Samsung recently announced their two newest devices, the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ earlier this month at their Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event, and consumers were met with much fanfare as Samsung proceeded to go through showing off both devices while talking about the new features and improvements of old ones found on the flagships from earlier in the year. They also mentioned when these two new devices would be available which is August 21st. That’s today, which means anyone who has been interested in picking these two devices up can do so in a number of different ways including ordering online or grabbing them from various retail locations and carrier stores.
While both phones have been available to pre-order on a handful of carriers like Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint’s websites, some carriers, like T-Mobile was not doing pre-orders and listed they would be available for purchase in stores on the launch date. For everybody who didn’t pre-order, you can now hop on down to your local retail stores and upgrade or activate new lines while purchasing either the Galaxy S6 Edge+ or the Galaxy Note 5. The devices don’t seem to be available on Amazon just yet, so it looks like consumers will be limited to just the carriers and other retailers for the moment.
Some users have also already received their pre-order devices in the mail so this won’t be the first day consumers have been walking around with the brand new devices. As a recap, the Galaxy Note 5 will come equipped with a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a 64-bit Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, a 16MP OIS rear facing camera, a 5MP front camera, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM all powered by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery. As for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, many of the specifications are actually the same, with the differences boiling down to hardware like the S Pen in the Galaxy Note 5 and the curved edge screen on the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Both devices feature the fingerprint sensor and will support Samsung Pay, and both support Quick Charge 2.0 as well as wireless charging and quick wireless charging.
