The S6 edge+ could be a better multitasker than its standard-sized sibling.
4GB of RAM has become a standard on many smartphones this year thanks to Chinese manufacturers like Lenovo and Asus, and Samsung has been rumored to be jumping on the bandwagon with the Galaxy Note 5. But if the latest leak is to be believed, it’s possible the Galaxy S6 edge+ could also take the leap towards a better multitasking experience by having the same amount of RAM as Samsung’s next Note flagship.
Samsungviet reports that the Galaxy S6 edge+ will have 4GB of RAM, in addition to the Exynos 7420 CPU of the S6 and S6 edge (and a higher clock rate), and a 3,000 mAh battery. Earlier rumors had pegged the processor to be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808, but it would only be fitting to see Samsung not moving downwards as far as changes from its current S6 lineup is concerned. The bigger battery will no doubt be a welcome upgrade, but it would have been nice to see battery capacity that matches the Galaxy S6 Active’s rather than that of standard 5.5-inch+ flagship smartphones.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ is expected to be launched on August 12 alongside the Galaxy Note 5, and Samsung’s first round smartwatch.
