New photos show the Galaxy S6 edge on top of a prototype S6 edge+
If you needed more proof that the Galaxy S6 edge+ will be a bigger version of the Galaxy S6 edge, then the latest batch of leaked photos should give it to you. The photos show a Galaxy S6 edge sitting atop a prototype of its bigger sibling, and reveal a couple of small changes in the hardware. On the Galaxy S6 edge+, the microphone at the bottom has shifted its position, and the phone seems to be missing an infrared sensor at the top.
The infrared sensor is probably missing because this is a prototype and will most likely be there on the final device. The rest of its hardware will be the same as the Galaxy S6 edge as well, except for the screen size seeing an increase to 5.7-inches. As we had exclusively revealed, the Galaxy S6 edge+ will be officially announced alongside the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12, and could replace the Galaxy Note 5 as the latest phablet from Samsung in Europe, at least initially.
