Android fans, brace yourselves: two new Samsung Galaxy devices are coming to a store near you.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note5 have new features never before presented to consumers by Samsung in their mobile range.

“The Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 are designed to help us enhance the experience of the biggest moments in our lives,” said Paul Brannen, Vice President of Mobile Solutions for Samsung in a statement.

“Both devices are multimedia powerhouses designed to deliver a brilliant display and an ultimate immersive entertainment experience.”

The screen on the Galaxy S6 edge+ has a seamless edge that appears to curve over the sides of the phone. Both devices will come equipped with live-streaming technology that allows users to do live video broadcasts straight to their YouTube accounts.

With the Note5, multitasking will be easier. Now users can have two apps going side-by-side, simultaneously, and can resize the windows depending on the importance of each one. And you can edit spreadsheets and word documents right on your device with the new Microsoft Office apps.

The “S” Pen is another interesting feature with the Note5. The pen allows you to jot down a quick note, even if the screen is off, or to easily mark up and edit PDF’s.

Samsung is partnering with the Toronto International Film Festival to help spotlight the new devices, and will have an interactive display called the Samsung Booth where movies buffs will be able to catch up on all the latest festival news.
