Exclusive: Galaxy S6 edge Plus will have 5.7-inch dual-edge display, Android 5.1.1

There’s a larger version of the Galaxy S6 edge undergoing development over in Samsung’s backyard, that much has been made certain by numerous rumors and a leak that actually showed us such a device in the flesh. Given the beauty that is the Galaxy S6 edge, these leaks have gotten us pretty interested. We reached out to our insiders to see if we could get more information on the Galaxy S6 edge Plus (as the rumors call it), and managed to dig up two important details.

First, the display. The Galaxy S6 edge Plus will have a 5.7-inch display, with curves on both sides like the Galaxy S6 edge. Rumors had pointed at a 5.5-inch display, but it looks like Samsung thinks 5.7-inch is a better size (or the company is just more comfortable with the size because of its last two Galaxy Note smartphones.) Secondly, the Galaxy S6 edge Plus will come with Android 5.1.1 preloaded out of the box – unsurprising, as anything below 5.1.1 would be totally unacceptable at this point.

The phone will launch sometime in the third quarter this year, but we have no information on a concrete launch date. As always, we’ll be sure to share any more information that we come across.

It doesn’t make sense to have a note lineup and a s-plus lineup. I’m pretty sure the s6 note is the same as the s6 plus, which will replace the note 4 this year. There will then be a variety of s6 models in a year:
- s6
- s6 active
- s6 mini
- s6 note

why they are expanding S series with phablets, when Note is already there? Unnecessary wastage of efforts, instead they should concentrate on Note 5 !!

But from a previous article it will be lower in terms of specs for raw performance as it will house a snapdragon 808 processor not the exynos 7420, the plus is only for screen size, so in short it will be a tiny bit slower than the regular S6 edge

It fits well with the rumor that Note 5 moves into 5.9″ territory. Let’s wait to hear about the internals of the phone before we compare it to the Note 5.
