The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, are the latest smartphones revealed couple of days ago at the Samsung Unpacked Event 2015. The main difference between the Note 4 and the Note 5 is the non removable back, which means no Extra Storage also and a smaller battery.
The S6 Edge Plus, which is the successor of the S6 Edge which doesn’t have a removable back already, gained a few extra inches and now has a 5.7 inches screen, like the new Note 5.
Since both of these new devices are completely sealed, they might be secretly waterproof or water resistant to be exact. EverythingApplePro has put these devices alongside the latest iPhone which is the iPhone 6 Plus to a water test, and the results are shocking! Watch the video below and see these devices take the Water Test!
Note that after the video was over the Samsung devices have been placed in silica kitty litter (to take the water and moisture out) and still no response. And the iPhone is still alive and fully functional!
So the iPhone 6 Plus is secretly Water resistant! unlike the new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus!
Not long ago, we passed along rumors of Samsung giving the Galaxy Note 5 phablet an early July launch in order to get a lead before Apple’s iPhone announcements in September. Acting swiftly, Samsung’s JK Shin dismissed them, saying that no, the Galaxy Note 5 is not going to be a summer hit. He didn’t say, however, that there are absolutely no other announcements coming in this quarter whatsoever! And if the latest rumors are anything to get by, Samsung might, in fact, throw Android fans a bone.
According to hdblog.it, a Galaxy S6 Plus is being primed for an announcement in the coming weeks. Allegedly, Samsung called this one “Project Zero 2” internally, but this will actually be a larger version of the Galaxy S6 edge, which will retain the dual curved screen edges. Other ties to the Note line-up, such as S-Pen functionality, haven’t been mentioned.
What’s essentially a Galaxy S6 edge “Grand” strikes us as a rather odd product choice from Samsung, especially considering the rumors of a dual-edged Galaxy Note 5 announcement in September. While the latter sounds logical, the former is plain weird, but Samsung wouldn’t release such a thing if it didn’t make sense inside the company.
With this in light, the Galaxy Note 5 is still expected to show up around the IFA Conference in September, wielding a thin profile, an S Pen, and possibly a 4K resolution display. The rumored spec sheet has already made the successor to the Galaxy Note 4 one of the most hyped smartphones this year, with virtually no advertisement from Samsung.
Samsung must be pretty annoyed that the Apple Watch just went up for preorder last night because otherwise it might be getting a lot more attention for its Galaxy S6 release. SamMobile has received some pictures of customers lining up outside the T-Mobile store in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and while they aren’t exactly iPhone 6-level big, they’re nonetheless substantial.
Cynics out there may try to claim these people are just being paid off by Samsung to stand in line. In reality, however, the Galaxy S6 is a Samsung phone that really does live up to the hype and is easily the best phone Samsung has ever made. So while waiting in long lines to buy a smartphone that you could just order online is a very silly thing to do, we aren’t too surprised people are doing it for the Galaxy S6.
Ironically, Apple this week has been discouraging people from waiting in line to get the Apple Watch and it isn’t even selling the device in stores — instead, you have to order them online. You can go into an Apple Store to try out the Apple Watch, of course, but even then Apple recommends that you make an appointment first.
