The Galaxy S6 Plus made its first on-camera appearance this week in a video from YouTuber MKBHD. The rumored Samsung smartphone was pictured briefly in a hands-on clip focused for the most part on HTC’s One M9+, though the supersized Galaxy device still managed to steal the show.
Despite its name, the upcoming phablet is actually closer to the Galaxy S6 Edge than the regular Galaxy S6. It’s expected to feature the same curved display, though it’s apparently been stretched to a larger 5.5 inches in size. Otherwise the device may offer similar or slightly upgraded specs, including a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
MKBHD also implies that the Galaxy S6 Plus will only be available in Asia, similar to the HTC One M9+. Recent reports suggest Samsung will unveil it within the next few weeks.
We understand why phone makers are pushing these “Plus” models in Asia, where phablets are incredibly popular, but it’s more than a little frustrating to see bigger and better versions of our flagship phones launch on the other side of the world. We wish both devices could be available in the U.S. as well.
