The Galaxy Note 5 apparently isn’t the only device Samsung has up its sleeve for the summer. Rumor has it, the company’s planning to release a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, or Galaxy S6 Edge+, into the wild soon. Here, we take a look at the most important things you need to know about it ahead of launch.
In February, Samsung announced a brand new smartphone with a curved screen to join the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge from last year. The device is called Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and instead of one curve like the Galaxy Note Edge, it comes with a display that wraps over both sides.
As we’ve made our way through the year, we’ve heard rumors about Samsung’s fall pipeline and the devices that could join the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on shelves. One of those devices is the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The other is a device that’s currently dubbed Galaxy S6 Edge Plus or Galaxy S6 Edge+.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is reportedly a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge. It’s an intriguing device particularly for those that are interested in Samsung’s curved displays. It also helps that it’ll probably arrive this month.
With Galaxy S6 Edge Plus details swirling, we want to take a look at the most important things prospective buyers need to know about the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and its release. These will help set your expectations ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked event on August 13th.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Launch Date
Samsung's already confirmed the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. It did so in an announcement regarding its second quarter earnings and it provided further evidence in a recent contest. This device is very real and it's probably going to be announced next week.
Next week, Samsung is hosting an Unpacked event in New York City. And there, on August 13th, the company will almost certainly detail the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and at least one other product. Unpacked events are saved for big smartphone launches and it's clear that Samsung has at least two new flagships on the way.
