South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town of Seoul known as Samsung and its regional partner, Samsung Indonesia recently introduced two new phablets today, such as the GALAXY Note 5 and the GALAXY S6 Edge+. The two phones are nearly the same with only two significant differences which is the Note has a pen while the Edge+ trades in the pen for a curved “dual edge” display. You might have notice that the global technology brand has ditched its Note brand for a more stylish phablet. Furthermore, both the GALAXY Note 5 and S6 Edge+ feature a 5.7 inch AMOLED display, 2.560 by 1.440-pixel resolution, run on Exynos eight-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 3.000 mAh battery that Samsung says will offer all-day battery life. Along with those processors, both of the smartphones are getting great camera that in some cases are better than your iPhone 6, have sealed glass backplates joined to the to the front touchscreen by way of an aluminum frame that will not open, and do not have the additional microSD card slot. So there you have it, two great phablet-phones from Samsung that will be available from all four major North America carriers and land in stores starting August 21st. While the Asian regional will begin taking orders might later on September 2015.

Aside having two great phones, the South Korean company also introduced a new mobile payment system by the name of Samsung Pay. This system will be available first through the GALAXY Note 5 and the GALAXY S6 Edge+. It is definitely their answer to the Apple Pay system which was launched during the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus presentation. For those who are familiar with Apple Pay, this system will also allow people to pay at stores with major credit cards by simply waving their phones in front of the sensor of cashier, authenticating their identity with a fingerprint scan. Furthermore, it will support some retailer credit and loyalty cards, which Apple Pay does not. But the more crucial differentiator of Samsung Pay is that its technology works in many places that Apple Pay and the forthcoming Google Android Pay do not. It can talk to traditional magnetic credit card readers. This technology could works due to the Near-Field Communication technology and its broadcasts short-range wireless fields that share data magnetically. According to Samsung, the magnetic-stripe readers that are in every store just think of Samsung Pay as another plastic credit card, yet it has the modern security and identity protection of the competing contactless payments. For those of you who are willing to use the system, it will debut as Beta on August 2015 and will continue to all Note 5 and S6 Edge+ users on September or October 2015.
