The embedded wireless charging capability is compatible with a range of wireless pads available in the market today. Both smartphones can be fully charged in approximately 90 minutes (wired) and approximately 120 minutes (wireless) when using Samsung’s own wireless fast charger (sold separately).

The Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note 5 feature Samsung’s proprietary 64-bit octa core processor, to ensure that the smartphones are fast, powerful, and efficient. Continuing to set the bar in camera technology, both devices feature 16MP rear-facing and 5MP front-facing cameras and a range of still and video camera features for photography lovers. Samsung’s advanced camera system also includes Quick launch, Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and Steady Video.

The dual edge screen of the S6 edge+ features ‘Apps edge’ to allow easy access to favourite apps and the enhanced ‘People edge’ for quick access to favourite contacts. ‘People edge’ allows Australians to send hand-written memos and emoticons to their favourite contacts, in addition to calls, messages and email access.

The Galaxy Note 5 includes an enhanced S Pen that offers improved writing capabilities. The new Air Command is available to use upon removal of the S Pen and its functions are quickly accessible. Users can also annotate full webpages and whole images, with an improved Screen Write feature.

The devices are supported with the Samsung’s KNOX, a security platform designed to help protect data from malicious attacks and help deliver security updates quickly and effectively. Samsung KNOX can also be tailored to the specific security requirements of businesses in the enterprise space.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Note 5 are available for pre-order now and are expected to be on-sale from Friday, 4 September, from RRP $1,099.
