Just six months after announcing its flagship Galaxy S6 Edge Phone , Samsung Thursday announced a larger version of the phone — the S6 Edge Plus.
The Edge Plus has a 5.7-inch display, which pushes it over into “phablet” territory, especially compared to the 5.1-inch display on the original S6 Edge. The Edge Plus has the same screen size as the new Galaxy Note 5, also announced.
Key features of the device as follows :-
Samsung says the new Edge Plus is one of two phones that are first to market with LTE Cat. 9 technology, which raises the ceiling for wireless connection speeds (individual results may vary). The new S6 Edge Plus also ships with Samsung Pay, which supports both contactless NFC payments and magnetic secure transmission (MST) payments.The new phone is the followup to the original Galaxy S6 Edge, which was unveiled in February at Mobile World Congress. The phone gets its name from the curved edges of the display.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus offers Samsung’s “advanced camera system,” which includes Quick launch (double-click the home button to launch the camera from any screen), Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), and and some new photo filters. It can also shoot 4K video. The Edge Plus ships with 4 gigabytes of RAM, the most memory of any Samsung phone before it. This could help the phone stay fast and responsive as users open multiple apps. Both the S6 Edge Plus and the new Galaxy Note 5 (also announced today) ship with Samsung’s wireless charging technology, which Samsung says is compatible with virtually any wireless charging pad available . The Edge Plus can use the baked-in wireless charging to go from empty to full in two hours. And Samsung also stated briefing on the new products that it is working on “staying ahead of the curve” when it comes to the things consumers want in a smartphone.
