In attempt to keep up with Apple’s new releases, Samsung just launched another major player: the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge +. So, what’s new here? Well, for starters it’s got a slightly bigger quad HD display compared to the S6 Edge. To be more specific, it measures 5.7 inches, while the S6 Edge comes with a 5.1 inch display. However, the resolution is the same, resulting in a slightly lower pixel density of 518ppi. As for the OS, it runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Other hardware specifications include an Exynos 7420 Quad-Core processor, 4GB RAM, choice between 32 GB or 64 GB storage, a 16 MP camera in the back and a 5 MP camera in the front, and a 3000mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly. The battery offers plenty of juice too and charges quickly. Also, the primary camera comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
All this is further enhanced with the usual goodies such as a proximity sensor, fingerprint detection, barometer, heart-rate monitor, gyroscope and the list goes on.
The phone will also support Samsung Pay, which was sort of expected. Added to that, a new type of software called SideSync should make it easier for users to transfer files between the phone and the computer.
As for what’s not great, the S6 Edge+ won’t come with a stylus because it’s based on the S6 and not the Note series. It also will not have expandable storage, which means 64 GB is the maximum storage space you can get. Then there’s the non-removable battery, which can be off-putting for certain customers.
