Galaxy S6 Edge+ to have enhanced Edge functionality

We are but only two days away from Samsung’s Unpacked event, where we’ll finally, and officially, see the Note 5 and S6 Edge+.

However, if these documents are found to be true, we may see Sammy start using Snapdragon processors again in the Galaxy S7 series. S7 Series?
