Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus next month at an event set for August 13 in New York. However, it looks like one key spec for the upcoming smartphone may have already been revealed.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will pack a 16-megapixel rear camera, according to a recent post on Indian shipping database Zauba. We assume that’s the same lens found on the regular Galaxy S6 Edge. The leak also reveals that Samsung shipped 500 units, with each camera module priced at 1,223 Indian Rupees (roughly $19).
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is expected to serve as a larger version of the S6 Edge, boosting the screen size from 5.1 inches to 5.7 inches. Otherwise the new phone should feature similar hardware, though it may get a Snapdragon 808 processor instead of a Samsung Exynos chip.
Rumor has it Samsung will also reveal the Galaxy Note 5 with cutting edge specs, a flat 5.7-inch Quad HD display and a new in-house processor at the same press conference. The company may even announce its long-awaited Gear A smartwatch with a round screen and a Tizen-based operating system.
This August event is shaping up to be a pretty big one. We can’t wait to see what Samsung has planned, and we’ll be covering the event live from New York.
