Let’s try this again.
This afternoon Howard has invited me along to an appointment with his contacts from Samsung Canada, no doubt to show off the new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+. If you ever wanted to grab the ear of the Canadian electronics arm of this multinational conglomerate, this might be a rare opportunity to do just that.
The usual caveats apply here. The last Samsung event I attended was a fairly structured affair, where everyone was sat in front of a Galaxy Tab to follow along with a very long and very dry PowerPoint presentation before actually getting to see what we were there to see. I don’t know if they’ll be willing to submit to your questions, but I’ll ask them nonetheless.
Both of Samsung’s new devices are powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC and feature 5.7 inch 2K Super AMOLED screens, with 4 GB of RAM and either 32 or 64 GB of storage. The more dubious features include a non-removable battery and no support for micro SD. And the only differences between the two? The Galaxy S6 edge+ has a dual-edge display, and the Note 5 has the S-Pen.
Just a reminder, this is Samsung Canada that we’ll be talking to, so questions specific to non-Canadian carrier availability, markets, etc. probably won’t get much in the way of an answer. And finally, here’s a pair of links to get you up to speed on Samsung’s latest:
