Samsung released two phones in March that featured some radical shifts in design philosophy: the Galaxy S6, and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Both echoed the look and size of Apple's iPhone 6, and are still arguably among the best phones on the market. Now, just five months later Samsung is pushing one of those sleek-looking phones into phablet territory with the introduction of the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
Samsung is officially taking the wraps off of the Galaxy Note 5 today, the latest in its flagship line of Note phablets. The Note 5 is best described as a blend of the Galaxy S6 introduced earlier this year and the Note 4 from last year. It's a familiar shape and size, and it's likely to be the best Note Samsung's ever made.
Samsung today officially announced its next major product launch event, which will take place in New York on August 13th. Galaxy Unpacked 2015 will be at 11:00AM ET on that date, and will likely include the announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the details of which have leaked extensively over the past few weeks.
Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab S2, a new tablet that comes in 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch variants, set to launch in global markets in August. The new devices come in a particularly light and thin metal frame — they're only 5.6 millimeters in thickness and weigh just 389 grams for the 9.7-inch model, and 265 grams for the 8.0-inch. Both variants have Super AMOLED displays at 2048x1536 resolutions, and Quad 1.9GHz and Quad 1.3GHz octacore processors. A microSD slot allows buyers to bump onboard storage space up to 128GB on both devices.
