To recap on the specs, both the Note5 and S6 edge+ comes with a 5.7″ Quad HD display and it runs on their 14nm 64-bit Exynos 7420 Octa-Core processor with 4GB of RAM. It also gets the same 16MP OIS camera and 5MP front shooter as the S6 and powering both devices is a non-removable 3,000mAh capacity battery.
The Galaxy Note5 gets the same metal and glass treatment like the S6/S6 edge series but it gets a double curve glass back for a more comfortable hold in a single hand. The S-Pen has been improved with a push to eject mechanism but be warned that putting it in the wrong way will result some irreversible damages. Meanwhile the S6 edge+ is basically a larger S6 edge but it does a couple of new software enhancements on the edge display. There’s no microSD expansion slot but the phablet duo does come with Dual-SIM support which is a first officially for a Samsung flagship in Malaysia.
