Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Officially Announced – What You Need To Know
Yesterday we did a write up on the Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy Note 5. We understandably had mixed emotions over some of the official announcement (mainly the lack of a removable battery and external storage). Those same feelings carried over into the announcement of the S6 Edge Plus.
The S6 Edge Plus is supposed to be a larger version of its little brother the S6 Edge. However, it is really more of a clone of the Note 5 with rounded edges on the screen, hence the “Edge” title. Next to the Edge feature the only other major difference is the lack of an S-pen.
For a write-up on all the other changes see the previously mentioned write up on the Note 5.
