Samsung ramped up its smartphone strategy Thursday, unveiling its new Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5 devices at a glitzy event in New York’s Lincoln Center.
Like the Galaxy S6 edge, the edge+ has dual curved edges, but comes with a 5.7-inch display, larger than its predecessor’s 5.1-inch screen.
“Today, the journey continues in the large screen category that Samsung created,” said JK Shin, CEO of Samsung Electronics’ IT and Mobile Division, during the launch. “We’re still betting big – the fact is that we’re all using our smartphones in two major ways – as multimedia consumers and as multitaskers.”
Touted as ideal for multimedia users, the edge+’s dual edges offer users a shortcut from any screen to their contacts and apps.
