The Korean hulk doesn’t routinely dump flagship smartphones in Aug though is presumably anticipating to sow the limelight by announcing new pack in what is typically a idle month for tech news — before a hype cycle spins adult again come September, when Apple typically unboxes new iPhones.

Here’s a discerning outline of a new additions to Samsung’s handset Galaxy, that will be alighting in some 7,000 sell stores in a U.S. for preview starting from tomorrow (but on sale globally after this month):

The S-Pen stylus has also had an refurbish — with an “all new” design, and, says Samsung, softened essay capabilities (albeit it pronounced that during a final Note update…), including the ability to jot down info even when a shade is off.

Users can also now explain PDF files regulating a S-Pen, and constraint a whole website from tip to bottom using a Scroll Capture feature. And a coop is easier to remove from a kennel inside a Note, interjection to a “one click” descent mechanism.

Galaxy S6 Edge+

The Galaxy S6 Edge+ updates one of dual new flagships Samsung unboxed behind in Mar during a Mobile World Congress trade uncover — namely the S6 Edge.

The flagship underline of that handset was a shade with winding edges. Those curves brief over now to the S6 Edge+ though a altogether distance of a shade has also been increasing to phablet distance — so it’s been bumped adult from 5.1 inches to 5.7 inches. As with a S6 Edge, a winding edges can be used as a by-pass from any shade to access top contacts and apps, by swiping along a edge. The S6 Edge already had a hit shortcuts, though this time you’ll be means to pin your favorite apps as well.

Multimedia focus

Both inclination competition improved video stabilization when sharpened from a front or behind camera, according to Samsung.  There’s also a new video collage mode that allows users to fire and revise brief videos some-more easily, adding several frames and effects. And a 4K Video filming underline to record calm for 4K TVs.

A full HD Live Broadcast choice lets users instantly tide video true from a phone to any individual, organisation of contacts, or by YouTube Live — a la live streaming apps like Meerkat and Periscope. While Samsung touts other camera and audio improvements such as a discerning launch underline (by double clicking a home symbol from any shade to burst into a camera), and support for UHQA for richer audio quality.
