Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ becomes official!
Along with the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung also announced the Galaxy S6 Edge+ which is a bigger version of the very popular Galaxy S6 Edge.
Samsung increased the display size of the Galaxy S6 Edge to make the S6 Edge+ which is now at 5.7-inch. That’s exactly the same size as the Galaxy Note 5.
