On Thursday morning at a live Unpacked event in New York City, Samsung unveiled its latest slate of phablets: the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+. These two large devices will supplement the S6 and S6 edge which released in the spring, giving Samsung a sizable lineup to stock on store shelves over the holiday season.

Both phones are packed with the latest, greatest mobile hardware, including 5.7-inch quad HD displays, 64-bit octacore chipsets and 4GB of RAM. You can see the full list in our extensive specs post.

Samsung believes that the Note 5 will be the right choice for multitaskers, as it easily fits in one hand despite its size and comes equipped with a new and improved S Pen. On the other hand, multimedia lovers might want to look into the S6 edge+, which for all intents and purposes is a stretched out S6 edge with a big, beautiful screen and the familiar dual edges.
