Yesterday Samsung officially took the veil off the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The plus-sized version of the Galaxy S6 isn’t too much different from the original in terms of looks and specs, but its color choices do differ a little bit.[related_videos align=”center” type=”custom” videos=”634294,634226″]
Just like with the Note 5, Samsung is giving us a total of four colors to choose from. Of course, it’s hard to say which colors will make it to the US (or your region), and even if they do the colors available will likely vary from carrier to carrier. With that in mind, let’s jump right in and take a look at the colors of the Edge+.
While the colors offered with the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge were similar, each model had its own special color choice. This isn’t the case with the Note 5 and Edge+, as both phones come in white pearl, black sapphire, gold platinum, and titanium silver. Just like with the Galaxy S6, the S6 Edge+ colors are translucent and are pretty reflective. This is especially true of the platinum and silver variants.
The white pearl is a pretty standard white color with no real surprises here, though it provides a very clean look and happens to be the best at hiding fingerprints and smudges.
Next up is black sapphire. It’s pretty safe bet you’re going to see this one the most often. For one thing, pretty much every carrier at least stocks black, and it is a pretty traditional color for smartphones. This is the same color as found in the Galaxy S6, meaning that it has a bit of a blue hue in it when the light hits it just right.
The Gold Platinum color first debuted with the Galaxy S6, and is probably the flashiest color of the bunch. If you are really looking for something that stands out and catches eyes, this one is going to be hard to beat.
Lastly, we have Silver Titanium. This is a brand new color introduced with the Note 5 and Edge+, and while not as flashy as the gold coloring, its mirror-like finish still makes it very reflective and will make it hard to keep clear of fingerprints.
Regardless of which color you choose, the Edge+ is a very attractive looking phone, even if it really nothing more than a supersized version of the original Galaxy S6 Edge. Which is your favorite, and why? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
