Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ also official, 5.7 inch curved display, Exynos 7420 in tow: Available next Friday

Galaxy S6 edge+

Just as Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 5, the company also revealed the equally significant Galaxy S6 edge+ today. For all intents and purposes, this is nothing but a bloated up version of the Galaxy S6 edge from earlier this year. And the company is making no secrets of that with the naming convention.

This is a viable alternative for those who felt like the display real estate was somewhat lacking on the Galaxy S6 edge. To sum up, the handset comes with a 5.7 inch Quad HD AMOLED display with dual curved edges, an Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC, 32 and 64GB of storage variants (no microSD card slot), a 16-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, Android 5.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz and a 3,000 mAh battery underneath with fast charging technology.

The handset is a miserly 6.9mm thick and is 153 grams in weight, which is seriously good for the kind of hardware packed in. Most of the hardware specs of the smartphone are identical with the Galaxy Note 5, pretty much like the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge were back when they were released.

T-Mobile has announced that the device will be up for grabs starting August 13 and under its $0 down plans. Customers will have to shell out 23 installments of $32.50 and one installment worth $32.49, which adds up to $779.99. Hit T-Mobile’s link below for more details on the Galaxy S6 edge+. The carrier has already announced the release of the Galaxy Note 5 on the same day.
