Yesterday, Samsung revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Samsung S6 Edge+ at the company’s unpacked event in New York City. In addition to this reveal, they also revealed an odd accessory that had my opinions divided.
Meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 5
The Galaxy Note 5 is overly similar to the Galaxy S6 in terms of Processor and battery. The Note 5 comes with an Exynos 7420 processor, a 4GB RAM and a 5.7inch QHD display. If you were expecting a MicroSD slot, I am sorry to burst your bubble but the Galaxy Note 5 doesn’t come with a MicroSD card slot.
You can see the full specs below:
|Display||5.7-inch Super AMOLED
2560 x 1440 resolution
|Camera||16 MP rear camera with OIS
5 MP front-facing camera

In addition to the phone reveal, Samsung launched a very odd looking keyboard for the Galaxy Note 5, like I said earlier, my opinions were divided because I felt the keyboard practically turned the Galaxy Note 5 into a massive Blackberry look alike. See the image below and tell me what you think.
MEET THE SAMSUN S6 EDGE +
The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a bit similar to his sibling – the Galaxy S6, it is 10mm longer and 5mm wider than its predecessor with a 5.7-inch screen and a quad HD display.
One thing that is different with the S6 Edge+ is that the battery has been beefed up to 3000mAh..Asides that other hardware specs such as the camera and processor remain the same.
