• Samsung Unveils Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 Ahead of Unofficial iPhone 6s Event



    Ahead of Apple’s unofficially announced iPhone 6s and 6s Plus unveiling event next month, Korean-based company Samsung has gone ahead and unveiled their new Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 devices. Both new smartphones are 5.7-inch big, which makes them .2 inches bigger than Apple’s current 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Last year when the Cupertino-based company launched their devices and saw such positive reaction to the phablet, Samsung rushed and got their devices released sooner than originally planned.

    Both of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 phones have 4GB of RAM, 8-core Samsung Exynos chips, a 5-megapixel front camera, and 16-megapixel rear camera. According to the South Korean company, the devices will not only be able to stream live YouTube videos in full HD quality but the back camera will be able to capture 4K video. JK Shin, Samsung Mobile chief noted:

    At Samsung, we believed in the promise that big screen smartphones could actively address some major consumers pain points by providing users with a better viewing experience and more productivity on-the-go. With the launch of the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5, we're reemphasizing our commitment to bold, fearless innovation that meets the needs of our consumers.
    The S6 Edge+ and Note 5 will be available starting September 21st and will be offered in 2 configurations; 32GB and 64GB. As for color options, the S6 Edge+ will be offered in gold, white, and black and the Note 5 will be offered in white and black. We must say, Samsung was smarter this year to unveil their new devices earlier than Apple and then offer the smartphones around the same time as Apple. They definitely learned from their mistake last year. Will you be switching over or back to the Samsung? Share with us in the section below.

      I'm going to lmao if Apple is announcing on September 9th as rumored and then sets preorders to start on the 11th Friday(midnight) and deliver on the 18th still defeating Samsung's try to beat the iPhone to market.

      Samsung had good idea to announce, but to wait till 21st September to make it available?? You just screwed up and leaving it open to Apple to steal your thunder again. Lol smh

      The article says release on September 21st, but that promo pic above saves August 21st. 8/21 would make far more sense and give Samsung a full month of availability before the iPhone release.
