VIVA, Kuwait’s fastest-growing and most developed telecom operator, announced the launch of two new devices, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. The devices are available for customers at all VIVA’s branches, authorized dealers or VIVA’s E-Store starting 23 August 2015.

VIVA’s postpaid customers interested in obtaining the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus can do so by subscribing to one of the competitive packages on offer. Customers can get the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (32GB) and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (32GB) for free by subscribing to the KD55 plan, or they can subscribe to the KD40 and KD 30 plans and receive the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (32GB) or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (32GB) with upfront amount, depending on the package that best suits their needs.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop, bolstered by Samsung's own TouchWiz layer. That means the phone will be able to tie into Google's wide array of services (like Google Now, turn-by-turn navigation and access to Drive files), while also tapping into Samsung's own software, all of which customizes the display's look and feel. It features a 5.7-inch display (2,560x1,440 pixels). The display is 5.7-inch display and has a 16-megapixel camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 4K video resolution as well as a Live broadcasting to YouTube feature. The Note 5 also runs with Exynos 7 Octa-core processor, a 2.1GHz quad-core chip, plus a second 1.5GHz quad-core chip for lower-powered tasks, 32GB/64GB storage options, and 4GB of RAM.

Quite similarly, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has many of the same features as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, with the main difference being the edge on the sides of the device. One feature addition is App Edge, which lets you set aside certain apps as favorites for quick access from the side of the screen.
