The rumors and leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ are boiling over as the release date nears. And a new report from India confirms key configuration details of the double-edge-display-clad Samsung smartphone.
According to the Zauba database, which keeps track of India's import/export activities, the rear-facing camera unit on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be 16 MP. As reported, the database has entries of 16 MP camera units bundled with 1/2.6″ sensors, shipped to India from China. Samsung apparently imported 500 units of the sensors into India. Moreover, the price of each sensor unit is equivalent to $19, notes Phone Arena. The entries also confirm that the model number tied to the Edge device is SM-G928.
Technically, the imported 16 MP camera unit is same as the ones seen in the flagship Samsung Galaxy S6 and the double-edge-display variant Galaxy S6 Edge. This means the much-appreciated camera feature “OIS” will be part of the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge+ device as well. Meanwhile, the release date of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be on Aug. 13 in New York City at Samsung’s “Unpacked” event.
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ will come with a 5.7-inch display, it is rumored, aided by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels QHD screen resolution. The smartphone will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor. The icing on the cake, however, is the 4 GB of RAM unit, believed to be part of the device. Plus, Phone Arena says, the entire configuration will be backed by a huge 3,700 mAh battery unit. For memory, the device will come equipped with 32 GB of storage space, but without a microSD card slot. Samsung has not confirmed the Galaxy S6 Edge+ specifications thus far.
