Samsung Has Started Bringing Galaxy S6 Edge+ Features To The S6 And S6 Edge

With the Galaxy S6 edge+ now official, fans are looking forward to experiencing Samsung's recent double-sided curve design on a phablet scale. But, besides the extra classy screen real estate, the recent phone also brings a few recent software features and tweaks.

From a software perspective, the S6 edge+ has perhaps become best known for the recent Apps Edge interface that leverages the curvy display for convenient application switching. Luckily, Samsung has realized the universal appeal of such an interface and is now bringing it to other models in its lineup. Currently these are the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge flagships.

New UI

Apps Edge is already seeding via OTA to the assumed phones in Korea( with other markets sure to follow soon), along with a few other S6 edge+ goodies, like UHD upscaler and Vacuum Tube Amp Pro, as well as recent icons, UI improvements and updates to KNOX and Samsung Pay. This is definitely fine news for S6 and S6 edge owner, but there are still a few novelties that Samsung has decided to leave as an exclusive offer on the S6 edge+, for now at least.

Most notably – the ability to shoot RAW format photos, as well as some other advanced capturing camera features, like shutter speed control aren’t part of the assumed OTA. However, Samsung has included other tweaks to the S6 and S6 edge capturing camera experience, like YouTube broadcasting mode, so it appears that the decision to leave out RAW is a perfectly conscious and intentional one, probably motivated by apparent marketing reasons.

But, we can't really be mad at Samsung for looking after the best interest of its recent products and ensuring they are desirable. Hopefully, as the excitement dies out around the S6 edge+, the Korean tech giant will carry over the remaining cool features as well.
