Get ready for the show! In just a couple of hours, Samsung executives will take up to the stage to showcase the brand new Galaxy Note 5 and much-rumored Galaxy S6 Edge+ at the Unpacked event in New York. For those who couldn’t get the opportunity to watch the launch event in person, Samsung has decided to live stream the event. You can watch it right from the comfort of your home (or office).
The event beings at 11 AM ET
The Galaxy Unpacked event is set to kick off at 11:00 AM ET (8:00 AM Pacific Time). The Korean electronics giant will live stream the event on its official website. Samsung will also broadcast video of the event on its official YouTube channel. We will also post images and updates from the event. So, follow @ValueWalk or @SheerazRaza on Twitter to get the latest updates about Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
Most of the features and specs of both devices have leaked ahead of the official launch. The Galaxy Note 5 is getting a major design change to look a lot like the Galaxy S6. Gone is the fake leather and plastic that most users loathed. The Galaxy Note 5 will get a metal and glass design. The device will have a 5.66-inch Super AMOLED display and a spring-loaded S Pen stylus at the bottom. It features 4GB RAM, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ features and specs
Both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ will have a 3,000mAh non-removable battery. The devices will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options. The metal and glass body means no microSD card slot for expandable storage. The Note 5 will offer enhanced security because the security software in the device will be linked directly to its processor.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is just an upsized version of the Galaxy S6 Edge launched earlier this year. It is expected to have a 5.5-inch Quad HD 2K display with curves on both sides. The S6 Edge+ will have 4GB RAM, 16-megapixel main camera, 5MP front snapper, and Exynos 7420 processor.
