Specs leak out for Samsung’s rumoured Galaxy S6 Edge+

The web is ablaze with Galaxy S6 Edge+ rumours right now, but among the chaff are a few solid leaks.

One such revelation comes courtesy of a Romanian retailer (via PhoneArena), which posted not one, not two, but four different models of the upcoming handset to its website. The page has now been taken down.

What’s more, the leak disclosed most of the core specs of the device ahead of the official unveiling.

For starters, it looks like we’ll see a 5.6in Super AMOLED Quad HD display.

That’s an increase on the 5.2in panel used for this year’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

The display will also be protected by Corning’s latest drop-resistant Gorilla Glass 4.

Seemingly powering the device is an octa-core Exynos 7420 chip built by Samsung and clocked to 1.5GHz.

This will be paired with a Mali-T760MP8 graphics chip that should ensure the S6 Edge+ can cope with power-hungry mobile games.

One of the more interesting mooted features is the inclusion of 4GB of RAM. This is about the top-end when it comes to smartphone memory right now, and marks the S6 Edge+ as distinctly flagship.

In terms of its ability to take photos, there’s a 16-megapixel camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter – no surprises there, then.

Perhaps the only letdown in this leak is the mention of a 3,000mAh battery, which seems small given the size and resolution of the display.

Hopefully, software and processor optimisations will be enough to give the S6 Edge+ a decent battery life.

Earlier today, we reported on a leak from an official Samsung web page that suggested the South Korean tech giant would start retailing the S6 Edge+ on 21 August.

We’re expecting the device to be officially unveiled at Samsung's annual "Unpacked" event on 13 August, alongside the Galaxy Note 5.
