In just a few hours from now Samsung is going to unveil two new handsets that fans have been anxiously waiting for. Much has already been written and said about the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ yet there’s no concrete information about when these devices will actually come to market. A report out of Korea claims that at least pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will start from August 20th in South Korea.
According to The Korea Times, Samsung is hoping that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (which should be a larger variant of the already available S6 edge) will help it increase profit margins - which weren't great in the last quarter.
The current “known” specs for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus include a 5.67 inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display with an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor and 4GB RAM. It is said to feature 32GB of internal storage that is non-expandable, a 5MP front facing camera, 16Mp rear camera with 4K Ultra HD video recording, LTE Cat 6 offering 300 Mbps download speeds, Wi-Fi n/ac, Bluetooth v4.1, NFC and a fingerprint sensor. The handset will launch running Android 5.1 Lollipop and will reportedly come with Samsung Pay, which ties in with previous reports of a September release for Samsung’s payment solution, though select users in South Korea are already experimenting with it.
All three major carriers in the company’s home base – SK Telecom, KT and LG U+ – will reportedly start taking pre-orders for this handset on August 20, it’s unclear right now when pre-orders might go live for the handset in major markets across the globe.
