As most of you have surely heard – the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ are now official. Samsung unveiled the pair of phablets at the June 13 Unpacked event and quite unsurprisingly, the announcement is already causing waves in our top ten chart.
The aforementioned Note5 managed to swoop in, mere hours after its announcement and take the second spot away from the OnePlus 2. Interestingly enough, however, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is still nowhere to be found in the top ten chart at the time of writing this article. This is rather odd, considering Samsung intentionally focused attention towards the edged model, slightly neglecting the Note and even limiting its EU availability for the time being. Judging from fan interest, however, it appears the Korean giant might have overlooked the Note a little too soon, as loyal fans are still showing their love for the legendary productivity line. But back to the chart.
At first place we find the Moto G (3rd gen) for yet another week. It seems the allure of a budget-friendly, “vanilla Android” device is still going strong. At third place we see another familiar device – the Galaxy Grand Prime. It is followed closely by the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy S6, which have swapped places since last week and are now at fourth and sixth respectively.
The aforementioned OnePlus 2 has really dropped in interest during the past few days. That’s particularly confusing given that the smartphone official sales just started.
In the bottom half of the chart we find a rather odd new entry at seventh place – the budget-friendly Galaxy J5. This is its unexpected debut on the chart, so we can only imagine it is tied to an ongoing sales promotion and should be shot lived. Then again, we did say the same about the Lenovo K3 Note well over a month ago and it is still hanging on to the list, although dropping in popularity and now at eight place.
At the very bottom of the scoreboard we find the Galaxy A5, down a spot and the iPhone 6, which once managed to reenter the chart after a few consecutive weeks of absence.
