Samsung is flooding the market with high-end smartphones to strengthen its foothold amid rising competition. The Korean company launched Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge at the IFA event last year. Its newest flagship smartphones Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have been available for almost two months now. There have been rumors that Samsung will expand the S6 moniker by launching Galaxy S6 Active and Galaxy S6 Mini.
Project Zero 2 is actually Galaxy S6 Plus
Samsung was expected to launch the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 5 Edge with dual-edge display sometime in September. However, Italian publication HDBlog has learned from its sources that a new device called Galaxy S6 Plus is coming in the next few weeks. The Galaxy S6 Plus will have a dual-edge display. So, if you can’t wait for the Galaxy Note 5 Edge, the upcoming S6 Plus may be for you.

HDBlog says that Galaxy S6 Plus is internally code named Project Zero 2 (earlier Project Zen). Project Zero was the code name for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The Galaxy S6 Plus is believed to feature a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED dual-edge display, 32GB internal memory, a 16-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front snapper, and a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor.
Galaxy S6 Plus won’t feature S Pen stylus
The S6 Plus will not have the S Pen functionality. It will simply be the larger version of Galaxy S6 Edge, carrying model number SM-G928. The only major difference is that the Galaxy S6 Plus will feature a Snapdragon 808 processor, unlike the S6 Edge which sports Exynos 7420. Make no mistake: it’s not the next iteration of the Galaxy Note Edge.
The standard Galaxy Note 5 is being developed under Project Noble. It will reportedly have a 2K or 4K Super AMOLED display, an S Pen stylus, wireless charging, and an increased focus on virtual reality. The Note 5 will run a new Exynos 7422 all-in-one processor that combines CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and modem on a single chip. The Note 5 is expected to be announced at the IFA event in Berlin in September.
