Samsung just announced its new big Galaxy phones — the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Both phones will go on sale August 21, but we’ll have to wait to hear from carriers on pricing.

The Galaxy Note 5 is the newest phone in Samsung’s Note line that’s been around since 2011, while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is essentially a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge, but with some minor additions.

Both phones have 5.7-inch screens with resolutions of 2560 x 1440, which means they’re larger and sharper than the display on the iPhone 6 Plus.

The Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are both powered by the same processor (a Samsung-made Exynos 7420) that has eight cores, which means they should be able to multitask easily (the more cores there are in a processor, the more tasks it can handle at once without any hiccups).

The main difference between the two new devices, according to Samsung, is that the Note 5 is really aimed at productivity (i.e. editing Google Docs, taking notes) while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is meant for media consumption (watching Netflix, etc).

Some other core details — both new Galaxy phones feature a 16-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, run Android 5.1 Lollipop, and have 4GB of RAM (that’s a lot for a phone). Both devices come with a new feature that allows you to broadcast video in real-time to YouTube directly from the Camera app.

Samsung seems to have borrowed some design elements from the Galaxy S6 — both phones have glossy, smooth glass backs and metal incorporated into the build. That also means the backs aren’t removeable and there’s no SD card slot — so you can’t swap out the battery or add more storage to your phone.
