerless to stop these leaks. The latest leaks comes from Samsung itself who has seemingly confirmed the existence of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus while also confirming that pre-orders for the handset will launch on August 21st ahead of a launch on September 3rd.
As spotted by Galaxyclub.nl, Samsung’s own French website posted a pre-order page for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and listed the handset alongside a music bundle that includes a pair of headphones and Google Play Music. It also listed pre-orders as starting on August 21st and finishing on September 3rd, suggesting the handset could launch around September 4th. A previous report suggests the handset could go on sale on August 21st so this release date may only apply to the bundle.

These are expected to include a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution, an Exynos processor, 4GB RAM, a 16MP rear f/1.9 camera with OIS and a 5MP front camera. The Note 5 should have almost identical specs as the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus but should come with a S-Pen with new features.
As spotted by Engadget, Samsung has pulled its pre-order page and replaced it with an Unpacked Live event page which suggests this was more than just a placeholder. Either way, we should know everything there is to know about Samsung’s new devices in just a couple of days’ time.
