Galaxy Note 5 And S6 Edge Plus Certified At The FCC, Continuing To Fuel Rumors Of An Early Launch

Several FCC filings for the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and all-but-confirmed Galaxy S6 Edge Plus were located today, including Verizon and AT&T models of each. The N920V (Verizon Note 5), G928V (Verizon S6E+), N920A (AT&T Note 5), and G928A (AT&T S6E+) all have publicly available test information, furthering rumors that the devices will launch earlier than normal.

Normal, by the way, tends to be October here in America. The Galaxy Note 4's street date last year was October 17th in the US and in many countries around the world. This time, the rumor is that a mid-August launch will follow with retail availability just a week later in many markets, and that is quite a shift.

Budget MVNO Ting Officially Recommends The Nexus 6, Complete With Android Police Watermark
