According to reports, Samsung is gearing up to lift the lid on the Galaxy S6 Plus and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which are rumoured to be phablet versions of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Now, Dutch-speaking GalaxyClub has spotted the “S6 Edge+” trademark granted to the South Korean tech giant by the USPTO (US Patent and Trademark Office), giving more credence to the rumours. The trademark application was filed with the USPTO on the 26th of June, and was granted on the 30th of June.
So what makes us think that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a phablet and not a smartphone? Usually, when “+” or “plus” is added to a device’s moniker, this means that the device is bigger than its basic counterpart. An example is the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 is the smartphone, while the iPhone 6 Plus is the phablet.
As for the size of the Galaxy S6 Edge+, according to past reports, the phablet will sport either a 5.5-inch of 5.7-inch screen. It is said to measure 154.45 x 75.80 x 6.85 mm. There aren’t much details about the Galaxy S6+ at this point. All we know, thanks to rumours, is that the device is rumoured to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor with four ARM Cortex-A53, two ARM Cortex-A57 cores, and an Adreno 418 GPU instead of Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz under the hood.
