Rumor: Note 6 To Launch In Europe, S7 Edge+ Launch Cancelled

February 9, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Samsung has introduced two flagship phablets in August last year, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. Both of those devices are Samsung’s very first metal unibody phablet smartphones, and are quite compelling at that. Well, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge announcements are right around the corner, and the Galaxy S7 Edge+ is rumored to arrive sooner than expected this year, though we still don’t know when exactly. The Galaxy Note 6, on the other hand, will probably land either in August or September this year, as usual.

That being said, a new Galaxy Note 6 and Galaxy S7 Edge+ rumor surfaced, and an interesting one at that. Now, some of you might recall that Samsung opted not to make Europe one of its initial launch regions when the Galaxy Note 5 was introduced, which made certain consumers really mad. The Galaxy S6 Edge+, however, did launch in Europe soon after it was launched. That seemed like a rather odd strategy by Samsung, and according to the new info, the company will launch the Galaxy Note 6 in Europe.

Now, this rumors also talks about the Galaxy S7 Edge+, which was expected to be announced later this year. Well, according to the rumor, the Galaxy S7 Edge+ might not launch at all. The Galaxy S7 Edge will reportedly ship with a 5.5-inch display, so that defeats the purpose of announcing the Galaxy S7 Edge+ it seems, considering that its display was supposed to be 5.7-inches big. Now, there’s still a chance Galaxy S7 Edge might ship with a smaller 5.2 panel which would make the Galaxy S7 Edge+ relevant, but at the time being, it seems like the Galaxy S7 Edge+ might not arrive at all.

That is more or less it as far as this rumor is concerned. It is still way too early to discuss Galaxy Note 6’s specifications or anything of the sort, but if any new Galaxy Note 6 or Galaxy S7 Edge+ information pops up, we’ll make sure to let you know. It is also worth mentioning that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handsets will be introduced on February 21st, so stay tuned for that.
