Official Samsung Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus images leaked
Leaked: Samsung Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus images revealed ahead of August 13 launch.
New Delhi: Days ahead of the launch of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, official images of the two devices have been leaked online.
The prices of both Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have dropped by as much as Rs 10,000 within just four months of its launch in India and there could be a further price-cut going forward.I recently had the opportunity to test out Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Active, a device that’s built to withstand water, dust, and the occasional drop from high heights. The South Korean giant is long rumored to be working on a bigger S6 Edge with the curved screen and the leaked images, which appear to be official renders, show the device as expected.
According to Korean Times, Samsung is distributing programs that will allow Chinese consumers using Galaxy smartphones to delete all the pre-installed applications from their devices. The report added that the Chinese version of the Note 3 had 44 pre-installed mobile applications and out of those, 24 applications were required to be installed for the use of the phablet. The Note 5, meanwhile, looks like it shares a similar the Galaxy S6’s handsome metal-and-glass design, though it has slightly sharper corners from the looks of it. At first glance the white, blue or black camouflage back gives off the impression the device is geared towards the adventurous—and it is—but it’s also ideal for unforgiving business environments: Think distribution centers, or construction sites. It added, “If Samsung fails to meet its own promise, then the legal tussle will be continued and expanded.” Adding to this news, Samsung China stated on the company’s website that it will allow customers to delete ‘unwanted applications’ even from the latest model – Samsung Galaxy S6.
In addition to the plastic housing, one major visible difference between the S6 Active and its predecessor is that it no longer has a fingerprint reader, which was purposely excluded so that it could continue working after getting wet. That new metal-and-glass design does come with a loss, however: the removable back and the microSD card slot on the Note 4 are said to be missing this time around.
According to Counterpoint Research’s Q2 2015 Global Mobile Phone Market Summary, “Smartphone shipments declined across key markets as the Galaxy S6 series launch did not move the needle or arrest the slowing growth. Having already reviewed the standard S6 lineup, I found user experience was more or less identical, so I decided to take a different approach with this review. So, if Samsung is now able to sell its flagship Galaxy S6 for as low as Rs 39,000 and may be even less in the near future, what was stopping it from doing the same four months back? After testing out the device’s “water-resistant” claim, the speakers needed a few hours to completely dry out, an expected side-effect I’m told, otherwise after a quick wipe-down you would have never known it was submerged.
