Just recently we heard that Samsung is actually going to make a follow-up to the Galaxy S6 Edge, turns out, they were serious! Meet the new Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. This phone is aimed for enthusiasts wanting a large screen and above all, bragging rights. The dual curved sides haven’t yet made them-self useful enough to be a must-have but it surely is fancy enough that everyone wants one. The phone comes with a glorious Dual Edge Quad HD Super AMOLED screen which truly is the main highlight.
Similar to other keynotes this year, a lot was leaked and lot of those leaks ended up in the final product. However, stitching each feature together was still left out and thanks to the official event we now have full details. The new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge plus has all the same internals as the Galaxy Note 5 just with added dual edges. This phone serves as an alternative for people wanting a larger phone like the Note but still require the Edge functionality. This phone also will succeed over the previously announced Note Edge series. All the latest bits such as fingerprint scanner will come with this new device. For more technical details, read below.
