Samsung seems to be placing a lot of emphasis on screen sizes, lately. The Galaxy S6 Plus, which will purportedly be released next quarter, is said to have a larger display. A number of specs rumors have been circulating around the device, and a prototype reveals that it looks almost exactly like the Galaxy S6 Edge, only with a much bigger build.
Previously, we learned that the Galaxy S6 Plus would have a display size of 5.4 or 5.5 inches. The device is said to run on a Snapdragon 808 processor and will carry the moniker "Project Zero 2" — its earlier sibling, the Galaxy S6, was dubbed "Project Zero" prior to launch.
A separate leak from Russia suggests that the rumored device will actually be called the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. More images were also unveiled, showing the potential design of the handset.
Given these two speculated names, it appears that the upcoming handset will be an improved version of both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. It is highly likely that it will bear some of the familiar features from Samsung's current flagships, with added functionalities in order to enhance user experience.
The company has reportedly filed a trademark application, which suggests that the new handset in the Galaxy lineup will have the Galaxy S6 Note moniker. But then, we may just have to wait until launchtime to see how the device will be officially labeled.
Samsung's trademark filing shouldn't really be a surprise, as vendors commonly do so in order to protect their brand identity. In Samsung's case, the company has already established its product lineups in the high-end sector. It places the Galaxy S series of devices in its flagship lineup, while the Galaxy Note series caters to those who are keen on having larger-screen handsets.
The new Galaxy S6 Note is rumored to launch in the coming weeks, although an official confirmation is still needed. The Note moniker means that the upcoming handset could come with an S Pen functionality. Other notable features include a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU.
