Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5Yesterday Samsung announced two new supersized phones at its Unpacked event in New York: the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+.

The new handsets both have 5.7 inch screens boasting 2560 x 1440 resolution Super AMOLED diplays, with 518 pixels per inch.

Like the Note 4, the Note 5 still comes with an S-pen stylus, but its predecessor’s plastic frame has been replaced by metal and glass, in keeping with the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Measuring 154.4 x 75.8 x 6.9mm and weighing 153g, the Galaxy S6 Edge is effectively a larger version of the S6 Edge, released earlier in the year, and retains the same curved sides. It has the same Exynos 7420 octa-core processor but boasts 4GB of RAM instead of 3GB and comes with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. However, there is no micro SD card slot and the 3,000 mAh battery is non-removable.

The Note 5 shares the same specs, and both have a16 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, and fingerprint sensor for security and use with Samsung Pay, which was also announced at the event.

There’s also a keyboard attachment for both handsets, for those who prefer physical keys as opposed to touchscreen.

UK pricing is yet to be confirmed, but the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is expected to arrive on our shores on 4 September. However, there are currently no plans to release Note 5 in Europe.
