Remember back in 2015 when Samsung used to rule the smartphone industry with its Galaxy S6 Edge Plus flagship? Well, it looks like Samsung has forgotten all about that since it has announced today that Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 will not receive any more securities updates.
Google and Samsung roll out monthly security updates that prevent hackers and malicious software from targeting smartphones, but Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 will not get them anymore.
No More Security Updates
Even though the fact that Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 are not entitled to receive any more securities update, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Samsung wants its fan base to purchase newer smartphones and this is one of the ways of “convincing” fans to consider upgrading their old Galaxy S6 Edge Plus or Galaxy Note 5 to one of the latest Galaxy S9 or Galaxy Note 9.
On the bright side of things, the two Samsung smartphones have been equipped with the best hardware parts available on the market back in 2015 and this makes them eligible to be daily carriers to this day. In fact, let’s check out some of the key hardware specs that Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has to offer and see for ourselves.
Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Overview
Galaxy S6 Edge Plus used to be a bestselling smartphone and it ships with a large 5.7-inches panel. The panel uses Super AMOLED display technology which is now considered as a trademark feature for Samsung smartphones, but it was quite a rarity in 2015.
Furthermore, the Super AMOLED display offers a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560 and a pixel density of 518 ppi (pixels per inch). Although, the most important piece of hardware that Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has to offer is its Exynos 7420 octa-core CPU that clocks at 2.1GHz.
