Samsung Galaxy Tab A coming to T-Mobile on August 19

For the remainder of 2015, Android fans preparing to upgrade will have plenty of devices to choose from, but two of the latest phones stand out in the crowd: the Galaxy Note 5 and the OnePlus 2. The S6 Edge+ is naturally somewhat akin to the existing Galaxy S6, with an attractive dual-edged display already winning plaudits from fans of the Galaxy series. There is a new feature that allows users to use the S-Pen to scribble on the display even when the phone is off. For example, you can eject the stylus while the phone is asleep and start writing a note on the handset’s display without even waking it. The edges of the screen that curve are where your select navigation and control buttons sit, and are able to change operation based on the apps you use. Like the original, there’s support for wireless and fast charging, and Samsung claims that you can juice the device to full in less than 90 minutes. The phone is powered by a 2,020mAh battery and Samsung claims you can get 189 hours of standby time.

The 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5 model (32 GB) will be priced at 25,900 baht. The report also said that the new aspect ratio is making its new tablets ideal for reading and web browsing. There could be some confusion about the two devices, as the Galaxy S6 Edge+ looks to be an entirely new product line, but is in fact effectively a sequel to last year’s Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung Pay is a payment solution with built-in fingerprint sensor for authentication and supports both NFC and older Magnetic type terminals. Not bad right? As for colors, you will have the option to choose between, Black, White, and Champagne Beige. However the company also is promoting another technology called Magnetic Secure Transmission, or MST.
