Galaxy S6 Plus leaks; launch is only weeks away


Samsung news titans SamMobile, have been tracking a new device coming from the South Korean smartphone manufacturer dubbed ‘Project Zero 2’. If this sounds familiar, that is because Samsung originally had the Galaxy S6 named ‘Project Zero’. According to the leaked information, ‘Project Zero 2’ is the expected Galaxy S6 Plus.

The Galaxy S6 Plus (formally ‘Project Zen’) was originally slated for a debut at IFA 2015, but instead will launch in the coming weeks. The device is expected to have a 5.4 or 5.5 inch QHD display with the same dual-edge design as the Galaxy S6 edge. It will also sport a Snapdragon 808 processor backed by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. It will still retain the same 16 megapixel rear-facing and 5 megapixel front-facing cameras from the Galaxy S6/S6 edge.

Galaxy S6 Plus leak

This information makes even more sense, as YouTube’s tech giant MKBHD has joined the leaking game. Today, in his video “HTC One M9+ (& S6 Plus)“, he showed off an alleged image of the Galaxy S6 Plus. Overall, it shows a very familiar shape, as it is just an enlarged S6 edge. Seeing as the device is larger, we could expect a larger battery.

If we assume the device will come with a 5.5 inch display, the battery size will most likely jump up to 2,750 mAh, if it follows the same design ratio. That way the device would still retain the same overall shape and thinness, but the extra width and height will allow for some added space. That’s just my take though.
