Back in April we were amazing with curved glass of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Now Samsung is taking it up a level releasing the all-new 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. But don’t be fooled by the large screen. The Edge+ isn’t just a larger version of April’s 5.1-inch, it has some similarities but it also has enough differences to set it apart.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is packing a lot of new and stronger materials. Some of the things that are going to be in the Edge+ is a strong 16-megapixel camera, 4GB of RAM and an octa-core processor of Samsung’s own design. Just like the S6 Edge, the Edge+ shows off a bright and colorful metal-and-glass construction. Because of the design of both the S6 Edge and S6 Edge+, you lose the ability to remove the battery and microSD card. Not being able to remove the battery for a Samsung phone is a big change!

Now we know what you want to hear; what is so different about the S6 Edge+ from the S6 Edge? Below we provided a table that will give you a side by side comparison of both the Samsung S6 Edge and the Samsung S6 Edge+
