The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ was a big phone, and it may have also been a big mistake. Or at least releasing it in the UK without offering the Note 5 anywhere in Europe was. That is, according to the latest rumor.
A “Techradar source high up” mentions the Korean giant has learnt from its mistakes and they are making things up with the coming flagships. The insider states the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge+ will not be coming to the UK after an onslaught of complaints from Galaxy Note 5 fans.
“Samsung isn’t going to launch the S7 Edge+ in the UK. I got the impression that it had been a bit of a disappointment sales-wise and that the decision to keep the Note 5 out of Europe is now considered a mistake. So our information is that the Note 6 will launch in the UK in August and that there will be no S7 Edge+.”
I still don’t understand why Samsung wouldn’t just release both handsets in these specific markets, but the S7 series continues to be a mystery by now. We can all guess, but the truth is no one knows what Samsung is about to do. It’s possible they just won’t release the S7 Edge+ in the UK, just as it’s possible they won’t release it at all. And that makes a bit of sense; large screen fans do already have the Galaxy Note series around.
Maybe Samsung could just position this phone differently, but all we can do is wait until the truth emerges. Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, and we expect to learn more details there. Meanwhile, we will keep our eyes and ears open… and our fingers typing. Be sure we will get you all the latest rumors and news, so stay tuned.
But tell us, guys. Do you think there is a need for another large handset in the Galaxy S series? Do you think the Note smartphones are enough? Hit the comments to let us know!
