Galaxy S6 Plus rumored to launch this month with upgraded specs



The Galaxy S6 Plus could arrive way sooner than expected according to one new report. Italian site HDBlog claims Samsung could unveil the super-sized flagship phone within the next few weeks, citing several “reliable” anonymous sources.

The device will allegedly be a bigger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge. SamMobile adds that it may come equipped with a 5.4 or 5.5-inch curved AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 32GB of storage. It apparently won’t support Samsung’s S Pen stylus, however.

Speaking of which, the long-rumored Galaxy Note 5 is still expected to arrive later this year at IFA, which takes place every September in Berlin. The flagship phablet is apparently still in development, and could offer either a 2K or even an insane 4K resolution display along with a new Exynos 7422 octa-core processor.

It seems unlikely Samsung would rush out a new device, especially after recently calling the Galaxy S6 an early success. It’s possible the company thinks it needs to rush out a direct competitor to Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus, though for now we’d definitely treat these rumors with suspicion.

If Samsung does announce the Galaxy S6 Plus this month we’ll have all the news right here, though we don’t really expect any new high-end phones from the Galaxy-maker until IFA kicks off in September.
