Another Samsung Galaxy S6 variant may be on its way. Samsung has hinted about the release of one more phone that will be called Galaxy S6 Edge+. According to a Tech Times report, the South Korean giant has obtained the trademark for “S6 Edge+” in the U.S. and it is assumed to be a larger version of the S6 that is already ruling the market.
The trademark was registered with USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office). As 9to5Mac reports, Samsung wants to retain the Note line for the new smartphone and thus offer a bigger size of the dual-curved model. The website also stated, “Samsung wants to simplify its product offerings by placing them all under the Galaxy umbrella.”
The report also stated the possibility of a larger market for the bigger-sized phone as people are more bothered about the size rather than the stylus and power-user software.
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ will come with a 5.5 or 5.7-inch display, according to rumors, and it may have different features compared to the existing S6 Edge. The in-house Exynos processor may be replaced by a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808. So the performance of the phone remains under scanner till its release. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge comes with Exynos 7420 processor. This can also mean that the new model will come with a lower price tag.
As far as other specs are concerned, the model may have 32GB internal storage along with 16 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera. It will probably be supported by a 2000 mAh battery and will come with OIS and 4K video recording facilities.
Samsung has made no official announcement so far about the new model of Galaxy S6. If the trademark news is correct, you can expect an official announcement from the company very soon. However, it is common for big companies to obtain patent and trademark for several things they won’t use in the end. We can just hope that these rumors are true.
