Samsung has launched two new big screen phones as part of its flagship Note series – Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ at an event in New York. The devices will be available globally starting August, 2015. Both have 32GB or 64GB storage options available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium variants. Pricing information is not available at the moment.
Both of the phones feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440p) Super AMOLED displays but the S6 edge+ has a dual edge screen with extended curved displays on the edges.
The Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ are powered by a Samsung Exynos octa core (2.1GHz Quad + 1.5GHz Quad), 64 bit chip and 4GB RAM (LPDDR4). The two will come in 32GB and 64Gb storage variants but there’s no microSD card slot.
The phones run Android 5.1 Lollipop with a new optimised version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI layer.
