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.
