Galaxy S6 edge Plus vs Galaxy S6 Edge Spec Shootout

by Todd Haselton | August 13, 2015August 13, 2015 4:00 pm PDT

Take the Galaxy S6 Edge, stretch it and give it a kick of Hulk juice and you get the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the more powerful and larger variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge that launched earlier this year.

You’ll find the new Exynos 7420 processor, a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 32GB or 64GB of storage and a 3,000mAh battery. The 128GB option won’t be available with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, however, though you’ll get 4GB of RAM instead of the 3GB found in the Galaxy S6 Edge.

There are some changes on the software side, too, that might make their way to the Galaxy S6 Edge. You’ll find the option to quickly launch apps from the side-screen menu, for example, and the camera will let you livestream right to YouTube. Check out how the two phones compare in the spec sheets below.
