Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note5 Smartphones

Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6edge+ Smartphones

Samsung today announced their flagship smartphones for 2015-2016, which come in two models with 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screens. The Galaxy S6 edge+ has a curved screen on both edges, while the Galaxy Note5 is thinner and slimmer than its predecessor. Otherwise, both have the same features, which include Samsung’s best screen technology, Samsung’s most advanced camera for high quality photos and videos, fast wireless and wired charging, and an incredibly powerful processor. With increased 4GB RAM, both phones enable users to enjoy more seamless multi-tasking.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ makes the edge experience even better and provides a more immersive multimedia experience. The thinner, slimmer and newly-designed Galaxy Note5 has a refined, next generation S Pen and multi window capabilities for a more productive smartphone experience.

Galaxy S6 edge+ – best for multimedia

With the Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung is bringing everything consumers love about the S6 edge to a bigger screen in a slim and thin form factor. Beautiful and intuitive, it uses the dual edges as a shortcut from any screen to users’ top contacts and apps. ‘Apps edge’ allows users to access their favorite apps by just swiping the edge display. ‘People edge’ helps users quickly find their favorite contacts and send messages, or give a call directly from any screen.

Galaxy Note5 – perfect for multitaskers

The Galaxy Note5 is a stunning upgrade to Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Note line – more powerful than ever. Inspired by the design legacy of the Galaxy S6, it ergonomically fits in one hand with a narrower bezel and curved back which makes it easier to use the phone with one hand.

Engineered to help people get more done, faster, the Galaxy Note5 includes an all new S Pen that feels more solid and balanced in the user’s hand, offering improved writing capabilities and a variety of practical tools. A unique clicking mechanism pops the S Pen out with just one quick click. Users can now quickly jot down ideas or information even when the screen is off. The ‘Air Command’ feature gets more intuitive and practical as well; now the icon hovers for instant access to all of S Pen tools from any screen at any time. Users can also annotate on PDF files or capture a whole website from top to bottom with Scroll Capture.

Powerful Core Galaxy Features

Both the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5 feature unprecedented multimedia capabilities through Samsung’s industry-leading 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display.

As social networking becomes more ubiquitous, consumers expect to share the moments of their lives through video. On both the front-facing and rear-facing cameras your videos will be steadier and smoother with the added Video Digital Image Stabilization. Video Collage Mode allows users to record and edit short videos easily in various frames and effects. The Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5 also feature 4K Video filming which can be displayed on a 4K TV, as well as full HD Live Broadcast, which lets users instantly stream video straight from the phone to any individual, group of contacts, or even the public through YouTube Live. Anyone who receives the YouTube link from a Galaxy S6 edge+ or Note5 user is able to enjoy live broadcast from his or her smartphone, tablet, PC or Smart TV.

Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 users will also benefit from Samsung’s advanced camera system, including Quick launch (double-click the home button to launch the camera from any screen), Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and brand-new filters. Both devices feature Ultra High Quality Audio (UHQA) to upscale audio streams and files for richer, high-quality sound. UHQA is supported over Bluetooth on Samsung’s next generation wireless audio accessories, including the Level On Wireless Pro.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5 feature Samsung’s built in, fast wired and wireless charging technology which is compatible with virtually any wireless charging pad available today.

Samsung’s newest devices are further upgraded to support SideSync 4.0, which offers both wireless and wired PC-smartphone integration for seamless connection across devices2. Thanks to auto-detection and an ultra-quick setup, users can instantly connect their Samsung device to their PC or tablet to easily respond to text messages, answer phone calls or access and share files and data.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 are built on the upgraded Samsung KNOX, end-to-end secure mobile platform, offering defense-grade features for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks. Both devices are also ready for immediate enterprise adoption, with market-leading MDMs and KNOX enhancements. Right out of the box, Samsung KNOX takes security to the next level.
