We are but only two days away from Samsung’s Unpacked event, where we’ll finally, and officially, see the Note 5 and S6 Edge+. Leaks have given us tons of spoilers, but there are still questions about these devices. One of these is if Samsung has taken the time after debuting the S6 Edge to concoct more features and make those curved edges more worthwhile.
Being an S6 Edge owner myself, I’ve begun to question if I would buy another Edge device. While the edges are neat, they seem a bit superfluous. Fortunately, it seems like Samsung has recognized that and will bring more Edge exclusive features.
According to a report via Phone Probe, the “People edge” feature in the S6 Edge+ will be enhanced. Previously, all you could do was store five favorite contacts, with the options to call, text, or e-mail them. Now, the feature will have a second page, which can store five favorite application shortcuts.
Samsung has also added functions to your contacts. When you select a contact, you’ll open up “OnCircle” and have six shortcuts now: call, video chat, message, e-mail, send a picture, and even send an emoticon.
This is all we have for now, so stay tuned to hear more about the S6 Edge+ from Samsung’s Unpacked event on Thursday!
