At the same Unpacked event on Thursday, in New York, Samsung Electronics revealed a bigger S6 Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (Plus), which is the only phablet the Europeans will get their hands-on through official channels, because Samsung’s marketing plans don’t include the Note 5.
Yes, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is big and beautiful, but it isn’t a Note, something the European phablet fans, I bet, would like to own, especially those faithful fans of the Galaxy Note series who, probably, owned all previous models and now they are being denied the pleasure of owning the next one.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ packs pretty much the same hardware specifications as the Note 5, but there is not S Pen and no stylus software functionality. S6 Edge Plus feature a 5.7″ Super AMOLED display curved on both edges, that offers 2K (2,560 x 1,440 px) screen resolution, an Exynos 64-bit octa-core processor is its heart, comes with 4GB of RAM, 32 and 64GB internal storage and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The S6 Edge+ runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS version and it comes with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX on top of it. This phablet will be available in Europe later this month for £600 (32GB models), £680 (64GB models).
