Boasting faster processors, more RAM and improved cameras, Samsung's two new top-of-the-line handsets—the S6 Edge+ and the Note 5 phablet—are now available, just four months after the company's flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones launched in April. The new models include 5.7-inch quad HD Super AMOLED displays, 4GB of RAM—up 1GB from previous versions—and octa-core Exynos 7420 processors. Both phones, which are now available for preorder in the United States in 32GB or 64GB versions, also include a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5MP front camera with upgrades such as a quick launch feature to capture photos faster. The S6 Edge+ has the dual curved side screen edges of earlier Edge devices, while the Note 5 includes an improved and more sensitive S Pen for writing on its screen. Both include the Samsung Pay mobile payment service, which launches in the U.S. on Sept. 28. Samsung's new SideSync 4.0 application, which allows users to easily sync their smartphones to a PC or tablet to answer calls, send texts, or access files and data, is also included. Pricing will be set by carriers. This slide show takes a look at the S6 Edge+ and the Note 5, as well as Samsung's other flagship models.
