Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ Specs and Images
Samsung just had their annual Unpacked event and not only revealed two amazing phones, but also a lot of cool new features and accessories they are bringing to the market. Let’s check out the newly announced Galaxy S6 Edge+!
S6 Edge+ Specs:
– Dual Edge 5.7 inch Quad HD AMOLED display
– Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor (2.1GHz quad + 1.5GHz quad)
– 4GB LPDDR4 RAM
– 32GB or 64GB ROM options – there is no 128GB option and no microSD card slot
– 16 MP rear-facing camera with 4K recording & VDIS + OIS and a 5MP front-facing camera (both f 1.9 lenses)
– 3,000 mAh non-removable battery
– with fast charging via micro USB 2.0 cable and PMA/Qi ‘fast wireless’ charging (0% -> 100% in two hours)
– Fingerprint scanner, heart-rate monitor
and an IR blaster
– LTE CAT. 9 compatible
– Has enhanced use of edge with ‘Apps Edge’ – swipe once from edge for favorite friends and second time for your favorite apps
This device is almost identical to the Note 5 in terms of specs, but where it is different is in the design. While it does feature the same metal frame and Gorilla glass on both sides, the Edge+ continues the dual-curved display of the S6 Edge. Additionally, the S6 Edge+ does not have an S Pen like the Note 5 has.
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be available August 21st in stores and U.S. pre-orders start today (8/13) at 3pm est! Click here to see where you can get the Note S6 Edge+!
At Unpacked 2015, Samsung also announced Samsung Pay – a secure way (through Knox Security) to pay at stores using your Samsung device. It will be expected to work at almost all card readers (Using mag-strips and NFC) and will support store branded credit cards, membership card and gift cards as well as traditional credit/debit cards. Additionally, it uses a one-time use code during each transaction so your credit card information is not transmitted. Samsung Pay will be available in the U.S. on September 28th!
Samsung also announced a pretty cool accessory dubbed the Keyboard Cover. This phone case covers the back of phone, but also wraps around the front to provide a full, Blackberry-style physical keyboard on the front – which can then be snapped onto the back when not in use. I also believe that Samsung announced a new line of their Level On wireless Bluetooth headphones. Lastly, in terms of accessories, they gave us a glimpse of the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch with more information coming at IFA in Berlin on 9/3.
Finally, Samsung announced a couple new features of which one is called Live Broadcast. For this, Samsung paired up with YouTube to rival other live-streaming apps like Periscope by having the feature built-in. Samsung also announced a new version of SideSync to wirelessly and automatically transfer files between your PC (Windows and Mac supported) and your phone.
