Two new mobile devices have been revealed.
Samsung has officially announced the launch of its latest smartphones. The Galaxy S6 edge+ & Galaxy Note5 both join the growing Galaxy line of products.
"At Samsung, we believed in the promise that large screen smartphones could actively address some major consumers pain points by providing users with a better viewing experience and more productivity on-the-go," said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics. "With the launch of the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5, we're reemphasizing our ongoing commitment to bold, fearless innovation that meets the needs of our consumers."
Both models feature 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screens with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and 518ppi. Under the hood, the smartphones are powered by an Octa core (2.1GHz Quad + 1.5GHz Quad) 64 bit CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery running Android 5.1. A rear 16MP and front 5MP camera are included as well. In addition, the Galaxy S6 edge+ uses a dual edge screen that offers an "Apps edge" and "People edge" feature that allows customers to easily access apps and contacts from the edge of the display. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note5 includes the new, refined 5th generation S Pen.
