Samsung Unveils Galaxy S6 Edge+, Full Specs Inside
Yesterday, at a live Unpacked event in New York City, Samsung announced the new Galaxy S6 Edge+. The phone is a “super-sized” Galaxy S6 Edge, packed with the latest, greatest mobile hardware. It however maintains the predecessor’s emblematic curved screen and colourful notifications.
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ sports a 5.7-inch quad HD super AMOLED display at 518 pixels per inch. It is powered by the 64-bit octa-core Exnyos 7420 processor, along with 4GB of LPDDR 4 RAM. As usual, there are 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage variants available.
The dual-edged phablet boasts 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, coupled by a 5MP selfie shooter. The cameras also benefit from Samsung’s ‘Quick Launch’ feature that allows launch in less than a second at a double click of the home button.
Moreover, the device supports Ultra High Quality Audio (UHQA) format to upscale audio streams and ensure less sound distortion when files saved in the codec are played.
The phone has no microSD card slots, and features 3000mAh non-removable batteries. Its connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS/ A-GPS, and Micro-USB 2.0.
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ measures 154.4×75.8×6.9mm, and weighs 153 grams.
“At Samsung, we’re committed to offering our customers a best in class technology experience, providing the ultimate on-the-go immersive multimedia viewing experience,” said Andy Griffiths, president of Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is available as early as tomorrow, August 14th, at more than 7,000 participating AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Samsung Experience Shops at Best Buy. Check out the full list of locations at www.samsung.com/onebigdecision.
Samsung is yet to reveal the price of the Galaxy Edge+, but it will cost a fair bit more expensively than its predecessor.
