The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge Plus are two of the most hotly-anticipated phones of the second half of 2015, and today a rumor has surfaced that claims to shed some more light on them both.
Both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge Plus are expected to feature 5.7-inch 2560x1440 Super AMOLED displays, the difference being that the Note 5’s screen will be flat and the GS6 edge Plus’s will be curved on both sides. Both will have glass backs like the Galaxy S6, and it’s said that both may lack a microSD slot, also like the GS6. Finally, both phones are expected to be sold in black, white, silver, and gold color options.
Focusing on the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung will reportedly pack an Exynos 7422 processor inside its next flagship phablet. The company is said to have tested an Exynos 7430 and 4K display for the Note 5, but decided instead to go with an Exynos 7422 and 2K screen.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 edge Plus is expected to include a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 32GB of storage, 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, a 3000mAh battery, and Android 5.1.1.
Both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge Plus sound like pretty high-end phones from Samsung. If the Galaxy Note 5 ends up featuring a design similar to the GS6, it could be a hit among phablet fans, though I imagine that there will be some folks that’ll be upset if the Note 5 lacks a microSD slot. Meanwhile, the S6 edge Plus will likely be a replacement for last year’s Galaxy Note Edge, which offered a screen that curved on just one side.
