5 Upcoming Samsung Devices of 2015
From entry level smartphones to spec heavy and flagship ones, Samsung is currently working on a wide range of smartphones which are expected to be unveiled soon. Here, we will give you a preview of 5 upcoming Samsung smartphones and the expected release date of these devices.
Samsung usually unveils their flagship Note series smartphones in Berlin every September at the IFA event and we are expecting the same release date for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It’s going to feature the same 5.7-inch screen showing QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and the classy glass panel design of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Under the hood, it will be packing Exynos 7422 which will be paired with 4GB of RAM. There are no changes in the camera specs so there is a 16-megapixel shooter on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. One of the major change is the battery size which is 4,100mAh. There are rumors about the smartphone to show up with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus version in August.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 is one of the lightest smartphones from Samsung with only 5.3oz weight and 5.9mm thin. Just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the display is a big 5.7-inch one showing 1920 x 1080 pixels and is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The mid-range phone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor under the hood with 2GB of RAM. Some notable features of this smartphone are: 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera and 3050mAh Li-Ion battery. It’s expected to show up on the third quarter of 2015 and will be slightly pricy than its predecessor.
As the Plus in the title suggests, it will be a bigger and better version of the current Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will feature the same design with a bigger 5.7-inch display and QHD resolution. It also comes with the RAM issue fix that some users faced in the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The 16-megapixel rear camera now supports taking images in RAW format and includes Optical Image Stabilization. However, following the footsteps of its predecessor, it won’t include the microSD card slot and the battery is non-removable. If everything goes according to the plan, it will be unveiled on August, 12, 2015.
After all these spec heavy and flagship devices, let’s take a look at an entry level smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy V Plus. The display is a quite small 4.0-inch one showing 800 x 480 pixels resolution and it will be running Android KitKat out of the box. The specs are pretty decent for an entry level smartphone under the hood: a dual core processor paired with 512MB of RAM. The built-in space is quite less, only 4GB but it can be expanded to up to 64GB using the microSD card slot. For those who want a smartphone with good camera, this is definitely not the one as it packs a 3.15-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front shooter. However, it’s quite pocket-friendly with a price tag of about 300 AED.
This one is a tablet from Samsung and also the first tablet in the affordable E lineup, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E. It’s quite big and features a 9.6-inch screen showing 720p resolution and 8.5mm thin. The tablet is not really a spec heavy device as it’s a budget tablet and packs a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. The battery is a non-removable 5000mAh Li-Ion one and users can get it in both Wi-Fi only and 3G supported version. Tablets are not very popular for their cameras and users get a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front one in this tablet. It has been already launched in Taiwan so the global release date is also expected to be near.
