Getting down to the business, Samsung has unveiled both the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5, so without any further waiting, let’s see what Samsung has to offer.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Galaxy Note 5

The first device we are going to talk about is the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung has worked really hard on improving the device over its predecessor and needless to say, they have succeeded. The screen size as well as the resolution is still the same. However, the powerful processor and hefty amount of RAM makes Note 5 a worthy competitor in the smart phone industry. Getting down to the specs, you checkout all the specs below:

  • Processor: Exynos 7420 octa-core (2.1GHz quad + 1.5GHz quad)
    64bit, 14nm
  • OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz.
  • RAM: 4GB LPDDR4.
  • Display: 5.7 inch QHD Super AMOLED screen.
  • Storage: 32 gigs or 64 gigs UFS 2.0 storage (non-expandable)
  • Camera: 16 megapixel rear camera with OIS and f/1.9 aperture. 5 megapixel front camera with f/1.9 aperture.
  • Connectivity: LTE Cat.9 along with basic connectivity options such as WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS.
  • Charging: MicroUSB 2.0 with adaptive fast charging and wireless charging support via QI charger.
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh non-removable battery.
  • Colours: White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum (colours will be varying according to the markets)

So that’s the Galaxy Note 5 for you. We personally think that despite being a huge improvement over the predecessor, the phone could have gained a lot more love if it had fan favourites included like removable battery, Type C USB (despite being rare, it’s still something Samsung should have included) and of course the highly missed microSD card.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

Galaxy S6 Edge+

Coming to the other star of the night, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is almost identical to the Galaxy Note 5, the only difference between both these devices is the weight and the fact that the latter comes with dual edge display. and has no S-pen. However, since we are nice people and we think that Samsung is the best OEM currently operating in the industry, we are going to give you a full insight of the specs. Check them out below:

  • Processor: Exynos 7420 octa-core (2.1GHz quad + 1.5GHz quad)
    64bit, 14nm
  • OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz.
  • RAM: 4GB LPDDR4.
  • Display: 5.7 inch QHD Super AMOLED screen.
  • Storage: 32 gigs or 64 gigs UFS 2.0 storage (non-expandable)
  • Camera: 16 megapixel rear camera with OIS and f/1.9 aperture. 5 megapixel front camera with f/1.9 aperture.
  • Connectivity: LTE Cat.9 along with basic connectivity options such as WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS.
  • Charging: MicroUSB 2.0 with adaptive fast charging and wireless charging support via QI charger.
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh non-removable battery.
  • Colours: White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Green Emerald.

Final Words

Although it is a bold move to announce both devices at the same event, one thing seems a bit off. What was the purpose behind releasing 2 completely identical devices using different monikers? Yes, there is a SLIGHT difference between the Note 5 and the S6 Edge+, but what it comes to the price, the difference will obviously be lot. Speaking of the devices, it was a shoddy move by Samsung to limit the storage to 64 gigs and discontinuing the 128 gigs devices in several market. However, the devices are impressive in performance and they look really good. How well they’ll perform in the market? Only time will tell.
