The best Android phone you can buy right now
As previously reported, Samsung must be in serious business with new phones. Earlier, last week the company announced the Samsung Galaxy S2 with 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch variants sizes set to launch in the global market in August.
Recently, Samsung has also announced two new phones coming out next month- the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus — both of which will be revealed on August 13, according to report from Korean publication Business Korea.
The company will hold an event in New York to present the two new phones, the report says. This follows a report from a week ago, which indicates that Samsung would announce the phones on August 12 and begin selling them on August 21.
A mid-August dispatch is right on time for Samsung — normally, the company waits until the yearly IFA conference in Berlin to announce its new Note phone and other Samsung Galaxy S6 devices. IFA usually happens toward the end of August or early September.
Business Korea reiterates reports we’ve heard in the past saying that Samsung is making an effort to beat Apple by announcing its large-screened phones early. Apple usually reveals its new iPhones ahead of time in September and start selling them toward the end of the month.
The Galaxy Note 5 would be Samsung’s newest phone in the Galaxy Note line. Samsung’s Note phones for the most part comes with a much bigger screen than that of the phones in its top Galaxy S line, and add in a stylus. The design is usually a bit squarer also. This year, however, the Note 5 is rumored to come with a new design that is will be similar to that of the Galaxy S6, which means it may not come with a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, though, is anticipated to be a larger version of the Galaxy S6
Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Price
Pricing is much harder to work out, especially when we don’t yet know what the phone is made out of. However, we can still make some educated guesses. When we surveyed the Note 4, it cost around $650 in U.S, which is the same as the S6 costs. Overall, if Samsung should move up with the quality of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, that would make it extremely expensive, and would be another reason that Samsung shareholders will smile again.
