Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge, its first dual-curved smartphone that was in our opinion, a game-changer in the world of mobile tech, is set to get a sibling.
German fan site 'All About Samsung' have brought out images of a new device from Samsung's factories that looks like a larger and wider impression of the Galaxy S6 Edge. It's 5.7 inches long and little more than 3 inches wide compared to 5.59 inches and 2.76 inches of the existing Galaxy S6 Edge. In terms of looks, the device is the same as the S6 Edge save for the larger display.
The revamped size brings the new phone, named the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus by All About Samsung, at par with Galaxy Note 4.
In terms of specs, there's no change in terms of processor (Exynos 7420), primary camera (16MP), front camera (5MP) and base storage (32GB). However, we aren't sure if the new phone will be available in 64GB and 128GB variants like the Galaxy S6 Edge.
The S6 Edge Plus, maybe because of the larger display, will also field a 3,000 mAh battery in place of the 2,600 mAh one in the S6 Edge.
Android Community are also speculating that the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will contain a metallic S-Pen which might be ejectable. They shared a few leaked images which reveal a metallic stylus but ther're not sure if what appears is actually metal or a colour coating.
We expect Samsung to announce the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus along with the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12, but that all depends on whether Samsung has been able to complete development and testing of the new device so far. Whatever may be the case, we expect more leaks to surface in the coming days if the speculated launch date is in fact true.
