Our own @Jeffrey dropped that minor bombshell on us this morning about a new Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus coming in a few weeks. Apparently, some leaked images of the Edge version of the device are now available.
Interestingly, along with the 5.5-inch display that is curved on both sides adorning this device, It is expected to feature a surprsing choice in processors. Supposedly, Sammy is using the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor instead of one of their Exynos chips. If you think about it, this makes sense. Since their factories can only crank out a limited supply of that chip, they need to focus building more of them for the more popular device: the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Either way, just as many of us wondered in @Jeffrey's thread... why is Sammy even doing this? Obviously they want to follow/copy Apple's marketing of the iPhone 6 Plus, but shouldn't they be worried about cannibalizing the success of their Galaxy Note 5 coming in September?
One of the images is shown above, and both can be seen in the thread below.
