Along with the Galaxy Note5, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus during its Unpacked 2015 event in New York.
It’s a bigger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge with the same curved screen on both sides. It flaunts a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display compared to the latter’s 5.1-inch screen.
Just like the S6, S6 Edge and Note5, Samsung has adopted the new metal and glass design for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Hence, it has a more premium look and feel than previous smartphones from the company.
Under the hood, an Exynos 7420 runs the show with four high performance CPU cores running at 2.1GHz and another four power saving CPU cores clocked at 1.5GHz. This is aided by 4GB of RAM and a lighter TouchWiz UI on top of Android Lollipop.

Photography is taken care by a 16MP camera with f/1.9 aperture for great photos even in low light and optical image stabilization that reduces video shakiness. Livestreaming to YouTube is supported at 1080p resolution.
Connectivity includes dual band Wi-Fi, 4G LTE and 3G networks, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS with GLONASS. It also has a finger print sensor, heart rate monitor, USB OTG support, fast charging and fast wireless charging.

Its main disadvantages are the same as that of the Note5 – lack of microSD card slot and non-removable battery. You can only choose the 32GB or 64GB variant.
