Here’s our best look at the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ so far
We’ve heard a lot about the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ in recent weeks, but we don’t expect Samsung to make them official until mid-August at the earliest. Thanks to a series of leaked images, however, we don’t have to wait until then to find out what they’re going to look like.
As expected, the Galaxy Note 5’s design is a combination of the Galaxy Note 4’s and the Galaxy S6’s. It looks identical to its predecessors from the front, but it has a redesigned aluminum frame with curved edges, and what we believe to be a curved glass back — though that’s the one thing we don’t get to see in these photos.
As for the Galaxy S6 edge+, it’s essentially a larger version of the existing S6 edge. It’s expected to have a 5.7-inch Quad HD display — just like the Note 5 — but it will be curved on both sides. A shot below confirms the device will launch with Android 5.1.1, the latest Lollipop release, pre-installed.
