The Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus is a bigger variant of the S6 Edge and both the Edge Plus and Note 5 come with a 5.7″ display that fits in the same footprint as the iPhone 6 Plus which Samsung brings up in all their press events. The Galaxy Edge Plus and Note 5 come with built-in faster wireless charging which takes one hour less charging.

The Galaxy Edge Plus even has a new case Samsung called the Keyboard Cover which comes with a hardware keyboard for the Note 5. Both phones will also support the newly announced Samsung Pay. By the way these two phablets come with nearly the same specifications:
