Holy heck the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is massive

If you ever looked at the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and thought, no, it’s just not big enough? Well, if you have, then Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge+ which is rumoured to be launching alongside the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12th, looks like it should satisfy you fairly handily.

German site, allaboutsamsung.de has gotten their hands on a dummy unit for the handset, which gives us both a look at the phone, and from the finish on it, really confirms the existence of the device.

The phone essentially looks like the Galaxy S6 Edge, with a curved display ether side, and in the shot above, you can see the screen appears to be matched perfectly size wise with the Note 4, which comes with a 5.7″ screen. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ has been rumoured to have this sized screen previously, which will be a QuadHD (2560 x 1440) resolution Super AMOLED display, though with the curve, you may get a little extra resolution. Under the hood the rumours say an Exynos 7420 processor with 3GB RAM is ready to power anything you want.

We’re still waiting on Samsung to announce the event for the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, but we’ve cleared our schedules around August 12th just in case.

Is this the kind of handset you’ve been looking for?

5.7 inch is massive? Come on, that’s very standard phablet fare. There have been 6, 6.3 and 6.5 inch phones for years now, not to mention the 7 inch tablets with sim and phone call capabilities. It even looks slimmer than the Note 4 which is far from massive in the post Nexus 6 world.

Dunno about massive. Just Note sized. This may mean that there will be a new Note and Note Edge in parallel, as per the S6. I wonder if they’ll skip the 5 so that the numbers align? The Edge is certainly lovely to handle. But when I put my Note 3 down next to my bed it’s face down and no LED light can leak to disturb our sleep. How do you do that with the Edge? And once you root the device and run a more fully featured ROM, what then? Zero Edge functions? And how do you protect… Read more »
