Even as the technical specifications of both the smartphones are yet to be made official by Samsung, numerous reports have been published about the key features that could be incorporated on the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

The Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus are rumoured to feature similar technical specifications, which include a 5.7in display, Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC, 16MP primary camera and 4GB RAM. The former is rumoured to feature an auto-ejecting S-Pen.

Moreover, a report published in The Korea Herald hinted that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus would be launched globally, while the Galaxy Note 5 could be launched only in South Korea and the US, which are traditionally strong markets for Samsung.
