We were a bit saddened to see that the Edge display on the original Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge wasn’t as robust as the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge’s in that it doesn’t allow you to run mini apps or get updates on weather, news and other notifications. Instead, Samsung opted to simplify it and make it the coolest caller ID ever.
Well, some of that functionality might make a return. Samsung will apparently improve the Edge features on the S6 Edge+ by allowing you to quick launch applications, as well as previous functionality of getting quick access to your five most favorite contacts.
Otherwise, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ should be mostly identical to its smaller sibling, albeit with obvious bumps in display size (5.7 inches vs 5.1 inches) and battery (2,600mAh vs 3,000mAh). We’ll be learning more in just a couple of days so stick with us.
