Galaxy S6 Edge+: The Galaxy S6 Phablet

After countless leaks along with the Samsung Galaxy Note5, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is now official. It is basically a carbon copy of the Galaxy S6 edge, including its metal and glass trim and the dual curved edges. It measures 154.4 mm x 75.8 mm x 6.9 mm, making it bulkier yet a tad thinner than the Galaxy S6 edge. The Galaxy S6 edge+ packs a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display of Quad HD resolution. This translates to a pixel density of 518 ppi, which is still very sharp. It is powered by the same chip used in the Galaxy S6, which is a 14nm 64-bit, octa-core Exynos 7420 with 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB/128GB of non-expandable internal storage. All storage variants will feature the high-speed UFS 2.0 storage.

In the camera department, the Galaxy S6 edge+ comes with the same 16-MP primary camera that can be found on the Galaxy S6 edge, with a wide f/1.9 aperture, OIS (optical image stabilization), and LED flash. It can also capture 4K videos. Meanwhile, the front camera is a 5-MP unit. For multimedia, the Galaxy S6 edge+ also features Ultra High Quality Audio (UHQA) to upscale audio streams and files for richer, high-quality sound. UHQA is supported over Bluetooth on Samsung’s next generation wireless audio accessories. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, dual-channel Wi-Fi, GPS, GLONASS, NFC and LTE. It also has a touch type fingerprint scanner and a heart rate monitor. A large 3,000 mAh non-removable battery will keep the flagship phablet's lights on. It supports both rapid charging and wireless charging out of the box.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with the latest version of TouchWiz on top. Aside from the usual TouchWiz UI goodies, the phablet supports Samsung Pay and Apps edge, which allows users to access their favorite apps by just swiping the edge display, while ‘People edge’ helps users quickly find their favorite contacts and send messages, or give a call directly from any screen.
SideSync 4.0 is also supported, which offers both wireless and wired PC-smartphone integration for easy connection across devices.
