The latter, will be a super-sized Galaxy S6 edge with higher-end specs. Thanks to a reliable source, we have exclusive information on the upcoming Galaxy S6 edge+.

Galaxy S6 edge+ five apps

Thanks to our source, we were able to get our hands on a few new features that will ship with the S6 edge’s big brother. On the original S6 edge, there was the introduction to the ‘People Edge’, a feature that allowed the user to store five of their favorite contacts on the edge of the device. That way, the contacts were always just once swipe away. Now, on the S6 edge+, Samsung has added the ability to add a second page to the edge, which can house the users five favorite applications.

Galaxy S6 edge+ People edge update

In addition to the newly updated edge, the ‘People Edge’ has also received an update. Previously, there were only three shortcuts on a favorite contact: message, call, email. The newly added ‘OnCircle’ now houses six total shortcuts to a favorite contact. They include calling, video chatting, messaging, emailing, sending a picture, and even sending an emoticon.

The S6 edge+ will be debuted in New York City at the Samsung Unpacked event on August 13th. A release date is still unknown, but it is rumored towards August 21st.
