Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones unveiled


Samsung has unveiled its Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked event along with its new mobile payment system Samsung Pay.

Both the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 feature a 5.7-inch display, however the Galaxy S6 has a curved "dual edge" display, while the Note 5 is accompanied with the company's popular S-Stylus. Both the smartphones pack a 1.5 GHz octa-core processor with 4GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory. It has a 16 MP rear camera with Flash and 5 MP front camera. It runs Android 5.1 OS. Connectivity options included in the smartphone are Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, NFC, 4G, 3G and Micro-USB. It has inbuilt compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer and proximity sensors. It is backed by a 3000 mAH battery. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 smartphones are available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium colors.

J.K. Shin, Samsung's head of IT and mobile communications stated, "Today the journey continues in the large-screen category that Samsung created." Shin added that he expects a wide adoption because Samsung Pay "doesn't cause small business to upgrade their terminals and will be accepted almost everywhere on day one."

Samsung is attacking its biggest competitor Apple with the new devices. Analysts state that "This is a calculated move to avoid the marketing onslaught of Apple in September and October." Llamas said that with these devices, "Samsung is establishing itself at the high end and attacking its biggest and closest competitor, Apple."

Daniel Gleeson at IHS Technology agreed, saying Samsung "is hoping to steal a march on Apple's new iPhone announcement which will likely happen in early September." He added that the Galaxy Note 5 is meant for professionals and business users due to its stylus and keyboard attachment, while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ "is a much more fashion-forward device and is likely to appeal to a younger, hipper market."
