The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ has a powerful camera designed to capture life’s most important and stylish seconds.

Paired with the next generation wireless audio accessories, including Samsung Level On Wireless Pro, it creates a revolutionary listening experience worthy of the soundtrack of your life.

Wireless & Super-Fast Charging

As Ferris Bueller once famously said “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it”. The fast charging capabilities and embedded wireless charging technology ensure that your device can keep up with life, so you don’t miss it, no matter where you go, or how fast you go there. The enhanced charging capability was designed to fully power a device in approximately 90 minutes (wired) and approximately 120 minutes (wireless). Plus, the Ultra Saving Mode preserves battery life for hours, ensuring your phone’s performance keeps pace with your lifestyle. The innovative power and performance of both features, mean you’ll never be left powerless. Worth noting though, that you’ll need to get yourself a Wireless Charging Pad to take advantage of this – sold separately.

Fashionable features include various photo filters, Steady Video which allows for shakeless recording, real time HDR to control exposure, speed control so you can capture slow motion, and Video Clip mode with a video collage and slow motion video editor, giving you the options to be your own model, photographer and art director all in one. And then of course there’s the sound – with Ultra High Quality Audio helping users enjoy crystal clear sounds from their phone for an even more immersive multimedia experience.

Easy and Protected Mobile Payment

Sometimes you just don’t have room in that little black dress for a purse! Who wants to ruin the perfect outfit with bags and wallets overflowing? Samsung Pay offers a seamless mobile payment process, available on the Galaxy S6 edge+ (as well as the Galaxy S6, S6 edge and Note5). It’s as simple as authenticating and paying. It is the only mobile payment solution accepted virtually anywhere (although is only compatible with select cards) meaning that nomatter where you are, or what you need to pay for, you can do so with a tap.

Security wise – you’re also covered. Protected by Samsung KNOX, fingerprint scanning, and advanced tokenization, Samsung Pay works with both Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology to make it device, merchant and card issuer agnostic. Prasad Gokhale – Vice President, IT & Mobile at Samsung Australia, says of this technology; “Mobile payment technologies are an immensely exciting category in which Samsung continues to innovate. Samsung Electronics Australia is currently working with local financial institutions to customise Samsung Pay with an anticipated launch in 2016. We look forward to sharing more information closer to the launch.”

Gokhale says; “We believe these devices represent the next generation of smartphones and a pivotal step for Samsung’s mobile industry. They are proof of Samsung’s continued commitment to developing the most advanced and high performance mobile devices possible.” At the end of the day, the consumer wins as the competition in the mobile technology industry drives the quality of product and interactive experience through the virtual roof for us.
