Samsung has released its Galaxy S6 Edge+ for pre-order in the UK and early purchasers can get the handset as soon as September the 3rd.
The standard issue Galaxy S6 Edge was only launched back in April with a 5.1-inch Quad HD touchscreen display and little big bro totally shadows him. Measuring up with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display which, like its predecessor, rolls around the sides which is where the Edge element comes in.
Other features of this sizeable sibling include Android 5.1 Lollipop as OS of choice and Samsung’s own Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, which combines 1.5GHz Cortex A53 and 2.1GHz Cortex A57 quad-core engines so this big lad is not only stylish but also a heavy hitter and should handle anything you throw at it (as far as digital content and usage is concerned – not a brick.)
The Edge+ also boasts a healthy 4GB of RAM with 38GB and 64GB internal storage options available, which of course varies the price, and the handset offers a 5-megapixel front camera for sharp selfies and a 16-megapixel main camera with f1.9 aperture for true light capture. In addition, the cameras will launch in 0.7 of a second meaning you can whip out the phone and capture any moment quickly.
As for that price, various factors contribute to how much you’ll be looking at paying but as you’ll probably guess it won’t be cheap. You may want to clench now before reading on.
Starting out at £749 (including VAT) the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ can be bought SIM-free with 32GB of storage space in a choice of Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum. If you want to double the storage to 64GB it’ll cost you and extra £80, with the same colour options available at £829. On the plus side, Samsung is shipping the phone at no charge within the UK.
