The Edge Plus is a larger version of the Galaxy S5 and it is currently reported to feature a dual-edge curve screen. In August, Samsung will be unveiling two different flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and the Galaxy Note 5.
A lot of features about the Note 5 have already been revealed and reports on the S6 Edge Plus are currently surfacing the internet. Earlier reports indicated that the S6 Plus is similar to the Galaxy Note 4 phablet.
Speculations suggest that this device will have a 5.7inch Super AMOLED display. It will be a larger variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge and will reportedly feature a dual-edge curved screen. We heard that the S6 Edge Plus would be powered by a Snapdragon 808 chipset. Right now, Phone Arena states that this device will have an Exynos 7420 chipset.
For those who are not aware, this is the same chipset that powers the S6 and the S6 Edge. The 7420 Chipset in the S6 Edge Plus will offer better performance the other two present-generation devices. If the rumors are true, the Galaxy Note 5 along with the S6 Edge Plus will come with 4GB of RAM.
There is still no word on the camera on this device but the handset will use a 3000mAh battery. Furthermore, there is still no confirmation on the addition of a microSD card slot.
Reports suggest that the S6 Edge Plus will be revealed along with the Note 5 on 13 August and both these devices will be available for purchase on 21st August. The correct name of this device hasn’t been released yet but Sam Mobile indicates that it will be named ‘Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge +”.
The latest update on the S6 Edge Plus comes in the form of Geekbench scores which further states that this device has the same Samsung-made Exynos chipset. Earlier leaks suggested a Snapdragon 808 for the S6 Edge Plus with Exynos 7422 predicted to be featured on the Note 5.
However, this is not the first time that we’ve heard reports about the Exynos chipset being featured on the S6 Edge Plus. Earlier, there were similar rumors from Vietnam but it wasn’t supported by any credible evidence back then.
The latest benchmark listing complies with the earlier rumor which predicted a 4GB RAM. Both the Vietnamese and the recent benchmark reports clash with the specs that were revealed by a couple of user agent profiles. This would have been fine except if it didn’t come as a bad news for the microSD card slot which was included in these user agent profiles.
In other news, OnePlus has recently revealed its latest flagship killer, the OnePlus 2. The company has claimed that it matches with the leading flagship handsets from Samsung and Apple while being 300 pounds cheaper at the same time.
The 16GB version of the OnePlus 2 is extremely cheap at 239 pounds. Compared to this, the iPhone 6 is quite pricier at £619, around £400 more than the OnePlus 2. At the same time, the cheapest Samsung Galaxy S6 is priced at £559 with 32GB of storage and is considerably more expensive than the OnePlus 2. The OnePlus 2 is simply £10 more expensive than the OnePlus One, when it released back in UK.
OnePlus decided to make a more powerful statement with the OnePlus 2, incorporating premium materials like magnesium/aluminum and stainless steel. However, the OnePlus 2 is both bulkier and heavier than the Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. OnePlus is also offering StyleSwap covers which include Kevlar, rosewood and bamboo finishes.
