Samsung is less that 24 hours away from unveiling the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ at its Unpacked event in New York. A day before the official release of Samsung’s next-gen phablet, Phone Arena has obtained images of the Galaxy Note 5 with Ulak cases. Ulak is a major smartphone accessories maker. What’s more, crucial details about the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ battery and pre-orders have also emerged.
Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+ to feature 3,000mAh battery
The accessories maker shows off the device in its high-end Lumenair cases as well as the more affordable Clear Slim line of cases. Ulak has also released images of the Note 5 covered in its rugged Nutcandy and Knox Armor cases. We have seen a lot of case renders in the past few weeks. On Thursday, August 13, we will know for sure if the accessories makers had Samsung’s flagship phone (or its prototypes) all along.
Meanwhile, reputed tipster Evan Blass reports that both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ will feature a 3,000mAh battery. By comparison, the Note 4 came with a 3,220mAh battery, while the Galaxy S6 Edge has 2,600mAh battery. The new devices will offer maximum talktime of 21 hours and standby time of 336 hours. Blass has an impressive history of accurately revealing features of Samsung devices ahead of their official launch.
Samsung may start taking pre-orders on August 21
However, the battery in both devices will be non-removable, which may disappoint some buyers. Samsung has accidentally revealed that the “Galaxy S6 Edge+” pre-orders will begin on August 21. GalaxyClub.nl had spotted a pre-order page for the smartphone with a dual-edge display. Samsung was quick to take down the page and replace it with a Galaxy Unpacked live event page.
But GalaxyClub.nl reports that the pre-order would run between August 21 and September 3. So, there is a strong chance that the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ may hit the store shelves on September 4. That’s in line with recent reports that Samsung would launch its new flagship phones before Apple refreshes its iPhone line. The Cupertino company is set to unveil the new iPhones on September 9.
