Samsung officially announces Galaxy S6 edge+

Last updated:

Samsung has announced its new Galaxy S6 Edge+, a 5.7-inch dual edged phone which is a larger variant of the popular Galaxy S6 Edge which was launched in March.

Like its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a complete metal and glass body which supports a Quad HD Super AMOLED display.

With the Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung is bringing everything consumers love about the S6 edge to a bigger screen in a slim and thin form factor. Beautiful and intuitive, it uses the dual edges as a shortcut from any screen to users’ top contacts and apps. ‘Apps edge’ allows users to access their favorite apps by just swiping the edge display. ‘People edge’ helps users quickly find their favorite contacts and send messages, or give a call directly from any screen.

The phone can also be charged wirelessly and a new wireless charging technology ensures that it can be charged completely in 90 minutes. The wireless charger, which will be included in the packaging, can also be charged completely in 120 minutes.

Both the 16MP primary and the 5MP front cameras contain Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR) Smart Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and brand-new filters. The primary camera can be launched in one second by just double tapping  the home button.

“At Samsung, we believed in the promise that big 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 commitment to bold, fearless innovation that meets the needs of our consumers.”

Responding to security and privacy concerns, Samsung has introduced an improved KNOX Active Protection and My KNOX for enhanced security.

Samsung’s newest devices are further upgraded to support SideSync 4.0, which offers both wireless and wired PC-smartphone integration for seamless connection across devices2. Thanks to auto-detection and an ultra-quick setup, users can instantly connect their Samsung device to their PC or tablet to easily respond to text messages, answer phone calls or access and share files and data.

For music lovers, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be available with a free six-month subscription with Google Play Music.

The Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be avaiable in both 32GB and 64GB variants and you will be able too choose among Gold Platinum, Black Sapphire and other colours. The phone will be available later this month for pre-orders and sales will begin from September 4.
