The dimensions of the upcoming phablet from Samsung, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, have been leaked and its size is quite surprising, to say the least.
As reported on Tech Radar, the leaked photo did not only reveal the alleged new flagship’s dimensions but it also came with a comparison between the upcoming phone and the previous and original iteration. According to Slash Gear, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is going to have a dimension of 154.4 x 75.9 x 6.9 mm which makes it a lot larger compared to the 142.1 x 70.1 x 7mm dimensions of the Galaxy S6 Edge.
With these latest, albeit, unconfirmed details, there is no doubt that the upcoming handset from Samsung is going to be included in the phablet category — devices that fall in between the size of a smartphone and a tablet.
However, as pointed out by Tech Radar, these dimensions are not surprising given that the handset is rumored to come with a 5.7-inch display. As for the resolution, there are contradicting rumors with one pointing toward the device having a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 while the other insisting that it will come with a 1,600 x 2,560 display.
In fact, an inside source of Slash Gear, firmly stated that the display of this phablet is going to have a Super AMOLED 1,600 X 2,560 resolution.
Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is rumored to be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor or a Samsung Exynos 7422. It was also leaked that the phablet is going to have a 3GB RAM with a battery of 3,220mAh.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is expected to have three variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of internal storage. Moreover, it is rumored to come with a 16MP rear camera capable of capturing 4K quality video recording and a 5MP front camera.
Slash Gear claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is going to be unveiled next month on Aug. 12 or 13 and will be available for purchase on Aug. 21.
No word yet from Samsung concerning these leaked details so it is best to take it with a grain of salt for now.
