Samsung Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus release date: announcement to be made August 12 or 13


Samsung fans will have a reason to convene anew next month as the announcement of the two latest products, the Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus, are slated for launching this August 12 and 13. This is contrary to previous rumors that it will be launched at the German FCC on September. Whether the early launch strategy will work remains to be seen in the coming months.

According to Slash Gear, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is a hybrid of the best of other Samsung phone features, taking its cue from the Note 5, Edge, and Galaxy S6.

Sophisticated diagrams rendered for Slash gear illustrate the appearance of its 5.7 inch display. The battery is at 3220 mAh, while the phone is expected to have 32 GB/64 GB/128 GB internal storage capacity. It will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon or Samsung Exynos 7422 processor, and have 16 megapixels for rear and 5 megapixels for front camera. Notably, there will be no S Pen in this release because this particular model does not need it.

On the other hand, some other foreign websites are showing photos of the S6 Edge Plus that make it look no different to other Samsung phones as far as dimensions or width is concerned. As such, fans are currently divided on the issue of whether the product has something really new to offer to the Android community or if it’s just another ubiquitous smartphone with an improved battery life.

While the debate on the S6 Edge Plus phablet is ongoing, a more realistically rendered prototype image of the Samsung Note was released online albeit unofficially. Fans are taking these photo leaks with a grain of salt, what with the advent of photo editing software.

According to BGR, the two products will be available on markets this August 21.
