Samsung launches the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ on August 12
Thanks to various online sources we have learned that the widely discussed Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be launched on August 12, with market availability expected on August 21.
The new handset will not be alone, though – the smartphone will be accompanied by the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which will be officially known as Galaxy S6 Edge+. The device will also debut on August 12 and will be in stores on August 21 so customers will have a tough choice to make.
We touched the tech specs of the Galaxy Note 5 but we feel it will be justified to mention them again – the phablet is expected to come with an Exynos 7422 processor, 4 GB of RAM and a Shannon 333 LTE modem. The device will also offer a large 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display and Android 5.1 Lollipop. The Galaxy Note 5 will, however, not have a microSD card slot for expansion of the memory inside, so choose wisely when the time comes. The handset will also have a very thin chassis like the Galaxy A8, which is nice.
Now when it comes to the Galaxy S6 Edge+, do not expect revolutionary changes. The smartphone will be the phablet version of the Galaxy S6 Edge and will have a curved display and the same color options as the Note 5. The S6 Edge+ will, however, be powered by an Exynos 7420 processor and will have 3 GB of RAM, instead of 4 GB like in the Note 5. The storage options will likely be the same as in the Note 5.
There’s no information on how much these two devices will cost but we will surely find out sooner or later.
