Galaxy S6 edge+ to receive higher marketing focus than the Galaxy Note 5?

As we inch closer to the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+, yet another interesting bit of information has surfaced regarding the two phablets. We had exclusively revealed that the Korean manufacturer would not be launching the Galaxy Note 5 in every market, at least in the initial phase, and would instead be giving consumers in these regions the Galaxy S6 edge+. Now, The Korea Herald is reporting that Samsung will even be putting more marketing resources on the dual-edge phablet than its next Galaxy Note flagship.

Apparently, the Galaxy S6 edge+ will be launched globally while Samsung is still not decided on where the Galaxy Note 5 will make an official appearance, something that echoes what our own insiders had told us. As for the marketing efforts, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising to see Samsung taking it lightly with the Note 5. The Galaxy Note lineup is so popular at this point that it’s destined to do well even with the most basic of marketing, but that Edge display with its dual curves is a new and not-so-well-known feature that Samsung would want to highlight as it bets bigger and bigger on curved displays over the coming years.

Of course, displays curved on both sides don’t exactly offer much in the way of functionality, not at this point of time anyway, but the fact that the S6 edge has managed to create considerably more demand than the regular S6 could have something to do with Samsung’s intention of making a heavy push for the larger S6 edge. There is a lot of confusion over what Samsung is planning on doing with its next top-of-the-line smartphones, though it won’t be long before everything gets cleared up by the company itself.

The more I hear about the disappointments Samsung has in store regarding the Note 5 (No IR blaster , removable battery, micro SD, USB 3.1 with type C connector and IP68), the less excited I am about getting the Note 5.

Bcoz they know…more than half of customer will go to note 5 bcoz of s pen (me also) … so they are marketing edges to perform well…
And since some dont know the use and style of edge so they have to make people to take attention on it…bcoz s pen is now 4 yr old and everyone know its magic…good strategy sammy..

A Note series big problem is TouchWiz as long as it doesn’t get refreshed along Android big updates or the next S Series launchment. So with S Series you have a new TouchWiz for a year until the next S gets in the market but Note series gets its TouchWiz old only in a half year.

Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a better opponent to iPhone 6S Plus. More modern and beautiful. The majority of people don’t care about the s pen.

Samsung forgets that the Note buyers/users aren’t necessarily the same as the S-Line buyers/users. It will be interesting to see, if this is true.

I only will buy the Note series products, but now it seems that I have to be waiting for the Note 6

Ever Samsung has treated the Note line that the “adopted child” and S line as the favorite child, so nothing new so far. The worst was yet with Note4 and the history repeats itself with Note 5. Note line took it well because he had dedicated users and it was something special. Note 4 took her the best just being helped by S6 which brought many new users who otherwise would not have bought a Note and this gives confidence to Samsung. Now with Note 5 however, the situation seems to have changed, if the rumors are true, he doesn’t… Read more »
